When you think of aerial videography, the first thing that normally comes to mind is a National Geographic or David Attenborough scene. Whether its crashing waves, majestic mountainsides, bustling cities or frozen terrains, aerial footage can take you away to another world. Visually compelling aerial videography can be difficult to master, but with the release of affordable drones and GoPros, aerial videography is becoming more and more mainstream and accessible to the everyday video maker. If you’re in need of a little drone inspo, we’ve compiled 19 of the best aerial videography accounts on instagram!

Here are the best aerial videography accounts on Instagram:

1.  @airpixels

Tobias Hägg is an Airborne Creativity & Photography Stockholm from Sweden. His aerial nature shots are incredible. But this video combines drone videography with underwater shots, thrilling music and cleaver editing to create a fast-paced video that will make you want to jump on the next plane to the Seychelles! You can check out the full video on his YouTube channel here.

 

2. @droneoftheday

Drone of the day features amazing aerial videography from many different locations. But this slow zoom out from the Palazzo Versace in Dubai has to be our favourite shot so far! #balling

 

3. @droneshooting

Droneshooting features lots of busy cityscapes from an aerial point of view. Who needs to visit Miami when you have the virtual tour right here?

4. @stianmklo

Ok, this icy instagram account doesn’t actually have aerial videography… but Stian Klo’s aerial phototography was too good not to include. He has some cool video shots using the DJI Phantom 4 Pro on his YouTube channel that are also worth checking out!

 

5. @saltywings

We love Salty Wings from Australia – our homeland! This account features an abundance of seaside aerial videography and photography that makes us wish it was summer all year round.

6. @xanderdepascale

This hipster from Seattle takes shots all over the USA. If you need any more reason to love his work, all profits from prints go to The ASPCA!

Happy Mother's Day! Remember to get your mom flowers. #tulips
