Course Introduction

Soar Across the Sky                     See a New World

Compared to traditional photography, aerial photography provides more angles from which creators can capture the world. UASs are becoming a popular tool for travelers, wedding photographers, and journalists, among others. Taught by aerial photography instructors, trainees learn quickly with practical case studies and training.

The UTC Aerial Photography course in The Netherlands is offered in two different formats:

✔ Aerial Photography - Full edition >Learn More     

✔ Aerial Photography - Filmmaking edition 

Aerial Photography - Filmmaking edition is intended for drone community users, who prefer to train during the weekend in a themed environment. During two consecutive weekends, with one optional overnight, you will learn all aspects of filmmaking and aerial photography based on either an Aviation or Racing theme. During the 4-day course, together with the UTC instructor, you will gain practical experience in shots, angles and piloting skills. In the evening you will learn how to edit your footage and assess the work of your classmates in a relaxed environment. Optional activities include paintball or karting, depending on the group’s requests. At the end of the course you will have created your own short movie and became part of the friendly Dutch drone community.

Upon completion you will receive two certificates: the UTC Aerial Photography certificate and the Remotely Piloted Operator Certificate – Light. All trainees will be required to take the UTC test after the training course, including a theory exam and flight test. Additional to the UTC test, the ROC-L exam will provide the trainees with all required certificates to start putting theory in practice. The UTC Certificate will be issued for those who pass the testing, as a recognition of the gained skills for aerial photography.
