Join Backcountry Journeys and Matt Meisenheimer this summer for the most thrilling and unique photography tour ever conceived!
Our latest “sky-based” photography tour will take you high above the rolling landscapes of south-central Wisconsin as we strap you to Matt Meisenheimer’s drone, offering the unique chance to make some of the finest images of Matt’s home state of Wisconsin.
You’ll be saying, ‘We’re not in Kansas anymore’ after this one, so that’s what we’ve decided to call it.
We couldn’t think of a more implausible way of upping the proverbial ‘ante’ with our photography tours. In the past, we’ve been constrained to a vehicle, boat, shuttle, small aircraft, or even just our own feet as means to arriving at magnificent locations and scenes. Today, BCJ takes things to new heights by adding photographing while strapped to a drone into that mix.
Drone photography has literally exploded over the past few years, and it is not difficult to see why. We’ve all seen unique images one could only get from high above something amazing. These images could only have been taken with the use of a drone. But not like this. Those images were taken by a flying drone with a small camera attached. For this tour, we’ll strap you to the drone where you’ll be able to fly high into the sky, lining up compositions with your wide-angle lens others can only dream about.
Yes, you read that right. We’ll be actually strapping YOU, and your camera, to a drone before flying you high into the Wisconsin sky so that you too can share in the fun previously reserved for the attached cameras.
See sights like Matt Meisenheimer’s house, the Wisconsin Dells, medium-sized business parks, and if there is time and the weather behaves, even a random cornfield, among so much more.
We get it, regular old photography isn’t for everyone. Some of you are just aching for more. We now have the perfect offering for those tired of having their photographic explorations being limited by being stuck on the ground, and this is it!
Upon returning to the stability of terrestrial dirt (the ground), you’ll be treated to your choice of either a Spotted Cow beer (Wisconsin’s pride and joy) or time spent with an actual spotted cow.
So, don’t delay! Get yourself registered today for the We’re Not in Kansas Any more drone photography tour with Backcountry Journeys, and saddle up for some high-flying photography action from the skies. Group sizes must be kept small to accommodate Matt’s drone, so this trip is limited to whoever actually believes this by this point in the article.
(p.s. No offense whatsoever was intended for either Kansas or Wisconsin during the writing of this parody piece).
