In the hypercompetitive real estate industry estate agents are pulling out all the stops to sell properties. One of the things that estate agents are using to spice up listings is to include aerial photos of houses for sale – especially if they are close to the beach or an area of beauty. Start your own business taking aerial photos for estate agents

Getting started
A DJI Spark drone (capable of 12 megapixel still images and HD video)  or a entry-level drone and a GoPro camera is enough to get started, however if you are going to shoot high resolution aerial videos you might want to invest in a better camera like a DSLR and a drone with the payload to carry the camera.

Business Model
The best way to charge in this business is to charge per property, factoring in the time it takes you and cost of equipment used needs to be factored in as well as the value of equipment depreciates over time and may need to be replaced in future.
