Brooks Leffler, of Pacific Grove, California, is a former television producer who has been, in his own word, “messing” with kites for a quarter of a century. He started taking pictures from a kite line in 1989 when he wanted to use a photo of a kite from above in a magazine advertisement. Dropping out of broadcasting in l982, he ran a kite shop in the Washington area before eventually moving to California. Leffler served as executive director of the American Kitefliers Association and for years edited the definitive Kite Aerial Photography Journal, a quarterly. He has conducted workshops and produced two international KAP conferences. He has designed and built on commission more than 100 aerial camera systems and sells do-it-yourself kits to the technically minded.
