Ed’s photography business combines live events, weddings and architecture but always keen to try new equipment, he added an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to his collection, adding a new dimension to his shots. 

Some images are about intimacy and are some staged but for the rest a UAV can add a sense of space, new angles and until now, impossible shots. 

During the live events and weddings he has used the UAV both indoors (where allowed!) and out. The stills and video have added to the occasion, covering the location and the whole audience. It has also captured quieter more personal interactions that have helped summarise the day. 

For his architectural work, the UAV has allowed 360 flybys of the buildings and getting shots of the more obvious hard to reach places. On top of that clever use of panning and zoom have created some emotive “movies” of each building to share with clients and more widely on social media. 

Always one to experiment Edd is looking to use a UAV to help with lighting for difficult subjects/situations and to create lighting effects. 

This story could be applied to both amateur and professional photographers. As the cost of a UAV has dropped, photographers have been some of the first to explore the capabilities.
