Rydal Water shot on a DJI Mavic 2 Pro

The lone tree at Rydal Water in the Lake District on a misty autumn morning

A flyover of the largest island on Rydal Water in the Lake District shot on a DJI Mavic 2 Pro on a misty autumn morning. The video, which is a single 30 second shot is longer than most footage of its type but it works because the result almost looks like a moving still image where more interest is revealed the longer you watch it. Scroll down to view the video.

Drone photography and video

Twisleton Scar in the Yorkshire Dales shot on a DJI Mavic 2 Pro at sunrise

Drone photography is something I’ve shied away from until this year when I was first loaned a DJI Mavic air from DJI, and then bought my own drone – a DJI Mavic 2 Pro. So, in April this year, I completed the two-day PfCO course with Pro Drone Academy in Ely, which I’m happy to say I passed. And after applying for my Permissions for Commercial Operations from the Civil Aviation Authority, I received my PfCO at the end of May. I’m now a CAA approved drone pilot, so in addition to my standard photography services I can now provide aerial stills and video to clients.
