We’re beginning to get some great aerial photography from the latest generation of high resolution drone cameras on the website now, many with stunning skies and cloud formations, images which simply cannot be captured by any other medium. It’s also a much more expansive view of our world and serves as a reminder of just how small our planet really is.
When you can see for 20 miles in every direction it’s sobering to see just how much the hand of man has formed our modern landscape and how the ugliness of urban development continues to creep outward into this ‘green and pleasant land’.
A sky is a sky, you might say, but it’s amazing how everything looks different from a few hundred feet up, particularly with the clouds taking on an extra 3-dimensional effect. From a practical point of view shots like this are a gift to designers and art directors looking for some open space to put the message or some genuine background context that goes some way to showing the big picture.
At A4StockPhotos we think aerial photography and video has enormous potential for the royalty free stock image market, particularly for new or unusual views of landmarks and human activity, like sport or industry and this is what we will be focussing on when commissioning new work for the coming year.
If you are a licensed UAV operator and taking shots like this we would love to hear from you. Just go to www.a4stockphotos.com and sign up to submit your images.
