As an Engineer, he recognized the value of UAV’S ( Unmanned Aerial Vehicles ) from the STEM aspect. The first time he saw a UAV or (drone) he was so impressed by this media platform that within one month he had purchased his first UAV, that was August 2014.

Friday January 5th Featuring James Rodewald
We are delighted to have our monthly First Friday Local Artist and Complimentary Wine Tasting 5 till 7 Friday January 5th Featuring James Rodewald. Happy Hour is served throughout the restaurant 5-7. James is a freelance nature photographer with over thirty years of experience in nature and landscape photography. Although the Southeastern Adirondacks are his current home, he has lived in various places across New York including the High Peaks and Finger Lakes regions and have traveled extensively throughout the United States. His work tends to focus upon places that are wild and untouched by development, often with no signs of humanity. Despite decades of experience he has recently only begun to offer his work to the public. This Fall he launched his new company Nature's Sake Photography, a socially responsible nature photography studio featuring his work. The core principle of this venture is a firm commitment that no less than 10% of the profit from all sales are donated to help fund the organizations that protect the land that was photographed. So far that has included the Adirondack Council, the Lake George Land Conservancy, Riverkeeper and the New York Nature Conservancy.
