Drone Cinematography is my passion where i constantly search to capture storytelling videos and photos. Maintaining high safety standards while abiding by FAA Rules, I am still able to push the limits of my aircraft to capture unique vision of my environment.
I have flown during numerous Counter UAS Experiments through out many Military Bases and US cities such as downtown New Orleans LA, Dallas TX, and several months testing security measures at the US Capitol, Washington DC, in preparation for the 2016 Inauguration.
My primary aircraft is the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom, touting a gimbaled, zoomable 4K camera. I also utilize Polarized ND filters for optimal results.
The love of aviation, especially Unmanned Aircraft is a passion of mine and safety of flight is always my top focus. I love capturing unique aerial videos and photos that make people say "WOW, That is awesome!". I have been flying small Military drones in combat zones since 2008 and also numerous commercial off the shelf systems since their inception to the market. Below are my certification / training:
