If you're from the area it is simply known as "The Beach." Those who refer to it as "The Shore" are committing a cardinal sin, confusing it with the "Dirty Jerz" (New Jersey). They should be outcast - forced to spend their days off in the crowded sands of Wildwood and Long Beach Island, forevermore. I kid... (kind of). 

Since I was old enough to walk (and swim) I've been a visitor of Delaware's beaches. Now, just shy of four decades later I find myself living about a half-hour away. I may be heavily biased, but I can honestly claim there's something truly different about them. Call it a certain feeling, a different attitude... I've been to the Outer Banks and I've been to beaches in Ireland. I've been to beaches in the Caribbean, Bermuda & Italy. They don't have the same smells, the same sights or even the same water or sand. So over the last several years I've tried to capture some of the things that remind me of that feeling. That Delaware beach feeling.

I've always wanted to be a pilot. As a kid I can remember sitting behind a small adjustable-speed fan in the hallway, pretending to taxi down the runway and take off. My dream job was to become a helicopter search & rescue pilot out west. So after high school I applied and was accepted at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University but couldn't come up with the capital required for flight school. Since then, setting aside the time and money to obtain my pilots license hasn't materialized (yet), but I may have found something almost as fulfilling. 

On February 17th 2013 I picked up my very first drone, a DJI Phantom (v1). It only flew for about seven minutes and took shitty, unstabilized images using a GoPro Hero 2 strapped underneath, but I was hooked. Frustrated by the mediocre results I managed to hack together a mount for my Sony RX100. The added weight drastically shortened flight times to a little less than four minutes - but man were those images so much better. 

Within a year the Phantom II came out with much better battery life and an integrated gimbal for steadier video. I bought two - one for video and one for stills with the RX100. Then I built a better mount with a video downlink. I also started building my own small FPV drones for racing and most recently added a DJI Inspire 1 Pro to my burgeoning squadron of lithium-fueled death machines.

It is absolutely insane to consider the advances this technology has achieved in such a short amount of time. What was cutting edge and super-expensive just a year or two ago is now cheaper than dirt, and getting cheaper and more advanced by the day.

Drones have allowed me to capture new views of old haunts from a unique perspective, and (as far as I can tell) will be something I'll be involved with for the rest of my natural life - so long as they don't get banned. So much fun. So much potential.
