Aerial photography in Alabama has opportunity and challenges. The state is heavily wooded with as much as 65% covered in forests. Trees can prove challenging to beginner drone pilots, ensure any operator you hire has the experience to navigate safely. Bodies of water can make for amazingly beautiful aerial images. This presents opportunity as Alabama has more miles of river than any other state in the country. If you'd like to hire a drone operator click here.
