Ship shoot!
It's always a pleasure to work with consummate professionals such as Seatrans, demonstrated by their attentiveness and willingness to co operate fully with my requirements, to enable me to be aware at all times of what could have been a very unpredictable situation and so ensure a mutually beneficial outcome.
It appears this Norwegian company is as much appreciative of my efforts as I am of theirs and they reciprocated by way of an unsolicited 'thank you' email following successful completion of the work and delivery of their images.
Portion of the email from Seatrans;
"And once again John, thank you for helping out. Nice to know someone that can do the job properly. Will give you my best recommandations."

Open water rendezvous on a promotional photo shoot for Seatrans in cooperation with the ship's master for accurate positioning as requested by company head office in Bergen to our pre arranged point - even the weather co-operated, eventually.

Following is a sample extract of communications with their Office Headquarters in Bergen as the ship approached the shoot location.
Sample edited portions here, when only a couple of jittery hours to go;

> Currently overcast with high cloud and some lower cloud  moving in from the north west as if a front is passing.
No constant rain yet, just a few  drops.  A little gusty.
According to what I see on weather satellites the cloud may pass

to sunshine and showers again by the time we need to shoot.
Overcast skies would mean that the sea will not be blue. The  sea could be dark grey at lower angles or maybe dark green at higher angles in photos.

She has appeared again on ------- and is currently south of Dunmore East,
weather; a little darker than last update.

Thanks John!
I'll send an e-mail to the vessel telling them to keep you updated.
Hopefully the sun will shine in an hour or two.
Make the best out of it and revert with updates.

Ooo, not good but still - let us keep our fingers crossed.
Trans Fjell is informed and hopefully the master will give you an update asap.

Still in one piece. I will send sample shots in a few minutes.
That rain was serious - passed just in time with some sunshine.
The ship was in contact throughout.

Property promotion using library aerial images; Feb 6th 2013
use of library aerial images   When considering making use
of aerial images to promote a
property sale, it's not always
necessary to commission an
aerial shoot if images already
exist in an aerial library collection.

This property at Ballyrisode near Goleen and Schull in West Cork is about to come to the market
but due to weather and seasonal reasons making use of existing imagery made more sense to show it at its best.
property promotion use of library aerial images  

Use of library images are
conditional on adding graphic
elements as indicated here to
make the image specific for its
intended use and to deter
unauthorised copying for other purposes, especially when applied to the web.

This branding logotype was devised in-house with the client's input and direction, then embedded in the image prior to final delivery.
These images are licensed for the duration of the sale.

aerial images in property promotion   This is a beautiful beachfront property in a stunning location consisting of circa 40 acres and with good main road frontage.

When agents are appointed, I will add them here.
In the meantime should anyone want to express an interest then contact this site in advance of the official launch and I will pass on your enquiry.
