We have been in doing 360 panoramas and have always wanted to take it into the air. Recent years, drones has made it very accessible and easier to do so at really cost effective ways.

We do commercial shoots using drones for runs and events. This workshop allow us to share our love for drones photography and videography with everyone. You are most welcome to come back and take with you the drones available for rental on your next holiday. We have all local permits needed to conduct this workshop.

Great intro to drones for first timers.! Gwen shares his knowledge on drone flying regulations and gives clear instructions on how to operate the different drones. Optimal group size for sufficient time to hands-on 2 different drones.

This was our first time flying a drone and both Gwee Wan and his wife were really helpful and patient in teaching us the controls. We had a great time flying the drone and taking wefie videos with the Marina Bay Sands skyline behind us! The videos and photos can be easily downloaded from the app at the end of the day. You don’t have to be a drone enthusiast to sign up for this tour. Anyone can fly a drone!
