Why I Fly Drones

1. The mental challenge is stimulating.

2. I love taking photographs and a drone opens up an entirely new perspective of seeing our beautiful world.

3. A drone photograph stimulates the viewer. Whether it is wonder, amazement, frustration, intrigue, etc. I like being able to provide that impact to others.

Flight Experience

As of this writing I’ve flown 488 times covering 2,208,530 linear feet, and been airborne for 73 hours all in one years time! The drone I operate now can fold up to the size of a 24oz soda bottle and stay airborne for 23 minutes.

I am a FAA licensed UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) Pilot. This allows me to legally provide services to others on a for-hire basis. Of course I’m insured as well.

My plan is to drone photograph many places around the globe and to produce beautiful books for all to enjoy.
