Hire a Solo Drone Photographer or a Company?
If you're thinking about hiring a drone photographer, you have a choice between hiring an individual or one of the emerging companies in this space.
As you contemplate your options, I'd encourage you to consider the following points:
Before committing to either option, be sure to ask if all pilots will have their Part 107 certificate which is required for commercial work in the United States. If you hire a drone photographer who is not certified under Part 107, you could be subject to a fine by the FAA.
It's also good to ask about insurance. Most pilots will have $1M in insurance coverage. Accidents that cause damage are rare when using professional pilots, but it's good to have insurance for peace of mind.
