 "I don’t always like to capture things like maps"

Azim Khan Ronnie - Aerial Photographer


What does Aerial Photography mean to you?

Answer: Aerial photography shows us a different perspective and different view from above. Views which we cannot see from the ground. So, aerial photography means to me: taken from above. But it’s not meant to always be taken from the very top. I don’t always like to capture things like maps. 

Which photographers inspire you and why?

Answer: Aerial photographer Florian Ledoux and some Vietnamese aerial photographers inspired me. I always love to capture things I find eye-soothing and which give pleasure to my soul. And I saw these types of photos from them.

 "use a drone like a tall tripod"

Azim Khan Ronnie - Aerial Photographer


What is the most important thing to remember in aerial photography?

Answer: It’s very easy to click in aerial photography, but try to find a unique and interesting frame and composition from above. Photographers can find uncommon and different perspectives with changes in angle and height in aerial photography. And I think photographers should remember that you use a drone like a tall tripod, and you do not always have to take photos as if they are a map. You can also use different angles.

How will you be judging the photos in the Xpozer Photo Contest, and what will you pay extra attention to?

Answer: I will be judging each photo very carefully. I'll pay attention to these questions: 

  • What is the subject?
  • How much effort was given in taking that photo? 
  • And what’s the different perspective and view?
