After a year of no vacation, I finally went away for two weeks to Rhodes, Greece. I recently purchased a DJI Mavic Air for my filmmaking. This drone is a great addition to my kit. I’m looking forward to exploring and creating new content with this device.

The DJI Mavic Air can also follow my subjects on the ground and from above. My imagination is flying right now. I have so many ideas brewing and excited to unleash some new creations beyond this one.

Rhodes Greece was a great location to practice flying too. There were many rural areas throughout the island. I wish the castle didn’t have so many airplanes flying so closely above it, because that would have been amazing to capture. Instead, I used my iPhone. Other footage throughout I used my Nikon D850.

To be honest I’m eyeballing Sony gear to add to the family. Reason for this is because Sony offers over 600 more focal points then my D850. However, I love my Nikon for stills and when I have a real controlled situation the video is pretty remarkable.

If you read this article this far… contact me if you would like to collaborate. I also set up a meetup group for other drone operators out there. DM for info.
