Looking down at the during twilight โœจ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท. Paris is one of my favourite cities to shoot as there is so much to capture. Back in 2015 enroute to Mauritius we had a 7hr layover in . We met up with the awesome (go check him out) and he showed us a load of hidden spots around the city. One of my goals was to capture a unique angle of the . Antoine took us to Tower one of the few skyscrapers in the city. I captured this evening shot from the 56th floor as the night lights started to come alive.

Monday mornings should start like this ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ’ฆ. Here's a shot from New Years trip to . It was a really special trip as we brought The Mouse ๐Ÿญ (our Mum) along with us! It was quite the global adventure. We flew her from Scotland to NYC, then NYC to LA, LA to Tahiti, Tahiti to Sydney, Sydney to Bali, Bali to Seoul and then finally back to New York. Around the world in 3 weeks! Stopping off at some truly amazing places โœˆ๏ธ๐ŸŒ. Thanks so much for all the positive comments and laughs from yesterday's Story. The main question I got was what's Mum's nationality? She's Colombian ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด. That's why & I don't look that Scottish ๐Ÿ˜‰. I had a lot of fun looking in the vault and finding that footage. I'm still laughing at my mum's face when she pied me ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‚. Here's to a good week ahead guys! I'm hoping something big at will get finalized this week, stay tuned ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ .

tomjauncey: Here

Here's a new edit of one of my all time favourite drone shots taken during sunrise in , Thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ๐ŸŒ…. This is the incredible Wat Plai Laem Temple, known for the famous โœ‹๐Ÿฝ. I got so lucky with the weather here as the fog started to roll in through the palm trees during sunrise ๐ŸŒด. Sunrise and sunset are always the best times to create content due to the light. It's such a good feeling when you've got up early to capture the moment and you get an awesome showing in the sky! What was special about this moment in was I was the only person in the temples during sunrise. It was completely empty and peaceful until a group of 10 stray dogs decided to surround me and check out the drone ๐Ÿถ ๐Ÿš. "Da ya like dags". Who knows that movie quote? ๐Ÿค”. For the aspiring creators, the last 3 photo posts were all edited on my phone using VSCO, Snapseed & Instagram edit tools. You really can work wonders on your phone if you put in the time and play around with all the mobile features. Happy Sunday guys ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. .

tomjauncey: Where are you guys going on your summer

Where are you guys going on your summer vacation? ๐Ÿ˜Ž This shot was taken from Sunset Ashram, a quaint beach bar/restaurant back in 2015 during a trip to ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ. As you know, all I listen to is Electronic Dance Music and there's no better place in the world then Ibiza to experience it. There's two very polar opposite sides to the island though. The crazy nightlife seen which depending on where you stay can get pretty rowdy. Through to the hidden gems and cultural heritage of the . If you go to Ibiza you have to experience both. We went for a week and did one night of parties followed by one night off where we explored everything the island has to offer. is a must visit! It's a smaller island just off Ibiza that has some of the clearest blue waters found in Europe ๐Ÿ’ฆ. On the party side you have so many places to choose from. & are probably the two most mainstream spots with and 10 being a little more underground. DC10 is probably the most raw Ibiza nightlife experience. The location is in an old airport hanger and a few years back it had no roof so you'd experience the planes taking off and landing, literally coming over head only a few hundred feet above the dance floor โœˆ๏ธ. Sadly they've had to put the roof on which is a shame as it made for quite the interesting experience. Who's got a funny Ibiza vacation story? Mine was climbing the wall of the Pacha hotel after a night out and bombing their swimming pool, I had to get out of there pretty damn quickly ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝ. Bring on the summer โ˜€๏ธ

tomjauncey: The rewarding view from #LionsHead, 2,000ft above

The rewarding view from , 2,000ft above Cape Town ๐Ÿฆ. Hopefully you guys enjoyed my flashback yesterday to . & I went over New Years which is their summer and the ideal time to visit. Every morning we ran up Lion's Head to kick off a healthy day. It takes between 1-2hrs to hike depending on your fitness. We were running for about 30 minutes, I'd highly recommend it ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ. The one thing that I'm kicking myself about not doing while we were in is the Great White Shark diving ๐Ÿฆˆ. You all know how much I love sharks ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. Gansbaai is the best spot to experience the sharks. It's just over 2hrs drive from Cape Town. I'm dying to get back and film the Great Whites with my drone. How insane would that be! ๐Ÿ˜ณ. As much as I'd be freaking out I'd have to get in the cage too, all for the IG Story haha ๐Ÿ˜‚. Who's done it before? I'd love to hear about your experience ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ.
