AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY ALLOWS ME to take my cameras where nobody has ever been before, and capture scenes from vantage points that have never been seen by the human eye. This is what truly excites me. This is what pushes me to hike thousands of vertical feet, tens of miles of terrain, all with a quadcopter and a pack of batteries (think bricks) on my back — along with all the other gear that I’ll be needing.

It’s a serious commitment, but the reward is unrivaled. The following video is a compilation of footage from several areas around Colorado, including Rocky Mountain National Park, Boulder Flatirons, and Mount of the Holy Cross. Enjoy!
