DJI Drone Photography Workshop World Tour Kicks Off with Elia Locardi This May

- 7 years ago

DJI is partnering with internationally acclaimed professional travel photographer and videographer Elia Locardi to kick off the DJI Drone Photography Workshop world tour in Lisbon, Portugal in May 2017

Using a combination of traditional in-camera techniques, targeted times of day, and advanced post-processing methods, Elia has developed a widely recognised and highly unique style of photography. His goal is to share his vision so others can see the world as he does, full of colour, texture, beauty and depth.

Elia will take participants to some of the most beautiful and picturesque destinations in the world to experience this new and exciting photographic artform, exclusively working with DJI drones.

In addition to learning how to master drone photography both in the field and for post production, the workshop will also include safe piloting techniques using DJI quadcopters. As the official sponsor, DJI will provide workshop participants with complimentary access and exclusive discounts to the latest drone and imaging technology.

Paul Moore, DJI’s Creative Director told PhotoBite: “We are very excited about this program because it will allow more people to experience the joy of flight while discovering some of the hidden gems around the world. Learning how to fly with DJI’s aerial platforms has become much easier and intuitive, thanks to the onboard intelligence and safety features. Once users have mastered their flying skills, the natural progression is to perfect their camera work. The workshop is a great opportunity for participants to build on the fundamental techniques and open their eyes to a whole new world of creative possibilities.”

Each workshop will last two and a half days, with the first one taking place in Lisbon, Portugal on May 19, followed by Menorca Island, Spain in June, Singapore in August, and U.S. and Switzerland in the following half of 2017. Each workshop will be limited to a maximum of 12 people, and registration will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. For more information or to sign up, Follow THIS LINK
