Aerial Photography+Video for projects like Real Estate Photography / Estate photography, Construction Site progress documentation, Manufacturing Facilities overviews, Business applications and so on.
Aerial Photography with a drone
The FAA oversees UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and their use and gave ‘green light’ for a broad commercial use on June 21, 2016. Aerial photography and video is part of that allowed use. If you have a project that could benefit from aerial photography / video, please contact me for details.
I am a FAA certified pilot and licensed for commercial flights. Also insured for commercial UAV operations.
UAV operations are performed in compliance with FAA rules and that includes checking of up-to-date NOTAMs (Notices to Airmen) and TFR (Temporary Flight Restrictions). Tell me about your project and I explain applicable regulations and possible restrictions.
All pricing here based on the assumption that no overhead for obtaining flight permissions (ATC, City, and so on) or waivers and clearances are required for the project. Please note that applying for and obtaining waivers, permissions, clearances, etc. can involve much time and some authorities require applications several weeks ahead the project start.
Pricing aerial packages:
- Aerial Photos (standalone, no other Photo / Video Packages booked): $240.oo; Discount available in combination with land-based photo shoot
- Aerial Video (includes taking several photos) (standalone, no other Photo / Video Packages booked): pricing starts at $350.oo
The video length is also dependent on the project / property size. For smaller or simpler coverage areas it makes no sense to produce a lengthy video. If the project is more complex or the coverage area larger or things like that, a video can be longer, too. A good video tells the story, gives all the information, and is not boring. The video has to have the length that fits the content and story.
Bundling an Aerial Package with my other services like Still Photos or (Surface) Video creates synergy effects and I can offer significant discounts. See also: Real Estate projects / Architectural projects
Above pricing is based on a certain amount of time reserved for drone operation (incl. setup, flight, orientation) on location; for large properties / Estates, commercial buildings, or construction sites prices can be slightly higher – let me know details.
These pricing information are ballpark figures and for a binding quote I need your input on the type of project / property and your goals. Best is to email me the details inclusive the property address since I have to check for airspace and location restrictions.

Aerial shots as Wall Art
Aerial photos make excellent wall art, no matter if you decide for a canvas or metal print or just a normal paper print. Contact me for available images and options — let me know what you are looking for.
But not only aerial shots, I have hundreds of other motives… landscapes, cityscapes, animals, and so on.
With that flavor of aerial photography and video the photos are taken not with an aircraft or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) but with a camera that is mounted on a pretty long pole or in cases positioned on higher ground (or both).
A 3-axis gimbal mount for the camera eliminates blur and shake effects.
That type of aerial photography works for certain situations but not for all.
I am hearing the question “Why bother carrying around a cumbersome pole if you have a UAV”? Well, more and more restrictive regulations are set in place all the time and for several situations you just can’t use the little drone, so …, last resort is the extendible pole.
