Hi there, my name is Craig Williams and i was born and raised on the Island of St Helena, i was always into technology. I grew up in the confines of four walls of my bedroom, tinkering with computers, laptops, tablets anything that was considered technology. Now its a passion for DJI Drones!!
Growing up i left school, and went out to work within the construction industry, something which i did enjoy and glad i have some experience under my belt of that type of work. From there i was into the computer support industry working for the local Government on the island, as an IT Support Officer.
On the side i also ran a small computer repair business for locals on the island, but this i gave of after a while as i wanted something new.
Then in flew drones, my first drone was a DJI Phantom 2 with a Go Pro attached to it. Of from there i made the move to the Phantom 4 Pro which was absolutely mind blowing.
Moving through the ranks of DJI Drones
Owning a drone on the island is a good thing, people always try and ask what it is, what it does etc. The Phantom 4 Pro was awesome but i also wanted something smaller and more mobile, i moved on to the DJI Mavic Pro was what i needed. unfortunately i had issues with this one as it went straight into the ocean. To bounce back from this, a decision had to be made on which one to get as a replacement. This is when the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom was released.
The Mavic 2 Pro was the preferred and boy has DJI got out from and will always be out in front with drones. This camera is a beast and the drone itself.
So that is about me, and how i got into drone photography and where i was born and raised. Yes it is a small island, but if you haven’t heard of it, google it and also type Napoleon Bonaparte, almost always when mentioning his name every knows after where and what St Helena Island is.
Anyway Happy flying and Fly Safe!
