New changes to regulations by the FAA (Aug 2016) require all drones over .55 pounds be registered and the operators of drones being used for commercial work, must be certified operators. Please ask anyone you are looking to hire if they meet those standards.
Here are some restrictions that you need to review before hiring an aerial photographer:
- Drone may not be flown directly over people or animals
- Drone may not be flown over 400 feet
- Drone may not be flown in certain locations and in restricted air spaces unless the pilot is certified and obtains clearance from the FAA ahead of time
You can read more about restrictions here, https://www.faa.gov/uas/media/Part_107_Summary.pdf.
If you and/or the pilot break any of these restrictions, you and your photographer could be liable for damages and legal action taken by the FAA.
