Stories from the Sky: A Curated Collection of Aerial Imagery


Aerial photography and videography allow you to tell stories from a new perspective. From a bird’s-eye view, a flock of flamingos on a lake in Kenya could be golf balls on a course in Georgia. Subjects morph into patterns and become tiny specks in the grandness of nature. Similarly, aerial views offer a truly unique perspective of our cities. Manmade wonders like the Statue of Liberty and Christ the Redeemer can be playfully navigated showcasing these familiar landmarks in a completely new way. From the Holi Festival of Colors in India to a nature preserve in Botswana, Africa, here are some awe-inspiring aerial shots from around the world.
