Hi, my name is Andrew, the boy from Lerwick behind the controls of ‘shetlandbydrone’, a handle I mainly started around three years ago on Instagram so I could document all the places I’d been in Shetland with friends and family.
I bought my first drone around eight years ago and it’s proved to be the catalyst for me to get out and about and combine a love of the outdoors and eventually a hobby of taking mostly landscape images. How can you go wrong with the views on offer around all corners of these islands?
Over time my images have become more popular than I could have imagined they would be. Shetland is the reason for that, a truly spectacular place at any time of the year and a group of islands I’m proud to call home.
I hope you enjoy the small collection of photos you see here as much as I’ve enjoyed trekking to get to most of them.
