I have been operating remotely piloted aircraft since 1986 and performed with a nationally sponsored Air Show Team for 12 years. I started AirMax Imaging June 2016 and received the FAA107 certification the 2nd day it was available, August 30th 2016. I am also a Sim/Flight Line Instructor with Dronitech. I have a good working knowledge many of the major commercial flight apps. DJI Go, Litchi, Pix4D, Ground Staion Pro, AirNest and the one I have used the most for mapping and 3D Modeling - Drone Deploy. Other apps - B4UFly, Hover, AirMap, Flight Service, SkyVector.

The Most Important?
The project I am currently on. While I am on site, I am there for that client's time. If I do not answer the phone, I am most likely flying, please leave a message or text. I will return your call as soon as possible.

The most fun?
My daughter races so, most of my videos that I may publish are at the race track. Any type of sporting event is challenging, you can't "do it again". Best bet is to use several cameras, cover as many angles as possible and record constantly.

The Most Interesting?
The project I am currently working on. Each site is unique, with the area of focus and flying environment. Many will fit a standard pattern but each needs to be adjusted for the best result. It could be obstructions that need to be worked around or using the proper drone for the shot. It is this process that I enjoy.

There would be 2. Governors Cup and Truck Mania. I used all 3 drones, 4 ground cameras and cell phone video. It is impossible to put it all in a short video.


If you've read this far .... I appreciate your consideration.

I would highly highly recommend Brian to anyone seeking incredible Drone footage. I cannot express enough how impressed I was with the incredible work done by this pilot. His skilled expertise in maneuvering the drone and capturing various angles provided me with a clear and comprehensive view of my property.

Hired AirMax Imaging to capture a variety of shots of the grand opening at the new bike park in Placerville, CA. Brian delivered over 80 images and 3 video files of the event. All the images of the park are just like we needed. The images of people riding the jump lines could have been taken with a faster shutter speed to get rid of the motion blur of the riders.
