— Frequently Asked Questions —
What do you do for a living?
I am a commercial drone photographer, filmmaker & creator. This means brands and companies use our services to provide aerial solutions & content. My clients include luxury resorts, tourism departments, NFP, local & national governments and Film & TV production companies.

Why this channel?
Always loved getting in front and behind a camera (film nerd). Youtube gave me the opportunity to keep this obsession going and an outlet to just be myself, share my knowledge and have fun!

Where are you from?
Malaysian born, grew up in Perth, now live in Melbourne Australia but consider myself as a citizen of the earth. We will probably meet at an airport.

What gear do you use?
Not the brand loyal type, just what works well! …but currently, Sony A7Sii/A7iii/ Nikon D610/ DJI Inspire 2/ Phantom/ Mavic 2/ various bits & bobs. See my gear here:

Are you sponsored?
No, although I have several affiliated brands that I collab with. If you would like to sponsor my work hit us up 😉

UAVISUALS™ (Unmanned Aerial Visual Solutions) is fast becoming Australia’s preferred drone photography and cinematography specialists. We work on content creation for brands globally as well as workshops and corporate training.

    What type of drone jobs do you do and how many hours do you spend outside?

  5. WalkaboutLife on March 30, 2021 at 12:37 am

    I’m curious about shots. Are you are going for mostly static video and photography? Or do your customers want more cinematic reveals and sweeping landscapes?

    What was the point of making this video ? Please tell me.

  15. bear laceration on March 30, 2021 at 1:05 am

    I’m happy to see you use the term operator and not pilot because you are no pilot in any way shape or form

  16. Ashley Valentin on March 30, 2021 at 1:05 am

    Really cool! I’m interested in this field, actually. I’m at university now and I’m considering switching to UAS.

  19. Titus Nixon on March 30, 2021 at 1:13 am

    how many Drones do you takes on a job

  20. No One on March 30, 2021 at 1:15 am

    See I’m almost done with High School, and I’m looking at jobs at the local College. Drone Operator is one of them, however I’m honestly confused. Because the average salary is 75K according to lots of sources. However it seems like all these videos you just run around with the drone flying over locations? I mean is it a pretty easy job? It looks easy to me, however I’ve never done it so I can’t say. Do you think its easy, or can it be really challenging, and complex?

  21. Darren Rehm on March 30, 2021 at 1:16 am

    Do you work for that company or are you a owner operator?

  22. Carlos Melendez on March 30, 2021 at 1:16 am

    Are you freelance or do you work for a company and how do you find jobs?

  23. Droneserve LTD on March 30, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Great work

  24. Adam SkyPixelDS on March 30, 2021 at 1:19 am

  26. KonTiki Nomads on March 30, 2021 at 1:26 am
