I'm a patent and trademark attorney at Hansccom, Alexeev & McDaniel LLP ( whenever I'm not flying my drone. We own a small resort in Thailand (Thai-West Resort) and I get over there a few times a year to fly. Whenever I travel on business, I always try to bring along my drone.

Eric Dupin CEO DronestagramDear members of the Dronestagram community,
Four years ago I created this site as a side project. As an amateur drone pilot since the beginning, I had the idea of building the first social network dedicated to drone photography. Everything was free and we have not earned a single penny from Dronestagram as of today. However, we quickly found that the tim it took to build and maintain Dronestagam turned our passion into a full time job. I don’t regret any of the time or effort that we have put into Dronestagram, and am very happy to have done what I could for the drone community. Every day I let your pictures take me away to exotic places. But, Dronestagram needs to grow and we can’t do it alone.
Now we know that displaying ads to get cash does not fit for a platform like Dronestagram (low revenues, bad user experience), and this is the reason why we call on you: we need your financial support to continue and build a strong business model.
We have two priority projects:
  • Work on a new version of the site (desktop and mobile)
  • Evolve towards a market place that will allow all members to sell their photos directly on the site. EDIT : the market place is live !
The benefit for you? Through the website, you will be able to monetize your work by selling your photos. Dronestagram will do your advertising and take care of everything else.
All of this costs money, and I have decided to address you straight away, inviting you to take part in the journey with a donation.
Of course you are totally free to choose the amount of your donation, but trust me, right now every Euro, franc, dollar, ruble, yen, kroner, baht, and ruppee will help.
But whenever the amount, above all, you will contribute to a unique community that shows the beauty (and wounds) of the world from a bird's eye view.

You can donate via Patreon, it takes a few seconds and you're done ! Become a Patron!
