Using Drones for Aerial Photography

Drones are not allowed in national parks or national monuments.
We have added them in their own state-by-state galleries at the
Non-Drone Gallery

These videos are summaries of my drone adventures during the years 2015 - 2022. I traveled with the drones in twelve states, and display some of the standout sites in these YouTube videos. During the Dawn of Drones for public use, I gradually moved up to better, stronger drones, and hope you enjoy the results!!!

My U. S. Travel History Over The Past Twenty Years!

I’ve had some questions lately from friends who have watched me drive all over the western United States for two decades.

The red dots on this map are towns in which I have stayed in motels for a week to ten days—and I’ve been to a number of the towns two or three times.

Each day I travel out in a different direction, to photograph or fly attractions I had discovered using map apps. The circles then represent the area I covered from each town.

All of that is a long way of saying that I am having a hard time finding first-class attractions I haven’t already filmed…

As soon as Carl saw drones becoming available to the public in February of 2014, he realized they could be an important new way to explore and present large scenic imagery, including many parks he had already visited with his cameras.

In those early days, the drones were small, rudimentary and suited only for backyard flyers and do-it-yourself geeks. They were also very light and subject to being carried away by wind.

With the advent of the Phantom 2 Vision+ in February of 2014, the drones became a bit stronger and heavier, and the future beckoned. Carl obtained his Phantom in July 2014 after a few weeks of flying smaller quadricopters to learn flight skills.

Learning to use an aerial platform for photography is a process, not an event—much as underwater photography is. There is a learning curve of some steepness to ascend. You pay for your mistakes. Dearly. In my earlier career it was flooded cameras, now it is the occasional drone crash.

After the intervening years of rapidly-improving technology, he now uses the DJI Inspire Pro, at nine pounds a much heavier and more stable drone. Over those years he has built a large library of aerial videos, which now cover twelve states. The aerial material will complement his libraries.
