Accidents do happen, and if you’re flying illegally, you can expect a knock at the door.

A California man ignored the FAA’s drone regulations whilst vacationing in Las Vegas. Not only was he flying in restricted airspace without permission, but he lost control of his drone, drifting away and landing next to an active runway at Las Vegas’ main airport. 

Now he is facing nearly $20,000 in fines from the federal government.

Pretty day for an aerial real estate shoot of a waterfront property on Albacore Key in Virginia Beach. 

There were an awful lot of trees on the property (trees are an aerial photographer’s nightmare), but I still managed to weave my way through them to get some cool shots.

Great day shooting for a ’For Sale By Owner’ property in Chesapeake, VA.  Even though the trees were a bit bare, I think I captured the feel of the property.
Inside video and aerial video were then used to make the video.

Awesome time shooting aerial video and photos for the Grotto Bay Beach Resort and Spa, in Bermuda.  Several shoots encompassing not only the resort, but also several locations around Bermuda, and some other businesses like a sunset cruise catamaran.
