sUAS operator Nigel King was awarded a Fellowship, the highest level of membership in the BIPP (British Institute for Professional Photographers).   The unanimous decision to make this level of award for work in the Scientific category was a very pleasant surprise for him . As an award that requires “extremely high levels of technical and creative ability” it gave welcome credence to the years of his work dedicated to flying, photography and the UAV industry.
