In addition to eliminating the need and prohibitive cost of using manned aircraft to capture aerial imagery, drone use for photography and cinematography also allows for remarkably nimble flying giving access to areas that were not possible before.

From hovering a few centimetres off the ground to over 100+ metres in the air with a single toggle, drones allow for photography of amazing flexibility and scope while for the cinematographer, the ability to to do long continuous shots, panning and framing a chosen subject the entire time.

The other obvious cost and logistics benefit is your team only needs to be small! No helicopters and ground crew. Just one UAV pilot, a camera operator and you’re up and running.

In short, drones have literally revolutionised each industry.

How drones are changing the ‘tography’ world.

A question
of cost

For the novice or professional cinematographer, hiring a professional drone and drone pilot will cost you less than 5k for full day. A helicopter, flight and ground crew - which may still provide inferior results - will cost you $50K. It’s a simple choice

Nimble as
she goes

Nothing offers the flexibility and manoeuvring ability of a purpose-equipped drone. From amazing photographic stills, to filming high-paced action, drones are beginning to become a dominant tool for both industries.
