Access to remote areas
Some remote African villages are deep in the forest and almost inaccessible areas. Handling emergency cases in such places is a challenge even if information got to people responsible in time. If floods or any natural calamity occurred and there are survivors, it often an emergency to transport food, toiletries, and medicine to an area.

Selling a house is never easy. Potential buyers will often call from different parts of your city and wish to have an idea of the property. Meeting with different customers at different times can be tedious. Of course, you have pictures of the property and interior but how about the exterior in one photo?
A drone is the only assistance to aerial view photography. You can create a video of backyard and all sides of your property by a drone on the aerial view. Potential buyers will have a clear picture of what they are negotiating hence time-saving. As a seller, you can be sure whoever comes to the property is in the decision-making stage and not only viewing the house.
Farming is only interesting if you can effectively manage your field. It is just tedious and cumbersome for most people because of management issues. Drones are a solution to some of the farming challenges. Large-scale farmers do not have to worry about moving around the whole farm to check on irrigation and plant growth.
With a drone, a farmer can sit comfortably on one end of the farm and control keenly observe every crop by directing the drone. A faulty irrigation system can easily be detected. Infested crops cannot escape the high definition camera on drones. Drones are small and can go through leaves for effective examination processes.

Some people criticize drones as a compromise to privacy; while this is true, there are several cool functions of drones that overshadow the minor issues in society. Drones are amazing. They double human existence because you can sit at one point and watch what is happening in the next compound.
At first, they were crazily expensive; most drones today range below $400. It is no longer something to attract attention in the city or neighborhood; it is now common to see a person sitting on a truck with remote control. If there is anything to worry about drones, it is privacy. Still, this constitutes the cooling element. Snooping can be cool to some degree, like secretly watching over your property.
Taking photos using drones:
- Perfect for private investigation
It’s probably not right, but drone photography helps a lot especially in private investigation purposes. You could decide to spy on someone (a cheating spouse for instance), and they go to places that you can’t go in without raising suspicion to say a hotel room on the 24th floor. You can fly the drone up that floor so you can get a view of the room well without having to be anywhere in the building.
- Epic drone selfies
Drone photography is amazing for taking selfies. Many epic selfies on the internet were taken with drones. They give you a great feel as your front side is captured at angles from a distance in the air. This is pretty cool.
3. Event Videos

Capturing moments for instance at the wedding is one of the most treasured photography. However, when people pose for photos, their real emotions don’t necessarily surface. Drone photography doesn’t leave anything unrecorded in photos. That’s the beauty of it.
- Smart Journalism
When celebrities are walking, and journalists try taking photos, chasing them with cars, it can be pretty strenuous not forgetting that the pictures don’t always turn out perfect due to the rush. Instead of all the effort getting drained chasing after them, a drone would be perfect for photos. However, the law prohibits certain drone photography especially any related to journalism purposes.

When it comes to drone photography, there are no limits. When something happens, a Tsunami or any related disaster, the victims need the help of various kinds. However, helicopters go trying to take pictures, but they can’t be entirely successful due to the existence of obstacles like trees. However, drone photography can enable the taking of images under obstacles and what not. This makes it super reliable as it can capture the real struggle and agony that victims may be facing. A release of photos regarding what happened will increase donations and hence help the victims.
The best part is the instant help disaster victims can get through drone photography. Because drones can get under rocks and debris, someone stuck under will be able to be spotted and rescued in no time.
- Wildlife Shots
When you go to many national parks, you are told not to take photos of some animals at close range. This is because you might be disrupting their natural behavior and habitat. However, with drone photography, you can capture amazing photos from any angle while keeping a distance.
