I'm an avid aerial photographer with over three years of experience. Most of my shoots are for journalistic stories, but I've also done a lot of travel and commercial pieces. I've shot in locations all over the world (Pakistan, Thailand, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, USA, etc.) and in a variety of challenging environments (sports events, speed boats, large political rallies (at night), dense cities, vast forests, fires, etc).
This video includes some of the best aerial footage from my travels in 2015. Let me know what you think!

Just a few years ago it was illegal to film government ministries in Myanmar’s bizarre secretive capital, Naypyidaw. Recently, those rules were loosened but aerial photography falls into a grey area. Before things change we took to the skies over Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (The Assembly of the Union) to see what the vast capital complex looks like from a bird’s eye view in this exclusive footage.
