If it’s too high in the sky you get too much sun glare.”Brad loves the unique shots he can take with the drone as it rises above buildings.“I like the wow-factor. I like a photo that you look at and go ‘gee, that’s good.’”

He’s been experimenting with a GoPro camera attached to the drone, which gives a “fisheye” curve to his shots. “A GoPro camera gives you a different look to what a normal camera does. It gives you a totally different perspective on things.”
