July 17 2018 - Introduction to Drone Photography

2018 07 droneOn July 17, 2018, at Central Chapter in Griffin, GA, Jay and Erin Blanton will talk about landscape drone photography.  The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM at the Women’s Center, Spalding Regional Hospital. Members as well as interested potential members are invited. This meeting is free and open to the public.

Jay & Erin Blanton are from South Georgia, near the Florida line. Jay has been in the professional videography and IT business since 2005.  He became interested in photography more recently and became a certified drone pilot in 2017.  They began posting Jay's photos on Facebook in 2016 and soon after opened The Georgia Photography Fanatic, specializing in landscape and drone photography and videography services.  

Some may have a negative impression of drone photography due to media stories in the past.  However, when done correctly, as Jay and Erin do, this type photography can reveal sights, details, and views that are simply not available any other way.  The amazing images captured by Jay and Erin include video of crops being harvested, historic buildings, and views of communities that we normally never get to see. They have photographed many of the small towns of rural South Georgia, as well as locations in Florida.  They also produce some fantastic still images as well!

They will give an overview of FAA regulations for hobbyist and professional drone pilots and how those regulations apply to drone photographers. They will also show their equipment and share some of their photos.  I promise you, you are in for a treat!
