You’ll find our prices for drone photography and videography are affordable, competitively priced, and the quality an excellent value. No worries about compliance with government laws and commercial insurance – we’ve taken care of all that for you. Our drone pilot is FAA certified and we carry liability insurance. Have peace of mind that you will receive professional service and great drone photography and videography.

How many photos or how much video do you want per in-flight session? We have no limit, other than the battery’s flight time. We’ll take as many photos and videos as you request and deliver them at the end of the flight session by direct download or on a USB thumb drive. Do you want up to 18 minutes of HD video for your in-flight session? How about 100 or more photos? No problem. (Same goes for our land sessions.)

You may want to consider our post-processing services. Your photos and videos will be adjusted for brightness, contrast, and color balance. In addition, your videos will go through an advanced stabilization “filter” that reduces shake and vibration. Delivery is instant via Dropbox, a file download service (more on this delivery method below).

Hourly Rates

Instant File Downloads

We use Dropbox.com to deliver your post-production photo and video files. You won’t need to set up an account. We upload your files and send you a link so all you need to do is click on the download button to receive them.

When two or more files are delivered, we use 9Zip, a Windows 10 application. You won’t need to install it on your computer or smart device. We add your files into one “Zip” file and upload it to Dropbox. The Zip file you download will display like a folder in Windows 10. You can open, play, and copy your photo and video files to wherever you need them.

Smart devices, such as iOS and Android, treat the Zip file a little differently. Use your file explorer to find the zip file, typically in the Download folder. Then select each (or all) and extract them. Your files will be found in the Download folder and can be opened, played, and copied to wherever you need them.
