Some examples of typical projects.

Video/Photo for Events;

Marathons and other Runs benefit from interesting and creative video coverage.  Photos are concurrently captured, so they will be available along with video for the event.  Some Video  Other Interesting video;  Beach Video

Real Estate

Photos and Video can be combined with GIS based imagery to create an informative Virtual Tour of a property.  Interior, Exterior, and aerial photos/video can often be incorporated into a comprehensive production.  Farms and Ranches especially lend themselves well to aerial and GIS coverage.                                                                                               Sample Video

Special Projects   Beach / Coastal Erosion, and Monitoring

Over the past several years, there has been a growing interest in comparing the appearance of the coast over time.   Before and After shots reveal changes that otherwise would be missed, or can not be quantified in any meaningful way.  Photos, GIS measurements and mapping combined become useful in creating a history of natural progression to better understand and convey findings to interested parties.  By having a working relationship with several  organizations, scientists and engineers, relevant imagery can be produced that meets their requirements.  Educating the public is an essential goal of photography and documentation.

Restoration and Re-vegetation

The Ojai Valley Land Conservancy has been working on re establishing native species in at the Ventura River Preserve, Meadow Preserve and many other areas around Ojai.   The recent Thomas fire has had a real  impact on their work.

Yes, qualifications, good judgment, competency, and experience are still important. A sign-up sheet and $5 payment does not create a careful RC pilot/photographer.  Good performance comes from the caliber of person, their motives and relationship to others.  That includes courtesy and respect for people in the vicinity, plus safety is always a prime concern. RC helicopter Aerial Photography requires an experienced operator, one who knows the importance of proper and conscientious flying technique, and an understanding of what the client has in mind. Since 2009, as one of a very few RC heli pilots doing careful and serious photography, long before the “Drone Fad”, have developed a working relationship with many who desire a responsible photographer. For quality and relevant results, it only makes sense to work with a mature knowledgeable individual with a wide range technical / scientific education and experience that contributes to all meaningful projects.
Note about aerials…

Virtual Reality video is somewhat new.  It uses special video that uploads to You-tube for your tablet or phone. This allows the viewer to rotate the screen so as to move the point of view within the panoramic video.   The orientation will match the direction that was used during filming. Also, there are numerous VR goggles that give the viewer an enhanced sense of actually being immersed in the video environment.  These goggles, or VR Viewers, can be used with phones, or computer with appropriate software and formatted video. Derivative video can be produced from a VR camera that can be incorporated into standard video formats. The result can be panoramic video merged with other types of content, such as photos or the regular video perspective.
