Australia From Above

Now that my time in Australia is over, I’ve been looking through the thousands of photos I’ve taken.  I just had to invest in a drone whilst in Australia and believe that it offers such a different perspective for landscape photographers.  Whilst the quality of photos from the DJI Mavic Pro will not win any awards (you’re essentially getting smartphone camera photos from up high), I just love being able to capture things that normally you’d never see.

So, without further ado, here’s my collection of drone photos covering all the way from Melbourne to Perth.


Well there you have it! I’ve found drone RAW files are some of the hardest I’ve ever edited.  Let me know what your thoughts are on drone photography in the comments below.

  1. Wonderful set! I sold my drone, it was fun but there are too many restrictions.

    1. Thank you! Yeah I completely agree but in Australia it worked out okay – just look at the app it’ll say yes or no then just fly!

  2. Wow! Great photos and so clear and precise. Thank you for sharing them!

    1. Thank you very much! Glad you like them 🙂

  3. These shots are beautiful! Thank you for sharing them 😁

    1. Thank you! That means a lot as I’ve found aerial photography really difficult!

  4. Oh my goodness, these photos are absolutely stunning! I’ve never been to Australia and I definitely want to check it out now!

    Sending you good vibes!

  5. Bloody hell! The drone just paid for itself. Lovely shots!

    1. Thank you so much! Haha it was definitely one of the best purchases I’ve made 🙂

  6. These are brilliant photos…and really showing my country to all with its beauty.

    1. Thank you so much! I absolutely loved Australia, it’s so beautiful! One day ill get back to do the North West!

      1. Im just reading about your time in Perth. Yes it used to be easy to get jobs if you were from overseas. However as the mining industry has had a downturn, most have moved back to Perth to work. Perth is my home town although I have lived here on the east coast for the last 10 years. Ah the great north west of WA its beautiful. My bestie is right at the moment doing a drive from Perth to – she is just out of Darwin. and loving it except for the humidity. looking forward to reading more of your blog

        1. Yeah we really struggled in Melbourne too!! Even with both of us being qualified lawyers! We ended up doing bits of farm work and delivering yellow pages! Ah wow sounds incredible! Thank you

  7. Oh wow, everything looks great! We’ve actually been thinking about investing in one, but we don’t travel often and I don’t wanna waste money by rarely using it.

    1. Thank you! Yeah I thought that and I definitely didn’t use it as much as I could have! The DJI sparks are quite cheap if your wanting to make a start!
