Photographer Amos Chapple was one of the first to try using drones in his work.
He travelled the world for two years, taking aerial photographs with a camera mounted to a quadcopter drone. But now consumer drone use is banned in many locations, and Chapple says the pictures below would be illegal to take now without obtaining special permission.
"There was a window of about 18 months where it was possible to fly these things anywhere and people were excited to see it. I’m glad I made use of that time," Chapple told Business Insider. "The window is now pretty well closed for drone photography in many of these sites."
