Drone Filming Companies have helped to revolutionise the way that wildlife and the world, in general, is filmed. In the past, there has been the need for a vast number of photographers and producers to head out in the depths and wilds to capture the wildlife footage. But now, new technologies such as drones have made this work much more manageable.
David Attenborough is probably the man most known for bringing us never before seen footage of animals in the wild and breath-taking imagery of the planet. There will always be the need for photographers to be on the ground, but the equipment they take with them has now developed.
Drones enable the user to be able to get above the subject that is being photographed, as well as meaning that this gives a new perspective. It is also less invasive for the animals involved. Rather than having a camera set up in their environment, which can cause them to be startled, the drone can fly over the top and capture just as detailed imagery as a standard camera.
In the latest series that is narrated by David, Our Planet, the camera crews spend time at the end of each series explaining how they capture the shots. This often involves drones and high tech cameras that are left for long periods of time continually recording the action in front of them.
