High end aerial photography is one of my specialties and I offer two options to obtain the shots you need, a conventional airplane or a 40' lift.
The towable 40’ lift, offers an unprecedented alternative to traditional aerial photography. The lift is a stable platform which is great for long exposure evening photography and video production. I specifically purchased this lift for it’s smooth and quiet operation from ground level to 40’ and 360 degree rotation.
Oblique aerials, photos taken at an angle, are often the most desirable and difficult to accomplish from a conventional airplane. With my lift, producing a perfect oblique photo is more accessible and less costly than an airplane. Taking one exterior shot of a high end home is now cost effective when in the past you would need to cover the costs of the photographer, pilot and airplane expenses.
The lift offers a unique vantage point for many common scenarios. Employees in front of a building, a sports team on a field, home and business exteriors, outdoor lot inventory, events and more.
Often there is no supplement for a conventional airplane in the hands of a every capable pilot and photographer. I have one pilot I choose to fly with, who flies Boeing 777s internationally and can handle a plane with extreme precision. If we need to be over one spot and take a series of images we can handle it, which is no easy task and takes hours of practice. Controlled airspace, large cities, both no problem. We fly a Cessna 172 with the window open, which makes a great aerial platform. I have tried many airplanes and a few helicopters and I am always happy to be in the Cessna to get the job done. Additional aerial photos are available in the Portfolio section.
