"National Geographic has been proud to help pioneer the field of photography ever since our first published picture in 1905. Since that day we've fervently supported ideas and missions that not only go 'above and beyond' to push the limits of human potential and provide our fans with new perspectives, but also to champion new technologies with the potential to have a positive impact on taking us all further. This is why we're excited to work with DJI on this inventive aerial initiative," said Con Apostolopoulos, Vice President and General Manager of National Geographic Partners.
