#Picsofthemonth: Working with Drones
Updated: Mar 15
Our photographer David and his drones are keeping up with every step of our progress on the job sites. Drones have become a game-changer in the construction industry for high-quality marketing photos and videos that monitor job site progression. David uses his drone at every site to capture spot-on before and afters and epic mid-air shots of our guys and machines in action.
In the last few years, drones have become a necessity in construction. At one time, the only way to achieve these kinds of shots would be with a helicopter. Drones have made this a much better option for anyone looking to show off their work and progression.
Having a 100ft view or more helps to highlight the quality work that we do at JC Property Professionals. We can show you the before, after and even the stuff happening during the process. The photos we picked this month are great examples of that.
When it comes to shooting with a drone all of the rules of photography still apply, but now you have a lot more room to work with. So do yourself a favor and find a good drone pilot to help show off your work, be that in construction or any other project.
A lot of people are unaware that in order to fly a drone commercially you need a licensed pilot. This requires a Part 107 license from the FAA. It is not recommended to try and use one for your business without this license because you may be fined if the FAA finds out! Complex photography drones are much more difficult to operate than a remote control helicopter, accidents can happen easily. Check out the video below to see what we're talking about...
