I gained the gift of flight at a time when I had lost the gift of walking. When I purchased my first drone, I had been bed-ridden for months, recovering from a bad foot injury. Hopping to my parent’s back porch on my good leg, I launched my Mavic Air and explored my neighborhood with more freedom than my legs had ever afforded me. I was hooked.
Drones give a photographer the gift of perfect compositional freedom, and a traveler the gift of massively expanded accessibility. My favorite part of drone photography, however, is the ease with which I am able to create unique images, even in the most overshot of locations. And in those locations that are undershot, I am often simply the only person in history to have ever taken a picture from the perspective of a drone.
