Randy Braun Bio 2017

Randy Jay Braun has been a professional photographer for thirty years on the island of Maui. For most of those years Braun also owned and operated Hawaii’s most successful photography retail art gallery.

In 2012, the DJI Phantom 1 quadcopter came onto the market and Randy was one of the original photographers in the world to adapt to this new genre of aerial image capture. He began testing consumer drones and cameras for DJI and struck up a full-time working relationship. Braun published the first-ever book about the topic, entitled, Aerial Drone Photography.

Randy Braun began working for DJI in 2014, where he served as Director of Product Experience, teaching people around the world about the practical uses of small consumer and commercial drones. Of particular importance, Braun also leads the “Aerial Still Photography Development Team” for DJI, acting as liaison between the professional imaging community and drone engineers.

Stacy Garlington Bio 2017

Inspiration came during a close encounter with a humpback whale in a kayak near Maui; an experience that forever changed her life. Since then Stacy Garlington spends much of her time studying the art of photography and creating images using small aerial drones.

Stacy noted the tremendous potential of aerial photography during the early stages of the budding small drone industry. She began to create impactful images using basic camera skills.

Her work is now published in both Forbes and TIME magazines — examples of the new perspective achievable using this technology.

“I never had a formal education, so how did I end up with an office in both Silicon Valley and Shenzhen China? I had a dream and I made a choice to pursue what made me happy.”

Stacy now works full time as Product Experience Specialist at DJI, the world’s leading developer of consumer and commercial drones. She continues to teach thousands of people worldwide how to experience the freedom of flight while operating their cameras in the sky.
