Preparing for a Spring Sale

Spring is here, and with it will come many people trying to sell their homes. This is traditionally the time that the market is deluged with new listings.

When potential buyers and realtors are looking over the MLS properties, aerial shots of houses can tell much more about the area around the home.

Air Aspects Photos in Print (again)

Air Aspects photos of an old Virginia tide mill were used for an interesting article in the House and Home magazine.  It’s great seeing my work in print again.  No matter how many times I see them, it never gets old.

New Year, New Rules

On December 31, 2019, the FAA published a proposal outlining new rules enabling a system to track all drone flights in the USA.

The proposal, released in the interest of public safety and awareness, has a few items that have many drone pilots very unhappy and some on the verge of leaving the hobby.

Aerial Shoot for a Rental Property in Cape Charles, VA

A beautiful sunny day for a rental house shoot just north of Cape Charles.  This was an interesting shoot because the owner is applying to be a wedding/event location, and needed a visual representation of where things would be in relation to neighbors. 

Aerial Shoot in Currituck, NC

Construction is starting on the Currituck Public Safety Building.  This will be a fun ongoing project, taking regular photos of progress.

Warriors Rest Wounded Warrior Hunt 2019


A visit to Cambridge Maryland to video the 2019 Warriors Rest Waterfowl Hunt. 

It was a great time,  but SO cold thanks to a Canadian arctic blast.  The video was produced from over 12 hrs of footage from 6 cameras, and is for their YouTube channel, and also for their website.

Virginia Beach Aerial Construction Shoot

A sunny day construction aerial shoot for Armada Hoffler, who have 2 projects under construction on 27th St., Virginia Beach.  

This project involved a few more hoops to jump through;  I had to apply for a special 2 year waiver from the FAA, and have to stay in contact with the tower at nearby Oceana Naval Air Station.

Drones as Gifts and What You Need to Know

    It’s that time of year again, and, as in most recent years, drones are sure to be one of the hottest selling items in the stores and online.

    However, before you rush out to get one for yourself or a friend or child, there are some things you need to know about owning drones. 

    1. Where does the owner live - Many larger drones available now have what is called geofencing in them.  Basically they have GPS, and will not fly anywhere there is a no-fly zone in operation.
    If the person you’re buying a drone for lives within 30 miles of Washington DC for example,  they are going to have a tough time trying to fly, even on their own property as the drone may not even power up.
