Before video drone imagery was popular, they were popular for aerial photography. Even today, the shots you can achieve with a drone are spectacular.

Perhaps you want to explore drone photography in nature. Flying a drone is oftentimes less intrusive to wild animals than a human photographer. They treat it more like a bird or a part of their habitat. If they do notice it, then they’re looking right at the camera while you snap photos, which also makes amazing pictures.

Don’t Break the Law

When you order your drone, you’ll likely receive a set of instructions about how you may use them. Certain areas are controlled airspace, like an airport or a military base. You cannot interfere with these existing airplanes and operations.

There are other types of laws, too, regarding privacy. You shouldn’t use your drone to spy on anyone or take footage of emergencies or large groups of people for safety.

If your drone is over 250 grams it must be registered. Canadian Aviation Regulations state you must also have a drone pilot certificate.

Software now exists for programming many drones flying together. That means there are endless possibilities for drone stunts.

More and more companies and even nations are going with aerial stunts and light shows like this Hogmanay celebration drone show in Scotland. These are replacing fireworks as entertainment.
