Aerial Filming

Aerial Filming is the taking of photographs/videos of the ground from an elevated/direct-down position. Usually the camera is not supported by a ground-based structure. Platforms for aerial photography include fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, multirotor Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), balloons, blimps and dirigibles, rockets, pigeons, kites, parachutes, stand-alone telescoping and vehicle-mounted poles. Mounted cameras may be triggered remotely or automatically; hand-held photographs may be taken by a photographer.

Aerial filming/photography should not be confused with air-to-air photography, where one or more aircraft are used as chase planes that “chase” and filming/photograph other aircraft in flight.
