The Australian landscape is a painter’s palette of the most splendid colours. We take a look with a bird’s-eye view.

Michael Schweiger has spent the past 30 years travelling and exploring the part of the world he calls home –Western Australia. “I love to camp, fossick for gold and minerals, and of course take photos,” he says.

Many of Michael’s photos are captured in remote places. “I’ve battled mosquitos, flies, midges, dingos, rogue bulls, heat and dust, and I’ve loved every minute of it!

“My images are an expression of my search for beauty and my never-ending quest to connect with nature. Western Australia offers a strong palette of contrasting colours, textures and patterns.

“I hope my images encourage others to seek their own journeys to explore and marvel at this beautiful planet that we find ourselves on.”

For the curious among you, here’s the gear Michael uses to capture these extraordinary landscapes:

  • DJI Mavic Pro 3 Cine Drone
  • DJI Mavic Pro 2 Drone (backup drone)
  • Nikon Z7 for most ground based photography
  • Nikon P1000 for telephoto photography
  • DJI Pocket and DJI Action for Videos on the ground.
