. 4th Video 101 with Bradley TomsI’ve been doing camera work for almost 8 years, and filming weddings for a little over 6. I went to school for communications and specialized in advertising which lead me to getting my foot in the door for an ad agency as a freelancer. I worked there for about a year, and now film different projects for companies like Acorns, LPA, and healthcare clients. Photographing weddings is my full-time gig, and the freelance work is just to keep me busy during the week. Besides doing video, I love traveling, and taking photos of those travels is what I would consider my hobby. While taking photos can make me money, I prefer to keep it as my hobby. Nov. 17 Drone Photography for Fun & Profit with Gary Jefferson & Russ TrozeraI've done many things in my life, but photography has been the most fun. I took my first photos in the 80’s, got serious in the 90’s, shot for a stock agency in the early 2000’s and then retired in 2012 so I could take more photos. I enjoy shooting and developing film but most of my images are taken with a digital camera. I have been flying drones since the original DJI Phantom came out in 2013. I photograph mostly people now (Redlands People), but use the drone often when we travel. I’ve flown in many states and in National Parks - when it was legal to do that. In the beginning, it took me more than three years to take a photograph that I thought was good. It took about the same time to do the same thing when I began drone photography. Russell Trozera is an accomplished photographer and is certified by the FAA under Part 107 as a drone pilot. He has logged 132 flights or about 60 hours of flight time. His primary use of a drone is in real estate, getting a better view from above. His love for photography began in college. He took a break when raising 5 children. His love for photography was reignited when he bought his first digital camera in 1997. It was not so expensive and he did not have to mess with all the chemicals.
