Current Trends in Job Site Photography
Wendy Whittemore is the CEO of Aerial Innovations Southeast, Inc. with 19 years of experience in capturing aerial and ground photographs for the construction and real estate industries. She has stayed educated as the industry has exploded with new technologies and platforms to capture images. However, not everyone has stayed educated! With new tech comes a lot of misinformation, buzz-words, tech speak and potential risk to all parties involved on active construction projects.
Along with Stephen Schween, FAA Remote Pilot, she will be presenting information about:
How images are commonly ordered (when pressed for time, it’s often the first, easiest and cheapest)
Insurance and legal requirements for drone operation
Imaging in legal disputes
Image ownership rights
Metadata and why it’s important
Image industry explosion and advancement of technology (within the last 5 years)
Over priced options with little to no marketing value
Attendees will leave with better knowledge about multiple platforms for image gathering, the risks and costs associated with each and where to obtain factual information about this changing industry.
