It seems as though drones are everywhere these days, with local photographers increasing their revenue by providing unique photography services, the use of drones in the media, viral videos and of course social media influencers creating engaging content with gorgeous shots and video footage.
In 2015 alone, there were about 400,000 drones that were purchased as Christmas gifts. Since then, the number of drones being bought only continues to increase. Today's drone technology offers drone owners endless possibilities when it comes to using their drones. So why exactly do people buy drones? Let's take a look at a few common reasons people keep buying drones.
This then poses the question, is it worth it to invest in a drone?
In most cases, investing in a drone is a smart move. A drone can offer hours of constructive entertainment for the hobbyist. For the professional, it will allow you to earn a living, and work in many different fields such as videography and photography, real estate, industrial inspections, and more.
If you need a little more convincing, read on for 5 reasons you should definitely buy a drone in 2022.Unique Photographic Perspective
As a photography enthusiast or someone who is inherently curious, when you purchase a drone you get to experience a new and different perspective on the world around you. You may be familiar with your hometown and local haunts, but have you ever seen them from above? These breathtaking views are rarely seen by anyone and when you invest in a drone, you get to explore and rediscover areas you thought you knew everything about.
Perhaps the best reason to get a drone is, simply, because they are a lot of fun. Even with the FAA rolling out new consumer-oriented regulations that limit what you can do with a drone, drones are still a lot of fun to fly.
I’m not really sure what it is, but man has always had a fascination with attempting to conquer things he shouldn’t really be able to… and with drones, that attempt is for man to further it’s domain over the skies.
In any case, flying a drone can be a very enjoyable experience… especially if you have a capable drone that is easy to fly. If you haven’t flown a drone, yet, I recommend you do so.
branching out into videography with a drone certainly gives you an edge over your competitors. With a drone you can advertise your services as a unique wedding photographer/videographer, you can work freelance and offer your services to estate agents and property developers, even businesses who want a unique advertising campaign could look towards using drone footage of their premises to make them stand out. The market is expansive and very lucrative.
Stand out on social media
We all follow people who post daily selfies on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. And, we all wonder why they get so many followers…
Now, I’m not suggesting you should be a one-upper, but… you should definitely one-up them and take daily selfies as well… with your drone. That is, of course, if you want to become the new king or queen of your social media circle.
Seriously, though, one of the best ways to build a big social media following is to post high-quality videos or photos that are unique. And, what better way to do that than with a drone?
Capture stunning footage
Ever thought about creating your own film? Or branching out into professional videography? The beauty of a drone is that you get to experience incredibly smooth video footage that simply cannot be matched by any other equipment. From stunning aerial footage to faultless footage around cliffs and shorelines, you can even capture stunning film during family moments such as weddings and even those precious holiday adventures.
Buying a drone is worth it, whether you’re in it for the recreational enjoyment it offers, or with a business venture in mind. With the increased demand for drone services, having a drone will be a good investment that will guarantee huge returns.
