Drone whizz, top photographer and former Brownhills lad Steve Martin has been kind enough once more to send me not one, but two batches of images this weekend of familiar places around the local area, photographed from an aerial point of view – this first, above, features some great shots of Chasewater, Brownhills Common and Birch Coppice.
Steve uses a professional-level DJI drone, and is very skilled in using it to obtain stunning images and video – his last gallery, of Brownhills by night, was immensely popular. A few months ago, I featured film and images Steve kindly shared from a daytime flight where he recreated a wonderful 1960s image of Brownhills as it is today.
Iknow Steve is also working on some very interesting video that will take your breath away – but I’ll hold back on the preview of that until it’s ready.
You can regularly see other examples of Steve’s work on his usual haunt, the popular and fascinating Old photos from Hednesford, Chadsmoor and Cannock group on Facebook,
Steve grew up in Brownhills where his family had the chip shop that used to be on the Lichfield Road, Brownhills for a while, and Steve has great memories of the Lichfield Road area, of which I’m still looking for old images if you know to any, please do get in touch.
Thanks to Steve for yet another beautiful gallery, and Steve is happy to talk about his work if you’re interested. You can hook up with him on Facebook here.
