Paguio, a certified nursing assistant and longtime landscape photographer, took up drone photography three years ago as a hobby “to show people different angles and perspectives of the landscape.” The DJI Phantom Vision Plus quadcopter he uses captures high-definition, 1080p videos and 14-megapixel stills; its stabilization technology produces stunningly clear, sharp images and smooth, graceful moving shots.

Paguio will return frequently to the Wizer Block to record the project’s progress in still photos and on video. Watch for them on www.facebook.com/LakeOswegoReview, at www.lakeoswegoreview.com and in the pages of The Review.

His latest video is also available on YouTube:
