Is a Drone Essential?

I received a query this morning from a realtor who said she thought she would need an aerial viewpoint for an upcoming listing because the home is on the uphill side of the street on Bellingham’s South Hill. I suggested that a front view of the house with a pole-mounted camera would probably show the house very nicely.

This afternoon I paid a quick visit to the neighborhood and made a couple of test images, one from street level and the other with my camera at the top of my 15-foot pole.

I think the results show that a drone isn’t always necessary. A pole camera photo is faster and cheaper than a drone.
