  1. This was my first bigger building I've shot for an architecture clien. I mainly do real estate but I had a lot of fun shooting video and photos. I'll post the video when it's done but I was curious to see what kind of feedback I can get from this group on the photos.
  2. Was asked by Alan Perlman, where I fitted in here. I am a forty five year professional photographer who was always feet on the ground. I did use a fifteen meter telescopic mast for specialised aerial photography as it was cheaper than hiring a helicopter. My move to drones in my senior days is to enable me to film and shoot stills from one piece of kit. As soon as we mange to sell our property in Brazil we will be buying a cruising yacht and set off on my lifes last and hopefully great adventure. Exciting video will play a major part in this venture and drones will deliver what I need. I have checked out many on this site and have got it down to two or three at the moment. That's, I believe how |I fit in here..;-)
  3. Hello everyone. I'm a longtime commercial photographer, videographer and novice drone pilot based in Boise, Idaho working on certification so I can shoot in urban areas and controlled-airspace when the need arises. I'm using a Mavic Pro.
  4. I have been a pro photographer for over 25 years and want to expand my business with a drone. With so many on the market I'm a little lost as to were to start with a purchase. I plan to use the drone for Wedding, construction, and some portrait. So quality is important. low light not really a issue. Can anyone help with a good starting point to add to my already existing business?
  5. I'm looking to become an unmanned pilot in the video/photography market with real estate and weddings. Do you really need to take the course or can you simply get all the study guides? Anybody know the answer? I just bought a DJI Phantom 3 4k. Going to register it today. Another question. If I'm not starting commercial yet should I register it as a hobbyist or commercial if I'm planning to later on? Thanks in advance.
  6. Alright so i have been doing photography for years as a hobby, spent lots of time with my nikon D5100, shot weddings for friends in spain, and i now have a 333 exemption pending for my business (it should be noted i am a teacher by profession and not a photographer, youth is wasted on the young) I am pretty well versed in photography but what i have been realizing lately is that i have no real good system of organization for identifying my photos and videos for later dates. I thought this might be a good time to see what others use or do to help be able to find that one amazing sunset video from february 2014, etc. I have literally thousands of photos and videos, backed up on site, off site and on the cloud, but with so many; being able to go find ones from before with any amount of certainty is getting harder to do. Do you use an app, have a particular way of saving or naming files, do you utilize a tag system, a separate spreadsheet? Would love to here what the community has on this topic!
  7. Hey, just my introduction! I am a photographer of 15+ years and started flying UAVs about 1 year ago. I love to create stunning images with my Phantom 4 and also shooting a lot of video. I am 107 Certified and looking for ways to make some money in this business. So this is me and here is one of my favorite photos I have taken so far. Iceland If anyone is in my area let me know so we can hook up and go fly or just talk business My number is 214-516-8430
  8. Hi everyone, I've been learning Final Cut Pro to make more professional movies, but I have a quick question regarding still photos. I know how to add still photos to a video timeline, and incorporate them into a video... that's not what I'm inquiring about. Rather, if I wanted to apply color correction to a still photo, and then save it as a new updated photo (not a video), can I do that within FCP? If so, how? Thanks.
  9. Hello, I'm Roger, and I'm from Manchester, UK. I have no experience of drone flying yet, but I've been researching information to start up a commercial drone photographic business. I'm starting to get some ideas about regulations and also licence issues. I have also looked into the availability of suitable drones and also into training programmes. This would be a career move for me. I have some reasonable photographic knowledge, but as yet, little video shooting and editing experience. I have looked into the sort of timescales expected to get CAA clearance and know that the whole venture could take several months to get going. I did start to think that it may be beneficial to get my hands on a much cheaper starter-drone and get some real practice and intuition going, flying as a hoby / recreational pilot before attempting to undertake professional training flying a heavier and more expensive commercial quadcopter. Does anybody have anything to add to this? Also, Northern England is quite well know for rainy weather throughout the winter. Does anybody have any comments on keeping such a business going between November and March,where rain can prevent flying? Thanks.
  10. Hi all- I work for a solar energy company based in Washington DC. We have about a half dozen jobs that we'll need some great photos shot via drone. Anyone in the area interested in the gig? Please email me: joel (at) arcadiapower (dot) com. Thanks!
  11. Hey again guys. The moment is finally here. We are obtaining our certifications and in search of jobs. Because this market is "new", in a sense, what is the "standard" or ball park pricing we are charging for different services. (Yes there are many). We can say it's based upon location, experience, demand. Yes those all play a role. However, at the moment it's hard to justify pricing. Simply because there isn't much in this industry just yet. For myself, I'm starting off shooting real estate and exteriors for builders. What did photographers charge who shot out of a helicopter? Or what are you guys, and girls, basing your pricing off of to justify to your clients (in whatever area you may service)? Eventually our competition will be charging so low it'll be insane, but what is the standard at the moment to make the majority of the clients agree? Any input is appreciated! -Wash
  12. Mike from Limerick, Pennsylvania a small community northwest of Philadelphia near Valley Forge in Montgomery County. I am a semi-pro photographer if that really means anything. What I do on the professional side is Real Estate Photography mostly residential with a few commercial buildings. Most of my commercial work has been exterior photographs as the residential has been for agents’ new listings inside and out to be used on their websites or the MLS. As the drone industry grows, especially in photography, I want to add aerial drone photography to my photography business. Never been asked to provide the service but I believe it will become an important part of real estate photography. I don’t own a drone yet, look around plan to buy a cheap one to lean and practice. My photography background spans over a period of 50 years with 12 years as a Pa Air National Guard photographer in the 111th Combat Support Sq. base at the former Willow Grove NAS. An interesting point is they are now flying drones, MQ-9. As a hobbyist I enjoy shooting landscapes, flowers and waterfalls see www.photographybymikefisher.com. On the professional side I shoot events and real estate see www.realesatefoto.com. I spent 40 years in the commercial corporate real estate industry developing retailers such as Blockbuster, Parts America, McDonald's, KFC and others. With all these companies I used some type of aerial photography in the corporate presentation. I shoot events for different organizations and yearly for Secret Santa sponsor by the Committee for the Benefit of the Children. Sum it all up, hope to learn and share here.
