Drone trip testimonials:
I’ve started saving for the next trip ☺️
I got a lot more than I anticipated. I was immediately met with challenges, flying in complex situations and over the ocean, shooting with a model next to a tall waterfall. However Johan was always there to reassure and guide me. Besides all the photo opportunities, Johan made sure that we were indeed on a holiday. We enjoyed the natural thermal baths and our chef served excellent Italo-Azorean food in our beautiful villa. I will remember this trip forever! 😍
Already thinking of joining another trip! 😇
Raise your drone level with Johan
What a trip! Everything was organized as promised beforehand. We visited the most beautiful spots at sunrise and sunset to get the best out of our drones. Do you want to raise your drone level? Go with Johan!
Fabulous ! 😍
Just back from the drone trip … and still buzzing! I was pretty much a beginner dronie, but from day 1 I started learning. Johan is a wonderful coach, very supportive and encouraging. Not only has he built up my confidence in flying, he has expanded my knowledge in photography and post-processing. On top of that, you really don’t have to think about anything! It felt like a 5 star service from start to end. Thank you ? Our group was also soooo much fun, lifelong friends were made and we’re already talking about booking another trip !!
You will be extremely satisfied
Without hesitation or mental reservation, I suggest you add Johan’s Drone Adventures to your bucket list, or the starting of the same. After completing my third adventure, I can offer some in-depth insight. Your droning competencies will not hinder what you will gain after an adventurous 6 days. I can assure you Johan will meet you at your skill level and deliver you to new heights. Why 3 adventures so far, because Johan is committed. I am confident, you will be extremely satisfied to what Johan can deliver, in his means.
Just do it, you won’t regret it 😎
It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced drone pilot or you just have a few flights, with or without photo or film experience, Johan will assist you on your own level. Get ready for the best locations, the best food and a great time!
Definitely worth every penny
I have been flying various drones for three years and also been on other photography workshops. In comparison Johan’s daily planned adventures & personal coaching tips in photography composition & flying a drone was a great lifetime experience well worth it. Our villa was immaculate clean & comfortable, along beautiful outdoor scenery. The private chef was also wonderful and cooked some delicious meals that were well planned out. Excellent experience ☺️
🤩 Indescribable journey 🤩
Thrilling, mind-blowing, awe-inspiring, hair-raising, life-changing, exhilarating, astonishing, impressive, phenomenal, mind-bending, surreal, once-in-a-lifetime, unforgettable, otherworldly, heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping drone experience. Thank you Johan and the rest of the group ☺️🙏 ¡Hasta la próxima!
Level up your drone skills
The perfect way to level up your drone photography and video skills! In a small group of drone-minded people, you get to see the most beautiful places on the island! We also spent several hours at sea to capture amazing footage of dolphins and whales. Everything was organized in the best possible way. Just chill, relax and enjoy the ‘Drone Adventures’!
Johan makes the difference!
During my Azores adventure, I discovered I had no clue on what I was doing. Sure I took plenty of drone shots, but it was the coaching from Johan that now makes my audience linger and want more. Through my improved photos they are able to travel with me! 😉
Boy, was I more than pleasantly surprised!
I am an experienced photographer with decades of experience. I signed up, because of the exotic locations and perhaps learn a thing or two. Johan skillfully interacted with each of us at the knowledge level we each had. He encouraged us to look at things differently and shared his experience and experiences joyfully. We all became better photographers, more than we expected, as well as adventurers. And the group forged a long-lasting bond.
Everything you could expect and more
1st drone trip with Johan (but def. not the last) and it’s been a blast! Johan knows all the best spots and had backup locations in case of bad weather. The group I was part of was great and I have made some lifelong friends. Learned a lot from Johan and the group. The Azores offers a lot of opportunities for drone photography and with Johan’s guidance, you are bound to get great shots. The editing sessions were very informative, as well as the constructive feedback. Looking forward to the next one! ?
I knew I wanted more 😎
I signed up again with Johan for a 2nd trip and I was not disappointed. Johan continued to assess the skills I required and coached me through them. A new group of pilots, however the sharing experience was equally immeasurable. Droning certainly is an international team builder. The trip is not a vacation though and can be very exhausting. However it’s well guided and flexible enough. I highly recommend the trip to take your piloting to the next level. Learn to trust yourself and your drone. Are you up for it? 😎
Once in a lifetime experience
For me it was a once in a lifetime experience. A trip full of activities and lot of tips & tricks to make my drone shots go from ‘OK shots’ to ‘WOW shots’ 😍
Great trip for drone beginners
As a newbie to drone photography I was a bit apprehensive. However, the trip was very relaxed. Johan was always there to help and give advice. The locations on this trip are amazing: wonderful opportunities for drone photography. And the accommodation and food are highly recommended as well !!
A real and frenetic adventure!
Mauritius has been my second trip with Johan. The island offers you all kinds of magical experiences: paradisaical beaches, mountains to climb, whales, dolphins and all this surrounded by a group of people with the same hobby & goal: traveling, having fun and flying our drones to capture those beautiful moments and remember them forever. Are you joining for the next drone trip? 💪
When can I go again?
