I am an FAA Certified Drone Pilot

I have passed my FAA Testing to be officially FAA Certified to fly a drone for commercial work.   Using a certified pilot is important, as it is against the law to fly a drone for commercial use unless you are certified under the FAA’s Part 107 regulations. There are many airports and different classes of airspace in the Denver metro area, and some places need ATC authorization to fly, and only a certified drone pilot can request authorization in those areas.

I made a Billboard!

This was for a realtor I worked with.   We did a studio shoot for her photo with the sign, and then I worked on the layout…and voila!  It appeared on I-25!    I used my Canon 5-DSR for the 50.2 megapixel count..which really helped. First draft   Small changes in layout before it went ‘live’ – by the recommendations of the billboard company.  It looks a little washed out as I was shooting from a long ways away, but in person it looked snazzy!

HD Virtual Tours for Real Estate

Here is a collection of some of my recent HD Virtual Tours for Real Estate.  Realtors love my tours, and find them to be more ‘elegant’ than Matterport tours, and can be more personalized and ‘branded’ to each realtor. This property is in North Boulder, Colorado, and was listed at 2M.    This was a funky artist’s house and studio (again in Boulder).  It had 4 separate apartments, a full art studio, and lots of ‘funk and charm’ included! Here is another that features a spoken intro by the realtor: <span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;”…

Challenge Aspen Golf & Gala 2017

I had so much fun doing photos and video for Challenge Aspen this month.  The event took place in Snowmass, and Aspen.   The St. Regis hosted the Gala and the Snowmass Golf Club hosted the Golf Event.  Vince Gill and Amy Grant were the great entertainment and hosts for the event! This is a photo/video mashup of the events:

Behind The Scenes Photos, Real Estate Photography
