Personally, I feel that the greatest issue with the use of UAV's for photography/videography is the loss of privacy (commercial or otherwise.) As much as it pains me to say this (and this is just an example) think of celebrities. They already have to deal with the paparazzi sticking cameras in their face everywhere they go. If the paparazzi are allowed to use UAV's to take pictures even peoples homes will no longer be private and we all deserve at least some privacy.
Now, take this example of celebrities and apply it to yourself. Let's say you find yourself the subject of a local news piece, would you really want the reporters to be able to place a camera outside your bedroom window, kitchen window, etc to watch your every move and saw the world what you are doing very day? My guess would be, "no."
These are just my opinions, but privacy is already getting harder and harder to come by, what with your smart phone knowing where you are at all times and all the other technology out there to "make your life easier." Public safety should be of concern, but a lack of privacy could lead to a lack of personal safety.
