  1. Hey all,I understand we are in the drone forum, but for the fellow photographers. I am curious on what laws are in place for photographing a scenic view (publicly) from a private property. (View out of a hotel window.) Will I need permission to sell the image from the place I took the photo from?Im not photographing anything on the private property, simply shooting the view that I can see. However because I'm on private property where the image has been taken, do I need final permission to sell it?I tried searching around and all I seem to find is taking photos on the private property of the actual property or taking photos of private property on public grounds. (if that wasn't confusing!) Thanks all.-Wash
  2. Hey everyone, Finally the video was released to the public. This is the completed promotion video for a 5K race at a local hospital called the "Gaylord Gauntlet". It was a mix of aerial and ground work, very proud of the way the video came out. Leave your thoughts below! Thanks - Wash
  3. Lol that is just as exciting! Congratulations! What is your main purpose for flying?? I would definitely wait as well! haha not worth the stress
  4. Hey everyone! Is anyone excited for November 15? Word on the street the inspire 2 is dropping! I'm still rocking my phantom 3 (I say still like it's ancient). But I can't wait to step it up a notch. I hear people are having issues with their mavic, however I hope things don't slip through the cracks for this release. Any thoughts on the release or their mavic? -Wash
  5. Thanks Tony! [Sadly] I did not charge for this shoot, this is a project that has multiple phases. And I just realized there was a photographer and drone operator already doing the project with a real estate agency Talk about trying to take out the competition. However, I know one of the main builders on the project, so I was able to get in. My hope is to get in and charge for the complete phase and create a package deal to take aerial photos/footage and ground photography of the project. Otherwise this work is all part of the portfolio and demo reel. This way in upcoming spring Ill have something to pitch to future clients and promote my work. -Wash view my website at www.kwphotography.co (NOT .com)
  6. I am a novice in editing, however I did start using Final Cut Pro X, which is where this video was created. So I will be learning more in the future! Thanks for compliments! -Wash
  7. Marcel, all very true. Usage rights always comes into play, and a lot of people do get ripped off. For a recent shoot I did with a builder (ground photography) we did not speak in detail about usage rights. Im in a sense screwing myself however gaining exposure, at this point for me it is fair. Thats great that you are able to go ahead and do that, I admit I didn't even think about doing something so simple like that. Do you end up charging travel expense or just 20 flat? do you make out decently doing this? This statement (above) was one of the most lines Ive had in a while. I looked right over looking the rights to the photos/footage we capture. Granted it is a team project, if things go south I don't own the rights. Is there a way to "split" rights (for lack of knowledge). Yes I will end up watching the seminar Alan posted. Thanks for this! Always a big help! -Wash
  8. Thanks Marcel. That is exactly the plan. Luckily, I hopped on this project because my full time job lead me to this builder who was in need of a pilot/videographer. So this video was a portfolio build and proving my worth to capture the final phases (or finished build) to then charge appropriately. By the time the project is finished. I plan on getting the inspire 2 (fingers crossed there are less issues than the mavic). And working with other videographers to create the two man operation. This way the the shots will be a lot smoother. My question is, what are the appropriate rates? I do work with a production team as well, however, I want a sure way to justify pricing when selling myself and my crew. This is my first few time getting into videography, photography charges much differently of course. Any thoughts? - Wash
  9. Hey there community, I have recently finished up a video project for a local builder. This footage is shown to potential buyers of the new residences being built, as well as, the local town. Using the DJI Phantom 3, it is hard to create smooth transitions while sweeping (and without using built in features) however with more practice, Ill be able to dial those errors in. Criticism is appreciated! Thanks, and enjoy. https://youtu.be/j_tkI2BfwDo - Wash
  10. Hey Alan, if possible, can you post some of the transmitters you would recommend again for the communicating with ATC? Thanks
  11. Funny, I am looking for the links now and can not find them myself. Hmmm... Ill get back to you as soon as I find them
  12. Good evening everyone, Does anyone have an info on International Drone Expo in LA this Demember? Is it worth going? What to expect? I wanted to attend Interdrone, however my schedule wouldn't allow me too. So this next expo may be the one I attend. I haven't been to a drone expo before so I do not know what to expect. Any info would be great, thanks. - Wash
  13. I definitely agree with that and I should have noted that. My understanding is being aggressive with any lipo batteries will cause damage over time with out a doubt. For that specific shoot I didn't have to rotate more than once and I did let it cool down before placing back on the charger. I do also check the cells within the DJI app to check in on the batteries. i have yet to look in depth at the manual for the P3 when it pertains to their batteries. Thank you for mentioning this because it is very important
  14. Heading to the site now! Update: Jeeez! Yup that was the case. I wonder why the Certificate numeber is pending however. hmmm
  15. I'm standing still as well. Waiting on the temp!
