Get to know Graydon Schwartz better.


I’m a digital creator based in the greater Madison area of Wisconsin, with a passion for travel and capturing stunning aerial shots using my FAA-licensed drone. I’ve explored some incredible places around the world, including Australia, Iceland, Canada, and various parts of the US. When I’m not traveling, I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, snowboarding in winter, and relaxing on the lake in summer.

My love for the outdoors and nature inspired me to become a licensed drone pilot. My specialty lies in aerial and landscape photography, and I’m always looking for new ways to capture the beauty of the world around me. My creative expression is my driving force, and I continually strive to improve my skills, competing only against my past self.

I find great satisfaction in documenting the natural world around me, whether it’s landscapes, wildlife, or everyday scenes from small towns. With my camera and drone, I have captured raw emotions and iconic moments that are unique and inspiring. My passion for photography has opened up new possibilities for creative expression, and I’m excited to continue exploring the world through my lens.

Around the time that my partner at the time and I traveled to Canada, I experienced a life-changing event that I feel compelled to write about. Following a firewalking experience at a Tony Robbins seminar, I began to shift my focus towards visualizing new, exciting experiences for my future, rather than simply re-creating the same old patterns. One such experience that I began to dream about was hiking a mountain, which sparked a rush of full-body sensations and brain activity.

Eventually, my vision for the future began to manifest, and I was overcome with a powerful sense of accomplishment, peace, and comfort as we reached the summit of some mountain peak in Western Canada. This incredible moment served as a catalyst for future trips, including solo adventures to Iceland, Nevada, Utah, New York, Canada, Texas, and California. Through these experiences, I realized that I had the power to embark on new journeys alone, and that endless possibilities lay before me. It was a truly transformative experience that allowed me to become a new and better version of myself.

It wasn’t until I was introduced to longer meditation sessions later on that I came to realize that pushing all the time isn’t necessary in life. Although hard work is still required, I learned that life has a way of guiding us towards our goals when we’re ready to receive it.

With the help of shifting my consciousness, support from loved ones, and releasing some of my fears, the idea of traveling to Iceland became attainable. It was suggested that I take an Iceland Tour, and that’s when I discovered Viking International Phototours.

During the trip, I captured some stunning photographs of the ice diamonds, geysers, and natural landscapes. Later, I ventured out on my own and used my DJI Mavic 2 Pro to capture more footage. Recently, I compiled most of this drone footage into a video, which I’m excited to share with you. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed capturing these mesmerizing scenes.

Today, I find joy in writing about a wide range of topics that pique my interest, including electric vehicles, favorite products and services, how-tos, meditation and breathwork, hiking, and sometimes just reflections on life itself. It’s been a fulfilling experience to express myself in different forms of media and to share my passions with others.

At the time of writing this, I have recently created a new video that I am eager to share with you. Explore Australia’s Natural Beauty with Soothing Meditation Music – Short Drone Film:
