- July 27, 2019
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Drone photography has quickly grown in popularity due to the remarkable imagery that can be captured by aerial robotics. Industry professionals including real estate agents, farmers and law enforcement have readily adopted the technology to meet their needs. But learning how to control these little gadgets and properly implement the technology can be difficult to master.
Join professional photographer and seasoned drone pilot Timothy Baur in a new-workshop designed to take your photography to new heights – literally! A combination of lecture, demonstration, and a field trip session, this class will teach you the basic skills needed for taking and processing still photos with a drone. We’ll talk about the best tools for beginners and see demonstrations of the sophisticated gear used by the most in-demand professional photographers and filmmakers. Students will learn essential skills for controlling a drone – basic flight controls, necessary equipment for successful shooting, planning and lining up the perfect shots, flight prep and safety, waypoint navigation and more. There will also be brief discussion on production and post-production techniques unique and essential to aerial photography.
Students are not required to have a drone or any experience flying a drone to take this class. Please come to class with an open mind, a notepad, and a willingness to try something new.
Timothy Baur’s (http://baurfilms.com/) love of photography and film started as a teenager in Austin, Minnesota with a 35mm Vivitar camera and his passion for capturing images continues to this day. After soloing in a Cessna 182 at the age of 16, Tim’s passion for flight took root. He has been flying RC planes and helicopters since 1983. By 1990 he had his certified private pilot’s license followed by his commercial license in 1992. He flies both fixed wing and helicopters along with paramotoring. In addition, he is a seasoned drone pilot and camera operator. All these skills and talents have culminated into Tim’s ability to get shots on the ground or in the air.
