Volunteering Opportunity Details

  • Drone Photographer
    with Clear Buckhaven & Methil

    Volunteer Opportunity No. VO75628 - Created/last updated: 04/08/2020


    About this opportunity:CLEAR is wanting to gain an aerial overview of communicability gardens and may outreach planting sites where they have worked and will do more in future. The sites are all in the wider Buckhaven and Methil area but include the surrounding countryside, roadside verges as well as some community events. This would help not only record what has been done but also identify what more could be done by way of planing. Photos can also be used in informational and promotional work. They are looking for an experienced (or at least reasonably expert) drone operator/photographer to carry out this photographic survey. This can generally be done on days/times to suit although coverage of occasional community events would be helpful. It would be good to have photos of the same sites in different seasons. There are at least 15 main sites but many more smaller sites planted plus severe coastal erosion south of Buckhaven
