We are two brothers and best mates from the UK, JP and Mike. With our passion for travel, adventure and photography and not being the 9-5 types, we specialise in finding bizarre abstract aerial images of Planet Earth. Captured using our unique style of drone photography, we aim to show you a world from a perspective not many have the opportunity to witness.
The story began back in October 2016 with a discussion in a pub about investing in a drone. Two weeks later and with no planning whatsoever, we brought a one way ticket to Australia, set up the website www.planetearthimages.com and armed with our new drone, flew off into the unknown to find beautiful and unique photographs of our planet.
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. Not long into our trip, we came to realise 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. As a result, Abstract Aerial Art was born.
Since returning back home to the UK, we are continuing to search for the aerial images we have fallen in love with and intend to travel far and wide to find them!
To keep up to date with where we are and what we’re up to, please follow our blog and see where our adventures take us!
All our aerial photographs are of real places on our planet. Other than slight colour and contrast enhancements, none of the photos are manipulated in any way.
The point is not to work out what it is but to appreciate how weird and wonderful the world can look from above.
