Photographer captures unusual set of images across North Devon using new drone technology.
A BIDEFORD photographer has gone to unusual heights to capture a set of images across North Devon – from the sky.
Chris Catullo began using drone technology, with a HD camera attached, to capture cityscapes from 3,000ft when he was living in Dubai.
Now back in Bideford, Chris has brought the new technology to North Devon to fly over more familiar landscapes from a slightly less veritgo-inducing 1,000ft.
The 32-year-old said word soon spread about the drone on social media and he is currently making a promotional video for the Calvert Trust for free.

“People often come and talk to me about it when I am flying the drone because it’s so new and unusual for North Devon.
“There is the issue of privacy but that is why we are always very careful where we fly – mostly people are just curious.”
