I have been building and flying drones before it was cool to have one.
I work in the IT industry as a system engineer and enjoy flying for hobby or commercial in my spare time. I have build numerous r/c helicopters, quadcopters and fixed wing aircraft which i fly as a hobby. I also have a DJI Inspire 1 Pro and DJI Phantom 4 Pro which I use for commercial work. I took a couple photography courses in college and I apply much of what I learned to the aerial imagery I shoot with my drones.
I'm also the drone photographer for one of the top real estate photographers in Manhattan. I've taken drone images for a number of multi-million dollar homes as well as elevation photos for new construction.
In addition to roof inspections, panoramas, construction progress, I've recently done some RGB mapping as well as thermal mapping.
