How does one create a successful long-term career in aerial photography?

Fiona Lake is a professional photographer based in tropical North Queensland. Fiona has more than thirty years experience in agricultural photography, and has become Australia's most well-known outback photographer. She specializes in agriculture and the world’s largest cattle stations, and has taken aerial photographs from helicopters since 1988. 

Her multi-faceted business includes books, exhibitions and farm tours as well as commercial photography. Less than 2% of Australia's fully licensed drone pilots are women, and Fiona is one of them. She runs drone masterclasses across Australia and more recently, in the US. Her Rural Drone Academy covers everything a drone pilot needs to know to fly safely, legally, productively and enjoyably.  In 2018, Chicago-based 'Women and Drones' named her as a 'Woman to Watch in UAS', along with nine other women from seven different countries.   In 2020, she was winner of the International Federation of Agricultural Journalist’s Photography Award.  She has also been recognized by the Queensland Government as a Community Digital Champion and one of the 100 Faces of Small Business

In this edition of the Drone Radio Show, Fiona talks about helicopter and drone aerial photography, what to look for in a drone training program, and she offers insights into a variety of aerial photography questions, most importantly, how one can develop a successful, long-term career in photography.

Will People Accept Drones to Transport Cargo or Passengers?

Robin Kellermann is the coordinator for Sky Limits, a 2-year project, sponsored by the Technical University of Berlin and the Wissenchaft Im Dialog. The project is short for The Sky is the Limits, and considers the opportunities and challenges that come with opening up urban airspaces to cargo and passenger transport by new technologies such as drones.

Robin has a PhD and lectures at the Technical University Berlin working in the fields of transport and mobility research with a focus on sociotechnical and cultural historical perspectives. He has a background in cultural studies and historical urban studies. He has collaborated in a series of European and domestic research projects ranging from public acceptance of digital technologies in public transportation to long-term scenario developments for the European transport industries. Sky Limits recently completed survey of German resident’s views on allowing drones to transport packages, cargo and people.  While the survey paints a picture of German attitudes towards drones in the air space, it can provide valuable insights into people’s potential views worldwide.

In this edition of the Drone Radio Show, Robin talks about the Sky Limits project, the survey and he provides insights into people’s level of acceptance of drones into the airspace.
