Creative Brief: Agricultural Aerials


Keyword Code: AERIALOCT2018

Whether the images are captured from the air or on land, agriculture is another prime category that is always in demand. Agriculture images taken from the air, however, have a particularly long shelf life. In other words, a “wheat field will always be a wheat field,” so you don’t have to be concerned with your images having an expiration date.
