Residential Real Estate Photography
Prospective home buyers come to showings equipped with more information than ever before and often have tentatively concluded which home they want to purchase before ever even setting foot in a house or speaking with you.  Because this technology is only now becoming available to all, most home listings still don’t feature aerial photos or videos, thus creating a tremendous opportunity for you to stand apart from other agents and influence clients early.

St Louis Drone Photography and Video Production

St Louis Drones is a fully insured aerial cinematography company offering professional photography and video for the St Louis and Midwest region.

Our drones use the latest safety and technology in aerial cinematography.

Drone Services strive on safely capturing aerial footage that will highlight your unique vision and produce stunning visuals from a diverse perspective. We offer cost efficient drone packages that enable our clients to obtain aerial footage where it once would have been too expensive.

Safety is always our first priority. Our drones are operated by experienced pilots and camera operators. For safety and quality, we shoot with a two-man crew, and we are fully insured.  We adhere to FAA guidelines.  Our pilot always keeps visual contact with the drone, while our navigator guides and directs the shot.

We’ve been in the photography and video production business since 1982 and we have been shooting aerials also just as long but through more conventional means.

St Louis Aerial Video

Filming video scenes with a drone lets us capture breathtaking aerial shots that add visual excitement to your production. The perspective of a drone – whether a high, wide angle aerial or a closer, more intimate shot – provides a sense of motion and grandeur that was previously limited to large budget projects that could include very expensive helicopter shots.

More and more of our clients in the corporate, academic and nonprofit arenas want to include drone shots in their videos because drone shots can do so many things:

Give your golf course a Drone check-up!

The green shows the healthy areas of the course.  The yellow areas document the unhealthy areas that need attention.  The red areas show vegetation dormancy, roads, dirt and buildings.

Our NDVI Drone camera has the ability to decipher differences of up to three-hundredths of a degree Celsius. The thermal image is then scaled down to a narrow temperature spectrum and a color palate is applied to assess the variation.
With these images, you can see the problem areas of the golf course, and then go out and address these specific areas.

Call us today to review your project requirements.

Dave Topping and Rob Haller shot aerial video production and still photography for a full day in Pekin Illinois.  We utilized the Inspire Drone with 4K video camera resolution and 12 MP still images.  And no, those clouds appearing as smoke from the stack were captured in real time and not added later.  Sometimes a lucky photographer is the best to hire, LOL.

News Report Fox 2 Mandy Murphy St Louis Drones | Commercial Video Production Company

Here is a report on our creative crew members from Fox 2 News Mandy Murphy


ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The FAA last week decided to allow commercial use of drones under strict guidelines. The decision has been in the works since 2005 and still needs final approval. Current rules for drones are to fly for recreation. If commercial you need a pilot’s license. The new FAA rules allow for drones under 55 pounds, you must fly below 500 feet, further than 5 miles from an airport and not directly overhead of people. You must maintain constant visual line of site with the drone.

Haller Concepts of South County is already using drones from commercial photography and video. Safety is the most important aspect for Haller. They always use a two-man crew. One person operates the drone and keeps constant line of sight while the other watches the shot and directs the operator. Haller and many others like them will get their certificate of authorization.

Technology is far outpacing government rules. Law enforcement across the country are interested in using drones. St. Louis Police have asked for permission from the FAA. Groups like drone free St. Louis are opposed to police drones. They want strict privacy rules from the government.

Right now, the new ruling does not allow for companies like Amazon to begin delivering packages using a GPS drone. Line of sight is still required. It may take a year or two for the new FAA rules to be fully implemented.
