I’m Mel and I’m part of the Visual Arts team at Blackpool Sixth Form College. Way back before ‘Covid times’ we began introducing drone photography to our creative students as workshops with experienced drone pilots. This proved so popular and beneficial to our students that we decided to purchase our own drone in early 2020. Unfortunately Covid lockdowns/strict health and safety measures pretty much immediately hit and we have been unable to deliver any practical drone sessions with our students and our drone has so far remained unused.
I’m hoping to kickstart some flying opportunities again for our young people in the coming year so I thought this would be a great group to join for tips, advice and experience.
