Today, we have a long and in-depth episode about the real estate market for you today. While it starts off with a question about drone pilots in real estate, we talk about some things you’ll want to know as you start shooting real estate properties.
We discuss whether or not you need photography and video skills to shoot drone footage for real estate and what options you have if you don’t. We also talk about how to market your drone services to real estate companies and how you can make yourself stand out as a pilot.
Fly safe everyone!
