    Use common sense.

    Don't do anything you wouldn't do anywhere else in the world.

    I urge you to take it.

    So much footage opportunity.

    The creek through historic Dubai, ultra chic Marina area or the forgotten Dubai area.

    The dos and don’ts of drone photography

    As interest in drone photography rises in the UAE, hobbyists should be aware that the country’s rules apply to them too

    The increasing number of quadcopters in the UAE has divided residents in the country into two halves – those worried about their privacy, and hobbyists who maintain that these drones are harmless.

    Speaking to Gulf News in April this year, Lieutenant General Saif Abdullah Al Shafar, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior, pointed out that these pilotless rotorcrafts are not prohibited in the country, but its use will be regulated to protect people’s privacy and that the police could intervene and take action if they received complaints from residents.
