Inspiration came during a close encounter with a humpback whale in a kayak near Maui; an experience that forever changed her life. Since then Stacy Garlington spends much of her time studying the art of photography and creating images using small aerial drones.
Stacy noted the tremendous potential of aerial photography during the early stages of the budding small drone industry. She began to create impactful images using basic camera skills. Her work is now published in both Forbes and TIME magazines -- examples of the new perspective achievable using this technology.
“I never had a formal education, so how did I end up with an office in both Silicon Valley and Shenzhen China? I had a dream and I made a choice to pursue what made me happy.”
Stacy now works full time as Product Experience Specialist at DJI, the world’s leading developer of consumer and commercial drones. She continues to teach thousands of people worldwide how to experience the freedom of flight while operating their cameras in the sky.
