Helicopter Aerial Photography

Helicopter Based Photography

  • Helicopter based photography provides a perfect mid to low altitude view for any type of project.
  • More costly, but able to use the highest resolution 51 megapixel DSLR cameras and telephoto lenses for the best aerial shots possible.
  • Due to the speed of the aircraft, helicopters are a great option for covering many projects across a large area.
  • Perfect for doing aerials in congested urban areas or for projects located within busy airspace where drones and fixed wing aircraft are not as effective or will not work at all.
  • Ability to get waivers for aerial flights inside the SFRA (Special Flight Rules Area) around Washington DC.
  • Jobs start at $600 per hour.

 Drone Aerial Photography

DJI Inspire 2 Drone

  • Photography from a drone provides a low altitude perspective (below 400')  that often can't be achieved from a full size aircraft.
  • More affordable than full size helicopters, yet able to get much lower than fixed wing aircraft.
  • We fly most projects with our professional 21 megapixel DJI Inspire 2 Quadcopter with a Zenmuse X5S Camera and varying lenses depending on the need of the job.
  • FAA Part 107 compliant with a Remote Pilot Airman Certificate.
  • Licensed and Insured for commercial drone photography.
  • Unable to do drone photography within 15 miles of Washington DC.
  • Jobs start at $200 per hour.

Fixed Wing Aerial Photography

Fixed Wing

  • Fixed Wing Aerial Photography is more affordable than using a helicopter yet can go much higher than drones for high altitude projects such as real-estate, commercial development, large highway projects, bridges etc.
  • Perfect for wide angle aerial photos covering large areas of land.
  • While you can't go as low or slow as a helicopter, you can still capture very nice photos from fixed wing aircraft using telephoto lenses and 51 megapixel DLSR cameras, so fixed wing is a great affordable option for a wide range of photography needs.
  • Jobs start at $300 per hour.
