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 18 minutes of HD video for your in-flight session? How about 100 or more photos? No problem. (Same goes for our land sessions.)

We include adjusting your photos for brightness, contrast, color balance, etc. using our high-end image processing software. In addition, you may want to consider our post-processing services that include client-specified editing and finished video package(s). We can digitally “zoom in,” crop, animate stills, adjust colors, and remove shake and vibration. Delivery is instant via download using our cloud service.

When you hire FAD-Photo, you’re working with the best! Why? We’ve invested heavily in professional software products and have developed our own proprietary software to precisely plan and control our aerial drone flights. We KNOW drone operations like no other  drone business!
