How did you first get into photography and drones?

I first got into photography and creating content during my high school years,
documenting our weekend adventures with mates. We were always inspired by
instagram influencers and discovered our passion from there. It was around this time
that I discovered drones and how it is such a unique perspective from the air. I started
with a cheaper drone and eventually got into using the DJI Phantom and haven’t
looked back.

Has photography helped you through a hard time?

Photography helped me come out of my shell and allowed me to be proud of what I
created. After getting the confidence to start posting my work, it allowed me to not
worry about what people think and just have fun with it.

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

Honestly photography taught me how to have fun and not take life too seriously,
staying present in that moment and enjoying it. Going through school studies and work can make it difficult to stay present. That’s why I find photography so special.

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

For me when I first started I was absolutely petrified of posting my work. I was so
caught up being worried about what people will think. Until one day I had a surge of confidence and posted. You will always be surprised how much more positive feedback you’ll get than negative. The best feeling in the world is when someone comes up to you saying they love your work and was inspired with it. My biggest regret is not posting earlier, because I realized I had nothing to be afraid of.

Who inspires you?

Throughout our high school years we were always inspired by adventure content
creators such as Jay Alvarrez and Alex Hayes. Watching these guys document their
happiest moments such as sky diving or cliff jumping is always super motivating. Some
of the best story tellers that also inspire us is Sam Potter and Sam Kolder. Their editing and story telling is out of this world and are able to produce such a
bold message to their audience.
