A franchisee was recently involved in taking some footage of the war memorials in France at the Somme Battlefield.
The work involved images of the memorials and surrounding land and buildings.
Another exciting project for The SkyCam!
With simply breath-taking and eye-opening landscapes, the Somme Battlefield will forever show scars of the War there. There are craters from shells, remains of trenches and many other reminders of the pain suffered there some 100 years ago now.
SkyCam recently had the pleasure of working with a local Artist ‘Ian Mood’.
Ian Moods grandfather was also a local artist and painted scenes in and around Stoke-on-Trent back in the 70’s. However due to illness his grandfather was unable to paint outdoors for any long periods and therefore took some photographs of local scenes with the intention of painting them at a later date in the comfort of his studio. Unfortunately, he sadly passed away before he had the chance to start the work.
Ian has now picked up the baton and is going to complete the work his grandfather started, but instead of using the photos taken back in the 70’s as a reference he would paint the view as it is today. To capture the scenes as they are today is where SkyCam and a drone came in.
Since the photographs were taken, Stoke-on-Trent has changed dramatically.
Instead of the industrial smoke laden vista it was in the 70’s Stoke is now an amazingly green city. In fact we would even go as far as saying it must be one of the greenest cities in the country.
Whilst flying the drone to capture the shots required it was plain to see just how green Stoke-on-Trent really is. Using the drone was in fact essential as the vantage point that Ian’s Grandfather originally captured is no longer available as trees have grown to block the view, which is not a bad thing.
Take a look at the images in this article and you’ll see quite plainly the transformation of the areas Ian is going to capture on canvas.
The SkyCam was asked recently to photograph and video the Caudwell International Children’s Centre (CICC) which is an £18m autism centre opening to cope with lack of support in the UK.
It is an amazing looking building built in the shape of a butterfly, which from the ground you wouldn’t really notice. But from the air you can really see the fantastic building in all its glory.
It is Britain’s first independent centre dedicated to autism diagnosis, therapy and research and is set to open this Autumn at Keele University in Staffordshire and aims to revolutionise the way millions of people in the UK affected by the condition can be helped.
The state-of-the-art Caudwell International Children’s Centre (CICC) will be the first of its kind in the UK and promises to lead the way in multi-disciplinary assessments, family support services and research into a wide range of autism interventions.
Purpose-built with autistic people in mind, it will include state-of-the-art assessment suites, a sensory garden to help children interact with nature, family training suites as well as training kitchens for cooking classes to encourage a healthy diet.
