This camera drone in Bavaria is used by a television production team.

When Tina Turner got married at her Switzerland estate in late July 2013, she wanted to keep paparazzi away, but photographers used manned and unmanned aircraft to seek lucrative exclusives.

In the race for an exclusive wedding picture, freelance photographer Claudio Meier came up cold. The freelance photographer equipped himself with the latest technology and launched a remote-controlled drone in front of Turner's estate. Meier wanted to fly the aircraft, a so-called quadrocopter, over Turner's extravagant garden to get a good shot of the event.

The use of drones is less strictly regulated in Switzerland than many other parts of the world. Nevertheless, the police forced the photojournalist to land the drone and confiscated the memory card from his camera. Meier complains that the action seriously hampered his work. He also says there was another photographer who also tried to use a drone to photograph the wedding guests, among them Bryan Adams and Oprah Winfrey.
