Take Adventure to New Heights with Drone Photography



Interested in taking your photography skills to new heights? How about a bird's eye view from the sky? Adventure photography can reach a whole new level with the help of drones!

Do you need a license to fly a drone?

According to the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), you do not need to obtain a remote pilot's license under the following conditions as sited by the FAA:

  • you are flying the drone purely as a hobby and for solely recreational reasons
  • You follow the guidelines set forth by your local community
  • You keep your drone within visual line-of-sight
  • Yield to any and all manned aircraft
  • Remain at least five miles away form airports and air traffic control towers
  • Your drone must not weigh more than 55 pounds

Why is a drone useful for adventure photography? 

Seeing your surroundings from above gives you a whole new perspective! Drones give you the ability to span a large distance quickly and smoothly. This can be extremely beneficial when capturing landscapes on film from a whole new view. When the earth is seen from above, it gives you a completely different take on depth and perception. You don't have to spend a pretty penny either. Drones are available for beginners to experts, and anyone can give it a try!
