The Flatiron Building in New York. Such an interesting and iconic structure. I shot this a couple of years ago and decided to do some cinematic processing to it.

How to Film a car chase using a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter #Drone. Using a drone to film a moving car isn't as easy as you may guess, but the results can be stunning. This is the kind of shot that used to cost a lot of money, now it can be accomplishes easily and cheaply using UAV drones, AKA quadcopters or sUAS

I'm not usually a big one for creating fan art, actually I never do it. But I came across a photo I snapped at #comic-con  last year and wanted to have some fun, so here you go.     #gameofthrones

I just have to post this one again since Im on the low flying #quadcopter kick. This is when I first got my DJI Global Phantom #drone   (close to 2 years ago) and was one of the first times I was out shooting. It was the very first time I flew out at the coast. I was hovering quite low getting ready to land. Then this massive, beautiful #Pelican was gliding in a direct path under my copter. I got home and discovered that I had captured it perfectly from a never-seen before angle (At least at this beach). Needless to say, after this I was hooked and have flown on an almost daily basis ever since.

I just posted a brand new video. How to Mask Impossible Images in Photoshop. This is what I do in the real world when a photo doesn't have a perfect white background and there are feathers, hair and stuff.

This was from a while back, probably can't fly here now, I imagine its geofenced. These giant hangers used to hold airships for the marines. They are some of the largest free-standing buildings in the world. This was shot with a DJI Phantom Quadcopter #Drone and a goPro camera.

Nice shot!  Yup, looks like MCAS Tustin.  I grew up about 5 miles from there back in the 70's and 80's when it and MCAS El Toro were hopping.  I used to watch the CH-46's and CH-53's come and go.
