The world is full of amazing photographers, videographers and drone pilots, this can be seen throughout Instagram and various other social media platforms. Today we got the pleasure of asking Mr. Steele a few questions about him and how he came to do what he does today.

How did you first get into photography and drones?

 

I got a toy helicopter for Christmas 2013 and that sparked my interested, where I fell into the deep abyss of YouTube and RC. I do both since I am basically a lifestyle character on YouTube/Instagram. I just photograph and film what I enjoy doing whatever that may be. Drones are my staple when it comes to videography.

Has photography helped you through a hard time?

Ehh. Not really. Drone flying helped is what I turned to after a rough break up. But I generally do things that are more active when I’m having a hard time. Usually rock climbing or working out.
