What a year 2016 has been for epic drone photography!
Last year there were over 12,000 photos tagged with #fromwhereidrone and I am happy to share that this year on Instagram there are now almost 90,000!
So below is a compilation of the top 50 most beautiful, dynamic, creative and engaging drone photos of 2016 from the #fromwhereidrone community.
I’ve compiled this list based on several engagement and community factors for photos that were posted to the @fromwhereidrone social channels, like how much a photo has been liked, commented on, and shared by others on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I did this using the stat information websites Iconosquare, Socialbakers and Gabstats.
Thanks to these amazing drone photographers and the thousands of others on Instagram that use the #fromwhereidrone hashtag everyday to share their drone work and inspire us all to new heights!
Quick note, I specifically linked to the drone pilot’s Instagram photo so that you can easily follow them or just quickly click over to their profile page to view more of their work. So please take advantage of that and show them some love! :)
I can’t wait to see what you all create in 2017! #fromwhereidrone

Did you just get a new drone?! If so congrats!
I would like to take a quick moment to be one of the first people to welcome you to the #fromwhereidrone family!
…now if you’re anything like I was when I first started in this hobby then you probably have a bunch of questions.
Chances are you’re probably wondering how do you fly a drone, what do all the drone terms mean, what are the drone rules, what apps should you get, do you have to register your drone, where can you go for help and what are some recommended resources.
Or maybe you’re wondering how the DJI Go app works or who some industry leaders are that you should follow or you may just want to view some amazing aerial inspiration.
Well if that sounds anything like you then you are in the right place!
I have designed this post with you in mind since I know I would have appreciated a resource just like this when I first got started.
So take a look below and if there is anything I missed or if you still have a question then feel free to leave a comment or reach out to me via my contact page.
Happy flying! Read More
This week’s #fromwhereidrone video of the week, ‘A Fleeting Dream’, comes to us from Arizona based filmmaker Jay Worsley.
In this unique aerial film Jay takes us over the cliffs and beaches of Brookings, Oregon.
I must say Jay’s editing, transitions, pacing and scoring all are refreshingly unique for an aerial film, so don’t miss this one!
Hear more about the story behind this aerial film and how Jay crashed a $5,000+ drone setup while making it after the jump…