  13. Hello everyone, I am a teacher educator in Winnipeg, Canada with a new drone! I am looking to connect to other educators at all/any levels of education to explore innovative uses of drones for teaching and learning. Drones are termed as 'disruptive technologies' in education that provide opportunities for creativity and innovation. I'm looking forward to connecting and sharing. I am lucky to have a son who is an acrobatic pilot and aircraft engineer who can help me study certifications such as CARS and other requirements as I am looking to become a certified drone pilot in Canada. #eyeshigh Eva
  14. Nice day for flying
  15. Can you use the camera on a drone to zoom in while flying and can you also move the camera to?
  16. When you do inspections do you have to do photos and videos or can you just take photos on what your inspecting?
  17. Hi Alan, Rob Buchanan here, I just wanted to say hello to you and all the other members out there and introduce myself! I must say Alan you have done a Fantastic job of putting all of this information together (website & forum) for us R/C flyers out there to use & enjoy! MANY Thanks to you! :-) I have been involved in the IT & video business for 15+ years. Been flying a few different multi-rotor drones (Syma, UDI, HubSan) since last year and recently got a Phantom 3 Pro back a few months ago. I just recently started mentioning my drone services to real estate investors & agents (prior clients) that primarily focus on homes & acreages starting at $500K and up. The response so far has been pretty well received... In early December I applied for my 333 exemption ( I have since received my docket # now just waiting for the final word) My new website http://www.dronewerksmedia.com/ is basically done and I am still tweaking & updating a few minor things here & there (need to add more images & custom footage, etc.) and working on creating a "portfolio" of custom footage and other video examples. I'm already planning to buy an Inspire 1 PRO system as business picks up... Back in October I became a member of UAVSA http://www.uavsa.org/ then in December I also joined AMA http://www.modelaircraft.org/ as I saw the benefits of each and thought it would be a good idea? I read in their literature that when you become a member of the AMA they will cover you with a $2.5 million dollar umbrella policy when you fly for recreational purposes (under their specified guidelines & safety rules) so I figured this way it basically keeps me covered while I practice honing my technical flying skills as I wait for my 333 exemption approval. I am also currently soliciting a few "retired" pilots that hangout at an airport near me to help with the actual PIC requirements of the current 333 exemption. All the footage I have shot so far has been strictly for "recreational purposes" and to practice my flying skills... ;-) Alan what are your thoughts on these two organizations? Do you think it's beneficial to join them and become a member? I am also currently looking for and researching commercial hull insurance. Question: Can I receive any kind of insurance discount by utilizing a 'Parachute system (MARS) or using a "tether" system? As for pricing and custom package creation? I'm still studying the overall market to get a better feel for what other aerial drone companies out there are offering, as I don't want to under or over value my services? I would guess it's a better idea to start a little on the high side with pricing, that way if you need to adjust then It's always easier to offer "lower pricing" than it is to have to raise your prices? Any thoughts? Question: Since the market that I am going after is primarily $500K and up homes & acreages I was recently thinking of creating a floating price scale? something along the lines of 1/2% to 1% of the listed selling price of the higher priced homes? Since each home/property is unique and needs to be presented in its own way. Or would it better to simply have a flat rate per job or hour? I am open to any comments or suggestions as I start on this new Aerial ADVENTURE! I'm still somewhat of a newbie and just keep flying as much as I can to gain experience and log all the flight hours I can & and practice flying safely for my future clients & customers... Thanks again Alan for all your Hard Work and Dedication to the drone community! Happy Flying Everyone! I welcome any comments or suggestions and am open to sharing any tips, thoughts or ideas to help us all become BETTER pilots... Rob Buchanan DroneWerks Media 281-384-5287 I couldn't resist Alan as you said to share any projects or current work were doing... Here are a couple of clips I recently made: Below are a few "test" sample clips I made while honing my flying skills...
  18. Hi Everyone, For a few months, I've been involved in creating a huge UAV news site, packed with original interviews, great stories and all the best vids that we could find online. I thought you guys might be interested to see it, and would love some feedback on the site. You can see it here: http://www.dronesfutureskies.com/ Thanks! Jack
  19. I found a free photo site photoscape, was playing around with it, it has stitching capabilities, I wondered if that would be a beneficial pursuit, in photography?
