Watch on

Aerial footage of ~70,000 people watching The Burn at Burning Man 2014 at around 9:30pm on Saturday, August 30, 2014. Shot with DJI Phantom 2, GoPro 3+ Black, and DJI Lightbridge wireless HD transmission. Black Rock City, Nevada.

A lot of my flights were live-streamed to the Burning Man webcast, which was very cool. DJI’s Lightbridge wireless HD system did a great job in getting 720p footage from the Phantom 2 to the streaming container in Center Camp (behind Media Mecca), where it was real-time transcoded to 480p and streamed to Ustream using a Teradek box.

Special thanks to Gerard Mattimoe and George Krieger!


Awesome aerial photos of Iceland by Sarah Martinet

on Facebook, 500px

French photographer Sarah Martinet recently took an excursion from her usual wedding and portrait work to shoot this fantastic series of aerial landscapes of Iceland. Capturing the Nordic country’s beautiful, lush hills and valleys was no easy task. Sarah hung herself out the side of an open airplane to get these unobstructed shots of the Icelandic countryside. Every mountain peak, rushing waterfall, and flowing waterway is able to be seen all at once in each terrific shot thanks to the hard to get angles. She has much more of her work from Iceland, including many she shot on the ground which allowed to get some great intimate shots of an Iceland viking village
