A collection of imagery taken from the sky
Photos above the earth
In the summer of 2016 I got my first drone: a Solo by 3D Robotics. After a few unfateful first flights including several crashes – I began using it in production for action sports and videography. Where I missed the opportunity was with photos that I could take with this drone.
The drone picks up where the traditional photographer is limited – (usually around 6′ ) extending the perspective beyond the earthly realm. Drones afford the photographer limitless opportunities to see the world in new ways.
Through digital blending I have developed a unique technique of stitching together enormous panoramas (oftentimes from around 20 photos) to showcase landscapes and the human world in rich detail from above.
