Drone Photography


Nov 1st,

9:00am — 12:00pm

Location: Sam Fox School

About The Workshop

Drone Photography will provide students with an introduction to the equipment, processes, and regulations of drone operations. The workshop will focus on using drones to capture still imagery, but will discuss and share examples of other operations performed with drones, such as: photogrammetry, aerial mapping, and video.

Cross Disciplinary Connections

Drones are an evolving technology that offer professionals in design and visual art fields new ways to produce maps, capture still and moving imagery, and interpret spaces. Students in a variety of fields -- architecture, visual arts, communication design, etc, --- may find utility in the drone capture medium.


During the workshop, participants will create, edit, and print a set of images taken with a drone.
