Leading Australian ag drones speaker joins Outback Aerodrone program

·       Want to know more about putting drones to work on Australian farms & cattle stations?

·       Interested in finding out how to achieve the best results from drone photography?

·       Ready to get your drone questions answered at an event right on your doorstep?

Bringing hands-on experience in the ag industry, an extensive career as an award winning photographer, and a practical understanding of the benefits of drones for Australian producers, we're pleased to have Fiona Lake join our program.  

Fiona Lake is a professional photographer and writer known for her pioneering rural advocacy. Her multi-strand business includes book publishing, photography commissions and overseas farm tours. Earlier this year our Ambassador to the US, Joe Hockey, opened Fiona's exhibition in Australia's Washington DC Embassy. 
 
Fiona has won many awards over her three decade career and this year her Rural Drone Academy project was an AgriFutures Rural Women's Award finalist. She was the first Australian to judge the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists annual photography award and in September she will be the first Australian presenter at America's largest commercial drone expo, InterDrone.  
 
Fiona started taking aerial photographs in 1988 and is now one of just 16 Australian women who are fully licenced drone pilots. Fiona has been running workshops across rural Australia to help boost numbers as she sees many small business opportunities for residents.
 
She is keen to point out that at present we have more female shearers than fully licenced female drone pilots - and this needs changing - as diverse industries are healthier.
