Official America’s Cup Photographic Prints

December 16, 2016

The first round of images to be released by LookBermuda as part of its official license from the America’s Cup Event Authority are from the 2015 Bermuda World Series races, and feature aerial photography by Jean-Pierre Rouja and racecourse action shots by Chris Burville and Steven Flood.

A spokesperson said, “LookBermuda has always looked for unique ways to better portray Bermuda and document significant events.”

“For the 2015 World-Series it was clear that the racing itself would be well covered by the international and local media, so we set about documenting the activities from alternate angles to showcase the Bermuda backdrop.

“Bermuda from the air is simply stunning, however the use of drones was banned during the racing due to potential conflicts with the helicopter that was used for the ACTV filming.”

“Therefore the only opportunity for aerial photography was at a higher altitude from a small plane, so when one became available we jumped at the opportunity, securing what ended up being the only aerial photography of the event.”

“To be sure we covered all angles, at water level our team included local photographers Chris Burville and Steven Flood who successfully produced alternate racing views and dynamic action racing shots which have also proven to be very popular.”

LookBermuda embargoed the resulting imagery whilst negotiating the licensing agreement with the ACEA and for use in a nautical / America’s Cup theme currently being rolled out as part of LookBermuda’s AirportArt installations.

One of the signature images is the circular racing amphitheater, showcasing the racecourse, the circle of spectator boats and the island in the background.

Another is a gigapixel panorama that was shot from 3,000 ft as the racing fleet and spectator flotilla returned to Hamilton through Two Rock passage.

The panoramic view extends from the Great Sound all the way into Hamilton and was shot specifically for some of the larger Airport walls being of high enough resolution to printed up to 10ft x 40ft.

The museum quality prints are printed on aluminum using the latest dye sublimation process, through which the ink is vaporized and embedded into the aluminum coating. They do not require framing and are impervious to the traditional Bermuda mold / mildew issues.

The prints have a clean modern look and are ready to install with a special rear mounted frame that “floats” them 1 inch off the wall.
