ERX Motorpark : Andrew Carlson #151 [Bryan]

When action sports photographer Aaron Belford approached me on shooting video, and aerial imagery for Carlson Motorsports I couldn't refuse. During his off season Pro-Lite Rider Andrew Carlson does anything but relax.  When Andrew isn't racing his snowmobiles in the AMSOIL Snowcross series, or at the X Games, he is out on his dirt bike or UTV.  We were capturing Andrew breaking in his new Polaris RZR Xp1000 UTV at ERX Motorpark in Elk River, MN.

Here are some of my favorite images.

Aerial Photography : 101 [Bryan]

Along side photography I love capturing video, I'm also a MAJOR nerd. I always try to find ways to combine the two whenever possible. With the current technology in RC flight systems ever-increasing, flying a camera several hundred feet in the air has become something almost anyone can do. Some people call these "Drones" or "UAV's" enthusiasts generally call them Multirotors. I'm currently testing and tuning a 6 rotor monster that will fly anything from a GoPro to my full frame D800. To get a hang of things I have started with smaller and simple to fly. That brings us to the 350 QX:Blade this little guy will fly a GoPro miles in the sky. Using GPS to collect altitude, speed, and location this multirotor is a powerful little package.

Here are a few shots from my maiden flight with the Blade. Processed with VSCOcam with f1 preset

All went well and everything was in 1 piece when I ended my flight.

I will have a post or two in the near future showcasing some video and the larger 6 rotor monster!
