‘Africa by Drone’

SANDRINE HECQ

Tell us more about yourself. 

Im a proud drone enthusiast who travels the world to capture pictures, vlogs and travel videos. I run an online business which supports my passions to capture the world from a different perspective. I have been flying drones for two years now and always push myself to learn the perfect art of capturing life on earth.

 

What is the background and inspiration behind the footage?

I grew up in South Africa and planned a 3 day trip capture it’s hidden beauty. I was so lucky to find all the animals in the area and topped it off with filming flamingos which has been a dream of mine. I was so inspired by the nature around me.

 

What drone did you use to capture the shot?

I used a DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

 

What led you to become a drone pilot?

My career in Photography and Videography started off as a little side passion with a go pro 4! I then saw a video on YT and wondered how influencers were taking such magical shots… I then discovered drones existed.I started making intros to my marking videos and then it totally took over my life after realising I love sharing my experiences with the world.
