Three UAE Instagram Photographers Taking the Art Form to New Heights

July 20th, 2019|

Shutterbugs with a keen photographic eye are using the contrasting UAE landscape to capture truly remarkable images – and thanks to the digital age we live in, anyone around the world can experience what Dubai has to offer. You only need to browse social media to discover how people in the UAE view and experience life. Generic images are still plentiful on the platform, but occasionally you’ll come across a profile that packs a true photographic wallop. Browse the leading image sharing site, Instagram, and you’ll soon discover profiles dedicated to seeking out and capturing truly spectacular UAE vistas. The more you browse Instagram profiles, the more you’ll discover the difference between those images that pique interest and those that hold interest. Whilst it’s true that several UAE-based Instagram accounts have uploaded Dubai aerial photography that’s worthy of a second look, very few truly capture the essence of the city-state in all its splendour. Interested in learning which Instagram accounts are taking photography to new heights? Check out the following users and be inspired by their creative vision. Username: @pixelville Followers: 108K With an impressive Instagram following, Jumana Jolie is one of the more popular Instagram photographers. Climbing to heights that would make mere mortals’ shudder and capturing images at angles that need nerves of steel, Jumana Jolie gives her followers a glimpse of the UAE that they’ve seldom – if ever seen before. Her dizzying array of Dubai aerial photography shots are even more impressive when you consider that Jamana freely admits that there is a level of fear when capturing bespoke images from high altitudes. However, with a background as a photojournalist, having worked for Reuters for seven years, controlling her trepidation and fear is just another aspect of the job for Jumana. The Lebanese Palestinian has ventured across the of the Middle East throughout her career. It is this experience taught Jumana that versatility is paramount. Moreover, Jumana believes that the secret to capturing spectacular images is determined by practice. With a meticulous ethos and an eye that clearly distinguishes between what you see and what the camera can capture, she is able to offer a perspective that few Instagrammers are able to match. Photographer: Debbie Fortes Username: @debbiefortes Followers: 53K Debbie consistently demonstrates an acute understanding of photographic composition and solid knowledge of Dubai’s skyline. Venturing to the unglamorous parts of Dubai, Debbie creates a distinctive identity to Dubai – one that is lesser-known on a global stage. The antithesis of what a drone company in Dubai would typically capture, Debbie’s street-level images offer a different perspective of the city-state, one that forces those places that one crosses many times, but seldom pays attention to. Old Dubai and Dubai Creek are given centre stage and appear exquisite, thanks to her talent. Architecture, urban landscapes and minimalism influence her style. Interesting lines, shadows, and structures are featured prominently in her portfolio. Textures and three-dimensional objects are also a big feature of her work, as is how residents [...]

Simple Tips the Best Drone Companies in Dubai Know that Will Enhance Your Drone Photography

July 20th, 2019|

In past blogs, we’ve written about the best cameras to mount on your drone, the best drones for aerial photography, how drone pilots can capture the best aerial shots at night, even top tips of how drone pilots can compose the best aerial shots when soaring above Dubai – or anywhere in the world. However, what we’ve never blogged about are the more generic, even simple tips that any drone pilot should know to capture that breath-taking sandscape or urban landscape. Now, before we start divulging what some may perceive as tricks of the trade, it’s important to remember one fact. The best drone companies in Dubai – like Sky Vision – offer unparalleled flying experience and expertise, combined with a knowledge of aerial photographic composition that is hard to match. What does this mean? Anyone intent on using drones to map an elevated area or create inspiring marketing material to grab customer attention should only consider hiring the professionals. If, however, you’re someone who is merely thinking of buying a drone and want to learn more about how you can evolve your skills, and hopefully capture an inspirational image or two yourself, keep reading – you’ll surely read something vital to your learning process. Keep Calm and Be Safe So, having unboxed your drone for the first time, most pilots can’t wait to take to the skies. Now, there’s nothing wrong with being exuberant, but you want to be safe. After all, fly your drone into a no-fly area and it may be confiscated. Plummet to the ground and you may find yourself disheartened, surveying the wreckage of your pride and joy. To fly drones safely, you’ll need to educate yourself beforehand. Aerial photography companies have undergone a wealth of training, know the legalities of drone flying like the back of their hand and have sound educational understanding of how to control their drone, sourced from experience, comprehensive training and passion. They haven’t taken a course or two, read the manual or merely Googled, ‘how to fly a drone.’ Drone companies must also have the requisite professional licence. This depth of education means that they know how to fly as safely and will remain calm if a flight’s circumstances changes in an instant. Drone companies know where to fly and where not to fly and have sound command of the camera. Additionally, something not to be discounted, is that seasoned drone companies understand how to operate the drone and the camera simultaneously and proficiently. This takes skill and a whole lot of practice. Our tip? Concentrate on flying and manoeuvring the drone over short distances before thinking of taking to the skies with a camera equipped. Be Mindful of What’s Around You There are many attributes that contribute towards taking that stellar photograph. Subject matter is one. Angle is another. Composition is a third. We could go on all day, but in the interest of this article, let’s just say that it takes a good eye, piloting capabilities and [...]

