    Probably need to do interior images, right?

    After a long tenure in the RC hobby business, my wife took a new position at a community college in West Virginia prompting me to leave my job (it was time anyway) and the move to our new location. But this has afforded me the opportunity to pursue a new career which I'm taking a stab in the...

    New Jersey Aerial Photography

    Really enjoyed real estate work a lot more than I thought. This realtor was friendly and really helped me stage the exterior of the home. I noticed realtors really like those high aerial views that show the entire property. New Jersey Aerial photography is a up and coming industry that is really...

    The BIGGEST Barrier to Real Estate Missions...

    The biggest barrier to flying real estate missions - your mileage may vary - has been that a FRACTION of REALTORS and agents and brokers realize they MUST use an FAA-Licensed pilot to capture their images and footage. I think the best thing any of us can do for each other and for the industry is...

    Calling all Airports!!!

    Hello everyone! I live in a small town in the Willamette valley of Oregon, and I have a job to shoot a real estate drone video with my Phantom 3. Trouble is, this house is in the center of town, within 5 miles of 3 different airports! Two are privately owned, and one is owned by the city, but...

    Guyton, Georgia A Look At Land

    Hi all, I need a good look at some land I just bought, site unseen! We live out west currently, but we've been looking for land for almost a year in the Effingham County area. We finally found a piece, put in and got our offer accepted. Now the real problem: we have differing reports from our...

    Property - Drone shots - UK

    Hi, I used to do stills photography for a local estate agent (realtor if you are across the pond :) ) and here in the UK a lot of contry-wide estate agents are paying to send their agents to go on a photography course and do the photography 'in-house'. I know speaking to some of them that they...

    Where the money at?

    Interesting article we read from UAV coach, recent study shows where the most money is being made in the industry. We recently spoke with some from Converge industries which stated that pilots were having the most difficulty with real estate jobs and therefore staying away from them. What do you...

    Caching multiple "map locations in Litchi

    First let me say I'm sorry if this post should go somewhere else. Background. I don't do a lot of flying for fun. I do real estate photography and, over a year ago, some of my clients starting asking if I was going to start offering aerials. So, I got into quads, went through several models...

    Got my first paying gig

    Some background info: I'm a high-level technical professional, but not a professional photographer. I've been droning for about 18 months now, and can fly my P3S and P3P fair-to-middlin' well. OTOH, I'be been editing with Photoshop and Premiere for at least 20 years, and I'm pretty decent at...

    Standard Real Estate Mapping

    I really am new at this so please be patient with me. I work for a real estate firm and will be doing drone shots of homes, land, commercial property and rentals. I am wanting to take shots of a piece of land that I don't know where the borders are, because it is full of trees, except if I go...

    East Providence, Rhode Island?

    Looking for info about shooting in the Phillipsdale Historic District. My cousin is in Real Estate development. May need some aerials of a new development in East RI. Has anyone shot in this area? I'd like the job myself - but as I am in Chicago I may not be able to offer rates they need. So if...

    DJI GS Pro 3D Mapping?

    Hi everyone, I'm going to be doing a job soon with my P4 where I am hoping to take photos of a house from different angles over the course of 30 weeks. I have just discovered the dji Ground Station Pro app for the iPad, and the 3D mapping tool seems very useful for the job. My two questions are...

    What must you AVOID for MLS real estate postings?

    This is real life . . . I took a video of a residence and was told by a realtor that they could not use the video for two reasons: one, there was a real estate sign visible, and two, there were vehicle license plates visible. Is this a general rule for all multiple listing service images? What...

    How did you get your first gig?

    Does anyone have any tips for getting started in real estate video/photo? I've been flying drones for a while and I work full time in video production and I'm interested in doing some real estate shoots. Any advice would be great. Thanks!

    Addicted to Aerial!

    Hey ya'll Daniel here from Houston, TX. Early this year I took an interest in aerial footage. Now I'm full blown ADDICTED! I've had the chance to fly the Phantom 4 several times and am saving for my own investment; maybe the P4 Pro. I'm interested in taking this amazing hobby to the next level...
