Center Pointe Apartments for Novus Architects

I’ve been enjoying some challenging yet rewarding assignments from Novus Architects recently.

The latest request was for some updated photos of Center Pointe Apartments that showcase the grand scope of the project. Normally a great way to do that is from the air. So I would typically recommend incorporating drone shots. However, this apartment complex is sandwiched between Tanger Outlets and the Boeing plant…directly in the approach-path of incoming aircraft for runway 33 at the Charleston International Airport!

Being an FAA certified drone pilot, I knew the drone was out. However, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help me gain elevation and create shots that look like I’m hovering several feet off the ground. With my “angel cam” in tow (also dubbed the world’s longest selfie-stick), I was able to take my Nikon D850 with the 14-24 f2.8 Nikkor lens attached and raise it several stories into the air to get exactly the perspective I needed!

It was a beautiful day and the shots came out great. 🙂
