JORD Wooden Watches- More than telling the time

Unless you are familiar with the brand, it's likely that when you're reading the name "JORD" you are pronouncing it wrong.. No worries!
 It is surprisingly pronounced "Yoad" (toad but with a Y).  Jord is the Swedish word for “land”.

We typically wouldn’t partner with a watch making company…  but we like what this one is all about.  JORD focuses on details, styling, comfort, etc.  But most importantly, JORD focuses on making you stop to think and fully immerse yourself in the moment, not just simply telling you what time it is.  As you already know, in our aerial work, we want you to see your everyday life from above.  An aerial view gives you the full perspective and truly allows you to enjoy your experiences more.  In a similar fashion, Father’s Day shouldn't just be another date passed within the year, it should be a meaningful day that is enjoyed. 

Finding the right gift for Father’s Day can be difficult.  You are seeking something that is meaningful but also useful… something that will grab the attention of your Dad and others, and to remind him of how important he is. 

Wearing this luxury wooden watch is exceptional.  It is so comfortable you don’t even know you’re wearing it until you look down!  When you do take a peek, instead of noticing the time, your eye is drawn to the wood craftsmanship along the face and the inner workings of the clock.  If your eye is always distracted by the uniqueness of the watch, you can bet others are noticing those same features.  Wooden watches are rare and it feels good stand out.


Watch Gift Ideas

The JORD watch you see in these pictures is the Zebrawood & Sandalwood Dover Series ( 
Its easy to get the correct size and the wood feels very soft on your wrist.  You can even get the watch engraved if you wish to do so.  Be prepared to answer a lot of questions while wearing a JORD watch because people will ask where to find such a perfectly crafted wooden timepiece.

Moving Photographs (PlotagraphPro)                                                            PLOTAGRAPH PRO

If you've found yourself on this page, you must be somewhat curious as to how we make our moving photos. This page will explain how to get the software, why we chose to use this software with our work, and a brief description on using the software. 

                                                          Click this link for the Plotagraph Pro software: 
                                                          Plotagraph Pro <

                                                                       Plotagraph Pro is a software founded by the award winning photographer Troy Plota. 
                                                                           The software is simple to use and is utilized by digital experts across the world.


We like partnering with Plotagraph Pro because it allows us to bring our photos to life. We are always looking to gain new perspective, which is why we specialize in aerial photography using state of the art drones. Revisiting our photos and applying the Plotagraph Pro software allows us to relive the moments during which the shot was captured. One of our favorite kinds of shots to capture involves suspending the drone in the air within the same GPS coordinates while allowing subject matter to move independently on the screen. However, because of small positioning movements due to onboard computer interference, GPS calibration, or weather changes, these shots can be difficult to capture. Plotagraph allows us to create the same type of shot in an easier and more elegant way while maintaining 4K resolution. We take pride in the precision and quality of our work, and partnering with Plotagraph has allowed us to maintain these standards.

If you have any questions about the software or how we incorporate into our work, please feel free to reach out to us. Head over to our portfolio tab to see more of our favorite photos using Plotagraph Pro. Below you will find some screen shots and a description explaining how easy it is to animate photos using the Plotagraph Pro software. 

What we found is best is to not over complicate the process.  

1.  Select a photo you can envision a cool pattern of movement within.

2.  Determine what parts of the photo you'd like to be moving and what parts of the photo you'd like to remain stationary.

3.  Plot and drag the movement points to animate the photograph in the direction you want.

4.  Polish it up, adjust the video settings, add any other finishing touches, and export in 4K resolution!
