30+ DJI Spark Drone Photos That Will Inspire You To Travel

It’s no secret that I love my DJI Spark drone!  It gives you a whole different perspective of your surroundings.  As a camera, I find that the pictures come out so well that they require minimal editing…most of these photos have had no editing at all!  It’s small enough that I’ve still been able to carry on travelling with just cabin baggage, despite having all the extra gear.

Most of these photos (other than the Overseas Highway aerials) were taken without the DJI Spark controller, I just used my iPod Touch to control the drone.  The DJI Spark is advertised as a selfie drone so you don’t necessarily want to fly high for taking photos of yourself.  It’s even possible to fly it using hand gestures, which makes you feel a bit like Harry Potter, but I find that it doesn’t give you much control and the ‘take photo’ control is a bit hit and miss!

I have since bought a controller which gives more of a range and allows you to fly by feel, rather than constantly looking at the touch screen.  Part of me still prefers flying with just the iPod though!

Remember, if you plan on travelling with a drone make sure you always look up the rules and regulations for the area where you plan to fly.  I’ve written a whole guide on some of the things I’ve experienced when travelling with a drone.

One of my biggest tips is to not just rely on the flight maps.  I use the DJI Geo Zone Map which will show no fly zones around airports etc, but it doesn’t take into account rules that have been brought in by the different destinations.  For example, the DJI Geo Zone Maps show that there are unrestricted areas where you can fly in Santorini Greece, BUT as of 2017 the whole of Santorini has been named a no fly zone.  Some tourists ignore this and fly anyway which is against the law and gives drone fliers a bad name.

As you can see from my photos, I also try to fly in areas where there aren’t many people around and there are lots of big open spaces!  Not only do I prefer it this way, but I find that people will often stand there watching the drone, not realising that they are directly in my shot and then are technically looking right at the camera!  When you only have short battery lives, you don’t really have the time to wait for these people to get bored and move on!

There are so many different types of landscapes to capture but my favourites include water, especially the sea.  Which is ironic considering flying over water gives me anxiety!
