 Flying IQ is a provider of online specialty courses for aspiring and professional drone operators and aviation enthusiasts. Our Online Professional Aerial Photography Course is a career driven course that teaches the art of capturing the perfect shot from underneath a drone with master level skill. 

The Aerial Photography captured with the use of UAVs is changing the way we see the world and improving our ability to tell stories. Images that were previously only reserved to high-budget Hollywood films are now possible for all UAV photographers.

However, at Flying IQ, we firmly believe that just because you have a camera and a drone, doesn’t mean you are an Aerial Photographer. We push your skills to a level that will distinguish your portfolio from the amateurs.

The Online Professional Aerial Photography Course will be delivered and powered by Dynactive Software’s technology platform. Dynactive believes learning is more meaningful when it is fun and engaging. Dynactive uses a brain-based teaching methodology that works by maximizing learners engagement with over 20 interactivities, conversational writing style, and gamification.

Through the use of games, the Online Professional Aerial Photography Course will help captivate and involve learners in a way that webinars, instructional videos, or classroom lecture don’t. 

As you journey through the course material, you’ll feel included in the refining process needed to mold you into a knowledgeable expert in the career of Aerial Photography.

The expert behind all of our content is Dave Terry from Silverhawk Aerial Imaging. Dave has been flying model and full-scale aircraft since he was 9 years old. He earned his pilots certificate at 16. He has also been flying drones for years. He has the FAA 333 exemption to fly commercially and he has consulted for companies such as FLIR, GoPro, and 3D Robotics. He is a member of the AUVSI and Mountain West Unmanned Systems Alliance. Most notably, Dave has a working relationship with the Discovery Channel and has contributed as part of the team that gets breath-taking shots on Survivorman.

Here is a great example of Dave's work at Snoqualmie Falls in Washington State in the USA.

As you can see in the waterfall video above, amazing shots happen for those who hone their craft and carefully execute planned shoots.

There are common errors that occur in aerial photography. The video below is an example of an aerial photography shoot that was very close to being great, but has a few mistakes.

Risks and challenges

Since we’ve started this company, we’ve become experts in staying up-to-date with the changes in UAV regulation and technology. As these changes occur, Flying IQ is equipped to react and adjust our courses to reflect those changes as quickly as possible.

With our Online Professional Aerial Photography Course, as with all of our drone courses, we’ve designed everything to be as user-friendly, stable and accessible for our customers. Naturally, there may be minor hurdles with the servicing of the courses. However, we can’t foresee anything that would jeopardize the project at hand. Our team is very experienced in the world of online education and are eager to bring the Online Aerial Photography Course to your computer screen.
