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.  If you wanted to check out some inspiring Australian aerial photography, you’ve come to the right place.

So, without further ado, here’s my collection of drone photos covering 15,000 miles of Australia; from Melbourne to Perth.

I hope you enjoyed looking at Australia from above.  There’s something magical about this country which can only really be appreciated from the air.  I could probably spend years and years capturing Australia from the skies and each picture would be unique.  The landscape is so diverse and I hope I’ve been able to capture this.

Let me know your thoughts on drone photography in the comments below.  I’ve put together some tips on drone photography generally here.
