As the owner, I have been flying drones for about four years now. I am a software engineer by trade and am well versed in not only the technical aspects of flying, but also the mechanics that manufacture drones. As a hobbyist I have built three drones ground up along with the DJI equipment I fly and maintain. I take flying seriously although I very much enjoy the experience.
I have been flying professionally for approximately six months at this point. Most of my business is real estate related however I also have performed inspection work, construction updates as well as event. I am also well versed in the techniques of digitally editing both photography and video. I thoroughly enjoy finding inspiring outdoors to record and put together in collages of cinematic art. Mostly for my own enjoyment.
I am now digging into the mechanics of orthomosaic drone mapping as it has been requested by local agricultural firms. I have set up WebODM locally and am working through the process. I am also interested in creating 3d image mapping which I have also begun to test. Down the road I would be interested in heat maps for a multitude of purposes.
