Introduction to Drone Pro Photography

I've put together this page to help visualize what is possible, highlighting some of the work I've been involved with.

The content on this page is best viewed on a computer or tablet to fully appreciate it!.

Fly-through videos of construction sites:

The video below consists of about 14 "waypoints" and 20 "markers" which I pre-programmed on my computer and uploaded to the drone. The waypoints and makers tell the drone where to fly and where to point its camera. I can replicate the same flight (and video), with the same views and camera angles, each week.  All I have to do is press "go" on the drone, and the drone will fly itself and recreate the same flight path, allowing you to keep track of your construction site from the same vantage points each time.

Construction 360 Panoramas

Best viewed full-screen. Spin the view around, have a look in all directions from inside the construction site.

Create 3d models of your construction site:

Use the 3D model to take measurements and to count items on site:

Construction Progress Slider

Drone images can be scheduled monthly, weekly, etc to track the progress of a construction site. The images can be displayed in a slider as shown below, or in a photo gallery shown below the slider. Move the slider left or right to see differences between the July 22 and August 4 images below:
