As a young architect, Chris wanted sharp images of his buildings’ upper reaches, so he pioneered the art/science of of kite aerial photography KAP. Now a professor of architecture at UC Berkeley, Chris is still a leader in the aerial kite photography community, constantly developing new ways to rig remotely controlled cameras to customized kites for stunning results. Also, see the centuries-old technique of using kites to lift people in the air! Watch the clip, and check out Chris’ website: http://www.arch.ced.berkeley.edu/kap/index.html
