Ratings and Reviews


I’ve been with Creative Live for years. A couple years ago, I became a paraplegic and I thought my amateur outdoor photography days were over before they started (up until now, I have done mainly portraits with different lighting techniques), The challenges of getting a wheelchair to the right place outdoors seems daunting. I think a drone would be an answer to some of the obstacles. Thank you for this video.. It is heading me in the right direction for some new experiences... Very well done for a beginner like me.
