BenefitsDrones offer a unique perspective for aerial photography

Photography has come a long way since the days of the camera obscura. Indeed, modern photography has greatly benefitted from the many technological innovations that have been developed over the years. One notable innovation that has had a profound impact on photography and videography is drone technology. Aerial filming in London has changed the game as there is a slew of different ways to approach it, expanding what’s possible when it comes to photos and videos.

It’s understandable if you’re still on the fence when it comes to using this technology. If you need a little more convincing, then we’ve got just the thing for you. Here are the top reasons why you should be using aerial photography for your shoots.

Drones Offer a Unique Perspective

The photography and videography industry is one of the most competitive industries as we constantly need to be improving ourselves in order to maintain a steady stream of clients and projects that are cutting-edge. This is one of the most important benefits that come with aerial photography. Unlike normal photography, aerial photography allows us to take photos and videos of a multitude of different things from an entirely unique perspective.

Drones Are A Cost-Effective Alternative to More Expensive Equipment

Tools that allow you to shoot from the air, such as drones, give you a unique perspective on things. Before drones, the only option would be to get a crane or a helicopter. Both options are incredibly expensive. And while renting out a drone still costs money, it’s unquestionably the most cost-effective alternative for shoots that require aerial filming or photography. To add to this, you’ll have more attempts to get the perfect shot if you opt to use a drone, as you won’t have to worry about the helicopter’s fuel and the extortionate pilot costs. What’s more, we are able to present you with live shots from the ground whilst you look over our shoulders.

Drones Are A Safer Option

Aside from being cost-effective, drones and other tools also make things infinitely safer for all involved.  While the accident rate for helicopters is relatively low, there’s minimum risk involved if you opt to use our drones that make aerial photography possible. Instead of having to physically be high up, we can instead use drones to capture the images or footage that you need for your shoot.

Drones Help to Accommodate our Clients’ Needs

The requests that your average videographer or photographer get from clients are diverse. Some require minimal setups while others will be resource-intensive to pull off. By making use of aerial photography technology, we can accommodate more of our client’s needs. This is especially true for industries that require our skilful drone operators to really show off the scale and proportions of your subjects. Drones have been proving invaluable when it comes to the real estate industry as it allows us to take more complete photos and videos of homes and properties.
