What misconceptions would you like to see dispelled?
Many people treat drones like toys – but the truth is, before you fly you really need to learn how to operate it. You assume a responsibility for safety when you get a drone.
Are they easy to fly?
They’re really quite simple – not too different from a video game. For me, the hardest part was getting to grips with the aviation regulations. And even if you know them inside out, you still need to keep up-to-date with any changes or amendments.
How do you plan your shoots?
I’m always on the lookout for new places which is why when I travel I’ve always got the drone in my backpack!
What does a shoot involve?
Flying the drone is only about 50% of it all. Before, there’s all the planning and chasing permits,. Then, after a shoot, there’s all the processing that needs to be done.
What do you love about photographing in autumn?
The warmth of the colors – but in truth, everything looks better from above no matter what time of year it is!