New Drone Service in Dubai: Drone Rental Services Launch at Dubai Cricket Stadium

July 11th, 2019|

The cricket world cup is now over. As England players bask in their quite remarkable victory, drinking in the immortality that victory has brought them, impassioned fans sing choruses of celebration hitting the boundaries of joyous exuberance, we can soak it all in and look forward to what drama may unfold in the next four years. Whether you’re a lifelong cricket fan or an armchair viewer, there’s no denying that this world cup had everything. Controversy, tension, drama and one of the most stunning conclusions to a final that’s ever been witnessed. Indeed, the world cup is sure to encourage many youngsters to visit their local cricket club for their first taste of the sport. However, youth interest and the drama of the final aside, there’s one story that has flown under the radar over the last few weeks. One that outlines how a drone service in Dubai and the sport have become intertwined. That is that unlicensed drone pilots will soon be able to use specialist arrive-and-fly facilities at Dubai Cricket Stadium. This move is the result of an agreement struck between Dubai Sports City and drone solutions provider, Airscope. The move, which will be overseen by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) aims to limit the risk of costly airport closures by designating a space environment for drone hobbyists whilst providing Dubai Cricket Stadium with an alternative source of revenue. Why Launch Drone Rental Services? It’s been no secret the airports around the world have been the subject of drone incursion over the last few years. Many governments have taken legislative steps to keep airspace restricted to drones for the safety of airline passengers and pilots and Dubai is no exception. Following the closures of several runways at Dubai International Airport – at a cost of Dh3.67 million or $1 million a minute, with the most recent being on February 15th when the airport was closed for almost half an hour, the DCAA has demanded that all pilots must obtain a licence and be acutely aware of where they can and can’t fly using the DCAA app. Any pilot caught in a restricted area could face jail time or fines of up to Dh100,000, whether using a camera for drone shooting Dubai or merely practicing their aerial maneuverers. Creating a safe, enclosed environment for novice pilots to learn how to pilot their drones, whilst educating pilots of their responsibilities is further evidence of Dubai’s commitment to safe drone piloting, and how the city-state soars above other countries and territories with an innovative approach to drone education, training and piloting. Facility and Long-Term Vision Under the proposed plan, which awaits DCAA guideline and approval, unlicensed drone pilots will be able to arrive, rent and fly drones within the stadium’s limits in much the same way that people can come to the nearby karting track at Dubai Aerodrome and have some fun karting. The facility will also house retail outlets on site. Here visitors can buy a new drone, equipment [...]

The FAA Announces Changes for Recreational Done Operators

June 27th, 2019|

In a move that could have larger implications for the global drone community, the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has implemented changes for recreational drone flyers, as mandated by congress in the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018. Whether these changes will affect how aviation authorities in the GCC region – or anywhere else around the globe – act remains to be seen. However, is it unreasonable to assume that authorities won’t follow-suit and consider their current legislation around drones? Currently, the USA is the only country to have launched fundamental changes affecting amateur pilots however, depending on a variety of considerations and in an effort to make airspace safer, novice drone pilots of limited experience will only be permitted to fly at set altitudes and be subject to stringent restrictions. Are you an amateur pilot with a passion for Dubai aerial photography? Perhaps the thrill of controlling a drone is enough to propel you to take flight at every given opportunity? If this sounds like you, it may be worth reading on to discover the changes that the USA has enforced – you never know, it might not be too long before the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority makes legislative changes that affect you. What the FAA Reorganization Act Says According to the FAA, although non-commercial drone operators may continue to fly below 400 feet in uncontrolled airspace without specific certification or operating authority from the FAA, new legislation means that they are now required to obtain prior authorization from the FAA before flying in controlled airspace and around airports. Given the spate of drone incursion into restricted airspace in the USA, Dubai, and around the world, this new legislation hardly comes as a surprise. Designed to protect the safety of restricted airspace or airspace with a high volume of air traffic, it seems only logical that legislation is passed to prevent accidents. What This Means for Drone Pilots In short, drone pilots should be increasingly mindful of where they can and cannot fly. Professional drone shooting services in Dubai, like Sky Vision, fully understand airspace restrictions and the importance of adhering to all legislation, however amateur drone pilots may not possess such intimate knowledge of their legal obligations. The FAA has now categorically stated that all drone pilots must comply with all airspace restrictions and prohibitions when flying in controlled and uncontrolled airspace. Prior to taking flight and heading into controlled airspace, drone pilots must obtain airspace authorization. Prior to this, drone pilots in the US were only required to notify an air traffic controller when they were within five miles of an airport. In the GCC, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) forbid drones from flying near, around and over airports. In addition, to protect citizens privacy, federal and municipal authorities do not permit drones to fly over residential areas to protect people’s privacy. As any astute and experienced business that provides drone shooting services in Dubai, like Sky Vision, knows understanding where pilots can fly is essential to responsible [...]

