The man behind Tom Drones is Panagiotis Tomadakis, a distinguished creative aerial cinematographer. In August 2017, his work was chosen as the Official Selection of the Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) Drone Film Festival, among the 35 best Drone Films in the World, presented by SanDisk. These were screened across 11 major cities in Australia and New Zealand from 24 September to 3 November 2017.
Previously, in September 2016, he was selected by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture to take aerial pictures and film for the first time the ancient port of Epidaurus. The aerial shooting that took place there was of significant historical importance because it revealed to the Ephorate of the Underwater Antiquities in Greece the existence of two ancient piers and it was the first official photography shooting of the “Sunken City” and the ancient Epidaurus port since the 1970s when Dr. Charalabos Krintzas (http://www.parnonas.gr/3594/news/to-orama-gia-tin-epidavria-gi/), Honorary Director of the National Hellenic Epigraphic Museum and Former Trustee of the Argolis Antiquities, shot the site from a hot air balloon.
Specializing in yachting, shipping & hotel promotional video production, extreme sports filming & photography, wedding aerial filmmakinglive broadcasting using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones) and landscape aerial photography, Panagiotis delivers a unique spectacle to viewers that is breathtaking. Currently, he is working on a windsurfing documentary that will be released in 2019. Panagiotis resides in Limassol, Cyprus but undertakes projects worldwide.

Highlights
•    In September 2016, Panagiotis photographed and filmed from above the “Sunken City” and the port in Ancient Epidaurus in Greece, in cooperation with the municipality of Ancient Epidaurus, the Ministry of Culture in Greece and the China Xinhua News Agency. The aerial shooting that took place there was of significant historical importance because it revealed to the Ephorate of the Underwater Antiquities in Greece the existence of two ancient piers and it was the first official photography shooting of the “Sunken City” and the ancient Epidaurus port since the 1970s when Dr. Charalabos Krintzas (http://www.parnonas.gr/3594/news/to-orama-gia-tin-epidavria-gi/) Honorary Director of the National Hellenic Epigraphic Museum and Former Trustee of the Argolis Antiquities, shot the site from a hot air balloon.
 
•    In January 2017, Panagiotis filmed the National Hellenic Slalom Windsurfing Champion, Mr. Zois Theocharis. This video (https://vimeo.com/201150044) instantly became very popular mainly because of its unique breath-taking footage and was widely shared across the social media and the internet. It also featured in ZoomNet’s episode on the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, a high tech TV programme on the National Spanish TV Channel RTVE (http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/videhttp://www.rtve.es/alacarta/videos/zoom-net/zoom-net-coches-mobile-world-congress-4-years-from-now-lego-worlds/3948241/). The Windsurf Journal wrote about this video (http://www.windsurfjournal.com/article,news,zois-theocharis-et-un-drone-a%C2%A0-artemida,6120) and drew from this the potential that drones have in live streaming and the importance of and necessity for a good pilot when filming with drones.
•    In May 2017, Panagiotis broadcasted live while flying his drone in a very demanding context for drones, the Piraeus Container Terminal in Greece. He broadcasted live to more than 35 million people via the China Xinhua News FacebookTwitterYoutube accounts in order to show aerial footage of the “COSCO Netherlands” vessel docking in Piraeus after a significant trip along the ancient maritime “Silk Road” as part of the “One Belt One Road” Initiative (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Belt_One_Road_Initiative).
