A few weeks ago we covered our construction photography process. We discussed how on these projects we get to tell a story with our camera — essentially acting as photojournalists/documentarians. Although we have covered a number of our numerous photography … Continue reading →
We love to show off our best images every quarter. These past few months have been quite eventful for us photographically (new buildings opening, bridges getting blown up, beautiful sunrise and twilight shoots, a magnificent soccer facility…and more!) See some of our pics below and be sure to visit our main gallery for all our best pics. Oh, and almost forgot, the most beautiful landscape in the world, our own Tennessee Rivers. Who has the best job? (lucky you get to come along.) Enjoy!

Another 3 months have come and gone since our last image review and boy have we been busy!! It was a beautiful spring and we had so many great opportunities for spectacular photo shoots including a night shoot in Owensboro, KY, 3 days of ground photos in Memphis, and watching the new Acme building in Nashville come together. (See if you can spot Johnny Cash..and Senator Lamar Alexander.) For your enjoyment, we have gathered the best of the best; aerial, ground and creative. Did your project make it? Do you have a favorite? Let us know!!
Today marks year number Nine here at Aerial Innovations of Tennessee. We went through our archives and chose one (or two) images from each year to produce a sort of stroll down memory lane. Remember all the WalMarts being built? And Belmont Campus before the beautiful School of Nursing Building went up? And what about that big patch of dirt at the southeast of Memphis International? It finally turned into the Air National Guard compound. There were floods at our airports, new convention centers, new museums, public parks….well, take a look and enjoy the trip…we sure have!
**All photos were taken in June of their respective years (and some are on film (!))
In Order: 2003 – Nashville Stadium and Skyline (before LP!); 2004 – Start of the Hunter Museum, Chattanooga, shot for EMJ; 2005 – Belmont shot for RC Mathews and Public Square shot for Brasfield & Gorrie; 2006 – Memphis Airport TANG project shot for APAC; 2007 – Kentucky area WalMarts shot for DBS (we had about 10 on our flights!); 2008 – One North Shore in Chattanooga; 2009 – Maryville College shot for Messer; 2010 – Louisville’s Yum! Arena shot for Mortenson; 2011 – Dewitt Spain Airport after the flood waters had receded; 2012 – Music City Center shot for Bell/Clark; 2013 – ???
Aerial Innovations is proud to announce two of our newest ‘big’ jobs. We’ll be shooting the Music City Convention Center (congratulations Nashville!) as well as the new Memphis Airport Parking Garage. We are so excited to watch the construction progress on these sites. There is nothing like seeing things grow from the air. We hope our images can help other businesses involved in the projects as well!
Our other efforts during this time have been concentrated on our new networking group, WINC (Women in Networking & Construction). You may have seen us out ‘blitzing’ recently. We’re visiting all over the Middle Tennessee area with our gals (mostly women-owned, DBE certified businesses) to help keep everyone aware of the wonderful services we have available to the greater Nashville area. We have something to offer everyone so check us out! We’ll be in the Wilson County area on Thursday, Feb. 11th. Check us out at http://www.winctn.com/.
The girls of Aerial Innovations TN got a chance to visit one of their major projects on the ground, the Nissan Headquarters in Franklin TN. The AGC Middle TN Chapter sponsored the tour and included an insider’s view to executive offices, kitchen, cafeteria, a newly developed wetlands and, most exciting, the Car Salon.
The Car Salon is a full size photography studio specifically for shooting new vehicles (they even have their own “dressing room”!) In the studio, the entire ceiling is a daylight balanced wall to wall light box. The walls are a seemless mid-tone gray background which they can project anything onto. The seemless part is engineered into the room to prevent any corners or abnormal gradation…a lot of thought was put into this! (maybe a few photographers on the design team….??)
So, when you see those flashy new car ads for Nissan…you’ll know how much simpler they are to shoot than the old fashioned “box studio”. (are they going to have rental time for this thing??)
Thanks to AGC and Skanska (our client on the project), we’ve had fun seeing you build! Congratulations on the dedication, July 23, 2008..welcome to Nashville!
