Upon completing the knowledge exam and receiving the FAA Part 107 certificate and got my first paying job within a couple weeks. A shot from that first job went all the way up to be the photo that made up the cover of the local phone book. I prefer to do photography, but can do cinematography if needed. Rates vary depending on the job, but are fairly reasonable. For the past 2 years I have been doing aerial surveys for solar work which are not posted on this website.
