A 20-year-old photographer from Sydney, Australia, is making his mark on a relatively nascent art form: aerial drone photography.

Gabriel Scanu learned how to use a DSLR camera when he was 12, but picked up drone photography after his father, a cinematographer himself, purchased a drone for work and the two experimented with it together, he said in an interview.

To capture an interesting shot, Scanu said that he likes to look for a “busy scene,” someplace with diversity in the landscape, like crowds of people or other natural moving elements.

As for what’s next, Scanu told Business Insider in an email that he is looking to launch a limited collection of prints, starting with an exhibition in Sydney and potentially one in Los Angeles to follow.
