Welcome to Oakland, California. “The Town” is home to some tremendous scenery that has long been overshadowed by its sister city, San Francisco. Here is an aerial tour and answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about flying a drone in Oakland

What Drone am I using for Bay Area Photography?

Below are some shots I was able to capture with my DJI Mavic Pro II Zoom. If you are in the market for a drone, I highly recommend this drone to every and anyone. Lightweight, portable, durable, and excellent image quality. If you can’t afford this model, DJI makes other cheaper and still very effective models.

When is Best Time to fly a Drone in Oakland?

It’s all based on perspective and style. For me and many others, about one hour or so before sunrise/sunset aka the golden hour, is the best time. The light isn’t too strong too overexpose your images, and some pleasing colors really start to shine in those time zones. Midday can be dull but it’s all based on your schedule and availability.

Why Should you visit Oakland?

Oakland is an energetic city of culture, food, and events. The city is great for any local or distant traveler as activities are diverse and food and drink options are abundant. Because it’s past has been rough, only the negative has been highlighted. Don’t sleep on Oakland.
