The entire immediate Washington D.C. area is in a “no drone zone”, in a 15 mile radius from DCA.

Are there ways to get an exemption for activities such as film making, property inspections, etc?


Yes. This page comes up on a quick Google search.

Flying an unmanned aircraft within the 15-mile radius inner ring is prohibited without specific FAA authorization.

Experienced Part 107 and public aircraft operators with justification can file your request through the on-line Access Program (AAP) https://waivers.faa.gov
