What is a drone?
Drones are small unmanned aerial machines made to do many types of tasks. From photography, video, search and rescue, they have come along way in how we have integrated them into our lives. With our lifestyles becoming more complex, it was just a matter of time before we needed to create tools that could keep up with the demand. Insert the drone.
Why do you need a drone?
For content creation, aerial drones are an amazing way to capture unique footage and photos. Many videographers use them to get high perspective shots with a more cinematic feel. Many camera manufacturers now create cameras and lenses that are specifically used on drones.
What can you do with a drone?
The best use of a drone is to capture footage where you could not normally go. For example, 100ft straight up in the air with a camera. How about across a large river or rocky mountain path? They pretty much allow you to push the limits of your video and photography skills.
The technical side of drones
Drones are a cool tool, but you may want to consider the technical side of owning a drone. First, consider all the federal regulations regarding drones and technical flight. Also, consider learning to fly and operate a drone safely in your area.

Things to consider before purchasing a drone
Learning to operate a drone legally and safely should be your number one priority. Once you’re done with startup learning, you can look forward to creating some beautiful content in unique ways. Drones are pretty much integrating into all aspects of our lives, so this is a great time to learn more about this automated unmanned aerial machine.
