Good job, and great subject matter. I'm new to this myself, but one thing I have learned is to be careful with the slight left and right movements once you have decided on the subject matter of a scene. They are very distracting when viewing the final cut.
It is pretty safe everywhere. I would recommend to take Pink Jeep Tour. They will take you in the very wild places where you can fly, If you have $125,00 to spare I highly recommend 25min. helicopter tour. It is awesome place. I am going back there in few months.
Good Luck and if you have more question let me know
Thank You for the Info FlipFlap. I can't wait to get there. I am just starting in this world of Aerial photography and UAV flying. I have been looking at your video so I can mimick some of the shots that you took. Wish me luck.
