Ask Denise: My Personal Aerial Drone?

Denise Lones

Q:  Denise, what would you think if I bought my own drone for aerial home photography?

A: While I applaud that you want to do something unique and special for your listings, but unless you have the special skills and training not only to take professional property photography, but also to operate a drone safely and legally, I would suggest you pass on this idea. You will likely have a photographer in your area who is skilled in taking this kind of aerial photography and it might be a better idea to hire them to take the photos.

Additionally, while rules for operating a drone have been established for now, there may be additional changes that come down the legal channels which would make operating it a challenge.

So, my ultimate advice here is to tread lightly and to consider using a professional instead – unless you receive the training and have the professional photography or video experience.
