As part of DJI's tenth anniversary and as a celebration of the aerial image, we created Above the World: Earth Through a Drone’s Eye, a premium coffee table book, in partnership with renowned publisher teNeues. It showcases some of the world’s best photos, captured on DJI products everywhere from China to Germany to the United States to Dubai and features well-known aerial photographers like George Steinmetz and Cameron Davidson, landscape photographers turned drone flyers such as Elia Locardi, as well as phenomenal images captured by non-professional photographers from the SkyPixel community.
Unveiled on the first of September, the DJI Edition of Above the World was officially launched at an exclusive event in Soho House New York on October 14th. As well as getting a closer look at the book, the audience at this intimate event were able to share their time with prominent guests and enjoy special presentations.
National Geographic photographer and dedicated user of DJI drones Cameron Davidson spoke on his transition in aerial photography, from flying in a helicopter to flying his own camera drone.
Audrey Barr from publisher teNeues introduced Adam Lisberg, DJI's Communications Director for North America, who spoke on DJI’s 10th anniversary along with our newest, and most accessible aircraft ever, the Mavic Pro before offering a vision for the next ten years and beyond.
As the finale, the audience consisting of DJI enthusiasts, photographers and NYC media were given a chance to get a first-hand experience with the Mavic Pro, Inspire 1 Pro, and the Phantom 4.
