This gallery contains several examples of oblique images from high level full scale aircraft and low level examples shot using small UAV aircraft. The first images show examples taken at 2500′ and 2000′ from full scale helicopters.

 

High Level Full Scale Photography

For commercial property, we usually need to show LOCATION and points of interest in the surrounding area. This requires the images to be taken from an altitude which is not legal (or safe!) to use a drone. Depending on the location and client, these are typically taken at altitudes ranging from 1000 to 2000 feet above the ground. The first images in the gallery show examples starting at 2500′ MSL and 2000′ MSL.

This type of photography is great for showing areas of interest in the vicinity of a subject property and depending on the weather and lighting conditions, objects up to 10 miles away on the horizon. In the first few example images in the gallery you’ll see the Dallas and Fort Worth skylines on the horizon.

Low Level Obliques

For closer, low level images, we use one of several types of small UAV aircraft, or “Drones”. Depending on the location we typically use these for photos below 400′ above the ground. This allows us to get closer and more interesting angles of a property or subject. This works well for smaller commercial properties where the focus is on the property itself and on the surrounding area.

You’ll notice that on the low level images, you aren’t able to see objects or locations which are very far off into the distance. At the maximum legal altitude of 400′ above the ground, tall objects or locations which are further than a couple of miles begin to disappear into the horizon.

 

The Best of Both Worlds

For a lot of our Commercial Clients we’ll use both tools, shooting high level aerials to show the surrounding area to the horizon and adding low level drone photos for the close up detail shots.

We have a variety of equipment which gives us the ability to meet most unique challenges. Every client has special and unique requests for their photographs, which we’re happy to meet. Here are a few of the unique types of photography we specialize in.
