The Benefits of Aerial Photography
When you take a picture or video from the air, you get a bird’s eye view of the targeted area. It allows you to see a perspective you would otherwise not be able to capture. The uses and possibilities for UAVs are endless.
We work with the customer to determine the best angles and flight pattern before we start to fly. While in flight, the customer can observe two monitors in real time that show the camera angles. They can then provide feedback or suggestions as to the best angles they desire.
Some may wonder if UAV/drone technology is safe. From a pilot’s point of view, is is extremely safe, especially compared to other options for aerial photography, such as a helicopter or fixed wing aircraft. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, the collateral damage with a UAV is going to be far less than that of a helicopter or fixed wing plane. A helicopter weighs 1500 pounds, while a UAV/drone weighs less than 2 pounds. Which option do you think would cause the most damage?
Using UAV/drones also reduces the risk factor to human life, property and structure, which reduces the operating cost such as fuel, insurance and fuel emissions. This lower cost is then reflected in the price options we offer our customers.
Notice about Weather Restrictions:
Weather and Mother Nature play a part in determining if we are safe to fly. To ensure picture and/or video quality, it must be a sunny or light-cloud day. In addition to picture quality, it is also enforced so that the UAS/Drones can receive a clear GPS signal. Just like with a large aircraft, for every flight we conduct a pre-flight walk-around to identify potential hazards and observe weather conditions.
