Photos: Unique drone shots of rarely seen places and structures
Two brothers from Wolverhampton, England are offering us a whole new world of imagery thanks to their extraordinary drone photography.
Adventure photographers Mike and JP Andrews of Abstract Aerial Art have cornered the art market with their unique collection of captured images.
The dynamic duo officially launched their company in August of 2017 at an exclusive reception, having recently returned from their travels around the world. What began as an idea to briefly escape the 9-5 rat race, soon turned into the reality of an epic adventure and the eventual birth of Abstract Aerial Art.
With a whole lot of wanderlust searing through their veins, the brothers traveled the globe to Australia, documenting the scenery of the vast country on their blogsite.
A month into their adventure (and after many setbacks including: drone flying restrictions, getting stuck in the mud 100 miles away from civilization, finding themselves chasing storms and surrounded by wildfire), the pair had a chance to sit back and look at the images that they had been capturing along the way.
It wasn't the regular landscape images that were capturing their attention, but, in fact, it was the images they had been taking directly above the landscapes that stood out. It was at this point that Abstract Aerial Art was born.
"Arriving in Sydney and finding ourselves a second-hand vehicle, we set off into the Australian outback with no survival skills at all, to film and photograph remote Australia," explains Mike Andrews. "The adventures we went on were incredible, and we'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.
"However, not long into our trip, we came to realize we had a vast number of extremely unusual images which we had no idea what to do with, yet wanted to share with the world; when you look at scenery in a generic landscape format, whilst still incredible, it's what everyone is used to seeing.
"When we realized how bizarre things look from directly above, we knew we had stumbled upon something special. The images we captured are magical, and the world deserves to see them".
With a full diary of locations across the globe to visit, there's much more to come from Abstract Aerial Art, and the Andrews brothers are looking forward to what 2018 has to offer, and where on earth their new life as adventure photographers will take them.
