Salesforce Tower Drone Photo - Kara MurphyKara Murphy was one of the lucky few to be able to fly sky high in the dead centre of San Francisco, and has captured some dynamite photos of the cityscape. My personal favourite after checking out her site is this photo of the Salesforce Tower while it was under construction.

Kara also recommends flying with two of the same drone, specifically the Phantom 4 Pro that she brings to every job. Listen in as she discusses how having a backup drone can be a life saver and ensure that you get the job done. Kara also raves about how awesome the P4P is, and how she’s able to adjust the camera settings to get the quality drone shots that you see on her site.

Kara is working in real estate, as well as selling fine art prints of her drone photos. She’s currently selling them individually, but is working on setting up an Etsy site to hopefully reach a larger audience. I bet some of you are thinking of setting up the same after hearing the success that she’s been having selling her photos.
