Monrovia, famous for growing and distributing over 3,600 varieties of plants around the nation, invited Southern Oregon Drone to their nursery in Dayton, Oregon for a day of aerial photography. The shoot began at 6am, about 30 minutes before sunrise. Monrovia's sprinkler and irrigation system (which recycles about 90% of run-off... and they began doing this in 1970! Learn more about it here) set the stage for the perfect sunrise shots. It's amazing what a little lateral sunlight can do when it is shot into a fine spray of water...
Battery after battery after battery, we filmed until about 2:45pm. In total, Monrovia walked away with nearly 20GB of aerial photos and footage to use in everything from brochures to video ads. This footage was acquired both outside over their nursery and inside their growing facilities. These indoor shots were some of the more challenging tasks as a pilot because it required flying straight through long hemisphere-shaped structures called "hoop houses," each with a maximum of about 12 feet of clearance between the plants and the ceiling (see top image).
The day ended with a ground-based interview and short flights between intermittent rain and windstorms - a trademark theme of Oregon weather. The folks at Monrovia were very friendly and everyone shared an enthusiasm for Southern Oregon Drone being there, and we're looking forward to collaborating again in the future.
