Shooting on land


Sony hybrid cameras offer imaging capabilities far superior to those of a smartphone. Professional equipment.

The secret lies in the size of the sensor: the image sensor is the eye of a digital camera. The larger it is, the better the photos. With a sensor 10 times larger than that of a smartphone, every aspect of the image is improved: pixel count, low-light sensitivity and dynamic range. For sharper photos, enlargements and prints.

Drones (unmanned aircraft)

Preparing an aerial service

European regulations on unmanned aircraft came into force on December 31, 2020, replacing national aviation safety regulations on these aircraft.

In June 2020, the European Commission published two regulations on unmanned aircraft (known as “UAS”):

  • Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/945 of March 12, 2019 on unmanned aircraft systems and third-country operators of unmanned aircraft systems;
  • Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 of May 24, 2019 on rules and procedures for the operation of unmanned aircraft.

Consult the DGAC website for current regulations:

Flying drones over public areas in built-up areas is prohibited for open category recreational drones as of 01/01/2021.

The French administration(DGAC) has provided some clarifications to differentiate a leisure activity (aeromodélisme), from a professional activity (activités particulières) with a drone, since its penultimate edition (August 9, 2016) of the Guide des activités particulières:

  • As long as the aim of the flight is not the pilot ‘s hobby (flying or taking pictures), it’s a “special activity” (professional) or an experiment (special case) that needs to be declared to the DGAC.

Professional aerial photography, or photography with a commercial purpose using unmanned remotely piloted aircraft (drones) falls within the scope of specific activities (aerial work), governed in particular by the two decrees of December 17, 2015. What’s more, aerial services with a drone don’t stop at taking off and landing.
Complying with regulations and draconian safety rules comes at a cost. This means a great deal of preparation time, prior to the mission: advice, expertise for a tailor-made service, study of aeronautical charts, weather forecasts and aeronautical information, scouting, risk analysis, choice of the best place to take off…

According to the flight scenario (S1 or S3) and the configuration of the site, plus administrative formalities (application for authorization to fly to the relevant prefecture and the DGAC if necessary), personnel costs related to ground security, follow-up of a protocol defined with the operator of a restricted area, occupation of the public domain…

During the mission, the telepilot has to mark out the exclusion zone for third parties to secure the site, carry out numerous checks before and after each flight, keep his logbook up to date, and record maintenance tasks in a maintenance logbook.

There are several advantages to hiring a professional drone pilot in Normandy, such as:

  1. Quality of footage: A professional drone pilot has a wealth of experience and technical know-how, ensuring optimum quality of the images and videos captured by the drone.

  2. Safety: Professional pilots are trained and certified to fly safely, minimizing the risk of accident or injury.

  3. Flexibility: Drones can reach hard-to-reach places, offering great flexibility for capturing images of landscapes, buildings or events.

  4. Compliance with regulations: Professional pilots are aware of the regulations in force for drone flights and ensure compliance with them to avoid any legal problems.

  5. Time and cost savings: Using a drone saves time and costs when taking pictures, compared with traditional methods such as scaffolding or helicopters.

By hiring a professional drone pilot in Normandy, you can be sure of obtaining top-quality images and videos, while complying with regulations and working in complete safety.
