Aerial Photographer Robert Campbell

Today I heard about a wonderful aerial photograph book of Point Reyes by aerial photographer Robert CampbellPoint Reyes and the San Andreas Fault Zone, is a self-published book by Campbell that shows Point Reyes from an angle that the vast majority of us have never experienced. What I find amazing about aerial photography is the way a common scene can become so abstract when viewed from above, especially if low light and shadows come into play.

Campbell had an early interesting in photography and studied it at San Francisco State College.  Eventually he became interested in aerial photography and became a pilot flying air frieght.  After leaving the air freight business, he returned to his passion of photography.  His website, while currenlty under construction, has a number of amazing aerial photographs from the bay area and northern california.

A while back I put a call out to photographer pilots after one of my comercial flights I took for business travel.  It’s exciting to see some one local who might have experienced the same thing I did and is still out chasing that view from above.  As previously mentioned, I’m hoping to catch some of that tomorrow in Las Vegas…
