With the help of photographer Lorenz Holder, our friends COOPH have put together 11 simple tips and tricks on how to shoot great drone photography.

Tips range from flipping the perspective so your subject strikes a pose laid down on the ground to much more familiar photography tricks such as looking for symmetry and patterns in your surroundings.

Here's a run down of all 11 topics covered: 

  1. Flip the perspective
  2. Look for symmetry 
  3. Find dividing lines 
  4. Capture unique patterns
  5. Shoot an aerial panorama
  6. Look for contrasting colours
  7. Transform the selfie
  8. Search out repetition
  9. Go abstract
  10. Work with shadows
  11. Photograph the horizon


With a little creativity and some clever ideas, it's easy to capture unique images with drones! If you fancy having a go yourself, please do share your images with us either in the comments below or over in our gallery
