We have been working hard over the last nine months to obtain our commercial drone license with Transport Canada so we can offer aerial drone photography services to our clients. This past weekend we received our first official SFOC to fly at Genoa Bay, a tiny marina community that is hidden deep in the Cowichan Valley. The weather was picture-perfect, so to speak, and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time piloting our drone around capturing a few photographs and a bit of video.
One of the first things that strikes us while we are airborne capturing imagery is that the change in perspective is truly amazing. From an elevated perch, even if only elevated a small amount, the world takes on an entirely different look. Scale becomes immediately evident as the horizon tends to now reach towards infinity, and here on Vancouver Island this provides unparalleled vantages and vistas that showcase the incredible beauty of the region.
Homes perched on the shore have outstanding views as the seasons and weather are constantly changing, and water traffic makes it’s way to and fro busily. Those lucky enough to have personal pleasure craft take advantage of the incredible summer weather to enjoy the sunshine and warmth on the ocean, using the Genoa Bay marina as their home-base to a wide world of exploration.
The marina itself is quaint and intimate, providing a bit of respite from the day’s adventures as the cove provides cover from the open ocean. Sitting on your deck here would be an amazing thing to experience as the sounds of the water lap upon the shores, and the sides of the boats and float-homes that pepper the marina.
We put together a brief video presentation here that includes a selection of still photographs and a bit of video we captured during our inaugural flight. We are very excited to be able to include this service in our photography portfolio as we believe aerial imagery has many applications including tourism, advertising for businesses, inspection services and much more. If you or someone you know might have need for photography or video of this nature we offer free consultations and would love to hear from anyone interested. We can be reached easily via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us directly to schedule and appointment and discuss your specific needs at 250-510-7693.
