Catskills Drone Photography and Videography
I'm a local, independent, FAA-licensed, fully-insured Remote Pilot ("commercial drone pilot") with a Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems rating.
My home base is in Delaware County, New York; and I provide professional aerial photography and videography services throughout New York's Catskill Mountain Region and the surrounding areas.
My usual service area includes the New York counties of Delaware, Otsego, Schoharie, Greene, Ulster, and Sullivan. I'll also consider assignments in other parts of Central New York or the Southern Tier.
As an independent operator, I can provide lower-cost aerial-imaging services than drone pilots who work through referral agencies. In some cases, those agencies make more money on a job than the pilots who actually do the work.
I don't have those expenses. I deal directly with my customers. There's no "middle man" taking a piece of the pie.
Aerial Imaging Services
I provide aerial photography and/or videography services throughout New York's Catskill Mountain Region, as well as the nearby Finger Lakes and Hudson Valley areas. The specific aerial imaging services I provide include:
- Real Estate Aerial Imaging. I accept assignments from sellers, agents, brokers, and potential buyers. Whether you're selling a property, or live far away and are looking to buy property in the Catskills, I can help you out.
- Loss Documentation for Insurance Claims. Low-altitude drone photos or videos can help you document losses for insurance claims if a tree falls through your roof or a hailstorm damages your fleet of vehicles. If your insurance agent asks you for drone pictures or videos of your damages, give me a call.
- Aerial Photos and Videos for Advertising. I will take aerial photographs of your business that you can use for television commercials, Web sites, brochures, calendars, or whatever other purpose you have in mind.
I also will consider other types of assignments.
In addition, I take aerial stock photos and videos of New York's Southern Tier. You can browse through my SkyStock Portfolio if you're just looking for some pictures or videos of the Catskills and Hudson Valley regions.
The Back Story
I'm a semi-retired IT geek with a lifelong passion for aviation and photography. I've been taking pictures since I was nine years old, and have been involved in aviation in some capacity or another since the 1970s. I presently hold FAA certificates as both a Remote Pilot ("commercial drone pilot") and an Aircraft Mechanic.
At some point in my semi-retirement, it occurred to me that I could combine my lifelong interests in photography and aviation by buying a drone and using it for aerial photography and videography.
It also occurred to me that making money doing something I was doing for fun anyway had no down side; so that's what I did. I earned an FAA Part 107 certificate, bought a professional-quality drone, took out a commercial aviation insurance policy, and built this site.
For more information about my professional aerial imaging services, please contact me. I'm a one-man show, so please understand that it may be a few hours (rarely longer than that) before I get back to you. Thanks!
