The astonishing proliferation of drones in recent years has allowed photographers to see the world from an entirely new vantage point. This weekend workshop will help you explore
aerial photography’s creative possibilities and its potential to be a tool of self-expression and artistic purpose. At the same time, you’ll learn drone basics, including safety procedures, flying techniques, controller and camera settings.
The workshop will include outdoor, supervised flight time in addition to classroom time. Bring a drone (with a mounted camera), if you have one.
If you do not have access to a drone, you will still be able to take the workshop and try your hand using the instructor’s drone.
