What Is Aerial Photography and How Does It Work?

Aerial photography is a service our professional photographers provide that involves taking high-quality photographs from an aircraft or drone to capture different angles from a bird’s-eye view.

Cameras can be affixed to various types of platforms when taking aerial photos, including fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), blimps, parachutes, vehicle-mounted poles and other similar equipment.

Aerial photographs can be taken manually or triggered automatically and typically are taken at an angle — otherwise known as “oblique” — or taken straight downwardly or vertically.

Vertical photos are best for showcasing streets or large, open spaces surrounding a particular area. In contrast, oblique photos focus more on the details of the subject, such as a particular building or landmark.
