I am still scanning through all the posts on the rules and regulations so please be patient with me if I hit on anything previously posted. It is the intent of this post to gain some guidance in regards to light UAV operation in regards to aerial photography (i.g. taking pictures of properties for the purposes of realty companies etc)
At present, is it possible to legally take pictures from the air for profit?
I intend to use this mostly in residential areas operating at altitudes no greater than 400 feet (or thereabouts).
Also, I hope to use the concept to take pictures of river areas and recreational areas since the tourism industry is very strong here.
Can someone please point me to posts that already exist directly regarding these topics?
Is there any organization I can join in regards to this that might also be interested in expanding these operations in the Tennessee Valley area?
That's all the questions I have for now and I sincerely appreciate any help given.
on a personal note... this is something I have wanted to do for a very long time, every since I was a kid. It isn't just about making a profit... in all honesty it may not even be mainly about that. I simply want to make a living doing something I love and hopefully pass on that legacy to my children.
