Drones to snap beach cup

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph Rockingham Beach Cup - Gareth McKnight

While there will be plenty of busy vol­un­teers and work­ers be­hind the scenes this week­end at the Rock­ing­ham Beach Cup, two of the busiest peo­ple on the ground will be tasked with cap­tur­ing iconic images of the event.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Kings­ley Klau and drone op­er­a­tor Al­lan God­ley will be on hand to doc­u­ment the fes­tiv­i­ties, both on the ground and in the air.

Mr Klau was in­volved last year and said it would be a busy week­end.

“It is a big re­spon­si­bil­ity but I am hon­oured to be a part of it,” he said. “The chal­lenges are the speed of the horses, cov­er­ing the length of the race, the crowds and quite dif­fi­cult light­ing. How­ever, I guess try­ing to cover the feel of the event is the big chal­lenge.

“Last year it was one day but this year you have the whole week­end — there will be a lot of pho­tos taken and a lot of long hours at home get­ting them edited and up on­line.”

Mr God­ley of Cre­ative Drone Work will have an eye in the sky to cap­ture the crowd flock­ing to the fore­shore and all the ac­tion on the beach.

Some of his hand­i­work will be fed to a big screen in the Rock­ing­ham Ho­tel carpark. “I am look­ing for­ward to it,” he said.
