Andy Mann’s passion for daredevil climbing and multimedia
storytelling is reaching new heights since he began using the Yuneec
Typhoon H with Intel RealSense technology, a drone that can see.
Being stuck between a rock and hard place is when Andy Mann
is at his best. For kicks, he climbs barehanded, wedging fingers and
feet into nooks and crannies to scale some of sheerest cliffs Mother
Nature has to offer. There are few things the 36-year-old rock climber,
diver and arctic explorer likes more than defying gravity and even
death…except capturing and creating visual stories about the thrill of
these vertical conquests.
He seeks out remote summits with spectacular views, often only seen
from the sky. Mann used to capture images from the ground or while
clinging to a rock alongside other climbers, but his creativity was
unleashed when he bought his first camera-equipped drone.
“Drones are a game changer for my line of work,” he said...http://iq.intel.com/drone-photography-vertical-adventures/
