*Certain conditions and circumstances may prevent us from conducting Drone Operations. We will notify our Clients of these conditions very early in our Project Planning.
Our drones use a 12 megapixel camera that can deliver 4K still images and video.
No. Blue Dragon Marketing will take care of all the legal authorizations. Nothing other than making sure the property is “Photography Ready” is your responsibility. We take care of the rest.
Yes. But keep in mind that stills from video will be lower quality than our normal still images.
We produce around 2 minutes of high quality video; perfect for getting attention, sharing, and liking on Social Media, and enough to entice people to click through to a website.
Absolutely, YES. As you know the weather around here has the potential to change drastically day by day. This must be taken into consideration when planning a shoot and we both need to keep an eye on the weather. Any precipitation will cause us to immediately cancel a shoot – NO EXCEPTIONS. Also, wind is a major factor in our ability to fly safely and deliver high quality photography and video. We will not shoot in wind over 15 MPH.
Yes; however they must meet certain requirements, pass an FAA test, acquire a license from the FAA, fly under certain conditions, abide by many rules, and log all of their activity. They must also report any incidences to the FAA and it’s probably a good idea for the property owner to check their credentials and insurance coverage.
We would prefer if you (Our Client), the Homeowner, and Neighbors didn’t hang out to observe. There’s a few reasons; Safety, Distractions, Being in the shoot by accident, and Causing us to take more time than necessary. Once our work is done and we’re “off the clock”, then we would love to hang out chat!
