Tal made a career in the Israeli high-tech industry as entrepreneur, but he recently discovered a passion for aerial photography and especially video editing.
In his own words, “I quickly realized that the most important thing in making a film is to tell a story, in my case the story of Israel. Our history is so ancient and powerful that I only need to infuse it with my passion in order to evoke strong emotions in my viewers. The most exciting thing for me as video creator is receiving all the touching comments about Israel and my aerial photography.”
Tal uses a drone to get his best shots. The drone is equipped with four blades that can fly as far as several kilometers. A camera is installed in the drone to take stills, and the video quality is controlled by remote radio which shows the anticipated top-live. The drone utilizes various forms of technology, such as GPS, and different controllers that ensure maximum stability and control.
The drone is a great gadget for those looking for a combination of technology and photography.
With the drone, Tal is able to take still photos and videos of landscapes, buildings, and more across the country.

Caesarea Marina was built in Roman-ruled Judea under the Jewish client king Herod the Great during c. 20–10 BCE near the ruins of a small naval station known as Stratonos pyrgos (Straton's Tower), founded by Straton I of Sidon. It was likely an agricultural storehouse station in its earliest configuration. In 90 BCE, Alexander Jannaeus captured Straton's Tower as part of his policy of developing the shipbuilding industry and enlarging the Hasmonean kingdom.
