Location and aerial photographer based in Virginia near Washington, DC. Worldwide travel experience for a healthy mix of editorial and commercial clients. As a location and aerial photographer, I've learned the importance of pre-planning for every possibility in a shoot. In 1990, I earned my private pilots license to become a better aerial photographer and understand the language of aviation. In addition to a worldwide network of film industry helicopter pilots, I also shoot aerials via drones. I hold a FAA 107 drone certificate, North Carolina Commercial Operator Certificate and a Private Pilot certificate. I am fully-insured.
For me, its all about working as a team: planning, executing and being ready to embrace the rare gift of grace: beautiful light, incredible talent and those fleeting moments that tell the story.
I am a lucky man: a wonderful wife who is much smarter than me, six books published, clients that trust me and a U.S. Postage stamp to boot.
