I've been flying drones for the last five years. In this free course, I share my best tips on how to capture, edit and produce excellent aerial images. This course will walk you through Drone Photography Fundamentals by showing you behind the scenes footage of how I position the Drone in the air to get the perfect shot. Additionally, I use sample raw images captured from the drone and walk students through the tool I use to edit photos along with my though process.

Few years ago, I purchased a drone started flying around, but eventually after a few weeks, I wanted to do more with the drone. I shot some Real Estate videos for friends, which eventually lead to other paid opportunities. After a couple of years, my work has appeared on ESPN, HuffingtonPost, CBC News, CTV News and other national new broadcast stations. Also, I've covered properties with a total value of over $250 Million.

Outside of flying drones, I love product development with a passion in design and user experience.
