VTOL Microdrones are far more convenient than conventional helicopters for many everyday commercial applications – and cost far less to run, of course. The Israel Government recently approved their use for commercial and civilian purposes. Microdrones can photograph from any altitude in any environment, including densely constructed urban areas, open spaces and more, maneuvering effortlessly around pylons and under power lines. They offer a wide variety of options for professional photography, many of which had been virtually impossible to achieve until now.

Microdrones can be used to photograph architectural and construction sites, landscapes, nature scenes, sporting events, public gatherings, archæological artifacts, agriculture, tourist attractions and the like, opening new vistas in advertising, documentation and many other fields.

About myself:
I am a professional still photographer who has accumulated vast experience working with newspapers, agencies and major organizations. My photographs have been published in National Geographic, Time Magazine, The New York Times and various Israeli periodicals, including Yedioth Ahronoth, Haaretz and others. We will visit your site with the VTOL Microdrone and photograph whatever you may require at the precise altitudes and angles you specify.
