One photographer is taking a step closer to getting a bird’s eye view of the north east’s scenery thanks to his latest piece of equipment.

After sufferinlg a heart attack, Paul Carr from Ashington, was bought a quadcopter to encourage him to get out and about, and has been taking stunning aerial photographs of the north east – including St Mary’s Island in Whitley Bay – ever since.

Paul gained his commercial license for flying unmanned aircraft vehicle (UAV) and has taken to the skies to snap some famous landmarks including St Mary’s Island in Whitley Bay, Northumberlandia in Cramlington, and the new Northumbria Specialist Emergency Hospital.

He is now in the process of becoming a qualified commercial UAV pilot.

“When I qualify, I intend to make a DVD of the north east from a bird’s eye view perspective, and give everybody the opportunity to see what the sights look like from the sky.”
