    There are AWESOME free open source software alternatives to Adobe products. I *highly* recommend Darktable for photo editing, and Kdenlive for video editing… keep that $700.

    Well Done!!!

    1) Part time =/= 1/7th as much. That’s a hobby. If you’re just starting out then you won’t be good enough to charge enough to be profitable working once a week – one battery at a time. That is, literally, by definition, a hobby. Part time would be shooting ~3-4 days per week.

    2) Abode is not a software. It is a software suite. 2a) Abode CC is not necessary for a drone photography business. They have a photography package that’s like $10 or $20 / mo and includes Lightroom and Photoshop. 2b) if you are just starting out with Adobe, then enroll in a course for $50-200 that allows you to get Adobe CC Edu and get it for half off (overall it’ll be significantly cheaper than if you didn’t get the course, and you get a course).

    What do you do about taxes? Do you file a 1099?

  17. D R on December 10, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Thanks Man!

  18. Justin Ryan on December 10, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Best drone related video I’ve seen. Someone talking real world instead of all the social media influencers and their feel good vibes… cheers man. I need to forward this to all my clients with the invoice attached!so many cowboys out there travelling around in vans and picking up a camera or drone and charging their beer money for dubious quality output and killing the industry for everyone else by creating unrealistic expectations on price. FWIW My advice is pick your market carefully.

  19. Stephen Smith on December 10, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    I didn’t even hear him mention setting up a corporation, or tax liabilities, workman’s comp, SS, investments back in-to the corporation for new growth. Who’s going to handle your accounting and filings? Where’s the business strategy (plan)? What’s going to happen if you can’t bring in new business? There are more negatives than romantic ideas. 😩

    I might have missed it, but don’t forget about Uncle Sam – he’s on you’re payroll too, and he’s not cheap!

    You’re completely right buddy, thank you for sharing your experiences with us

  28. Adam Savage on December 10, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Drone pilots need to share what they charge. It’s empowering and helps keep prices fair for both parties. I fly real airplanes and we talk about how much we make with each other all the time.

  29. D K on December 10, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    What about not saying what about

    Nice job and your absolutely right

  34. MahdiBanners on December 10, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Exactly, if you’re going to charge dirt cheap you would be better off working for McDonald’s !

  35. Brett Hartman on December 10, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Useless

  36. Project Brickell on December 10, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    In some locations a film permit is required. I pay $150 every 30 days for a permit. Permits are great through because they really weed out the non licensed $20 a flight guys. In my area the FAA fines people. I live in Miami.

  37. S Curry on December 10, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    VERY informative!!!!!! Thank you for breaking it down. Best video I have viewed thus far!

  38. InTheBox Delivery on December 10, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    thank you

  39. Preston Firmin on December 10, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    I really appreciate your video. It is a good breakdown. I do want to point out that the drone price should be spread out over 2 or 3 years which would lower the hourly rate. Great video and I appreciate it!

  40. Kingsley Mattheisz on December 10, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    👍🏾

  41. InTheBox Delivery on December 10, 2020 at 10:36 pm
