As a photographer, I use many tools to bring me closer to the action and offer viewers unique angles.
Several years ago, I added a drone to my kit, which allows me to put my camera in places I couldn’t otherwise reach. Whether it’s directly above the scene of a fire, an environmental disaster like a sinkhole or open ocean, the drone expands my storytelling.
I fly a Mavic 2 Pro and I am a licensed Federal Aviation Authority Part 107 Unmanned Aircraft System remote pilot.
There is more to being a drone pilot than just buying a machine and flying in your backyard. It can be that simple, but most of us will need to understand some drone laws before we try to take to the sky.
