I started my career as a photographer in 1972 freelancing for the Atlanta Journal and Constitution I moved on to owning my own studio/lab, shooting news stories, portraits, weddings, events, and pretty much everything else. I have also always tried to give back by helping with police, fire, and ems services on a pro bono basis. I started flying full-sized aircraft when I was twenty, commercially at twenty-three. Flying and photography have always been my passion and I have always felt blessed to be able to pursue my passions in concert. I bought my first quadcopter in 2013 as a hobby, but it quickly became much more than that. I began building and flying my own RC aircraft so I could photograph locations from different perspectives. When commercial licenses for UAVs became available, I became a professional drone pilot, working with real estate brokers, surveyors, farmers, chambers of commerce, and event planners. I still love doing volunteer work for local police, fire, and ems organizations, and also work with two SAR (search and rescue) platforms as well as a host of UAV and pilot-based organizations. When it comes to this business safety and meticulous attention to detail have helped me acquire many new clients. I have turned down quite a few as well when asked to do something which was illegal or with which I was uncomfortable. Education of my clients is, to me, an equally important part of my business. I am still passionate about flight and photography, separately and in tandem, and will continue to do both as long as I'm alive and well.
