Event description


Welcome to the amazing world of Drone Photography!

The original DJI Aerial Photography Academy is a fun yet intensive one-day class designed to give valuable insight to attendees wanting to create top quality, compelling, marketable aerial drone photography.

This class is for you if:

  • You are a drone enthusiast looking to create the highest quality aerial photographs, and explore an additional source of income.

  • You are a still photographer who wants to add aerial photography to your professional services.

  • You are a realtor, inspector, contractor, emergency responder, artist, civil engineer, insurance adjuster, rancher, developer, or journalist, surveyor... wanting to make your job more efficient.

  • You are confused by the rules, the equipment, costs, the procedures of drone operation.

  • You are retired and looking for a fun hobby that can generate side-income.

Expert drone photographers Randy Braun & Stacy Garlington come from DJI global headquarters as authorized instructors to share their expertise during this fun five-hour, tag-team presentation.

This is the value you will receive:

  • Five exciting hours of priceless information from the most experienced drone photography instructors on the planet.

  • Tips & tricks to accelerate your skills by months or years, in your pursuit of quality aerial photography.

  • Business guidance from drone industry experts who led the Still-Photography Development Team in DJI Shenzhen headquarters.

  • Face-to-face question/answer time with instructors in a small class environment.

  • Hands-on photo post-processing instruction with Adobe Lightroom, the industry standard.

  • High-value drone product and service coupons that will easily recover your registration fee, and a lot more.

  • An excellent opportunity to network with fellow drone operators in your own home-town.

What can I bring to the event? We will present you a 64-page class workbook upon arrival. There is space for personal note-taking in the book. We highly encourage you to bring a laptop computer or tablet so you can follow along post-processing in using Adobe Lightroom. (Tablets are not guaranteed to have the full functionality of Adobe Lightroom.) Sample photos will be provided prior, or at the event. No electricity or wireless hotspot will be guaranteed, but we do our best to have power strips at each table. The room will be set up classroom style with tables and chairs. You may bring your day-pack and store it next to you under the table.
