Inspiring Creators to Inspire the World

Creativity is at the heart of every dream. Every idea, every groundbreaking leap that changes our world starts with the vision of talented creators. DJI gives these creators the tools they need to bring their ideas to life.

DJI platforms empower them to capture images that were once out of reach. Their flying and camera stabilization systems redefine camera placement and motion. Amazing photos and videos, treasured personal memories, and high-end professional imagery are captured every day, in every corner of the world using DJI products.

DJI technology does more than simply enable creators, they push visionaries to go beyond the limits of what is thought possible, inspiring them to inspire the world.

Use of the newest DJI Drones during the Workshop

DJI Phantom 4 Pro

Equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor camera capable of shooting 4K/60fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14 fps.The adoption of titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the rigidity of the airframe and reduces weight, making it similar in weight to the Phantom 4.


The DJI Mavic Pro is a small yet powerful drone that turns the sky into your creative canvas easily and without worry,helping you make every moment an aerial moment. Its compact size hides a high degree of complexity that makes it one of DJI’s mostsophisticated flying cameras ever.
