Chicago Aerial Photography via Full-size Aircraft or Drones

I have been offering aerial photography for my clients for years. Usually this involves big budgets and lots of restrictions. I have been flying radio controlled helicopters, airplanes and multi-rotors for years. They make great aerial photography platforms except they were banned from commercial use - until recently.

Due to a recent ruling I can now fly for commercial use. NTSB judge rules FAA ban on commercial UAS/Drones unenforceable

If you are looking for an experienced aerial photographer with years of flying please contact me.

Below are some examples of my work.

Aerial photo from Quadcopter Chicago Gourmet at Millennium Park, Chicago, IL 2013NOTE: I am an experienced pilot and I never flew over people and I had a spotter with me at all times. These images were created by flying line-of-sight with the aircraft at all times and with various safety measures. Although some very dramatic images can be created this way safety comes first.

Video is also possible. Please contact me for a quote.
