So.... I've gone & bought my self a drone & I love it. I love it so much it's been 3 weeks since I've picked up my Nikon & taken a photo from the ground. This is something I have become extremely passionate about & I can see a big future in this industry.
There are new drone laws coming in on the 29th of September which allow people like me to sell the photos I take in the sky so long as some guidelines have been followed. Before this a week long course was mandatory to get a licence if you were to profit from flying a drone. While this is still necessary for larger drones above 2kgs I think it's a positive change, although I still think people flying these things should require some kind of training before flying near anybody, they can just be so dangerous in the hands of somebody inexperienced.
I will be sharing a lot more content now these laws have been introduced & regular (usually daily) updates on my instagram account https://instagram.com/p/BKsfpAtjv9n/ . I will still be getting my operators licence as I plan to buy a much larger drone for taking up an array of different camera equipment.
