Fresno Aerial Photography & Video

f550-nex5-450

So what does a wedding photographer like me do when I am not shooting weddings? The answer is my radio controlled cameras with an RC helicopter!  About 20 years ago I trained for and received a my private pilots license. I’ve always enjoyed flying and the view from above. Aerial photography allows me to combine flying with photography and video all together.

My RC aircraft is battery powered and quiet when flying. Flight times is as long as 20 minutes between battery changes.  For video and low resolution photos I use a stabilized GoPro Hero 3 black camera. For high resolution still images I utilize a Sony Nex 5n dslr camera with a 14 megapixel sensor. Most aerial photography work is done around 100′ above ground but I am able to go as high as 400′ and out to 1/3 of a mile from the take off point.  If you need aerial photos or video, please contact me!

Luis Jimenez - Hi Chris,

I´m a wedding photographer from Costa Rica and I got here to your site by your aerial Video of the engagement ring, which it pulled tears out of my eyes !! So amazing.

My question taking the oportunity is: what type of camera do you use to get those aerial photos and the video ?

Have you ever had any trouble while operating this aerial drone? I would love to get something like this but i´m a little worried about the image quality.

I´ll really apreciate If you respond to this

your work it´s amazing!

greetings
