Drone photography has opened up a whole new world of possibilities. With Javier Gómiz you will have all of these, and more, at your fingertips.
The first aerial photographs of Mallorca that began to be seen left more than one person speechless.
Usually the photographers who took them were pilots of aeroplanes and ultralights who, taking advantage of their condition, were able to take never-before-seen snapshots.
Today this privileged range has increased thanks to the advent of drones, although this profession requires both formal training and experience. In the about me section you can see that I have been an AESA certified drone operator since 2020, in addition to other accreditations.
Flying a drone safely
We already know that drones have a flight altitude limitation of approximately 120m or 400 feet, and a few other rules for safe flight.
A drone is nowadays defined by the acronym UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System), which can be translated as “unmanned aircraft“.
Flying a drone is a serious business, and we take it as such. When flying a drone we find occupying part of the airspace and it may be that our flight plan will match that of other aircraft of different weights and sizes, so we always need to ensure that the piloting of a drone takes place under safe conditions and a detailed and careful pre-flight organisation.
It may be that the area where you are requesting to fly is an area with limitations and restrictions on flying due to your location:
- Less than 8kms from an aerodrome or airport (CTR)
- In a protected natural area (ENP)
- In a Restricted Flight Photographic Flights (RVF) area
- Being in a zone already reserved by another pilot through a NOTAM.
In this case, it is necessary to start the procedure to apply for a permit to fly. I will take care of all that. Don’t worry.
Drone photography, panoramas and timelapses
The magnificent technology offered by professional drones allows me to offer you a series of services with spectacular finishes.
La fotografia aèria panoràmica amb dron és un dels punts forts de la tecnologia que porten els drones professionals ja que et faciliten la creació de fotografies panoràmiques aèries d’alta qualitat, de 180º i 360º, aquestes últimes també anomenades fotografies equirectangulars.
Aquestes són unes fotografies que després d’aplicar-li un programari especial crea una fotografia en 3D per la qual podem navegar i tenir una visió virtual de l’entorn on ens trobem des d’un punt fix. L’acció contrària, rotar o pivotar al voltant d’un motiu, una persona o un objecte seria possible gràcies a la fotogrametria amb drones.
Another possibility offered by drone photography is the creation of timelapses. A timelapse consists of the creation of videos from photographs taken in specific periods of time, they are in great demand, very eye-catching and widely used for advertising spots.
