Meet him now! 👇

“Hi Agora Community my name is Yura Borschev and I am a 34 years old drone photographer from Russia. My photography is all about aerial perspectives and although it started as just a hobby 3 years ago, today it is a big part of my life and has lead to me to work with big brands like Adidas and Nike.

Our #Autumn2019 Hero – Yura Borschev

I was so happy when I found out the news that I had become the #Autumn2019 Hero especially with this photo as it is one of my favorites! I would like to thank Agora for their platform for giving photographers the opportunity to win money and recognition for their work!”

Our #Winter2019 Hero & #Autumn2019 Guest Judge – Christoph Seabeacher

We called upon Christoph Seabeacher (@the.rolling.drone), our #Winter2019 Hero, to lend the Community a hand with choosing the Hero! Find out why he chose this winning photo! 👇

“My name is Christoph and I’m a 29 year old frontend developer from Austria. My passion for photography started when I was young, but unfortunately I forgot about this beautiful hobby until I bought my first DSLR two years ago. Some months later I decided to buy a drone and started to capture a lot of pictures from high above. I totally fell in love with photography again. Hopefully myself and all of my work can motivate people to try out new technologies and capture beautiful moments with it!”

Guest judge’s selection criteria: “I selected @borsch’s shot as it is such a creative and awesome photo of a such a curious place that could only be appreciated in this way from above. The colors are beautiful and the angle I believe reflects a very modern way of taking pictures which is rarely seen. Congratulations!”

On behalf of the entire Agora Team, congratulations to Yura Borschev for becoming the Hero! 👏🎉
