Drone Photo-Video

Hatley Castle, Victoria, Canada 2013 – close range aerial photo.

 

 

 

 

 

For quite a few years now I do work with drones, offering Close-Range Aerial Photography and Video. Imagine showing your event, residence  or attraction,  through a bird’s eye! 

Secret Bay Eco-resort, Dominica. Aerial drone photos show best this place’s unique location.

 

 

 

The traditional aerial photography and filming (with helicopters) not only costs a fortune (making it out of range for almost everyone), but is limitedin a way of distance. A drone changes it totally allowing for a very close-range flying and low cost. Therefore drones take aerial imaging by storm.We see, however, a popular misunderstanding about drone photography and video. Actually, it is similar to misunderstanding of pro photography in general. The flood of consumer drones creates a mirage of drone photography being so easy. It must be easy, yes? Easy to take snapshots and selfies, yes – like with cell phone photography. But is a pro-quality work easy?

Well – please check the page “Why My Services” if you want my opinion. Same as with regular photography or video – serious experience (not just flying drones, but also advanced knowledge of photography, composition, lighting, and so on) makes all the difference between a fine image and a snapshot – drone or no drone.  Thank you.

Yes, it is a drone photo. Just a bit higher than you could photograph from ground, it shows the Syndicate Falls in Dominica from a very favourable angle. Manual settings of camera allowed for a more artistic image. Hope you like this one!

Using newest technologies and pro drones I can film or photograph from high in the sky or from a close distance, almost touching tops of trees – or even fly between them! That results in a totally new, very “immersive” experience. Dominica is not easy for flying – mountanious terrain and dense forest are sometimes tough – butresults can be spectacular.

Have a look at this 1 minute sample of my drone flying throughout tropical forest.
If a picture is worth a thousand words – drone footage is simply priceless! It adds a very high impact to any web site, video presentation, a movie or printed photos.

Don’t take my word for it. Please have a look at these  short clips, and think what this can do to your promotion or marketing!

Please see this recent (2018) short video from Dominica, Eastern Caribbean. It incorporates several drone sequences – both close range and high in the sky. It also shows my flying through a dense forest which is a bit of my specialty I enjoy. A butter smooth drone flying between trees. This short video also shows my time lapse and other footage.

 

 

This short promotional flick for a new resort in Grenada has plenty of drone footage.

 

And below you can see beautiful Abkhazi Gardens in Victoria, BC, Canada – also from aerial view 2013  (old drone with GoPro camera)

And another example – this one from 2015, Dominica, Eastern Caribbean.
It is a mixed footage from hand-held camera and from a drone camera.

And one more from Dominica – Snorkeling trip by boat, and sailing at sunset.
This one has clips from a drone, and also from hand-held camera (2015).

 Keep in mind these clips may be shown in  low resolution, depending on your internet connection. I am currently capable of taking hi-res photos and aerial videos in 4K.
If you think aerial video or photography can enhance your project, simply get in touch! I love what I do and will be happy to discuss your project with you.  I offer drone photography and video in Dominica and other Caribbean islands. Cheers!
