Aerial Stills

May 02, 2017

I provide a low cost, safe alternative to drone photography known as "Aerial Stills", where I hoist high-res cameras up to 25 feet. No FAA license is required, I can shoot on windy days, there's no concern for air traffic clearance, noise, or special liability insurance, so this can be done anywhere, even where drones are not allowed. Here are a few examples, and how it's done:

The setup is shown below: a hefty-duty pod that can support gear up to 25 pounds. This allows me to raise a high-res camera to drone heights and control it remotely.

And here are some more examples:

Drones require special FAA licenses, and many insurance companies won't cover photographers who use drones due to the high incidence of crashes and damage to property. My Aerial Still alternative though is fully covered under my liability insurance, requires no FAA license, creates no noise, can be shot on windy days, and allows me to shoot at high resolution for high quality photos.

 

If you'd like to learn more about having me take some Aerial Stills for your property, give me a shout and let's talk about the no-drone-zone option.
