Photography and Videography
Drone technology has been revolutionizing the marketing landscape at an accelerated rate in the past few years. New equipment and software have allowed commercial drone pilots to capture high quality imagery at different altitudes and angles. The imagery can clearly communicate to many different marketable aspects to potential buyers, clients, tourists, or investors.
To ensure only premier quality products, SEAKdrones uses the latest stable aerial platforms, interchangeable lenses, and high resolution full-frame and micro four-thirds cameras. We leverage high resolution stills (45MP full frame aerial camera), and HD and 4k video, using aesthetic capture and editing techniques to create stunning stills and aerial videos for your business to share on YouTube, Facebook, MLS, or your website. Whether a simple pan or a corkscrew rise and reveal video, we can program the flight to ensure smooth, captivating footage. SEAKdrones has created VR imagery, 3D panoramas, large format panoramas, and 4k videos in buildings and in remote field locations. Whether a city, lodge, outfitter, or real estate professional, professional drone photography and videography sets you and your business apart.
SEAKdrones used only certified FAA Part 107 commercial pilots and is fully insured. The FAA requires that FAA certified drone pilots capture photographs and videos that are used for commercial purposes. The FAA must grant authorization for flights in Ketchikan and other areas of Southeast Alaska. SEAKdrones has been flying drones in Southeast for several years and has received FAA authorizations to fly in Ketchikan’s congested airspace. We have an accident-free and violation-free safety record.
High Resolution Still Photographs. Drones like SEAK’s high resolution (45MP) full frame P1 sensor produces captivating images. Commenting on a high resolution large format panorama using the P1’s images, a recent national client summed it up in one word, “stunning”. SEAKdrones has several other drone platforms that include smaller, backpack portable drones and larger, but backpack capable, drones with 4/3 MFT cameras and interchangeable lenses. We fit the drone to the job.
Large Format Photography. Low altitude large format photography permits wider views at low angles. By using pattern recognition software, numerous photos (e.g., 20-30) taken from a stable, drone platform, can be stitched together to deliver a single large format photo. These aerial-panoramic photos provide amazing clarity which allows for stunning zoom capability with zero to minimal resolution drop-off. These are excellent for creating very large, framed wall hangings for your establishment.
360 Photographic VR. 360° Photographic VR provides potential clients with an immersive virtual reality experience of the location. Using a readily available 3D viewer, viewers can control what they see and how long they see it. Our clients can narrate their own immersive experience, if desired. An example of 360VR can be seen at our archaeology post and real estate post for examples of photos and videos.
Videography/ Animation. Cinematic videography footage shot in ultra-high definition (UHD) 4k, 30 fps or as requested by the client, provides smooth, “jitter less” aesthetic footage using programmed flights. Single frames can be cut and used separately when shooting 4k UHD.
