Smile you're on Skycam

Hello I’m Paul Fairbairn, Drone Pilot. “Smile you’re on Skycam™.”

I’ve always been a big fan of new technology. Sheryl says I’m essentially two parts geek, one part beer, and three parts ad man. I’ve recently taken to the skies over Canterbury with the latest in radio controlled quad-copter fully equipped with camera rig. Don’t worry, I’m not working for the GCSB. As you’ll see, it’s about getting out in nature and capturing it from above. I got the drone bug off my son Marc, our Imagician in the U.S. Check out the footage. Twenty years ago, shooting something like this would have cost thousands. These days it’s amazing what we can achieve with the right tech and the right pilot.
