The explosive growth of the drone industry now means that filmmakers and videographers can capture immersive views unlike ever before. As Shutterstock customers are increasingly looking for aerial imagery to support their projects, the company is working to enhance its collection with this type of content.
Shutterstock is expanding its aerial footage collection in a new distribution deal that will deliver hundreds of high-quality 4K videos produced by the largest global drone operations company, DroneBase. From a soaring bird’s-eye view of the biggest cities in the world to incredible coastline vistas, all of this immersive content is now available to license for commercial use on Shutterstock.
DroneBase’s network of professional drone pilots will provide all kinds of high-quality aerial video content. With its global network of pilots in all 50 states and in over 70 countries, the DroneBase collection includes 4K video from all over the world, including Australia, Austria, Bermuda, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Italy, Jamaica, Malta, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Tanzania, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The recent growth of aerial technology (particularly drones with 4K cameras) has transformed the production industry by offering crystal-clear, cinema-quality footage without the cost of a professional pilot and aircraft — and drones can even reach places helicopters and airplanes never could. Drone industry growth is expected to continue, and Shutterstock is committed to providing the best footage that the new technology can offer.
