  1. I don't do many property videos. I recently agreed to shoot one for a neighbor. I think its a fascinating business and would be really challenging to do it well, profitably. I'm not sure I could accomplish that. I'm posting these for several reasons, I'm proud of the work we do, I'm interested in what others think, and probably most importantly I'd like to start a thread where people don't simply criticize but share their experiences so that as a community we can figure out better, more economical ways to produce this sort of video. There more to this challenge than just the drone, photography, cinematography, color correcting, editing and delivering. So there's ample opportunity to discuss technique etc.. This is the latest, this house hasn't been lived in for quite some time and it is mostly empty, so it was a challenge to make it look interesting. Because I did this for a friend, I experimented a bit with different camera's and drones. For the aerial I used a GH4, Autel and a MAVIC. I'll leave it to you to see if you can determine which is which. On the ground I used a Canon 5D3 and Panasonic GH4. This was my sisters house from four years ago. This is my first property video. What started me thinking about this thread was this: https://platinumhd.tv/?c=aa5b43e44f If your into producing property videos you should really check out their Showcase, they do some amazing property videos. Also. here's an interesting Blog/resource for photographers trying to make a go of producing property videos: http://photographyforrealestate.net/ Hopefully those interested in learning and sharing ideas how to build a business in real estate will provide feedback and insights on how your doing. Also, I don't produce property videos for a living. Occasionally I have the opportunity to shoot them and thought I would share my thoughts and experience. I have no agenda, I'm not selling these properties or anything else. If people want to talk honestly about what works, what doesn't and what can be improved then lets make this a thread for that kind of discussion.
  2. Any suggestions, on what people are charging for their services. I have everything in place, but that is the one thing i have not figured out. Thanks
  3. I got an email from one of our students. Hey Alan! Just wanted to share some information with you! I was working in Marble Colorado filming a property with my drone. Everything went very well. I drove into the little town to eat lunch and had a conversation with a Local shop owner. They asked what brought me to town and I shared with them my drone services. The local shop owner had no problem with my services however they warned me that drones will be shot down in Marble Colorado by local land owners. I tried to explain to her that shooting a drone was illegal, she argued that it wasn't illegal and said it was a legal in the state of colorado to shoot a drone operating over private property. This concerned me GREATLY! How can we keep ourselves safe as drone pilots in remote areas where people are more then willing to shoot your drone out of the sky??? Im not sure I want to work in Marble again after this discussion I had. So there's two questions here: Is it legal to shoot down a drone? How can we keep ourselves safe as drone pilots / handle conversations like this? What do you think? (cc @Av8Chuck, @Steve Bennett, @Dave Pitman, @R Martin, @Ed O'Grady)
  4. Hi all, I just got this email from one of our https://dronepilotgroundschool.com students: Here was my response back to him, and curious how other pilots in this forum choose to weigh in. --- Hi there, both great models! "Worth it" is highly dependant on you and your goals as a 'dronepreneur' Some quick thoughts: How will you ever know without trying? Both models are perfectly suitable tools for taking high-quality aerial photos / video. I know pros who still use the Phantom 3, which isn't as strong of a camera or sensor set as your two options right now. The magic isn't in the camera itself, but the post-production...see the latest videos in this thread and feel free to scroll back a few pages to see earlier additions. Some great professional real estate marketers sharing their videos! It's a very consultative sales process — you're going to have to hustle and grind and keep building out your list of target clients and proactively reaching out to them to better understand what kind of service delivery (pricing, packaging, turnaround time, etc.) you feel comfortable with. It's a young industry. There's a TON of opportunity out there, but it's not easy money by any means. Building any kind of service-based business is really tough. Hope that helps!
  5. I'm researching where to list my information to get more drone jobs and am wondering which drone apps/directories bring you new business? I found Alan's article from a few years ago on directories, but I'd like to ask which ones actually get you business? Thanks in advance. Joey
  6. I would like to hear what other communities throughout the country are doing to integrate UAV operations in to their planning, exercises, training, and response. I am wanting to discuss agency policies, plans and procedures as well best practices. As a side bar the sharing of contact info to share additional information would also be encouraged within this conversation.
  7. I'm just getting my business up and running (Grandview Drone Photography) and was concerned that I would have to buy hour by hour insurance until I had logged 50 to 100 hours flying time to get an annual policy. Just for the heck of it I sent a quote request to BWI --and was pleasantly surprised to get an offer, even though I only have about 36 hours of flying time. It's for an annual policy with $1,000,000 liability as well as coverage for the value of my drone. At any rate, I just thought I'd pass that info along.
  8. Hi Everyone, In the effort to keep the spammers at bay, I'd like to suggest, if possible, to click the "Report post" button next to the spammers name. This will send an email notice to the admins/moderators of the forum who can limit the activity or ban the individual if needed. Thanks!
