Drones are the future, whether we like it or not. The government has been using them for years now, but the civilian sector has just now begun to burgeon. Festivals are investing and, in turn, are being rewarded with footage and pictures only previously possible via helicopter.

With the increased prevalence of unmanned aircraft in civilian hands, the use of these devices from the stereotypical ‘spy tool’ to a more creative field can only be expected. This is a technological integration that I truly look forward to seeing progress, and it presents many more opportunities for both promotional companies and photographers alike.
