Matt Payne Photography Blog: All About Drone Photography With Drew Armstrong On The F-Stop Collaborate And Listen Podcast - May 27, 2020

Welcome to episode 162 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week's episode features a photographer hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah - he's a great guy and a supporter of the show. Our guest is an absolute master of drone photography, including cityscapes, landscapes, architecture, night-time, and everything in between. We had a wonderful time chatting all about drones. Without further ado, welcome Drew Armstrong to the show! Drew and I had a wonderful conversation this week and dove deep into the world of drones, including:

  • Why Drew likes using drones for his photography.
  • How to choose a drone for your photography.
  • Getting a Part 107 License for drone photography.
  • How to deal with people yelling at you while piloting.
  • What to do about losing or crashing your drone.
  • Governmental regulations around drone photography.
  • ... and much, much more

Over on Patreon this week, Drew shares his experience raising his transgender son and how that has impacted his photography work.

I hope you enjoy our conversation!
