Using drone videos and photos to market your properties shows prospective sellers that you take advantage of every opportunity to make their property look awesome – and to stand out.
The visual advantages of camera drones have most impacted the way that expensive luxury homes are presented on the MLS and on agent’s websites.
Buyers of multi-million dollar homes often shop online first, so they expect high-quality photography and video in the online listing or they won’t bite.
It’s hard to argue that in the luxury property market, drone photography has upped the real estate marketing game in a big way.

Whether it’s to highlight the waterfront view, a gorgeous garden, or a really cool swimming pool, aerial drone photography captures the beauty and the utility of a home far better than ground-based photography or video can.
Our experts use the latest technology to create photo-realistic 3D point-cloud and mesh models of structures and landscapes, which are interactive, high-resolution and highly accurate. This allows us to create model data that is of real use to our customers and not simply a bit of eye-candy.

Visual Inspections become:
MORE EFFICIENT. Space and structure can be modelled in immense detail once and then reviewed and re-reviewed indefinitely thereafter. With traditional inspections, the inspection team would need to revisit the site if the initial pass was not satisfactory
QUICKER. Drones can cover surfaces or structures faster than traditional methods
CHEAPER. Avoid costs associated with engaging traditional inspections teams, associated equipment and insurance costs.
COMPARABLE to previous traditional and 3d modelled inspections. A 3D model created from drone-captured data is a photo-realistic, point-in-time copy of the subject space or structure. Mapping changes over time is made possible in a way never achievable before.
MEASURABLE. Our 3D models are accurate. Engineers, Architects, Planners can measure structures and landscapes, the height of stockpiles or the depth of excavations to a degree of accuracy acceptable to regulatory bodies and inspectors.
3D mapping and surveying become:
POSSIBLE in areas where manned aircraft borne LiDAR is not suitable
CHEAPER. Avoid costs associated with engaging traditional methods, associated equipment and insurance costs. Drone based 3D modelling is up to 5x cheaper than LiDAR for areas under 60km2*
COMPARABLE to previous traditional and 3D modelled surveys. In effect, a 3D model created from drone-captured data is a photo-realistic, point-in-time-copy of the subject (space of structure). Mapping changes over time is made possible in a way never possible before.
MEASURABLE. Our 3D models are accurate. 3D Game Designers, Surveyors and planners can use our 3D models to develop realistic simulations of current and proposed structures for use in Games, Environmental analysis among many industries
We have safely documented hundreds of live events! St Louis Drones is a Video Production and Photography company. We are a small firm that has been in the photography and video business since 1982. In the past we’ve shot traditional aerials, but over the past two years we have logged many thousands of hours with our aerial drones.
We have our 333 exemption from the FAA as Safe-To-Fly. We adhere to all FAA guidelines. For safety and quality, we shoot with a two-man crew, and we are fully insured. Our pilot always keeps visual contact with the drone, while our navigator guides and directs the shot.
The Inspire has a curved lens design which eliminates distortion, and the 20mm focal length opens up your shots to a remarkably wide angle without that fish-eye look. The camera shoots video at 4K, 4096 x 2150 High Definition.
Safely drone document your live events.

An aerial view provides so much when it comes to persuading a potential buyer to a property. When the buyer can see the entire property as well as the surrounding landscape and environment around the property, they can get a much better idea of the area as a whole.
Still shots just do not provide this information because of their limited scope. A still shot might show you a particular feature of a property, but it cannot provide context in terms of where that picture is situated on the property and how the abundance of features around the property look together. Take the example of a pool. If a pool is on a property, it is often displayed on current real estate sites in the form of a still shot of some water. What the viewer doesn’t see from that photo is the size of the pool, the features around it, where it is situated on the property, and how it is woven with the rest of the landscape.

With an aerial video, questions like those posed above can be answered in a visual way. Now, the viewer, wondering if he can see the pool from his back patio, can see the answer in the video.

We started flying the Inspire for a recent project and soon discovered the GPS was lacking in this particular area of tall buildings. So we decided to go back to our first flying tool the Phantom and pulled the GoPro camera and modified it with an extension to view the outer perimeter of the building area. The goal was to find the source of a few well hidden leaks. In addition the tuck pointing on this building was recently completed so the new leaks were a surprise to all involved.
The first image is the jpeg from the raw shot which we enlarged quite a bit.

All in all the project was a success, the building management team was quite pleased with the quick and economical findings.
