Norfolk County’s Tourism and Economic Development office has loaded more than three hours of video clips to its online library of images to help promote tourism spending and investment in the area.

Dozens of clips highlight Norfolk County’s tourism, agriculture, heritage and culture, from the beach at Port Dover to the heritage homes of Waterford. Aerial footage generated by a camera mounted on a small helicopter also gives viewers a bird’s-eye view of the Lake Erie coast, Deer Creek conservation area, the Port Dover lighthouse, and much more.

“The video footage is an excellent way for our residents to better appreciate our own back yard, and it raises awareness among developers and investors around the world of the beauty of Norfolk County,” said Clark Hoskin, Manager of Tourism and Economic Development.

The video clips were prepared by Rainey Media, a Norfolk County production company. Owner Dean Rainey is based in Waterford and travels the world to shoot video for other clients.

Norfolk County owns the copyright to the video footage, which allows anyone to use the video clips to help promote the community. Potential users are asked to contact the Tourism and Economic Development office for permission. Resale of the video clips is not allowed.

Two short video sequences have been uploaded to the Norfolk County video library. They showcase how the images can be assembled to tell the story of Norfolk County.

“We hope to put together more videos in the future and to add to the library,” Hoskin added.
