Culture of architectural photography is a branch of photography that exposes the aesthetic value of an architectural object of a building. The presence of drone technology in the culture of photography recently brings changes to the results of the photography itself and one of them is in the area of architectural photography.  This study aims at verifying the influence of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle technology (Drone) on the artwork of architectural photography. The method used in this research was qualitative method with descriptive technique. Data were collected through library research and field research with observation and interview techniques. The culture using drones offer significant results in architectural photography artworks. The high flexibility of the drone gives results on a very detail architectural artwork. Using a drone also provides a very dazzling point of view that cannot be obtained by using only a DSLR camera. Furthermore by using drone, the artworks of photography are no longer limited by areas that cannot be reached. Therefore by using a drone, the photographer can make architectural photography works with unlimited perspective dimensions. There are some weaknesses of using this drone that the camera and lens are not adjustable and they also cannot be changed.
