What Drones Can Do For You
Drones represent one of the most groundbreaking technological developments in photography and video. Drones have revolutionized the way we are able to see and experience the world. Aerial views used to be hard to access. The history of aerial photography is intertwined with flight itself. The very first aerial photograph was taken from a hot air balloon. Aerial views eventually become more common with the availability of helicopters. But helicopters are expensive, hard to maneuver in tight spaces, and potentially dangerous for photographers and videographers willing to point their cameras out their doors. This meant that any aerial photos or videos were still rare. Most of the time these aerial opportunities were reserved for sublime landscapes and generic city scapes. Now, with the popularity of drones, aerial photographs and videos are everywhere. Check out this list for just some of the benefits of drones for business. Drone accessibility has meant that aerial footage uses have multiplied exponentially. There are many ways your business can benefit from our drone expertise:

What it Means to Be a Professional Drone Pilot
Even though commercial drone’s have become easier to access, there are still many barriers that separate a professional from an amature. Professional drones are nothing like the drones you could find in the toy section at Target. Just like any other camera, there are different standards of equipment depending on what you are looking to document. Professional drone equipment is versatile and should only be used with proper training. You can browse for yourself here to get an idea of the abundance of drone types and accessories. On top of the research and training it takes to handle professional drone equipment, anybody wishing to pilot a drone has to get the proper certifications for their country and city. Depending on where you live, there are different licences required to fly a drone. Without these certifications, officials can impose heavy fines. In the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration requires a Remote Pilot Certification. Obtaining this certification includes registration of your drone and even a test. At Chicago Corporate Photography and Video, we take pride in being trained and certified to use the highest quality drones so that we can serve your business. There’s no need for you to have to know the technical aspects of flying a drone to capture footage, we have done that part for you! We will use our technical know-how and professional experience to deliver impressive aerial footage that works for whatever you need. Our clients are constantly satisfied with our high standard of work.
The Future of Drones
Drones were once only used by a small group of professionals as volatile and novel pieces of equipment. Now, industries everywhere are taking advantage of the services drone footage can provide. Many experts agree that drone use will continue growing. In an article written by the financial news giant, “Business Insider Intelligence predicts total global shipments to reach 2.4 million in 2023 – increasing at a 66.8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Drone growth will occur across the four main segments of the enterprise industry: Agriculture, construction and mining, insurance, and media and telecommunications.” These predictions mean that drone footage is only growing in demand. Industries that ignore the benefits of using drones are ultimately being left behind. Because of the diversity of its uses, this applies to any industry. Drones allow you to realize the scope of anything, and this is valuable to anybody trying to maintain a business. In an interview with HiFly Photography, Zainil Kadiwal and Ali Dhukka, co-founders of DroneForce Studios, conclude that drones facilitate the process of going from concept to reality. “With the ability to create high definition footage from any angle, and moving in any direction, drones offer marketing teams the opportunity to flawlessly transition from storyboard to final product.” More people and industries are noticing these capabilities and are willing to invest in high quality footage. In a new study entitled “Drone Service Market Application”, Market to Market Research Group found that “the drone services market is estimated at USD 4.4 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 63.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 55.9% from 2019 to 2025.” This study proves that more people have an appetite for aerial drone footage.
