What are the benefits of aerial photography for businesses?

As a aerial photography company, Sky Snap can provide customers with drones and UAV pilots for a number of applications that drones bring unique benefits in terms of cost, safety and time saved, when compared to traditional methods.

Here are some examples of applications where Sky Snap’s services can make a difference:

TV and Filmmakers

Watch any kind of live TV show these days and you’ll probably catch a few shots where the camera seems to fly back and away from the host revealing a larger scene, and you’re pretty much guaranteed that’s a shot done with a drone – the cost and safety issues alone mean that things which would have been limited to helicopter photography are gone thanks to lightweight drones outfitted with high definition cameras.

Real Estate

The real estate market was one of the first businesses, along with the film and TV, to recognize the potential for drones. Almost overnight, drones made aerial photography available at a cost and quality unheard of ten years ago. For prospective buyers, an aerial view of a property is the best way to show the true dimensions of a location. Companies such as Sky Snap provide this as a service too if you don’t have a trained operator available or wish to purchase a drone of your own.

Resorts

Like the real estate business, Resorts can use drone photography and video to give potential visitors an appreciation of your venue, after all one of the first thing which a visitor check out on a resort site is its pictures. Photos can provide a more engaging view of a resorts layout, gold courses, beaches and other highlights of the venue.

Other industries are finding out drones can be used for more than just taking spectacular aerial shots.

Aerial Surveying is finding a growing market in inspecting wind turbines

Traditionally the wind-energy industry has relied on doing manual turbine inspections with service people climbing up the towers; at 65 metres or more (about a 20 story apartment) for a large one, it’s potentially a dangerous situation, and one that has to be done regularly, maybe on dozens of wind turbine on a wind farm. It then often takes several hours for staff technicians to individually climb and inspect each turbine tower.

Another method sometimes used is to photograph the wind turbine from the ground at every angle possible, but this has a lot of obvious disadvantages.

Drones can be operated from the ground and provide high-definition video footage or photographs of the turbine under inspection, including getting valuable footage of any damage done to the turbine’s blade tips – some of the most difficult and dangerous parts of the turbine to inspect manually. Using a drone, the remote-control operator and surveyors on the ground can capture every viewing angle within only 30 minutes Once a problem is identified, only then do technicians need to climb a turbine tower, reducing time (and money) spent on needless climbs and employee safety.

As a Canadian Aerial Mapping Service company, Sky Snap can handle jobs such as this or provide training to operators.

Construction Applications

Like aerial surveying and mapping, drones have unique abilities to provide aerial photography of building under construction. Whether it’s providing inspections of areas that are hard, and/or potentially dangerous to access, or to provide an overview of progress to stakeholders, a drone, such as the types Sky Snap provides make a perfect tool.Sky Snap offers Aerial Surveying Services in Canada that is perfect for this application.

Marketing and Branding
