With new regulations limiting drone photography, Composite Poles offers photographers many solutions for effective oblique aerial views without encountering restrictions. Normal public liability insurance is enough as their camera poles, made from carbon fibre and other lightweight tubing, are built for the purpose.
Ranging from the 3m extending BROGE Travel pole at under £150 to a towering 13m able to raise the camera high enough for views of entire fields, houses, factories and estates. Composite Poles are light enough for a solo photographer to move around safely and can be secured at ground level.
Mobile devices now remove the need for any cables and allow easy composition and capture. Lightweight mirrorless cameras mean full Frame high resolution images are possible where once working at maximum height meant using a small sensor compact or action camera. Even the 13m Composite Pole can carry a DSLR camera.
For many jobs, including shooting over the heads of crowds at events or over barrier fences and walls, a 6 to 8m pole is the best choice to start with and will often only need to be extended to 3 or 4m. For solo work, the BROGE Telescopic Mast Tripod pole can reach 7.3m and costs only £326.50+VAT – the ideal entry level solution for any commercial photographer.
