We specialize in medium to high-end real estate in both aerial and ground photography (interior and exterior) and videography disciplines, construction progression stills, videos and reports, marketing collateral such as B-roll for web and television commercials, documentaries, documentation and asset inspections, and consultant services for establishing internal drone programs for companies such as engineering firms.

While we are a young company, we come to the industry with a great deal of experience and love for our craft. Our owner and chief pilot, Robert S. Jones Jr., as a historic preservationist with a Master of Fine Arts degree from Savannah College of Art and Design, has over 20 years of experience in shooting architectural photography and possesses over 5 years of UAS (drone) photography and videography experience. After all, a drone is a platform that can carry a camera in 3 dimensions, but as a pilot we need to know what we are doing in the flight safety aspects of a mission, but then you need to get the most out of the camera or sensor you are flying to produce good data, video and photos and their is a trained art and gained knowledge to doing this properly.

Jones has logged over 80 hours in the air as a commercial pilot with over 240 missions flown on multiple air frames within the last 2 years as a certified FAA SUAS pilot under Part 107. We are fully insured for liability up to $1,000,000 (greater amounts can be obtained if a particular job requires it).
