Photography has come a long way since the dawn of the first camera.
For one, producing and saving photos are now a lot easier—from the arduous film and chemical process first introduced in 1839, photographers can now use electronic chips to replicate and store digital photos on their computer in seconds.
And unlike before, there are countless ways to take stunning, high-quality aerial shots. Camera drones—semi-portable flying machines with a built-in camera—for instance, make it possible to take photos and videos from the sky.
Drones allow photographers to shoot from unconventional angles and perspectives. And this means that photographers, for example, no longer need to get up close and personal to achieve the perfect shot. Embracing the potential of drone photography and videography can help you see your subject from a new perspective. On top of that, you’ll get to fly a drone, which feels like playing a real-life video game.

Last month I got to shoot aerial footage in Iceland with the MOMENT team and now I can finally share why!
MOMENT just launched their newest product on Kickstarter, the world’s first anamorphic lens for a drone!
Here is a video that we made for the launch of the new anamorphic lens and the other products they announced which are ND filters, a foldup landing pad and an iPhone case that actually fits inside the Mavic Pro controller.
DJI is currently running their summer sale with up to 23% off select products! The sale runs from June 7 – June 16.
Check out the details of the sale below:
DJI also gave me a couple of codes for an extra 5% of the sale price so if you would like one shoot me an email or leave a comment down below and I will send you one!

I’m co-hosting a FREE drone webinar geared specifically to the #fromwhereidrone community titled:
This webinar will answer all your questions on the topic of Part 107 certification which is required in the United States if you would like to make money with your drone.
I’ll also briefly share some recommendations and info on making money with your drone.
Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 10:00 AM Pacific Time (convert to your timezone)
Topics we’ll cover:
- Everything you need to become an FAA-certified commercial drone pilot
- The best study resources to prepare for the Aeronautical Knowledge Test
- Case studies of beginner pilots making money in the drone industry
- The top industries to find a job and make money flying a drone
- How much people are making with their drone
- Guidance on how to navigate federal and state drone laws
- Dirk Dallas (me!), Founder of From Where I Drone
- Alan Perlman, Founder of UAVCoach
Breaking into this fast-paced industry can feel intimidating, particularly if you don’t have a background in aviation, but it’s easier to get started than you might think.
Can’t attend live? You should still register! I’ll be sending out a recording after the webinar to all registrants.
I hope to see you there!
