Stingray Fam Jam by Pierce Gainey
"This shot has been one of my all time favorite photos to date. I took this on my drone and I was hovering above the water about 1 FT above.
It certainly was a nerve racking feeling seeing how close you are above the water and one wrong move could send your beautiful drone plummeting into the salty ocean.
Luckily that's not the case and I was able to capture this rad photo of this stingray family cruising around looking for its next meal."

About Pierce Gainey
My love for photography all started with a disposable camera that was gifted to me. At that time, it was just a fun little camera that I used to capture all of my shenanigans.
From there, it only progressed. More film cameras to more professional cameras, and my room slowly started to look like the camera and tech aisles of Best Buy. Then my love sparked a new direction: DRONES. As soon as these things came out a few years ago, I was on a mission. I saved and saved and saved until I could finally purchase a drone.
At that time, I had to install my own gimbal (device that holds the camera steady) and attach my GoPro to it. It had no live view, no crazy sensors to avoid objects or any cool features that are on all of the new drones. You would have to strap the GoPro on and click record and hope you got the shot. Since then, I’ve gone through many drones, both upgrading and crashing, and my love for photography has grown exponentially.
Drones give a unique perspective and can make an ordinary view from the ground look like an extraordinary view from the sky! I used to get jealous of birds since they always got this view, but my drone has helped make this view possible for me.
