Meet EPACENTER Intern Enrique, 17

Enrique currently attends Tide Academy and after attending College Track in East Palo Alto, saw EPACENTER being built and was curious to learn more. After learning Photoshop Photography, Enrique joined EPACENTER’S Drone Photography internship.

What are you working on right now?

We’re editing footage for an upcoming EPACENTER commercial.

What was it like flying the drone for the first time?

It’s like driving a car, you have to be comfortable in order enough in order for it to go smoothly — but the controls are really sensitive. It takes some getting used to for sure.

What is the coolest thing you’ve learned in your internship thus far?

Frank (drone photography instructor) taught us the theories behind video production — like how to evoke emotions through video and music.

What do you want to do next, following your Drone Photography Internship?

I’m saving up for my own drone right now and to get my commercial drone license, making drone photography its own business. I’m doing some handheld photography for events like birthday parties right now, but am excited to use drones 

What do you want people to know about drone photography?

Technically we’re pilots — people don’t really think about drones like that — because many people have never seen this type of technology before. Drones are definitely gonna become more popular.
