We operate our aerial photography service out of St. Albert, Alberta, and will travel to deliver services in most of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia.

We use aerial imaging to collect the pieces and help you put the puzzle together.

Our deliverables are presented as data files in formats that you can work with easily. We will get them to you through standard data transfer channels, or on ‘thumb drives’.

We do a limited amount of image and video editing for you.

Do you need some thoughtful copy to go with those images?

We believe in innovation and flexibility. Just because the service isn’t in our list doesn’t mean we don’t do it or won’t try it. Don’t hesitate to ask.

What We Do

Aerial imaging is a broad description of what we do.

We’ve loosely categorized our work into several buckets to facilitate the conversation:

We provide support services to residential homeowners, property managers who look after where we live, where we conduct business, farming enterprises, construction companies and Realtors, Real Estate agents and property developers.

That seems like quite a list, doesn’t it? There’s more!

We also have fun!!

Our process is straightforward;

  1. conversation to scope the project which may include development of a shot list.
  2. site survey which may include onsite walk about, but definitely looks at doing a weather forecast check, verification of Transport Canada and municipal restrictions , if any.
  3. set up on site, and capture the images requested. Cleanup, remote transfer of images if possible. Leave the site.
  4. Package and transfer the images as agreed.

Data Delivery

Photos and videos are transferred to the clients via ‘Air Drop’, email, DropBox, or on a thumb drive.

Printing of photos and editing of video is available. Compiling video and photos into a presentation can also be done. Copywriting to support the images and project is an option.
