COEUR D'ALENE & SPOKANE
Are you struggling to stand out against competitors?
Give your audience a completely different perspective with aerial images & video!
Aerial photography (also known as 'Drone Photography') is the process of photographing property from the air with a drone camera. This requires professional licensing with the Federal Aviation Administration for any commercial applications.
Aerial images & video can help you stand out!
Instead of seeing a standard building, home or landscape image, your audience is getting a birds-eye view & ultimately a perspective that will have you standing out in a crowd.
You can use aerial photography & videography to your advantage in several ways.
Exterior Building Shots: Exterior images of your building will give you fun new angles to promote your business with.
Area Images & Video: Coeur d'Alene & Spokane aerial footage shows customers where you are, but also has them stopping in awe.
Real Estate Properties: Aerial images allow a property to stand out in a sea of properties available online.
Movie Production Companies: For years, you've been seeing aerial photography & videography, giving projects a little more depth.
& More: Of course, there are always other opportunities. The possibilities with drone photography are just about endless.

Amy is not just a photographer-she is family. I worked with Amy on a project for my business and the experience was beyond amazing. She dedicated so much time and attention to truly understand who I am and what I do. Her deliverables were amazing. Her talent is in her craft, but also in how she connects with those around her. My clients fell in love with her, too. She is part of our tribe now-she should be part of yours, too. - Molly Kreyssler | Bloom
AERIAL/ DRONE PHOTOGRAPHY F.A.Q.
What type of drone do you have?
I fly a DJI Mavic Air. This is a smaller drone that has the ability to go 17+ miles per hour & has a 10-20 minute battery life.
How long can you fly?
At this time, I have three batteries. These give me about 10-20 minutes of battery life each depending on whether I'm doing aerial photography or aerial videography services.
How high can you fly?
FAA regulations limit drone operation to a maximum of 400' unless you've requested special authorization.
Where can you fly?
The FAA limits where drones are able to fly, including near airports & in restricted area (National Parks, some state parks, etc). This will be reviewed prior to taking your project.
Are you licensed?
Yes. In order to fly commercially, to sell any of your content, you're required to be licensed every two years by the FAA.
Are you insured?
Yes. I'm insured through The Hartford to protect myself & my customers.
What do you charge for aerial photography?
Prices will vary based on each individual project. I often start the pricing at $100 for vacant land images & it goes up from there.
Amy has done all of our aerial photography, starting with standard shots of our main building, and now she is working on shots as we prepare to build our new addition. She's always quick to respond and get out in the field. She's professional, reliable, certified and very knowledgeable about her drone and it's capabilities. I'd highly recommend her to any business looking to record their growth or to boost their online presence with high quality aerial images. Commercial Photography Coeur d'Alene is now at a completely different level because of her. - Summit Mold | Post Falls, ID
