  1. Hey everyone, my name is Cody. I live in the Chicago area. My drone is a mavic pro. My drone-goals are two pronged. I'm looking for a place to collaborate and learn from as I create a successful aerial imaging solutions company. The other prong is to share and get feedback on the cool shots I capture. My background and passion are in photography, and through photography I've found a love to fly drones. I'll attach a shot from my trip to the Ozarks! Here's my website Can anyone point me in the best direction to learn about experiences with Thumbtack and/or DroneBase missions? -Cody

    Good Morning I'm from the twin island nation of Trinidad & Tobago. I'm 29 yrs old and i'm about to embark on the journey of opening my own business. I'm here in the hopes of getting some good advice about my drone pilot journey from the community at large. Looking into getting a Phantom 3 SE......any advice on the matter is appreciated. Love & Blessing TDP
  3. Hello from New Zealand

    Hi, I am a 'late bloomer' but already using drones to map estuarine edge and subtidal habitat. I do a few presentations each year and can augment images with aerial work. Keen to learn how others use drones and keep up with new drone technology.
  4. Starting a new business

    Greetings. Mark here. I have been flying a Phantom 4 for awhile and am planning to get into aerial photography for real estate, weddings, etc. I take my part 107 test tomorrow. Wish me luck. I think I'm ready. I have my business ready to start up as soon as I am officially certified. Looking forward to hearing from any of you who have drone photography businesses. Happy flying!
  5. Great to see all the interest in what is certain to become a vital business. Aerial photography is important to Real Estate. I am the owner of Ocean Discounts. This is a full featured UAS and we offer inexpensive drone opportunities for anyone interested. For Realtors, the final cost is passed to the seller and collected at closing. There are no out of pocket expenses for the agent. Every flight is continent upon a site evaluation and weather conditions. See our website for more information:
  6. Intro

    Hello – I have been flying for about 6 months now. After many years shooting commercial photography, I became interested in videography and now in this airborne camera. I quickly began to see the potential of drones across many different industries. I passed my 107 exam 2 weeks ago and plan to start shooting real estate and whatever else will lend itself to some awesome aerial imagery in order to make this a full-time gig. I live just north of the recently hard-hit Houston area and was wondering if anyone has any experience or advice on how to connect with some of the insurance adjusters that are flooding into town and if there is anything special they are looking for in drone pilots.
  7. Laguna Salada de Torrevieja

    One of my favorite photos, Laguna Salada de Torrevieja in Spain. No editing required. The algae and salt turns the water a pink hue. Shot with a Phantom 4 Pro and I used a Polar Pro ND8 filter.
  8. Property Video

    Here's my most recent effort at producing a property video. I hope you enjoy.
  9. Community

    Hey drone enthusiasts! I LOVE going out to fly and capture beautiful sublime and picturesque videos and photos just like you guys so I want to know a bit more about the community with this quick survey I made. If you guys could spare a literal minute of your time that'd be perfect. It'd really help me learn about the community a bit more. Thanks and happy flying!
  10. Below I am submitting the final project required for the graduation of Ariel Post Production 101. I used iMovie to edit this video. However I am purchasing Final Cut Pro in the very near future. A lot of the editing techniques and controls are similar to Final Cut Pro. 1. the resolution I used for this video was 1080 P at 60 frames per second. I showcase this video on UAc Coach, Vinmeo, Facebook, and Instagram. 2. I tried to use music that showed the dynamic footage and the awesomeness of the wind turbine. 3. I tried to showcase the dynamic size and beauty of the wind turbine I. 4. The story is a simple one. I'm trying to illustrate and advertise the ability to do an aerial visual inspection of the wind turbine. The clarity of the camera and the dexterity of the footage. 5. Three important lessons learned in editing this video, 1. Important to find music and the duration to correspond with the time you want to display the video. 2. I wished I captured a higher view encapsulating all the wind mills in the entire area. Looking back should have been more. 3. One of the important things I learned from the class and editing this video were how to use transitions effectively utilizing the beat of the music. This class was a great help to me in learning the process of editing video. I highly recommend it. I'm also extremely interested in the views and advice I can get from others who have viewed this video. Good or bad I'm looking forward to knowing what I can improve on.
  11. 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.
  12. Old Pro moving up

    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..;-)
  13. Guy Hand

    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.
  14. 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?
  15. Howdy from NW CT

    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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. The moment of pricing

    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
  21. 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 On the professional side I shoot events and real estate see 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.
  22. Introduction

    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
