About Graydon

Get to know Graydon Schwartz better.


I am a digital creator from the greater Madison area in Wisconsin. I love to travel, and have been to many amazing places with my drone. Some of my favorite locations include Australia, Iceland, Canada and various parts of the United States.

When I’m not traveling, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Summers are spent on the lake, and winters are spent skiing and snowboarding.

Creativity is my truth. I’ve been able to focus on my creative expression and the need to be competitive falls away. I’m only competing against who I used to be and it drives my desire to continue to create more and more. It’s my own thing and nobody can take that away from me.

I have always had a passion for the outdoors. This love of nature led me to become an FAA-licensed drone pilot, which allows me to operate commercially within the United States. My true specialty is in aerial & landscape photography. I find great satisfaction in capturing the beauty of any landscape, whether it be a small town, the cliffs of Iceland, or the rivers of the Midwest.

The drone has been a creative outlet for me. The ability to fly freely in the sky and capture unique shots from all angles is inspiring, not only as an artist but also just trying something new every day!

I love to document the natural world around me with a camera. I love to document the natural world around me with a camera. Whether it’s landscapes or wildlife, I am constantly on lookout for new opportunities in front of my lens! Through photography I have created pieces that capture raw emotions and captured iconic moments like no one else can do- drones offer an exciting way forward as well!
