10 Days 5 Hours Ago

Last month I got to shoot in Iceland with the @moment team and today I can finally share why! They just launched their newest product on Kickstarter, the world's first anamorphic lens for a drone! . Posted here is a short teaser of what we shot but if you want to check out the longer video and learn more about this new lens and their new ND filters click the link in my bio! #momentair x #fromwhereidrone

I’m currently on my way to Iceland for a quick trip and I’m reflecting on the last time I went which was 3 years ago in the winter. This time it should be a little warmer and a lot more green. Excited to see the difference! 🇮🇸

This is a 3D render of the home we are building over at @ourmoderndwelling. I know it’s been awhile since I shared any updates to this feed but I’ll just say so far it’s been a super crazy and stressful process. We unexpectedly hit a ton of rock and as a result have had some big setbacks. . Thankfully, we are finally nearing the point of the guys pouring concrete for the foundation soon which is one of the main milestones we have been excited to see completed. . So here is a rendering of the home we designed with our architect. We have already made some changes/tweaks with the color, stone and windows but this is the main idea. If you want to see the rest of the 3D renders feel free to check out our latest post on @ourmoderndwelling!

From Where I Drone • So stoked to finally share this short film I created in collaboration with @polarpro. It's a film about why I started From Where I Drone, why I love aerial photography and creating just in general. To me creating is about connection. • Check out the link in my bio or IG story to watch the whole thing. • Huge thanks to my bud @philipleclerc for the amazing cinematography and edit. • http://bit.ly/dirkafilm • #fromwhereidrone

🎉🎊 Hey y'all I'm excited to share that the hashtag I started waaaaay back in 2015 (#fromwhereidrone) just crossed the 1,000,000 mark on Instagram. These are some of the first images I tagged it on. It's a bit wild thinking back because it all started off as a little joke ;) Let me explain… • On one of my first flights I took my DJI Phantom drone up and tilted the camera so it pointed straight down. I was quickly taken back that I could even do that with a camera several hundred feet in the air and then I was overcome by what I saw because the world below looked so small and compressed. • A bit later when I wanted to share some of my first drone images on Instagram I remember thinking about the super popular hashtag #fromwhereistand. You know that hashtag people use when pointing their camera down to show off their cool shoes or show an interesting floor? • Well I thought it would be funny to play off of it since I was pointing my camera down as well… just from a really high angle! • So, every time I posted a drone image I used the hashtag #fromwhereidrone. I would get some laughs here and there (proof that some people got the joke) but then several months later I decided to actually click on the tag and I was blown away to discover that there were over 500 drone photos tagged with it as well! This was really cool because at the time it was hard to find anyone with a drone, let alone be inspired by amazing drone content from all around the world. • That is when I decided to create @fromwhereidrone and then later http://fromwhereidrone.com. I started both of those endeavors to inspire and teach people about the world of drones. What's been so cool is to see that a simple hashtag has allowed me and others to connect with other like-minded drone pilots from around the globe! • So here's to the next 1,000,000 tags! In honor of this big milestone I'll be giving away a drone this week! Stay tuned for an announcement on that tomorrow morning over on @fromwhereidrone!

All the land near our property is so green thanks to all the rain SoCal has gotten over the last month! Wish these green views could last all year long! @ourmoderndwelling

The fam and I were hoping to catch the "super blood wolf moon" 💉🐺🌝 from our property tonight since there isn't very much light pollution up there but unfortunately it was too cloudly and the moon was hidden ;( The consolation prize though was being able to see the lake light up like we have never seen before with all the beautiful sunset colors. @ourmoderndwelling

A friend of mine is a police officer in San Diego and he asked if I wanted to do a ride along. So yesterday I had the opportunity to follow along with him and those who protect and serve the city. I documented the day in my IG stories if you would like to check it out. 🚔
