Professional Photography Equipment

Aerial equipment has changed drastically over the years. From 1960 to 1983 we used large format K-20 army/navy aerial cameras. These cameras used 5 inch wide film and were widely used during WWII.

Increasing film quality allowed us to switch in 1984 to the smaller medium format cameras using 2 3/4 inch film and get dazzling results in 4 foot wide prints. Since 2004 we have become entirely digital using today’s state-of-the-art high resolution digital cameras. We also utilize high speed gyro stabilizers to minimize movement and vibration inherent in aerial photography to give you the highest quality images possible. Digital capture not only produces quality imagery but allows a quick turn-around to match the rapid pace of today’s business world.

Custom Aerial Photography

It isn’t just the aerial equipment we use. It’s also about where we will use the aerial equipment to get just the photo you need.

We shoot from airplanes, helicopters, cherry pickers (bucket trucks), or trees — whatever works to get us where we need to be to get just the right picture for your needs.
