Photography by Amos Chapple ©
When drone technology was first introduced, there was a golden era where a photographer could fly his camera just about anywhere he pleased.
Yet the popularity of drones led to a public debate over privacy concerns and commercial rights that much to a photo enthusiast’s dismay, formed restrictive laws and preventative regulations.
Luckily, Amos Chapple realized it was only a matter of time before drones would become restricted and raced against time touring the world for 2 years with a quad-copter in his backpack capturing these magnificent photos.
Amos travelled to 16 different countries including Russia, Italy, Georgia, Spain, India, France, New Zealand, Hungary and The Netherlands. Most of his photos are the only ones of their kind—and if you attempted to capture them today it would probably land you a heavy fine or even jail time.
