Could drone photography be the new way to capture photographs? It certainly seems that way. Drone photography has offered unprecedented and unrivaled access. The multimedia campaign following drone photography has been a major boost for the options versatility and flexibility. In all, drone photography is perfectly capable of being the next big innovation in the industry, but is it already there now?
A few obstacles are seeking to muddy the waters and make drone photography a small niche within the industry. Some of these issues are somewhat fair. For one, drone photography requires some regulation. This includes insurance details that need to be managed prior to any shooting. Some venues do not want drone photography in the area, and some will seek some compensation. There is also the matter of copyright. Take, for example, a large-scale shoot that photographs private homes or businesses along the way. These can be incorporated in the shot, unintentionally, and further seek to muddy the situation if these photos are sold for profit.
There is also the need for good old-fashioned insurance coverage. A drone can cause distress (which is its own problem). A drone can also crash into a person or wall just as easily. Unmanned aerial vehicle insurance is a thing, and it applies to drones. The owner of the drone can actually be a liable to the venue and the people. Venues will not allow for drone coverage without this applicable insurance, as it remains a serious knock against their policy.
Aspiring Gentleman has found a way to authorize aerial drone photography while jumping right over the many obstacles. Wedding photography has been wonderfully favorable in this area due to the scale and the grandness of the shots. It is a match made in heaven, in other words. Grand scale epics can be made by sweeping drones that float over the wedding reception. The grandiose nature of the photos blends in elegantly with the ambiance found in a wedding. Some areas of photography do not fare as well. It may have more to do with the venue in which the photographs are being taken, as opposed to the technology itself.
