COMMISSIONS
I don't normally take commissions for kite aerial photographs. It's primarily a hobby and my day job suits me just fine.
However, if you have an interesting idea for a Kite Aerial Photography subject or you want to take aerial pictures of your house, company or festivity and can accept it may take months for the right conditions to come along, just drop me a line at through pierre at pierre-lesage dot com. I'm always willing to consider a challenge - especially if you offer an interesting compensation, which need not be of the pecuniary variety.
