I'm your drone pilot in Tasmania

I fly a DJI Mavic 3 Classic, which has a Hasselblad camera. The stability of this drone is remarkable and that reflects in silky smooth 4K footage. The lens is brilliant, and that comes from a professional photographer, not a drone toy-boy.

Tourism Photography by Drone

Drone photography can be an absolutely fabulous compliment to your video footage. Of course, if you are using print media, you will need some really good stills to sell your message too.

Tourism Video by Drone

Tourism Photography

Drone video is absolutely fantastic for promotion of tourist facilities! Have you noticed the volume of TV series and movies that are coming out with wonderful drone footage in them? The public is becoming attuned to it. Talk to me abut what we can do to promote your tourist attraction.

Business Promo Shorts by Drone

Ten Second Business Promotion

Drone video shorts are a wonderful source of footage for producing impactful business promos. I can produce 10 second, thirty second and sixty second versions of adverts tailored for different platforms to help you get maximum penetration for your advertising. It's about purposing footage for platforms and knowing what codecs and settings to use when you export the videos.

Architectural Photography by Drone

Drone photography is brilliant for community facilities, business premises, real estate and more. I(t is becoming a standard, but it takes a professional photographer who is also CASA licensed pilot to take a really good photograph for you and that person also has to know how to colour grade the photographs so they look really good and for for your purposes.

Planning Photography by Drone

Planning departments and grant submissions require quality photography as part of the application process. Drone photography is now a standard approach for getting the details you require into your submissions. No matter what your drone photography requirement for any planning or grant application is, I can can help you get detailed, quality photographs to assist your submission.

Insurance claim Photography by Drone

drone images for insurance claims
Much like planning departments and grant submissions, if you want to substantiate and maximise your insurance claim, it needs quality photography. Drone photography is now available for getting the details you require into your claim. Don't panic about substantiating the damage. I can get my drone at different angles to fully capture the damage using photographs and video.

Post-Production Services for Drone Footage

Putting it all together!

Being able to put it all together is a skill that takes time to learn. Coming out of a college or university with a smattering of projects under your arm doesn’t make you an expert or even a good creative. For business, you need a business mind that embraces Business Strategy and appropriate messaging. This means both the video and audio palette need to be set, specific scenes constructed from photography, video, sound and branding artefacts.

Camera Matching

Different cameras have their own interpretation of colour. This happens when a particular lens is mounted too. I have the ability to compare and adjust footage to normalise clips so they are comparable instead of different.

Color Grading

Color grading changes as-shot footage into something special. It can warm or cool colours, makiing it seem like the afternoon 'golden hour' or the 'blue-hour' that comes as the sun wanes. All good advertisements have colour grading applied.

Stabilisation

Wind effects stability for drones. Sometimes footage needs stabilising. I fortunately have the tools to do that well.

Video Editing tile

Object Lock

No drone camera operator is going to get it perfect. They are both flying an aircraft and shooting video. Many pilots have taken to flying drones, but they lack the artistic skills to create a good product. On the other hand, photographers and videographers have to learn to fly well and get a CASA licence. My point is that it's a complex operation! When we look at footage in post-production, sometimes an object of interest just is not quite right int he frame over some seconds. Being able to re-frame a photograph is easy. Re-framing footage is dynamic and much more difficult. I use Davinci Resolve Studio and have a hardware console which enables me to adjust footage to pin an object in location and eliminate what was movement, giving a comparable quality result to a hand held video camera.

Footage Matching

Most advertisements have multiple pieces of footage that are extracted from the as-shot video. These will normally be different in colour because of the angle of the sun, and change in light over time. Matching clips so the end product doesn't jar the viewer's mind with differences results in a harmonious set of key footage that is available to put together for your purposes.

Quality Sound

I studied at the School Of Audio Engineering back in the 80s, have been in recording studios, involved in an album and done lots of live mixing of bands, I love good sound, and that flows into my videos, voice-overs and interviews

Delivery

Good delivery involves knowing codecs, frame rates and compression, plus other factors that fit the platform you are delivering for. If a client is going to use footage on multiple platforms, I have the ability to deliver for each platform in a manner that will optimise video appearance or performance, or perform a fine balancing act between these demands.

  • $600 for 4 hours
  • $900 or 6 hours

Colour grading and video production cost depends on how long and complex the video (effects, transitions, titles etc). My preference is to do colour grading at minimum to provide a really nice product.
