Taking Flight: A Videographer's Journey to New Heights on the Ice

As a videographer with over a decade of experience and a former ice hockey player, I recently rediscovered my passion for the sport and started making ice hockey trainings. But I didn't stop there - I decided to up my game by experimenting with my filming skills on ice while skating using a gimbal and a drone.

Well this is me, a veteran starting hockey trainings after 15 years of a break

Excited to try out my DJI Mavic Air drone, I headed to the ice rink to capture some epic footage. I vividly remember the first time I flew a drone in an ice hockey rink. It was an exhilarating feeling to soar over the rink, capturing stunning footage from a whole new perspective.

However, my excitement was short-lived as I realized that the sensors on my drone were limiting the altitude. Below is the video I made using the footage from my first flight experience on ice.

This experience taught me that sometimes, you have to take risks and push boundaries to achieve something truly great. As a videographer, it's my job to capture the most compelling footage possible, and that means going above and beyond what's expected. And with the right equipment and a little bit of creative problem-solving, it's amazing what you can achieve.

So if you're facing limitations in your own work, don't be afraid to try something new and think outside the box. Who knows what incredible results you might be able to achieve?
