Pro Moviemaker Summer 2018


The newly formed Drone Major group announces a new set of standards for the British drone market at the House of Lords while the results of the first ever DJI Drone Photography Award are just in WORDS TERRYHOPE Drone PhotographyAward

Launched late last year, the DJI Drone Photography Award called for project ideas that would make creative use of a drone to explore new photographic possibilities. Winners Markel Redondo and TomHegen were each awarded a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone and £1500/$2091 project financing, amongst other prizes, to realise their projects, and these were exhibited at theprintspace gallery in London in April. Markel’s project focused on the estimated 3.4 million homes standing empty and deserted following the financial crisis that enveloped Spain in 2007. Having first photographed these abandoned developments in 2010, he returned with his drone to retrace his footsteps. Meanwhile TomHegen took a look at salt production across Europe, and he flew above some of Europe’s largest salt production sites to capture a powerful series of vivid colours and geometric shapes with the camera of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro camera pointing directly downwards. salt-series/
