Welcome to Byron Bay Drone


Back in the days aerial imagery services was provided exclusively by photographers utilizing helicopters, or via camera fitted blimps.
 In 2007 I launched my first blimp, with a tiny RC camera transmitting video on a TV monitor. Ten years later, as  the technology evolved exponentially with lightweight lithium batteries and featherlight high resolution cameras, manufacturers developed Remote Pilot Aircrafts, creating new opportunities across all industries for Drone operators.
My initial drone operations involved flying above the Byron Bay shoreline shooting surfing videos, and soon  evolved into commercial applications: producing web-friendly aerial shots for realestate, performing site inspections, and creating footage for advertising and social media promotions.
In 2019, Byron Bay Drone was launched expanding its range of services to include property surveys, photogrammetry and  3D site modelling.
With current public safety challenges that Australia is facing, from bushfires through to floods and the COVID19 pandemics, Byron Bay Drone is currently expending its range of services proposing drone operations services to local and government authorities.
Byron Bay Drone is run by a fully insured CASA registered drone operator (ARN: 1031448).

As remotely piloted devices, drones are naturally effective at minimizing human interactions. As the COVID19 virus spreads worldwide, drones have been instrumental to measure body temperature, to disperse crowds and enforce the law using loud speakers or even desinfect specific areas all from a safe distance.
