You know, I actually forgot to mention that I have all my aerial photography in one place in a gallery. People are always asking where they can see it and I tell them to scroll through my FB timeline, how crude!   #quadcopter   #drone   #photography

This is a shot from a series with the talented acrtess/singer/model Llana Barron we did the shoot quite a while ago, using kinoflo constant lights. I was trying out some new processing techniques and like the direction its headed. I need to set up some new shoots and do the lighting more specific for the look I'm after.

My closest friends know that I like to fly my drone low, like really low. How else are you going to capture "oceans of fire" as the sun rises and just starts to skim the very top of the surf. #drone   #fire   #ocean

This is a fun image because it really makes people wonder what it is. Its the old ElToro air force base, which is now great park. We are looking directly down on a giant hot air balloon which is on the ground. Shot with the DJI Phantom #Quadcopter   #drone  with #GoPro

Golden hour is about to start at Laguna Beach California, this is sunrise shot with my DJI Phantom 2 #Quadcopter   #Drone  I love how to light hits as the sun first starts to appear. It makes for an early morning and real need for coffee, but the resulting images are worth it.

Les Paul. I saw this amazing shadow and realized that I should take advantage of it. So here is a Gibson Les Paul Studio basking in the shadow.
