If you’ve ever considered getting a drone but could never quite justify committing to such a purchase, we’re here to convince you to take the plunge. Or more accurately, Renee Lusano is. She’s also here to remind you that your selfies will never be as cool as hers, no matter how hard you try.

I think it’s safe to say that these are better than anything you’ve ever taken with a selfie stick.

About a year ago, the Los Angeles-based designer and illustrator started taking photos and videos by attaching her GoPro to a drone. Also an avid traveler, Lusano takes her drone (which she’s named Furby) with her all over the world, capturing breathtaking aerial shots of the places she’s been.

Her life may seem like like one huge vacation, but there’s a lot of hard work involved, too. “Thanks to social media, I can edit out my boring days and all you ever see is when I’m on vacation,” she says.

Her photos capture everything from majestic natural scenes to happy moments with her friends.

Oh, and just in case you didn’t think that was cool enough, she also takes plenty of videos with her drone.

On our trip to Italy we came across this fortress overlooking the sea in Porto Ercole, and it wasn’t until I watched back the video that I discovered the fortress’ cool shape

My friend @drewbreeze420 aka Jeans Wilder makes the most beautiful music, and he asked me to edit a video from some of my drone footage for a song from his final album. Wish I could post the whole song/video, but you can find it on my website wrenee.com!!!

First and maybe last shot like this one for South Africa and for Furby 2 who went for a swim in the bay yesterday and is currently drying out in a cooler of rice.

We hope that these photos will inspire you to step up your selfie game. You don’t have to buy a drone, but at least stop taking selfies in your bathroom mirror. You’re better than that.

You can see more of Lusano’s adventures on Instagram, and check out photography from her many adventures on her website.

Drone technology is an adventurer’s dream. For more amazing travel footage, check out the sights this drone caught on film:
