Q: What about my wedding?
A: I know your wedding is very important to you. And 99% of the people I talk to are looking for a “wedding photographer”. And to be honest while I can certainly frame up the appropriate shots, my best work is candid. I work in, and look for the moments in life that I can capture that I can have some connection with. Some weddings will have what is called a second photographer. This person is often brought in by the primary photographer to take pictures off center, or from a different angle. Sometimes the second photographer is cut loose to be semi candid in nature. In this capacity, we might have a connection. But if you are looking for a dedicated wedding photographer, I’m not the guy.
Why Use FAA Certified Pilots?
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifies individuals as remote pilots for the operation of remote aircraft. The certification is called a Remote Pilot Certificate and the process teaches the pilot the “rules of the air”. This certification covers a broad range of topics from understanding FAA controlled airspace and how to properly use it to the complexities of aviation weather and risk mitigation.
But if your question remains. Why should you hire a FCC Certified drone pilot? Consider these key issues:
Drones aren’t perfect machines and they do occasionally fall from the sky due to equipment failure or even human error. When this happens there is always the possibility of property damage. Most FCC certified drone pilots carry liability insurance to protect not only themselves but their customers. Further more the pilot’s training provides them with the ability to continually provide risk mitigation for each and every flight. Safety First!
I carry per-operation liability insurance with the ability pre-plan each operation’s insurance coverage to the needs of the operation. The customer can be added to the policy as well as other named persons or organizations.
Fines for using non-licensed drone pilots can get as high as $27,000 in civil courts and as much as $250,000 in criminal proceedings. While using a FCC certified pilot with proper insurance removes this risk. Again this is an effect of risk management as the pilot has taken the time to study and become certified by the FAA and removed the potential fines from the table. But don’t take my word for it. Here is a short list of articles on FAA Fines.
