Drones are now common equipment for photographers in niches like real estate, but have you wondered where drone photography might fit into your studio/business?
Know you want to add drone services but are unsure where to start?
Vic Moss, a professional architecture photographer, and local drone expert, will be at the June meeting with answers.
He will introduce the different types of drones and their uses, touch on composition and exposure challenges, talk about basic drone safety in the national airspace system, answer questions, and more.
Come see what it’s all about or dip your toe in the drone waters!
If this sounds like fun but you want more in-depth information and/or a hands-on experience…
Fear not! Our June 10th workshop is exactly what you’re looking for – Vic will be deep-diving into these topics and more, and you’ll even get a chance to take a drone out for a spin and try your own hand at drone photography! (Vic will have drones available to try if you do not have your own.)

About Vic Moss
Vic Moss holds a degree in photography, has been a commercial photographer since 1988, and his projects have taken him all over the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, and India. He specializes in photography for the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) industry.
Vic started flying drones commercially in 2013, and started working with the FAA on drone education and safety in 2018. As an FAA Drone Pro for the CO/WY region, he has worked with drone operators who have broken regulations or flown recklessly and helped them understand the rules and fly more safely. He is one of only two members of the FAA’s Advance Aviation Advisory Committee (AAAC), formerly known as Drone Advisory Committee (DAC). Vic works on a number of governmental subcommittees and travels Washington D.C. quarterly to meet with the FAA and discuss regulatory charges in the drone rules.
Vic has taught photography unofficially for 15 years (high schools, demos, etc), and officially for at least 5 years. He teaches online classes with the Pilot Institute.
Vic is the main administrator of the Facebook groups Commercial Drone Pilots, and UAV Legal News & Discussions, with a combined membership of almost 40,000 drone pilots. Additionally, he is VP/COO of Drone Service Providers Alliance (DSPA). DSPA is a 501(c)(6) whose main focus is advocating on behalf of small and medium-sized drone companies in the U.S. Vic will also be exhibiting and moderating two panels at May’s AUVSI XPONENTIAL (XPO), the largest Unmanned conference in the world at the Colorado Convention Center May 8-11.
