Photographer Amos Chapple was in love with drones from the moment they hit the market. He purchase a drone before there were many regulations on, and travelled the world solo capturing some of the most beautiful images of the most famous sights in the world from a bird-eye view. In the process he created some of the most stunning aerial photography I have ever seen. Most of these images would be illegal to capture nowadays due to strict drone flying regulations. “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,” explains the aerial photographer. To see more images and find out more about his amazing work, click here.
