Architect Matt Mulligan started flying drones so that he could photograph homes, but his passion for aerial imagery has since taken off in a more creative direction. Mulligan founded Hawk Visuals in June as a way to take his drone photography to the next level and inspire others to explore their surroundings.
“There’s something inspiring about seeing areas you’ve been to your whole life from 400 feet in the air,” says Mulligan, who does most of his aerial photography at dawn and dusk. While his client base is mainly real estate and land developers and businesses, Mulligan also enjoys capturing creative perspectives of local landmarks like the Mayflower II. “I intended to show the Mayflower II in a dramatic and awe-inspiring light—something its historical predecessor deserves.”
