Aerial Drone Photography
Using unmanned aerial systems (UAS), better known as drones, is an ideal solution for capturing high resolution aerial photographs at lower altitudes. Drone photography is generally between 20 – 200 feet, with a maximum ceiling of 400 feet to remain compliant with current FAA regulations.
We take the time to learn about your specific project needs before every shoot, to ensure that we get the exact right angles and altitudes. If you require photographs from altitudes higher than we can fly with a drone, or if nearby structures or highly populous areas rule out the use of a drone, we can also provide aerial photographs from a full-size helicopter or small airplane to meet your needs. For example, the TCU track photo was taken from a helicopter, because the leadership at TCU did not yet have a policy in place regarding the use of drones on campus. We still were able to capture the image from the lower altitude that the client requested (approximately 300 feet), and the resulting photo is a show-stopper.
