How Drone Photography is Helping Companies Better Market Their Brands

About the Program

Rise Above

Man must rise above the Earth, for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives. -Socrates

Thanks to rapid developments in technology, especially with smaller multicopter aircraft, drone videography is quickly becoming a cost-effective and accessible way to generate unique content.

Drones are changing the video and photography marketing industry by providing new ways for brands to tell stories about their products, service s, and events. While production crews rarely use drones exclusively for a project, drones help create compelling shots to compliment footage captured with traditional camera systems.

KJO Media’s TJ Kilian and Justin Stancil will walk you through what it takes to create captivating drone imagery. Armed with an extensive library of aerial footage and photographs, they will discuss how drones can enhance nearly any project, flying maneuvers that create the best visuals, the range of drones currently on the market, and the legal and safety aspects to consider before you take flight.

Key Takeaways Include

You will walk away from the lunch with an understanding of what these new tools are capable of and what they are not. You will also learn whether flying on your own is worth the investment of your time and money, as well as the types of questions should you be asking when looking for a vendor.
