I began my remote pilot career as a Forester in Western Oregon. My projects often took place deep in the Coast Range or High Cascades where I had the amazing opportunity to film some of the most spectacular settings Oregon has to offer. These opportunities often came with significant challenges like steep terrain and unpredictable weather which has taught me the value of thorough pre-flight planning and equipment management.
I have always had a deep interest in photography and I feel like drones have taken this passion to a whole new level (no pun intended). One of my favorite aspects of flying drones is how imaginative clients get when they see a drone in action. I realize this new technology comes with its share of reservations but it has been my experience that for every person I meet who is skeptical about this new technology, I meet many more individuals who are fascinated by what I am doing. This fascination often gets people's imaginations running wild and it seems as if everyone has their own unique ideas for drone flights and I love hearing this feedback when I'm out flying in the community.
If you have a project that would benefit from aerial imagery, please contact me, I absolutely love to share my expertise and look forward to working with you!
