Tye has been a photographer and cinematographer for 22 years and he brings that expertise to his drone clients. While there are many pilots flying drones, very few match his skill and experience behind the camera with a remarkable ability to also pilot a drone. This combination makes him the go to pilot when you need to get the shot.

Over the last 20 years, Tye has been leading creative teams to do unusually great things. From television ad campaigns across multiple platforms to personally designing graphics/animation and writing jingles for some of those ads, his trademark philosphy is to try to come at a challenge from a new perspective and create something that affects people on an emotional level. Tye is always trying to create something new, fresh and impacting.

Over the years Tye has worked as a News Photographer, Ad Agency Partner at Image Quest Media Services, Promotion Producer, Promotion Manager, Commercial Producer, Creative Services Director/Art Director and worked for the FOX Television Network in Los Angeles.
