Tom got into the aerial photography business from the “photo” side. He had worked as an apprentice for a prominent wedding and portrait photographer in NC during college and after earning an MBA at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington, he started SkyShots Photography as a part-time venture. In 1999 Tom went full-time as an aerial photographer in Richmond, Virginia. After earning his pilot’s license in 2004 Tom became interested in developing the artistic side of his work. Tom was one of the first in the country to receive his 333 Exemption and now also has the Part 107 license. Today, Tom is able to focus on the needs of his customers and provides them with the best possible aerial and architectural images.
