    Hey Guys

    With CASA looking to relax rules around drone operation for commercial, I'm looking to start putting together a portfolio of pictures for an eventual move into the industry. I have been flying drones for over a year now for recreation and my partner is an photographer and editor. It seems that with the overheads shrinking, this opportunity is more realistic for the solo operator.

    Long story short, I am looking to do some free work for anyone willing to give me a chance to photograph their properties. All I ask in return is that you give us some constructive criticism and a little patience as I dodge trees and swear at my remote control. I would also need permission to use the pics taken in a public portfolio.

    Once I have some hours under my belt, I can review my results and work out if its viable to take the next steps.

    If your keen, I'm keen. :p

    Hi Liam

    We recently bought a 1925 character home by the beach and potentially looking at doing an upstairs extension if it gives sea views.

    Do you think you'd be able to get the drone up to take a look at the roof and also out to the beach to see if views are unobstructed?

    Currently flying a Phantom 4, I can precisely pinpoint the height of the drone within a foot of accuracy thanks to GPS and Sonar Tech.

    It would be my pleasure DT, we might sneak in some birds-eye pics encase you need them for planning down the line rather then rely on google maps.
