A lot of us have a drone in the back of the cupboard. We got it for Christmas one year and after annoying the neighbours, taking a few shots of our houses and a bit of flying around the local footy oval we put it away for safekeeping – we don’t wanna crash that expensive bit of kit with anything too risky now do we?
But others have mastered their drones and are now producing some absolutely stunning images of our beautiful city. And that’s what we’re going to focus on today.
Below you’ll find some of our favourite local drone photographers and links to their Instagram accounts so, like us, you can get lost in a world of #topdown shots of Newy.
Droned Out Photography
Samuel from Droned Out Photography takes some pretty amazing shots of our beautiful city and its coastline. But perhaps the most stunning images from his Instagram account are taken from his DJI Mavic Air 4K Drone like the one above from Merewether Ocean Baths.
Droning About Aerial Photography
This night photo above Fort Scratchley is a great example of the some of the amazing photos Josh from Droning About Aerial Photography has taken of Newcastle flying his DJI Mavic Pro 2. The best thing is, Droning About Aerial Photography offers ready to hang canvases and prints of all sizes so you can purchase some images to have at your place.
Jemma from Bahari Tribe certainly knows her way around a lense. Her shots of the local surf are probably some of our favoruite images from her Instagram account and in addition to her photography, Jemma sells some funky cotton tees on her website.
Nithu Pushpakumar Photography
Shipping has never looked so good! Raised in Newcastle, Nithu Pushpakumar has been taking photos since he was 16 and his goal is to showcase our city in a creative, aesthetic and striking manner – And we think he’s ticket those boxes. You can buy prints of Nithu’s work by visiting his website.
First Site Imaging
You’re looking pretty sexy Newcastle! This “pidgeon’s perspective” shot from just above Customs House is a great example of what you can do when you’re a licensed drone pilot. Stephen Oulton takes some amazing images of the city whether it be fore real estate sales or business promotions.
