Jim's launches drone business
Well-known franchise group Jim’s has established a new division: Jim’s Photography and Drones.
The brainchild of two photographers, Mark Hill and Matteo Rizzi, the duo intend to establish 'the most trusted national photographic services brand in Australia,' and are currently inviting expressions of interest from potential franchisees.
“Jim’s Photography and Drones will offer the convenience, reliability and professionalism associated with other Jim’s divisions and could, in a very short space of time, be recognised as the only national photography brand in the country.”
Approximately two thirds of the franchisees are expected to be women.
“Female professional photographers now outnumber men 3:2 and as such, we anticipate 60% of Jim's Photography and Drones franchisee's will be women,” explained Mr Hill.
Jim’s intends to offer drone services for air sampling, agriculture, mining, mapping, 3D modelling, surveying, building inspections and 'many other applications'.
All Jim’s Photography and Drones franchisees will be required to join the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) as part of their registration.
Jim's say an independent committee will assess all applicants on the strength of their photographic portfolio, business acumen and people skills.
