Must be a drone/helicopter. That's the latest gimmick in wedding industry - especially wedding videography.

I looked into drone photo once, but there are so many grey areas about using them commercially. Cool effect. Wonder if they are just standing on a structure or overhang of some kind. Maybe it is that simple

Drones seem to be the latest gimmick in a lot of genres. It's a perspective rarely seen, so it will get it's 15 minutes.

Thank you DJI for opening that new window of our wonderful world of never seen before perspectives.

If you use a done, you need another person for sure. Then there is the liability issue and the uncertain legal issue of using it commercially.

It's gotten a step close to being legal in the US. Seven movie studios were given FAA exemptions recently.

It's still forbidden for everyone else (commercially).

I only saw one photo that had an overhead perspective; it looked like the photographer was in a tree (there are shadows of large trees).

Personally given the cost of the equipment, wages for the operator, heavy public liability insurance premiums and licences for flying the drone etc I cannot see that one or two pictures would justify the increased expenses/lower profits that would follow as a result.

A lot of people are calling this stuff gimmicky. There's no such thing as a gimmick, if it's a good photo.

The first drone photo is wonderfully creative. Kudos to the photographer. He'll probably win some awards, gain more interest in his work, develop more followers and become more successful. Meanwhile half the people bagging his stuff will continue to wallow in mediocrity.

He's brave enough to try some different stuff and he's pulled it off. Bravo.

I disagree. A phantom drone is $1000. You can use it yourself, if you're willing to spend 10 minutes getting it out of the car and flying it. Public liability? They've got rubber/plastic rotors, not dangerous, and most people operate them without going through any loopholes.

It's interesting, and it might just gain him more followers, more interest, awards, reputation for creativity - all the things that lead to greater profits.

He's taken a risk and got some beautiful, creative photos. That already tells me he's ahead of the competition.

You could do that shot with a ladder really.
