Who is Riaan Huysamen

About Riaan | Experience & Partial CV with Background STORY:

Photography as a Hobbyist turned into a full-time job!

Riaan Huysamen started as a graphic designer creating visual art pixel for pixel and evolved into a professional photographer & videographer with over 20 years experience, specializing in construction sites, buildings, vessels at sea, majestic landscapes and corporate videography and much more. He stated his company BluePixels. The word Blue represent “far and above the horizon” as the ‘Sky’ is no longer the limit, and the word ‘Pixels’ for the dots that appear on all our screens and devices today. On these devices his clients can view for the art he has created.

Riaan has taken many photos from ground cameras, planes, helicopters and now drones. In 2010 he fell in love with RC Multi-Rotors known today as Drones or RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems), because these devices could now carry a camera to new heights, and reveal the world from a very Unique angle. He was one of the very first pioneers in South Africa to explore the use of Drones in various situations and applications.

For the next five years he explored and perfected the art and endeavored to be come the best Drone photographer & drone pilot combo possible with a style consisting of colourful, real to life and wow imagery. In 2010 there was no laws regulating the use of RC Multi-rotors / Drones in South Africa.

Commercial Drone Laws in South Africa:

Part 101 of the South African Civil Aviation Regulations, came into force only on the 1st July 2015, and South Africa became one of the first countries to have comprehensive drone laws. This placed South Africa as a world leader in drone/RPAS regulations, and many other countries have followed suit.

Photographers/Videographers & the Film industry who used drones commercially at this stage had to tools down until the could get a legal ROC&ASL. (Rpas Operating Certificate and Air-Service License.) This would take many companies another 3 to 5 years to be able to become legal  drone operators.
