NEWS!!!  FAA Releases Proposed Part 107 Guidelines!

If you live in the United States and want to earn money as a professional drone pilot, the only option you have right now is to operate under a Section 333 Exemption. If you don’t already have one, you’re out-of-luck until late-August when the FAA un-gates the Part 107 test and licensing process.

Featured on 6/21-6/22 Channel 8 News Segments:

Our company (also known as Tampa Bay Drones) was Awarded the 2016 Safety Harbor "Best Of" Award for Photography

 

Check to see if there is a FAA Exempted Drone Operator in your Area and/or Search by name to see if the person representing themselves as "legal" to do commercial drone operations actually HAS the FAA proper credential Click here to check (Note:  this does not mean they have commercial liability insurance, as for a COI (Certificate of Insurance) as well to ensure your drone operator has the proper credentials for safe operation.

 

May 27, 2015:  I am one of the FIRST Commercial Drone Operators in Pinellas County Florida to receive clearance from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) to use my Drones for Commercial use (333 Exemption for Aerial Data Collection).  This is approval to operate an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to conduct aerial imaging for safety, monitoring and comparing work efforts and completion percentages, and security of controlled environment of various sites as well as aerial Video and  Photography.

Professional Photographer/videographer with 22 plus years flight experience as a USAF Special Operations Aviator.  7 plus years in the world's most sophisticated Helicopter, The Mighty MH-53 Pave Low with the remainder of my flying years in the Incredible AC-130 Spectre Gunship.  Why not work with an aviation professional who most important item is SAFETY and can "read" the winds and do a good site study of the intended location to ensure the best flight path to obtain video footage and still photography ensuring your properties are apart from the rest with this exciting new technology!  ALL FAA RULES AND REGULATIONS ARE STRICTLY FOLLOWED!

I now have my 4th and most powerful Drone.  I now own 2ea DJI Inspire 1s.  I have 1 with the 2 controllers so I can have a seperate camera operator and Pilot for the ultimate in control and safety.  This is a HUGE upgrade!!!  It flies MUCH smoother and can fly in much heavier wind conditions, NO FISHEYE in videos or stills!  I have attached a link to a video I filmed on my 2nd day out with it.  Check it out:   https://youtu.be/wZXLv6bwTc8

What is a Drone?

Merriam Webster defines a "Drone" as an unmanned aircraft or ship guided by remote control. 
This IS NOT what I use for Real Estate/Land Surveys/Events!

 

Photo/Video Drones (or usually called Quadcopters..or more than 4 blade copters) can be both FUN as well as useful in many arenas of industry/commercial use of photo/video footage. 

 

What we do

 

My goal is to become the Tampa Bay’s most desired "go to guy" for quality real estate aerial video/stills.  The pricing structure is based on the travel distance, complexity of the job, size of property, danger to my equipment (drone), overwater flight requirements and of course your desire of video, still, or both.  The editing and presentation of the video product will encompass much of the time and effort.  The cost is for the final edited product ranges from $350-$500 for an average production.

 

We follow all FAA Rules and Regulations to ensure compliance and SAFETY to other aircraft, people, and property.

 

Please see my "Services" page for even more types of services offered.  Don't miss viewing my "Products" page to check out some of my recent work.  We are open to filming other ideas you may have, so please ask!

 

Show your customers a bird’s eye view taken from any height where they live, work or play. Real estate sales are increased by providing powerful images of surrounding terrain. Enhance your business presentations and advertising with unique, high-resolution images. 

REALTORS, For a FRESH marketing idea and/or a wonderful buyer/seller gift I present:

How about an aerial drone shoot yielding a framed dramatic high definition aerial photograph to be both given to the buyer to be given to as a really special “REALTOR THAT CARES” gift for the new Homeowners to have to treasure of their new home?  This would also be nice for the seller as a gift for selecting your firm and to remember you and their former home in Tampa Bay!  This would be easy to have printed at Walgreens or another printing location and placed in a modest frame for a truly personal gift that will be enjoyed much longer than a fruit basket or a bottle of wine!  Every time the homeowners look at it they would be reminded of your team and the awesome home you found for them.  Just a thought as I have seen several realtor gifts that are just “so-so” that will be easily forgotten by the client soon after the purchase/sale so why not give a gift that will be remembered and YOU will be remembered and referred.  Just a thought to ponder.  Last thing…a great gift for parents, friends, co-workers to have an aerial drone shoot of a special person's first home!!! I could do a great rate for a session of 25 aerial stills to choose from.
