This past summer we teamed up with Venture Communications and shot various locations for their client Tourism Calgary. The campaign is just starting to roll out so we thought we would share some of the photos with you.
This first series of photos were shot at the Calgary Folk Music Festival. We were able to shoot at ground level, as well as from the air! We shot journalistic shots until the sun went down. As dusk was approaching, we locked down our tripod and shot the festival goers as a high res panoramic. A total of 9 Hasselblad files were stitched together to make a massive file that can look great no matter how it’s cropped or how large it gets used.
The aerial was shot the following day around sunset. The weather gods cooperated as the light was nice and warm and pretty much as you see here.
The next location we shot at was Heritage Park Historical Village.
In this scenario, we followed a family around and got some journalistic shots of them enjoying the park. One of the images was selected for the cover of the 2015/2016 Visitor Guide.
The next location was at National 8; a great bar in the heart of downtown Calgary, with the largest rooftop patio in Western Canada. Similar to the Folkfest, we shot journalistic until the sun went down and then did a panoramic shot at dusk.
