You don’t always need to use a drone to capture aerial 360 photos and videos. Mark Marano uses the Spiderbeam, a pole that extends to 12 meters (40 feet) for aerial shots without a drone.
Using a drone is not always possible or practical. One alternative for aerial photos or videos is pole photography. Spiderbeam is a durable fiberglass pole designed for professionals, available at lengths of 12 meters to 26 meters, and in the case of the 12 meter pole, it collapses to as short as 4 feet.
Mark used a 12-meter Spiderbeam for aerial 360 photos like the one above, and for aerial time lapse videos like this one:
To use the Spiderbeam with his 360 camera, Mark had to create his own attachment from parts available at hardware stores.
