BIRDI Drone Photo Contest - Week 7 Winner

January 30, 2019

This week's winning shot is of the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge, in the northern Illawarra region of NSW. Congratulations to Aaron Weatherston for his winning shot 'Flying Down the Highway at Sea Cliff Bridge' taken in Clifton NSW.

Aaron Weatherston is a graphic designer with his own company. Working in the design industry Aaron has always taken photos but drone photography gives him a different perspective and a new medium to add to his skillset. Aaron shoots on a DJI Mavic Pro 2 as the new camera is very impressive.

Aaron captured the winning shot an hour out of Sydney at the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge in NSW. After hearing the big car ads are shot there Aaron decided that he wanted to get a new take on the location from a new height and vantage point. The winning shot was captured on his DJI Mavic Pro 2 just after sunrise with no wind or traffic in sight. No filters or touchups needed!

You can follow Aaron on his Facebook Page and see more of his work on his website. We look forward to continuing to highlighting our pilots and their talent on the BIRDI platform!
