This is how a drone sees Penang

Drone camera pilot Warren Tan, 28, has eyes on Penang that few can match. He has a recorded flight telemetry of 535.3km around the state and has captured over 3,500 photographs of how an eagle could the state flying up to 500m above ground.

Tan flies for people who need a better look at things. Event organisers call him in to photograph open air functions from the sky. Developers ask him to shoot expanses of land at varying heights so they would know more about their land than any map can tell. Building owners hire him to take videos of external walls of their towers to do maintenance checks.
