We’re thrilled to have found out that one of our aerial images was chosen in ENR’s 2012 The Year In Construction Photo Contest! The shot was taken from a helicopter, about 1,200 feet above this storm drain installation project in Charleston, Tennessee. The photo was shot for Wright Brothers Construction.

We are among some great winners and were also lucky enough to have a photo chosen in the runner ups! The image is taken of workers with Kovach Building Enclosures install Kovabond to the exterior of the guitar shaped roof on Music City Center in Nashville. This is one of the many layers that make up the skin on the 6 Acre project.

Aerial Innovations of Georgia, Inc. would like to thank Benjamin C. Ridgeway for including our aerial photographs in his book documenting the history of Ebenezer Baptist Church. Ebenezer (Stone of Help) was founded in 1886 in the old Fourth Ward of Atlanta. Michael Luther King moved to Atlanta from Stockbridge, Georgia in 1918, began his three-year minister’s degree program at the Morehouse School of Religion in 1926. He married Alberta Williams that same year at Ebenezer Church. After being assistant pastor from 1927 to 1930 he assumed the duties of pastor in 1931. Reverend King, Sr. changed his name from Michael Luther King to Martin Luther King Sr. after his fathers death in 1933. In 1960, Martin Luther King Jr. became the first co-pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Horizon Sanctuary at Ebenezer Baptist Church
The Atlanta architectural firm of Stanley, Love-Stanley was chosen to design the Horizon Sanctuary. It is modeled after an African tribal meeting hut. The roof ribbing is reminiscent of African thatch. The bell tower is a weave and glyph patterned obelisk. Placement of the Horizon Sanctuary on Auburn Avenue emphases Ebenezer’s strong commitment to its urban mission as a becon of hope for all citizens of Metro Atlanta.
Copies of the ‘Images of Americia, Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church’ can be obtained from Arcadia Publishing and is in the Library of Congress (control # 2009923608)
Aerial Innovations of Georgia is excited to have the cover shot of Auto Pilot magazine for the Georgia November/December issue. The photograph features our pilot Ron Carroll and Sonny Perdue, the Governer of Georgia.
We also have additional photos accompanying the feature story about Ron and his company, Blue Ridge Helicopters. There is a double spread photo of Ron and Sadie, his Blue Heeler Australian Caddle dog……..We believe she stole the show!! Check it out if you get a chance.
Ron and Sadie
We wrote a few weeks ago about our own Sheri Christianson, owner of Aerial Innovations of GA, Inc., having the Governor of GA as her co-pilot. Since that post, the Governor has earned his Private Rotor Craft License. See the article in Vertical Magazine. Keep those blades up, Sonny!
Governor Sonny Perdue and Sheri
Lately we’ve been thinking abstractly about what we do:
And the results will soon be seen at Tampa International Airport.
It’s important to remember the beauty that surrounds us. It’s not always about the next site, sometimes you just have to remember to look down and keep your mind open.
And as an added bonus, Channel 10 did a story on it.
