Thought I’d share some of the instagram posts that George has been posting about our collaboration with Aries and Adorama. What a great experience to work with him – very inspiring in his process and how he works. Unflinching in both thrill seeking and expectation of quality.
Steve Cohen and George Steinmetz (@geosteinmetz) getting ready to take pictures with the new Aries drone on waterfront in Liberty State Park, New Jersey. We got down there before sunrise, and while the sun only came out for a few minutes all morning, the drone could launch with almost no set-up. It was like we had our own robotic falcon, but this one actually took directions, and pictures. Photograph by Brad Groznik, with thanks to @Adorama for the loaner. #AriesDrone (Aries Blackbird X10). "It'll never fly Orville!"
Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz My first drone picture! Who says an old dog can’t learn new tricks, at the old Central Railroad Station in #JerseyCity on a blustery Sunday morning. This is the kind of picture I really couldn’t really do any other way. We had strong winds and were flying much lower than I could with either a helicopter or even my paraglider. The Aries drone went from the trunk of my car to flying in just a few minutes when the sun unexpectedly sun popped out from behind the clouds. With thanks to Steve Cohen for piloting the brand new #AriesDrone, and to @Adorama in NYC for the loan. Scroll down through @geosteinmetz to see more. @thephotosociety
