To supplement the always fine work of speedonthewater.com chief photographer Pete Boden of Shoot 2 Thrill Pix during this weekend’s Ray Nuchereno Memorial Poker Run in Buffalo, N.Y., organizer Anthony Scioli of Elite Poker Runs LLC has contracted Drone Buffalo to capture the event. What’s more, participants can sign up in advance for their own 30- or 60-second drone videos featuring their boats during the run.

“For the overall event video, we will be shooting from the helicopter as well as multiple drones,” Scioli said. “The video should be an amazing addition to the great still images by Pete Boden.”

Registered participants should contact Drone Buffalo or Scioli through Elite Poker Runs for more information—including pricing—on private drone video shoots during the event named in honor of the beloved local Fountain Powerboats sportboat owner who died earlier this year.

“For the run, we are asking that people wear purple for Ray since it was his color,” Scioli said. “Or they can break out their old-school Fountain gear.”
