Sheikh Hamdan is known to be one of the most adventurous royals in the world. The young prince often uses social media to showcase his passion for travel, knack for adventure, love for photography and affinity for animals and his feeds are filled with some of the most breathtaking photos around. 

Dubai's crown prince seems to have merged his passions as he introduced his 'new cameraman' on Instagram over the weekend in a post which features a falcon with what looks like a GoPro strapped to his head. Of course, we are all kinds of excited to the see the content produced from his latest venture.

Sheikh Hamdan, affectionately known as Fazza to his fans, has been an active advocate for the GCC's beloved tradition of falconry. The iconic regional tradition, which was historically used to hunt prey in the desert by the indigenous tribes has now become a beloved cultural past-time with Fazza working to keep falconry alive amongst the younger generations of Emiratis.

Falcons are some of nature's fastest birds of prey, often reaching speeds of upto 300km per hour when hunting. With those kinds of speeds and Fazza's award-winning falcons, it seems the visionary prince has just taken content creation to a whole new level.
