I flew the F/A-18 Hornet for the Marine Corps for 12 years while simultaneously flying drones on the side. This has given me a wide range of experience on the aviation spectrum. I currently fly the Parrot Anafi Thermal and the DJI Mavic 2 Pro which are capable of delivering visible and infrared imagery. I am Part 107 rated and insured. I have experience in the following projects:

- Real Estate photography
- Roof inspections (Loveland Innovations)
- Golf Course inspections (Terraview)
- Agriculture inspections (NDVI capable)
- Small business website development
- Powerline and construction inspections and mapping (Drone Deploy)

I fly my drones legally and safely with an emphasis on timely results. Please give me a call for your aerial photography needs.

This was our first time using a pilot in the panhandle area of FL, and Gulf Coast Aerial Imagery did a great job for us. Steve kept in communication with us during the whole process, and was very professional. It was an overall great experience and we will for sure be using them next time.
