Drone photography exhibit on display

OKOBOJI, Iowa -- It has only been two years since Tom Gustafson first purchased a drone, but in that time he has made quite a name for himself with his aerial photography.

OKOBOJI, Iowa - It has only been two years since Tom Gustafson first purchased a drone, but in that time he has made quite a name for himself with his aerial photography.

A selection of his drone photography will be on display January-March in the Dickinson County Nature Center’s eARTh exhibit area. A special opening reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, with an artist talk at 6 p.m. Appetizers and wine will be served.

The former private pilot has become almost addicted to drone photography and the viewpoint it gives people.

Gustafson’s exhibit includes approximately 10 images of the Iowa Great Lakes area. Photos will include a sunrise panorama, a view of Arnolds Park on the Fourth of July, the Queen II docked on a hazy morning, an abstract wetland view and, his favorite, a shot of Smith’s Bay on a beautiful morning.
The photographic pieces will be for sale, and Gustafson will also have books for sale. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the Dickinson County Nature Center.
