You’ve probably never seen Tampa like this, mostly because the technology to produce this kind of video didn’t exist until fairly recently.

A local videographer used a quadcopter drone and a GoPro Hero 3 camera to capture this stunning view of downtown that will remind you how beautiful this city actually is. One real estate blogger says it’s so good, that if you don’t already live in Tampa it will make you want to move here.

In the video you’ll see view from the drone as it zips past the Park Tower and the Rivergate Tower (aka the “beer can building”), gets extremely close to the Tampa Museum of Art and spins above Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.

The video was produced by Tampa native and University of South Florida graduate Ben Bradley, 23, for his video production company Right Hand Films. So far the drone video has racked up nearly 60,000 views since it was posted to Vimeo.

Since starting the Tampa-based production company, projects have taken Bradley around the U.S. and to Jamaica. He’ll travel to Oklahoma City for an upcoming shoot for national brand Smartwater next week, Bradley said.

You can see some of his other work (including some other interesting shots of Tampa architecture) at the Right Hand Films website.
