Aerial photography and videography are extraordinary ways to see landscapes and architecture from unique angles, allowing you to capture gorgeous shots of otherwise inaccessible areas. Aerial imagery and video are essential assets for the architecture, real estate, and environmental sectors. 


Explore the special considerations needed when shooting from an airplane, helicopter, drone, or tall structure. Plus, learn about the right tools and applications to have on hand to get what you want out of your aerial photographs.


Choose your aircraft wisely.

The optimal method for aerial photography depends on what you’re shooting and why. For simple projects, like site planning or real estate shots, a drone might be all you need. However, certain heights and areas can require you to hop into an aircraft. In an airplane or helicopter, you can bring more equipment to ensure that you capture the high-resolution images you want.
