Drones

What used to be the purview of very expensive platforms is now within reach of most photographers! The ability to take aerial videos and photographs can be had for a few hundred bucks, and professional quality for single digit thousands.

But flying a drone for video and photography involves many things beyond just putting a ready to fly quadcopter into the air. There are shots that folks expect to see, shots you'll want to make. But you're moving a remotely piloted aircraft with a pair of small sticks to get that shot...

We start with flying the drone. Not just off the ground around and back - but a series of maneuvers designed to progressively teach a pilot how to position the camera to get the desired image or video.

There are other considerations - legal ones, safety. All are covered in our Drone classes.

We look forward to seeing you in class!
