Born and raised in San Diego, Aldryn has been all over town exploring and documenting the city most of his life. But things changed in 2013 when he purchased his first aerial photography platform. A radio controlled quadcopter created by Dji.com turned the skies over San Diego into his playground. Aldryn has been flying what he calls his Tripod in the Sky; for a couple years now and is rediscovering his own city everyday. Because of the angles and locations this flying camera can be placed into, the perspectives achieved are all one of a kind. This is the very first published all aerial drone coffee table photography book of America's Finest City, San Diego, CA. Aldryn also has a very unique style of shooting his photos. He shoots multiple layers of photos from one position in the sky and stitches them together to create larger composition. He explains a little more of his technique in the book.
Some locations and iconic landmarks include: La Jolla, Del Mar, Balboa Park, Mission Valley, Encinitas, Coronado, Imperial Beach, Mission Beach and San Diego State, USD, Lake Hodges and Rancho Bernardo to name a few.

Aldryn s photography bug happened in the late 90 s early 2000 s as an event photographer/videographer. The digital revolution hit and he was 110% on-board. After a few years shooting film, Aldryn s first professional camera set-up was the Nikon D100. The DSLR revolution changed the game in photography and also enhanced Aldryn s creativity. In the past 10+ years, he has shot weddings, children, families and nurmorous lifestyle and commercial events. Some of his family and children s work can be seen at FromThisDayForth.com
Aldryn is now flying his camera s around on sUAV s (aka Quadcopter/Drones). His first taste of the aerial life was in late 2013 when the DJI Phantom 1 was released. He saw an ad on BHPhoto that was selling this quadcopter that holds a GoPro camera. It took one flight with the GoPro and Drone to instantly get him hooked. He has since owned the DJI Phantom 2 with GoPro gimbal and now flies the DJI Inspire 1.
With multiple recognitions, articles, broadcast news, publications and social exposure, Aldryn continues to pursue his aerial passion and is now releasing his first Aerial Drone Photography photo book, gallery fine-art prints and education seminars.
There has been much hype about this emerging drone technology for the everyday person. Discovering a location from a different vantage point allows seeing a familiar location from a very different perspective. For over 100 years we have been taking and seeing images from an eye level perspective. Taking that camera just 30 or 50 feet higher up, changes the way we see our environment. Aldryn Estacio has accomplished just that - he took his aerial photography platform into the sky and captured the City of San Diego from angles not seen before. The result is a stunning work of art showcasing one of the most beautiful cities in the United States. No matter if you live in San Diego, have visited it or are planning on someday going to this pretty town - this book gives you a good sense of what San Diego (and aerial photography) can offer. --Romeo Durscher - Director of Education at DJI
As a professional photographer I like to collect books where photography is of superb quality. Mr. Estacio has created a wonderful compilation of aerial images of San Diego in this special publication. I will certainly buy it again, and with no doubt, this can be a great gift to surprise any drone pilot, or why not, anyone who appreciates great photography. Congratulations to the author! --Kike Calvo - National Geographic Photographer
Big fan of Aldryn s aerial photos, and now super excited to get my hands on the book! Really looking forward to learning about the FlytPath process behind the photography. Looks awesome! --Dmitry Borodyansky - Photographer
