Legal Drone Photography in Maryland

FAA 333 Approved Drone Company in Baltimore Maryland for hire

Our drone company Skye Cam Productions has received our FAA 333 Exemption, with our Pilots-in-command (PIC) maintaining either their FAA Remote Pilot Part 107 Certificate, or ratings for full-size aircraft. Our drones are all registered for commercial use, and we abide by all airspace rules and current regulations. This allows us to conduct drone photography operations commercially and legally in Baltimore, Maryland, as well as the rest of the United States.

As drone photography has become more prevalent across the United States, the FAA has developed guidelines that must be followed for any business to use an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) for any commercial gain.

These guidelines were developed to keep the national airspace safe while drones become more common for both hobbyists and businesses. With some close calls and injuries related to drone flight making it in the news lately, it is now more important than ever to make sure you are using qualified and legal professionals for any commercial drone photography job.

Here are a few videos that show what mistakes may lead to when a pilot is conducting a drone photography operation without proper safety protocols:

At SkyeCam Studios, we pride ourselves on safety and professionalism. We will always make sure we have a proper flight plan, are not flying over people not involved with the project, and have a spotter on site. This has allowed us to conduct dozens of commercial drone photography operations without a single issue. Our pilots have hundreds of hours of combined experience behind the controls of a variety of drones. We also maintain a minimum of $1,000,000 liability on our drone jobs in Maryland and the rest of the country.

When you are looking for qualified pilots to fly your commercial drone photography job in Baltimore, Maryland, and the rest of the U.S., make sure you are using pilots who are licensed. The license will show their commitment not only to safety, but also to quality of the work.

Feel free to browse our portfolio to see examples of some of our current work. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about using a drone for your photography or videography needs. We hope to chat with you soon!

Indoor Drone Photography in Maryland

Indoor Photography In Baltimore Maryland Using Aerial Drones From Skyecam Studios

With the newest additions to our Baltimore drone fleet, SkyeCam Studios now has the ability to safely perform indoor aerial drone flights for both photos and video. Our drones have the ability to shoot sonic waves to the ground, which in addition of a downward facing camera help to map out the area below for safe flying indoors. This has previously been impossible to achieve safety as previous drone models rely on satellite signals to navigate with and they do not function well indoors.

The Technology

We have a fleet of these drones in Baltimore, Maryland ready to fly both indoors and outdoors. An example of drone use indoors is a video mapping out a home or a commercial real estate location. The shots are silky smooth as the camera is fully independent and stabilized. All video is filmed in Ultra HD, also known as 4K. The advantage of flying indoors is that we can position a camera at any angle.

Indoor Ground Photography Service

Additionally, another dual option service we have not previously mentioned on the website, but have frequently provided for real estate clients is indoor real estate photography. These indoor images of the property are captured with a high quality ground camera separate from the drone, all during the same visit to the home. We are able to your one stop shop providing real estate services room to room as well as drone exteriors.
