Drone photography is able to capture images from a wide range of angles and heights. The advantage of the drone is that it can operate in locations where the van based mast cannot such as in the middle of a field and it can operate to a maximum height of 400ft compared to the masts 90ft.
However, there are strict rules about where the drone cannot fly, such as over or near a stadium full of people or near airports for example. Permissions have to be obtained before flying over or near a built up area.
The flexibility of the done is fabulous however there are strict guidelines about where and more importantly where it may not be flown. Having received a licence to operate from the CAA and having all the necessary insurance’s means that any flights carried out are in accordance with the current CAA rules and guidelines and industry best practice. The addition of a drone to the toolbox of Sky High Camera will enable the team to be able to reach locations which the normal van and mast system would sometimes struggle with. One of the beauties of drone photography is that it fills the important gap above 90ft that the mast reaches but lower than 2000ft that traditional aerial photography operates at and as a result can give stunning vistas of surrounding nearby amenities that mast photography might not adequately capture.
