This is my original drone photo trip! After 3 very successful editions, it is now time for the fourth edition in May 2024.

With a small group of enthusiastic drone photographers we will create the adventure of a lifetime. This is the kind of trip you will be telling your grandchildren about! 😍

Over the course of 7 days I will show you the best drone spots, help you to improve your drone photography through live workshops in the field and composition/editing workshops in our private villa. We’ll share best practices and tips in a small group of like-minded participants. And in general we’ll just have a lot of fun in the most incredible location in Europe.

Only 6 spots available per week! 🥳

Our luxury villa on São Miguel:

As usual on my drone trips, we’ll be staying in a beautiful luxury villa with pool and ocean view. This private villa will be our home for the 7 days, so you can relax in all comfort in between the shoots, we can easily get together for the composition & Lightroom workshops and of course enjoy our chef’s delicious home-cooked meals every evening.

You’ll have the choice between a single room or a shared room (2 pax). Each room comes with a private balcony with amazing ocean view.

Typical day:

In order to catch our locations in golden hour light, we’ll get up early every day. Usually during the day I have activities planned or one of the composition/Lightroom workshops. Here’s a typical day on the Azores drone trip:

  • Rise and shine + prepare your breakfast
  • 5:30: departure sunrise location
  • Breakfast on the spot
  • 10:00 back at the villa / activity
  • Back-up & charge batteries / relax
  • 13:00: lunch at the villa (self-service)
  • Pool time or composition/Lightroom workshop
  • 15:00 departure sunset spot
  • 20:00: driving back in the dark
  • Back-up & charge batteries / refresh / shower
  • 21:00 dinner at the villa (private chef)
  • Sleep

These timings are indications. We will be flexible to circumstances / opportunities. All locations / activities are optional, if you wish to skip one and sleep in, it’s your holiday ☺️
