I have recently been thinking of using a quad-copter  to take some decent aerial photography photos in Australia. 

I found out it is legal to fly as a hobby but not when we want to take photos for commercial gain. 

Here is a great poster that explains the current laws & rules in Australia. 

What are your thoughts?

Are you flying your #drone  / #uav  / #djiphantom  legally in Australia

CASR 101 is the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Regulations - Part 101 that provides the requirements from CASA to fly Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) / Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) / Drones in Australia. 

Below is a summary of the rules. Feel free to print it out.

+Tanya Rochat Nah, they'd LIKE to, but the range is FAR too short - unless like me you live line-of-sight from a military airbase (Richmond)

After many requests to make my art and illustrations available as digital wallpapers I have finally released these 10 images optimized for iPad 2, iPad Mini and iPad Retina HD wallpapers. 

There are still many on their way and I will also make HD iPhone and Android wallpapers available soon.

Some of my artwork using ONLY photos
 
Fine Art Photography of a World War I Dogfight

I created these fantasy matte paintings with 100% photographic stock.

I first sketched the scene that I wanted to create on paper. From this sketch I created concept art to help me with the element selection. Then I started to look around for the elements to use in the matte painting. Whenever I found something I felt was a potential fit I would photograph it or search for a photo in my (constantly expanding) photography library. Sometimes it would take weeks before I managed to collect all the required elements. Once I had all the elements together it could take another 160+ hours to put it all together. I used Photoshop and also have a Wacom Cintiq which makes the concept art much easier. (Yes I know I could create some elements in software like Maya, Cinema4D, DAZ etc but I wanted to make sure it is all photographic content)

The elements I used in the WW1 Dogfight digital matte painting are made up of:
Biplane models bought at my local hobby shop
Clouds from my photographic library
“Smoke” from factory chimneys
I hope you enjoy this.

An UAV Controller Certificate is required in order to pilot / control an Unmanned Aircraft according to the #UAS   Operations Manual. The #Drone  / #uav   Controller Certificate is in essence a “UAV Pilot License” and required by all commercial operators of an UAV or RPA in Australia. CASA has transitioned to rename UAVs to Remotely Piloted Aircraft ( #RPA  ) and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS). An RPAS is a sub-section of the overall UAS terminology as defined by ICAO.

Hi everyone, I am new to this community, but not new to the love for and collection of BJD's.
I am about to embark on a journey of making my very first BJD, in a bit of a fashion style. I'll be using polymer clay and will blog the whole process.
Right now I am in the process of designing her and all her parts. I will keep you posted ;)