The Best GoPro Drone to Consider for all Your Aerial Photography in Dubai

June 12th, 2019|

If you’re intent on capturing some jaw-dropping aerial footage, you’ll need a GoPro. Why? Well, quite simply, there’s no better product on the market for capturing aerial photographs and footage that don’t just piqué attention but demand it. Lightweight and easily fixed to drones of all descriptions, GoPro’s allow users to view the world in a wholly new light. In short, they have revolutionised the world of aerial videography and photography. If you want to capture aerial photography in Dubai or videos that really make viewers sit up and take notice, you need to make sure that you choose a GoPro drone geared for your purposes. Choose the wrong device and you could find yourself heading back to the drawing board – and out of pocket! Why Is Choosing a GoPro for Your Drone a Carefully Considered Decision? Unsure why you must invest so much time into choosing the right GoPro for your drone? Well, there are a handful of pertinent reasons why you shouldn’t take the decision to buy a GoPro for all your aerial photography and videography lightly. Durability No matter if you’re a seasoned pilot or have recently discovered the wonders of drone photography, mid-flight bumps or that dreaded crash is only one false step away. With a GoPro mounted on your drone, there's always the concern that if you crash, your camera won’t survive the impact. You want your GoPro to withstand as much damage as possible. Buying a model that’s likely to falter after the smallest of bumps is hardly ideal. Make sure that you select a GoPro and drone with a solid construction. Place durability atop your list of priorities. This way you can safeguard yourself against any bumps or crashes. Replacement Parts Another essential consideration is whether your drone and GoPro have accessible replacement parts. With bumps and the odd crash being commonplace – especially for inexperienced pilots – you need to make sure that you can source new parts if you need to. There are few things that drone pilots will find more frustrating than being grounded because of an accident, unable to take flight and capture glorious drone photography in beautiful areas like where we are in Dubai, because they cannot source the right replacement part. It’s also a good idea to check that any GoPro you buy can withstand bumps and crashes. If not, you could find yourself heading back to a retailer and spending Dirhams you don’t want to. Quality and Craftsmanship As the adage says, you get what you pay for. Choosing the cheapest drone and GoPro you can find is all fine and well, but sometimes spending a bit more will get you a GoPro and drone that’s less likely to end up costing you more than the investment’s worth in the long-run. So, if you have a flexible budget, it may be worth investing in a slightly more expensive GoPro. Sure all models are robust, but there’s no harm in pushing the boat out and spending [...]

Five Reasons Why You Keep Crashing Your Drone

May 29th, 2019|

Crashing a drone is inevitable. Novice pilots have much to learn before they’re able to confidently take flight and marvel at the exquisite manoeuvres they’re able to pull off. However, before you show off your aerial skills, you’ll need to get the basics down cold. It’s also worth remembering that even seasoned drone pilots may just encounter those slow-motion moments, watching helplessly as their drone hits falls to the ground. Now, experienced drone services in Dubai – like those offered by Sky Vision – understand how to retain optimal control of drones in flight, avoid collisions, and touch down for a safe and soft landing. However, many hobbyists grapple with the controls and face a steep learning curl before confidently taking to the air. Like anything else, the more you know, the better you are. So, with that in mind, and in the spirit of sharing our knowledge with pilots determined to take to the sky confidently, here are five reasons why you keep crashing your drones. Be sure to read them all, you may just discover the reason why you’ve suffered so many broken propellers and frustrating repair expenses! Keeping Your Eyes Fixed on the Control Screen Control screens are awesome – a feat of technological innovation to rival any in the digital age. However, there are occasions when they can hinder a successful flight. Now, as much as we love the displays, immersing pilots in what can only be described as a feeling close to playing console video games as a youngster, keeping your eyes fixed on a control neglects one fundamental aspect of a flight, namely keeping your eyes on the drone itself. This can be circumvented by using an FPV racing drone with Fat Shark goggles, but most novice pilots don’t tend to use such equipment, concentrating on learning how to control their drone’s mid-flight. The purpose of a screen is to provide pilots with information on the surrounding environment, but surely our eyes are better, right? Keeping an eye on your drone means that pilots can control their surroundings better, adjusting flight paths – before it’s too late! Not Using Automatic Flight Mode Carefully Automatic flight modes should be used astutely. Whereas using auto launching and landing shouldn’t be discouraged, especially for pilots with limited experience, there’s one fact that pilots ignore at their own peril – auto flight modes means that they are not flying their drones. Auto flight modes do provide pilots with vital data or the quality of the photos or videos captured – something that drone companies in will use to improve the quality of their footage – but relying on auto flight modes too much can diminish your continuing aptitude as a pilot. Moreover, before selecting auto flight mode, it’s important that your launch site and general is free of hazards. Buildings, natural structures, even tree branches are enemies of propellers. Set auto flight mode and you won’t be able to navigate away from hazards manually. Insufficient GPS Connection Drones [...]
