I started Different Perspective because I’ve always had a passion for getting that unique shot, the shots that bring a smile to people’s face, the shot you can’t believe is real. I’ve been in the video production industry for over 10 years and had to chance to work on some amazing projects and with some amazing people, now I am fully involved in aerial photography and work solely on aerial projects. My goal is to get you the shot you truly didn’t think was possible, but with a “Different Perspective” from the air it becomes reality. We provide services that include Aerial Video , Photography, and High Quality Mapping. We utilize GPS enabled, gimbal stabilized, ultra high definition 4K cameras to capture breathtaking footage that has never been possible with full size a helicopter. This is truly cutting edge technology! The unmatched maneuverability of our remote controlled Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) with varying speeds and altitudes provide that different perspective your company is looking for on your next project. We go where full size helicopters could never imagine going. And as always we work closely with you to ensure that your vision becomes reality. We are a small company with a passion to fly, our goal is to work closely with you to ensure that your vision becomes reality, but also within your budget. Truly we have a passion for flying and the beauty of aerial photography, there is nothing more powerful then a beautiful shot from the sky. Our company is located out of the beautiful state of Indiana, our home is in Fishers, IN but we will travel statewide or even nationwide depending on your project. We love traveling to new locations and seeing different parts of the state and nation. We love this country and love showing the true beauty of it.
The exceptional maneuverability and close range capabilities of our UAVs enable us to capture breath taking aerial video, while doing it at a much more economical price. We can shoot aerial video from 4 to 400 feet above ground at any angle. What’s even more awesome is we can show you the exact shot via a video downlink before, during and after we capture the shot.
We specialize in Aerial Photograghy for Real Estate, Concerts, Events, Weddings, Commercial Construction, Etc. Utilizing our quadcopter technology (UAVs) we are able to capture high definition photos including High Dynamic Range Imaging from virtually any angle, any distance, and any high that you just can’t get from a normal manned helicopter!
Need a up to date aerial map of your property or business? We can provide you with that! UAVs are perfect for aerial mapping, using the latest UAV technology and GPS we can provide accurate flying through waypoints to create maps with high quailty detail. Multiple times the resolution of Google Maps! Also Google Maps can be years out of date, our maps are high quality and up to date!
1What sort of weather conditions can you fly in?
The two main limiting factors for our quadcopters are wind and precipitation. At the time for safety reasons we do not fly our system in winds exceeding 20MPH. For smoother shots we generally recommend flying in winds of 10MPH or less. We currently cannot fly in precipitation but are actively looking at some very promising solutions to allow for these sort of flights.
2How does a typical shoot work?
Our team travels to your location with all the necessary equipment. Once at the location, we unload, set-up, and do all our safety checks. If all systems are good to go, then we can be ready for our first flights in approximately 20 minutes. On bigger shoots where the client is present our team usually consists of two key members: a primary pilot, and a remote camera operator/secondary pilot, sometimes we only need one pilot depending on the shoot. We typically ask our clients to provide one individual to act as a spotter during the shoot. While the camera is airborne, a live video feed is sent to our ground-station. From here, the camera operator, as well our client, can see everything from the camera’s perspective. Together, along-side the pilot, the group can easily communicate to one another in order to ensure the desired video/images are captured.
3Are drones (UAV's) safe to use?
Yes! Flying drones/quadcopters is totally safe as long as a trained pilot is behind the controls of the drone. I have over 5 years of experience flying drones and over 10 years operating cameras.
4Can you fly indoors?
Yes. Our systems are completely electrical and very stable. All we need is a location with a large open unobstructed area, such as a stage, warehouse, sports facility, showroom, auditorium, etc.
5Is it legal to use drones?
Yes. It is 100% legal to use drones for commercial use as long as you stay within the FAA Guidelines for example not flying around airports or flying over 400′. Different Perspective always stays within the FAA guidelines!
6How high, and how fast can you fly?
We limit our operations to an altitude of 400′ for legal and safety reasons. As for speeds, wind conditions play a role, but it is not uncommon to obtain maximum speeds of about 45MPH while flying.
7Why hire us if you or a friend has a drone?
We could teach anyone to fly one of our drones if we had a full day with you. The catch is flying a drone while operating a camera, getting the perfect shot, and also making sure all of the camera settings are perfect. My 10 years of experience in the video production industry gives me the upper hand between just hiring a friend with a drone verse hiring someone that has been flying drones for 5 years and has been working with cameras for 10 years. Also we use the latest UAV hardware and are always updating to the latest state of the art technology as evolves.
8Can you fly anywhere in the world?
Yes. Our system is very mobile and can be easily packed up for flying. We have traveled with, and operated our aerial systems all over the United States and hope to one day travel overseas.
