Project Description

YACHTING | 2023

Having lived on an island (Mallorca) since childhood, Oriol Esteve was in continuous contact with the sea and natural environments. A love of sailing and water sports drove him to become a professional sailor on world-class yachts for more than 15 years, sailing on widely diverse seas and vessels. Then, combining his love of the sea and sailing with a degree in graphic arts and a strong dedication to photography, Photonautic was born.

Now, being a professional drone pilot focused on aerial photography in the sailing world and outdoor sports, Oriol Esteve can enjoy both passions, transforming aerial photography and video production to a creative way to develop himself. Having been in constant contact with the sea and with nature’s wide-open spaces has helped him enormously to develop a special kind of sensitivity in his photography and sailing yacht films and water sports. In some ineffable way, he can foresee what is going to happen, e.g. if the sailing yacht is going to tack, or if they are going to deploy their kites, if the windsurfer is going to jump, or which one is a good wave to ride… and all this allows him to position himself ahead of it all and be prepared to capture the best picture or motion.

Oriol Esteve considers himself privileged to be able to develop a profession that is 100% based on passion, in a context familiar to him. He understands where he feels comfortable. His control is his working tool in an environment that he knows profoundly, which offers infinite possibilities. And for sure, all of this pours into the final product.