Dronetrippin’ with Johan was amazing. He showed all the best drone spots and had many tips and tricks to share! Only one question remains … when can I go again!
Transformative adventures in Mauritius
Joining Johan’s drone adventure in Mauritius turned out to be an adventure of a lifetime. Each day was a whirlwind of excitement and learning, from conquering majestic mountains to chasing breathtaking waterfalls and so much more. The thrill of capturing stunning aerial footage of whales during our whale expedition was unparalleled, and filming from a catamaran cruise redefined my perception of seeing the world through the lens of a drone. If you want to elevate your drone game, then Johan’s trip is a transformative experience you will enjoy 💪
You won’t regret it!
If you are looking to fly intensively everywhere and all day long you are in the right place! Enjoyed so much discovering Azores through Johan’s eyes and sharing these days with passionate droners.
Definitely an experience that you won’t regret!
Very high expectations surpassed !!
The Azores drone trip was so good on so many levels, I immediately booked to go on the Mauritius trip. The high bar had been set, but somehow Mauritius was even better … stunning scenery, mountain hikes, catamaran cruises, seeing the group droning whales from the villa and so much more !! Johan is a very patient coach and spends 1-1 time with everyone helping and guiding. I am still very much a beginner, so this is appreciated.
It was such a pleasure with the group, lifelong friends are made! Already looking forward to our next drone reunion ☺️ Thank you Johan!
It’s worth it!
What? Testing the wind resistance of your drones and fly in various locations in Sao Miguel! This is what Johan offers, in an intense and friendly way from golden hour to sunset, either on a beach or at the top of a mountain. You will practice various situations of droning, and have good time and memories with friends. Pro or beginner, should you want to improve your skills then go with him! 💪
See you in next trip Johan
A trip I will never forget!
Going to Mauritius on a drone adventure trip with Johan was an amazing experience. Johan made sure we were introduced to a variety of locations and different challenges. This trip has made me open my eyes to photography in a new way. Having post processing sessions between shoots, really helped me understand the process and meta that I had been lacking. I would definitely go on another trip in the future!
Want to go PRO?
Johan will show you how! Johan was our amazing guide, teacher and cheerleader, training us with his wisdom and insights across an amazing, intense 6 day adventure across São Miguel. We – of course – came away with epic photos, but also better skills, great memories and new friends. Join the club!
Stop what you’re doing and go with Johan!
Next to composition and the right timing, I’ve learned that it’s all about pushing your own limits and trusting your gear. The knowledge, adventures & people you get to meet are really worth the trip.

Massive progress made in just one week!
From showing us the best timing and lighting in the field, to workshopping photos and videos on-screen, Johan does it all !!! There is no limit to the people who can and should join Johan – he will personally coach you to your level of skills and comfort, and then expand on them. I found amazing like-minded people and pushed my limits enormously. The only hesitation in recommending the trip, would be that others could take up my spot, if I don’t sign up quickly enough! ☺️
Quick skills improvement and more confidence
An amazing lifetime experience, where I enjoyed the process of learning sooo much. By day 2, I already felt a lot more confident. I like the whole concept of the trip; land & ocean adventures, enough time to practice, workshops at the villa and connecting with other enthusiastic droners. Johan is a great coach and motivated me to go beyond my comfort zone. I can’t wait to join again for more golden memories! 😍
Makes you want to wake up at 5.30am
The drone trip with Johan makes you want to wake up at 5.30am each day to not miss the perfect lighting for your shot. Amazing landscapes, a lot of useful tips and practice, great teamwork – all while creating lifetime memories. A perfect example that sometimes you can mix work with pleasure 😍
A magical trip
The Azores adventure in May 2021 was a magical trip. I had more fun pushing my limits that week than in a year of droning over flatland.
Unforgettable and irreplaceable
Starting as a complete beginner, Johan has been so patient with me, I cannot believe the progress I’ve made during this trip! Whenever you have a question, he doesn’t just roll out the answer, he makes you actually find and understand the solution, so that you can confidently apply them, even when he’s not around. Our team was so amazing, we just instantly bonded, and my face has been hurting from laughter all week! I’m already missing these random people so much. Go book your trip now, or I will take your spot! 😇
Amazing workshop in a fabulous destination
I benefited immensely from the drone workshop. I am always *so nervous* when I fly my drone in less-than-perfect conditions and Johan coached me through that. Now, I’m a confident flyer thanks to Johan’s personalized coaching. We worked on my individual needs of composition, editing and using more of the drone’s capabilities. I’m already missing my fellow droners and the gorgeous island of São Miguel. I learned so much that I hope to join another one soon! 😍
Expectations exceeded 😍
Through 6 days of intense droning I gained a lot of confidence in handling tricky situations, because Johan is always around to help. We worked with models, launched the drone from a boat, always chasing the ‘money shots’ and editing them in Lightroom. I met like-minded people from different countries and had a lot of fun. Johan is always in the best mood, being our tutor, guide, host and driver. I’m definitely joining again!
