Drone Videos Can Enhance Users' Enjoyment Of These Activities


For any outdoor business in which the focus is fun, owners should look for ways to enhance the experience of their customers. One of the ways that you can do so is by hiring aerial drone services to visit your location, put a drone overhead, and capture high-quality videos of people enjoying whatever activities that you offer. You can then edit this footage into fun clips that you can share online. Those in the clips will definitely want to share them, which can further get your business in front of more prospective customers' eyes. If you run a business that offers one of these activities, drone videos are a must.


While you'll need it make it abundantly clear that no one is to shoot a paintball at the drone overhead, having a drone capture video of a paintball game can be exciting. This method of filming allows you to get footage that you couldn't get with any other method. For example, if your paintball course has a tower that players can access, you could have your drone operator position the drone near the tower to provide an enticing vantage point. Or, if there's a body of water on the paintball terrain, hovering the drone in this area can show both teams approaching one another by land.


A ziplining facility can definitely benefit from hiring a drone operator. While action cameras placed on the participants may also be valuable, having a drone hover between some trees to shoot footage of a participant zipping past can really make for an exciting shot. A skilled drone operator can even fly the drone several yards above a customer as he or she travels along the zipline, which can further make this activity seem fun to those watching the clip online.


If you manage a golf course, drone videos can do a lot for you. For starters, shooting clips of some golfers and then posting these videos online will please your customers. Golfers would love the idea of seeing themselves play from a unique angle—and one that may make them feel, if just for a moment, that they're being filmed because they're taking part in a professional tournament. The drone's overhead footage can also effective showcase the visual appeal of your course, allowing you to document holes in a unique manner that will make them even more enticing to local area golfers.

Navigating Public Transportation in a Big City

I come from a small town. It's so small that there is no public bus service—you can walk everywhere within city limits. People drove their cars if they wanted to leave town. At home, I rarely saw a taxi, and subways were something I only saw in movies. Moving to New York City was a shock in many ways, but learning how to get around using public transportation was one of the biggest hurdles that I faced. I didn't know how much to tip a taxi driver or how to find my way around on the bus. However, I did eventually learn. I know that there must be many people who are facing the same learning curve that I was facing a few years ago. I started this blog to help other small town natives like me learn how to get around in the big city.
