A photographic portfolio by New Zealand based photographer Amos Chapple. From New Delhi to Barcelona, Chapple records a vantage point otherwise unknow to human sight, from an altitude that soars over cities, structures and landmark sights.

Chapple was interested in consumer drones as soon as they hit the market. He bought one, learned how to fly it, and then started to travel the globe. These photographs were taken before drone photography was illegal or otherwise restricted. “There was a window of about 18 months where it was possible to fly these things anywhere and people were excited to see it. I’m glad I made use of that time,” Chapple explained to Business Insider.
