Dimitar Karanikolov is a London-based architect with a passion for photography. Over the last few years his experiments with drone photography have led to an exciting, architectural perspective on some of the most amazingly beautiful places on Earth.

The god's-eye, top-down view that a drone can offer has driven Karanikolov to highlight the geometric patterns that this unique angle can offer. His photographs at times almost flatten out a three-dimensional landscape turning familiar locations into something akin to colorful, vivid architectural blueprints.

His recently published portfolio examining the gorgeous city of Venice makes the iconic yet labyrinthine location look like a surreal tiny model. While his completely top-down perspective on the temples of Myanmar highlight the stunningly complex geometry of these buildings. All these photographs defiantly deliver an unusually and uncanny perspective on locations we are familiar with.

Karanikolov has used several different drones to pull off his amazing work including a DJI Phantom 4 and, more recently, a DJI Mavic Pro. His compelling blend of an architectural aesthetic with modern drone photographic techniques has resulted in some truly impressive images.
