Masada is Israel’s #1 tourist destination! No wonder with it’s towering cliffs, amazing views, and rich history! This is why I want wanted to capture such a breath taking place from the air with my Inspire 1 quadcopter this summer. I’ve dreamed of being able to fly since I was a kid and guiding the drone is the closest I’ve ever been to fulfilling that dream. This video work has been featured on Discover Magazine’s blog, United With Israel’s website, and share by Israeli Embassies on social media around the globe!
Altogether it took a couple months to receive permission to film over of Israel’s priceless archaeological treasures. Special thanks to Israel’s National Park Authority! Flying solo (i.e. operating the drone and the camera alone) was a huge challenge, especially on a windy day!
The Masada footage is available for purchase, along with footage of other National Parks, via my Pond5 Stock account. Contact me directly for bulk licensing. Also, see more of my photography and video work at: www.jeffreyworthington.com
