Drone Photography and Waypoint Course 

Why do I need this course?:

With clients becoming more demanding of high quality imagery from drones in all photo shoots these days, the importance of getting the footage right first time, every time is critical to keep your client and get paid for the job.  It is no longer sufficient to just pop the drone up and get a shot or video for wow factor, without using honed skills or waypoints such as zip lines and points of interests, to name a few.  You also need to be able to provide post processing if you want a bigger slice of the action and have control over the results of your imagery.

How long is the course?

The course runs from 8.30am to 4.30pm for one day. 

This enables us to do theory, practical photography and post processing in one day.

  • Your Sub 2kg or sub 7kg drone, compatible with Litchi
  • Sufficent charged batteries for 4 flights
  • Your mobile device (Android or iOS) compatible as a screen for your drone and able to run the drones software and Litchi
