What is Aerial Photography and Videography


Aerial photography/videography is the taking of still photographs and motion video of the ground from an elevated position. Some platforms used to take these images are aircraft, helicopters, blimps, elevated masts, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or the now industry preferred term remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS).

Aerial View Photography Caloundra uses RPAS, more commonly known as drones, in all it’s operations to capture high quality aerial photographs and video.

RPAS is the latest high tech technology for aerial photography and videography. From a ground station we have at our fingertips touch screen controls that operate the RPA and camera, as well as receive flight information about the aircraft. Live images are transmitted to the ground station so we can see exactly what footage is being taken. We therefore have total control which enables us to carry out the operation safely and to accurately capture the required footage for the best outcome for our customers. This technology provides for diverse range of uses and applications.

Uses for Aerial Photography and Videography

Aerial photos and video provide a dynamic elevated perspective. Oblique or vertical footage can be captured depending on the desired outcome.

Oblique photography: The point of interest in the image is seen at an angle to the ground and therefore there is a perceived depth of vision over a larger area than with a vertical image.

Vertical photography: The image is taken vertically, or directly above, the point of interest.

As the elevation range of our RPAS is 0-400ft (122m) we can focus on a specific point of interest or capture a large ground area. This innovative technology provides us with the flexibility to manoeuvre into virtually any position, within safe operational guidelines, to capture the best possible views, features and benefits of the point of interest or panorama. We can now fly and capture footage in places where aircraft and helicopters are unable to go.

Applications for aerial photography and videography using RPAS include:

  • Residential and Commercial Real Estate
  • Business Sales
  • Construction
    • Initial Site Inspections
    • Feasibility Studies and Town Planning Submissions
    • Progress Reports
    • Asset Management and Dispute Resolution
