This adventure begins in the morning on location, where David will review the particulars of drone flying and photographing as well as rules, regulations and licensing requirements. Following the general introduction or a more advanced review, David will take you flying if preferred! The day will be presented in three parts: morning basic instruction and flight, picnic lunch, which will be provided for you, and more advanced flying and photography skills to get the most dynamic footage. You’ll close the day with a review and conversation with David. Following this day-long instruction, you will be ready to take on new challenges with your own drone or explore the drone market to see what you may want to purchase.
David Wong has been a licensed private pilot since 1968 and has flown many single-engine aircraft, from the Cessna 195 to his own Piper Cherokee aircraft. His love of flying and photography merged as an assistant co-pilot and photographer to a portrait photographer that crisscrossed the country doing portraiture photography for the Rockefellers and other well-known families. He once again merged his flying and photography interests when he bought his first drone several years ago as an entrée to drone photography. Today David flies as a licensed part 107 commercial drone pilot with one of the latest DJI drones, the Mavic 3. David has now integrated drone photography and video as a tool in his arsenal for his clients and photography.
