A Picture is worth a Thousand Words
Florida Keys Iconic Film Photo Writing
When the cameras took off in 2016 our pilot and creative director got certified through the FAA. Here are some of the films, projects in real estate, events, wedding, and more. Famous for our written and story telling talent we’re open to creative collaborations of all sizes and shapes.
Sure, the full-wide image can be pretty big. But sometimes the image is worth it.
Florida Keys Aerial Photography is so effective at delivering your real estate listings to every social media outlet, even printed. We love beautifully balanced photographs, you love the impact they have on your clients and peers.
Florida Keys aerial photography sends a really gentle but powerful message to your audience. Catching the sun through the trees as it sets and casts gentle shadows on the water around a house is just dreamy. Catching the sun as it comes up is even dreamier. We love Florida Keys aerial photography, as well as traditional photography for Real Estate.
Our Florida Keys Real Estate Photography and Florida Keys aerial photography skills have been brightened and honed on many continents in Europe and in many states around the USA. But the sunny ocean horizons, sandy beaches, elegant Florida Keys resort lifestyle just beats it all.
Clearing the set for successful Florida Keys Aerial Photography
When you realize you’re in need of aerial photography the first thing to do is clear the set. What does that mean? Ideal Florida Keys aerial photography takes place on a sunny day with just a few tiny clouds, with little to no wind, no cars parked on the street, all the power lines and poles have been removed, the tree branches cut back and the house freshly painted, including a new roof.
Just kidding. Well. Not really. But those are the basics. When a 360 pan of the home requires we need to fly the drone around the house with a 10-20 foot clearance. It would be nice to remove the trees, power lines and sail boat stanchions. Many homes in the Florida Keys are on fairly small lots 50 x 100 with mangroves, buttonwoods, sail boats and power lines surrounding them.
Well, when you are selling a home or promoting a beautiful boat, or a car, the background is really important. Clear off all the surfaces, remove any kind of branding you aren’t officially allowed to display, for realtors this is especially important, the listings typically have to be neutral. So no signage.
Plan A PLan B Plan C
When we set up an aerial photo shoot it’s always better for your audience to see the home without cars, trash cans, recycle bins and general clutter. It’s been our experience that a few white clouds actually make the scene even more dramatic, so absolutely clear blue sky isn’t essential. And even better a slightly overcast grey sky brings out the details, it can really flatten out the shadows nicely and create that dreamy even look. It’s a simple step to add in light in our post-production work flow.
Getting it staged in time for our aerial photography to take place is a vital step. Planning is required. Preparing the home and the area around it as much as possible impacts all the other elements we’ve spent so long working on: batteries, sd cards, scheduling the shoot around high winds and sunny days, permits to fly. With a plan A, plan b, plan c it ensures all the pre-planning doesn’t go to waste.
Best bet is to schedule the aerial photography with at least a month to spare. And three back up plans. Then run through our handy Florida Keys Drone Pros aerial photography checklist (coming very soon as a film and downloadable checklist and printable) of preparations for the shoot.
Aerial Photography and Professional Photographic Production are both creative aspects of the work we love to do
We know everyone remembers the time they turned up to the party without a present. Well, we like to avoid errors. We like turning up to your real estate listing with the present, the batteries, the sd cards, the insurance, the license. We are local to the entire 200 miles of this Florida Keys we don’t charge more for a shoot in Key West than we charge for Key Largo. We are here, we live here, it’s our community.
Don’t forget Florida Keys aerial photography is something we love to do. Passionately. It is a pleasure but it is costly. We charge well for the work we produce, so we expect great results. If we don’t get them the first time we go back and do it until we do. Following a checklist can help attain the goals of perfect aerial photography. It helps us get perfect results the first time.
We also love making photographs of sporting events, weddings, concerts, motorcycle and car commercials, fashion shoots and family adventure photography. There isn’t much we cannot photograph with our drone, so let us answer your questions.
