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 more commercial applications: producing web-friendly aerial shots for realestate, site inspections, and footage for advertising and social media promotions.
In 2019, Byron Bay Drone was launched expanding this range of services to include property surveys, photogrammetry and  3D site modelling.
Byron Bay Drone is run by a fully insured CASA registered drone operator (ARN: 1031448) approved to fly commercially under the RPA <2Kg exemption.
