While I am awaiting my PFAW, obviously trying to get foot in the doors of places is important. It is becoming a saturated market, but I am a photographer who has become a UAV pilot, and with my background and photography contacts over the years, this has really helped. Luckily I had the opportunity to get some aerial photos and footage of a stunning little estate in Blackboys, Sussex. I know the owners and they were looking to change estate agents to help sell their property. They asked if I wouldn`t mind getting some aerial photos of their property to which I obliged, and being that there are 100acres of land to play around with, its was a great playground to test out the Inspire.
I have also created a little video as well which I will post later on, but for now I am really happy that 2 of my images were used in the brochure for the property. This was non paid work sadly, but something that looks good on my portfolio.
This is also another reason why I have moved to the Inspire, the ability to change from video to photo whilst in the air is essential for the work I will be doing. This is just not posssible with a rig like the s900 and Gh4. (not yet anyway)
