Morning all,

 

Can anyone recommend locations in the lower north island that are worthwhile for a budding drone photographer?

Hi - just noticed your post from Nov.
I guess it’s such a subjective thing that it’s very hard to answer. I’ve been flying a Phantom 4 for a couple of years and recently bought a Phantom 4 Advanced for the better camera - I’m waiting on the arrival of a set of ND, grad & polarised filters for the new flying device.
I mostly fly for commercial photography & videography reasons, but do occasionally send up the drone for personal projects. I enjoy coastal regions but I find that all sorts of landscapes can look pretty spectacular from the air during golden hour.

I have seen some impressive images shot around Castle Point in the Wairarapa and plan to take the drone over there at some stage over summer and I imagine some of the coastal areas of Taranaki would be ripe for aerial photography.




Cheers,
Mike

I've got a photographer friend who dabbles in Drone shots...

 

 

 

Does some really nice stuff out Bethells.

 

The hardest bit of it all that i see is, The community can get a little antsy about drones flying above so he's pretty cautious about where he does it and is always posting up warning it's going on to ensure permission is given etc..
