finally getting round to doing something with all the images I took from the Outer Hebrides trip, thank goodness for a bit of time and rain to make me sit and sort them. This one Barra Island walking across to the Commonwealth Cemetary.
Anyway as for my good news first which as some of you are aware i took my CAA permission to fly unmanned aircraft (drones) to most of you but essentially a quadcopter less than 20kg, I passed with a mark of 95, still don’t know quite how I managed it but hey I’ll take it and will be very happy with it.
Part of the future of my business will be aerial footage, I won’t go too much into it but a smidgen of it is wedding , surveying, estate agency and sports to name a few, probably about another 10 things but that will come later as well as my own footage and stills to give a new twist to my work.
As more and more people take to the skies with unmanned aircraft I’m sure it will become more legislative to have a license of some kind in order to use on at all, the qualification I am in the process of assures clients primarily I’m a safe pair of hands and that I am insured against accidents and damage, we are seeing more in the news everyday about hobbyists accidents and near fatal collisions. The sooner the better the CAA legislate against this activity in areas where potentially accidents can have sever consequences the better.
Anyhow apart form my little rant I have thoroughly enjoyed my course, very expensive it was too but I’m sure this will be recouped in future work, I already have a few promises of work for my 2 DJI Inpire 1’s just in the process of insuring it all, again very expensive and time consuming.
Will catch up with more images later when time permits.
