Drone photos Amos Chapple

You thought drones are only used for military purposes and Amazon deliveries? Think again. New Zealand-based Amos Chapple discovered an extraordinary use for the drone when he started to capture stunning bird-eye views of some of the world’s most beautiful monuments and natural wonders, producing outstanding drone photos.

Travelling from New Delhi to Barcelona, Chapple has recorded vantage points and high aerial angles otherwise unknown to the human line of vision. For a photographic portfolio aptly entitled ‘Air’, Amos managed to capture many of the drone photos in these series before drone photography was prohibited. This gave him a chance to fly his photography drones over the Taj Mahal and other historical monuments without any restrictions. Amos explains, “there was a window of about 18 months where it was possible to fly these things anywhere and people were excited to see it, I’m glad I made use of that time.”

Unfortunately with new rules and law enforcement prohibiting drone photography, these series of 37 aerial images might be the last and only ones of their kind to exist. Time to sit back and enjoy some of these breathtaking views in our gallery, courtesy of Amos Chapple.
