With more than 30,000 users, Dronestagram is riding the growing wave of aerial photography. Via psfk:

Dronestagram really is the Instagram for drone photography and video. According to Eric Dupin, the founder of Dronestagram, “everybody who has a drone or can take stunning aerial pictures” is invited to post their work on the platform. Dronestagram has more than 30,000 registered users.

“We aim to build a community gathered around drone photography and video so as to show the beauty of the world with a new way of seeing it: from an aerial point of view,” said Dupin.

As for the future of drone photography, it seems like the sky’s the limit. Drones are disrupting aerial photography. Dupin calls it “a new photographic language.”
