Our first client was National Geographic. What an amazing and memorable way to start a business! The day of the shoot began well before the break of dawn. A dense layer of fog rested atop the waterways as the sun crested the horizon. It was a picture-perfect morning.
We worked diligently with the NatGeo producer and cinematographer to map out each and every shot. The “bird’s eye” footage was ultimately used to produce a series of television commercials to promote a documentary showcasing the Prairie Pothole region of the Great Plains.
We are FAA approved to fly small, unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAVs) to capture aerial imagery (Exemption #11579, Regulatory Docket FFA-2015-0371). All of our pilots are active members of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), as well as licensed FAA pilots or certified UAV pilots through FlySafe, the nation's leader in UAV pilot education.
