Top Drone Photographers related questions

What does a drone photographer do?

Drone photographers fly drones above a location and capture videos or still photos of events, weddings, properties, construction sites, and/or attractions.

Why work with a drone photographer instead of hiring a regular photographer?

A drone photographer can help you stand out, since birds eye view photos are still quite a novelty for most people. Aerial photography can also capture a broader view, which is ideal for big landscapes, events, and large crowds of people.

What skills does an aerial photographer have?

Aerial photographers’ skills include drone piloting, drone maintenance, photography, videography, and editing.

Does a drone pilot need any specific qualifications or licences?

Yes. To legally fly a drone or UAV in Australia for commercial purposes, your pilot will need a RePL (Remote Pilot Licence) issued by CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority).

Are there any laws that limit photos you can take with a drone?

Yes. Most of the laws limit flying distances and locations, and it’s also illegal to fly over and above people. Your photographer will be familiar with local laws and ensure they operate their drone within the law.

How much does it cost to hire a drone photographer?

Drone photographers usually cost between $105-$259 when you book a service through Airtasker. But your photographer may charge more or less than this, depending on the type of photos you need, the location, the level of editing, and the total time spent onsite.

What does an aerial drone photographer do?

Aerial photographers are hired for a range of jobs, but most gigs are either for events or marketing promotions. Here’s what you can expect from some of the most common services offered by drone photographers:

Wedding drone photographer

Wedding drone photographers will start by checking with the bride and groom to find out what kind of footage they want captured. They may capture photos of the bride and groom on a hill, video footage of the wedding ceremony from above, or photos of the entire wedding party and guests. At your wedding, your drone photographer will set up their drone and use their controller to fly above the action, capturing photos and/or video as they go. They’ll consider the weather and light when choosing angles and heights to take the best photos of your wedding. Your aerial photographer will use a first person view screen or goggles to monitor the footage while flying the drone to make sure they capture all the most important elements.

Event drone photographer

Weddings aren’t the only type of events that can benefit from a drone photographer. Many large outdoor events, festivals, and parties are captured from above. Drones are perfect for capturing the scale of the event, including all the people, stages, stalls, and attractions. Your photographer will use their controller to fly the drone above the event, capturing photos and/or video. They’ll use their first person view goggles or screen to check that their camera is capturing all the right shots. After they event, they’ll edit the footage and deliver a polished finished product, suitable to share on social media or in marketing promotions.

Real estate drone photographer

If you’ve got a house for sale, a real estate drone photographer can help capture unique images that truly show the scale and context of your property. They’ll use their drone and camera to zoom out and show the surrounding properties and landscape. Some real estate drone photographers are also hired to take still aerial photos that are used in planning. In some cases, developers work with aerial photographers to capture photos that show the construction progress and that key milestones have been met. After the photos have been captured, your photographer will carefully edit the footage so that it’s ready to be used in your marketing, listings, and planning processes.

Marketing campaigns

You can hire a drone photographer to help capture still photos or video footage that can be used in your marketing campaigns. They can get new and interesting angles on your store, event, location, products, or services. Aerial photos and videos are also ideal for tourism campaigns, especially in beautiful or interesting surroundings. Your photographer will set up their equipment and use the controller to fly the drone into the right position, before capturing your footage. They’ll edit the raw footage to produce a finished product, or hand this over to you for further editing.
