How did you first get into photography and drones?

Having a father who worked in advertising, I have been around cameras my entire life. The passion for actually taking photos started at a very early age and since then I have always had one by my side. My very first drone was about 5 years ago and was a cheap toy purchased purely for flying that my mate talked me into buying from China. Not long after that and with a bit more research, I realized that you could get some pretty decent cameras built in to them and the passion took off from there.

Has photography helped you through a hard time?

I wouldn’t say photography has helped me through a specific hard time, but it certainly has helped keep my creative side satisfied.

What is one thing photography has taught you over the years?

Patience. Being a relatively impatient person, always having had my fingers in ten different pies at once, photography has really helped me slow down and enjoy my life and my passions.

What would you say to people who are thinking about or are too scared to show off their work?

Don’t hold back, just get it out there! Every great photographer started out as a novice, hating their own work, hesitant to show it to others. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by getting your work out there. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for some constructive criticism from the people you meet, it’s the best way to learn new techniques and improve your skill set.
