Have you ever dreamed that you were flying? One moment you're safe on the ground and in an instant you’re soaring above the places and spaces you love... you know, like Peter Pan. That's the experience you get with aerial photography. Photos and video captured just above the rooftops can have a fantasy feel if they're done just right.

A Helicopter Ride With a Twist
Helicopters have always been the standard for aerial photography. They allow a photographer to showcase an architectural showplace from a skybound view. A helicopter can rise high enough to photograph the lay of the land; but its lowest legal elevation might be a little bit too high to capture the fine details you want. Fortunately technological advances have vastly improved this aerial photography tradition.
A remote controlled flying quadcopter is like a helicopter only better, and it's less expensive to use. It can dip, dive, maneuver, and soar like a traditional helicopter. With a mounted camera it can be versatile enough to capture landscaping, natural surroundings, architectural elements, or a sweeping fantasy panorama that includes everything. A quad-copter with a mounted camera is small enough to ease in low and close for sweet, tight shots that you'll love.

How does it work?
The photographer remains in control, yet even that is somewhat of a high tech fantasy. He operates the remote controlled quadcopter from the ground, sending it to the perfect spot for the photos you want. results are amazing-- a bird's eye view, courtesy of a keen artistic eye with a technological spin.
You may never be able to fly like Peter Pan, but when you view aerial footage of your favorite places on earth, it will certainly feel like a flying fantasy brought to life. Contact us and we'll tell you more about the newest techniques in aerial photography.

Grey Street Studios Architectural Photography is now offering low-flying aerial photography and video!  This is accomplished with a remote controlled flying quad-copter.  Our Photographer uses Video Goggles to view exactly what the copter mounted camera is seeing in real time in order to frame the perfect shot. 

 

This Method of Aerial Photography offers a ton of advantages over traditional aerial photography to the New Homes Sales and Master Planned Community Development market.  It is more cost effective than chartering a full sized helicopter.  More importantly than that is that a helicopter cannot fly below 300-500 ft without risking safety and violating law, thus you end up with photography of a bunch of rooftops which isn't too appealing to the eye.  Just a little height makes a huge difference in a viewers perspective.  With our Copter Camera we can capture all our footage from 20-300 feet off the ground giving much more of a birds-eye-view rather than the view out of an airplane. 

  

The still images are a great marketing tool to showcase the features, lakes, preserves and streetscapes your community has to offer.  The Video we can capture is even more advanced with the feeling of a bird flying through your community viewing each feature and amenity you have to offer a new homeowner once they move into your community!
