If you find yourself hiring a drone photography company, it is important to identify first what to expect from these companies. Should you have an album by the end of the project? Does the package include soft copies of the images?
Will the photos be edited and processed? Drone services do not exactly come cheap though the final outputs should compel you to pay handsomely for the services. If the photographs would do their jobs—promote a business or capture a special moment—the services that produce them are invaluable and priceless.
Creative ideas and concepts
The first thing you need to do when hiring a drone operator is to meet the team who will conceptualize the idea for you. They should put the concepts and the ideas on a storyboard and this storyboard should guide them in producing a drone photography that speaks about the message of the business. You need to make sure that the team that will handle your project has a lot of creative juices in them.
They should have a lot of ideas on how to use drone photography to promote your products and services. For example, you have a real estate business. Your team should have an idea more than showing the whole property. They should be able to use drone photography to showcase the landscape of the property, as well as its surroundings (whether there are nearby malls, expressways, city centers, etc).
Grainy images are shitty images. No matter how much the post production team tries to tinker with it, grainy images will remain as low quality photos you couldn’t really use for promoting a product or a service. What you are looking for when hiring a drone photography company is the assurance of high-quality videos. This means that the company uses modern cameras and editing equipment to come up with an end-product that everyone in the team and client can be proud of.
Customer service and support
At the end of the day, it’s really about customer service and the kind of support you receive from the drone photographer. No matter how good a photographer is, if he is rude to the client, no one would want to work with him. Even his own team might turn their backs from him if he is being too difficult to work with. Investing in drone photography might be a little steep but if the service is great and the outputs exceptional, it should be worth it.
