Contact Us




How Does it Work?


We will work with your business & site representatives to assess your needs and wants, as well as the safest and best course to complete your project. From there our team will determine what airspace the project is taking place in. Our Pilot will contact parties that need to be notified prior to operations. Once all information is gathered and and a plan laid out, we can then prepare to shoot on an ideal weather-friendly date and time. If needed, we can also repeat the process over the course of a project so a timelapse is available.




What Does it Cost?


Costs vary pending clients needs and amount of time spent on a project. For example, a nice indoor 360 panoramic coupled with an outdoor panoramic shot with our DJI Drones would amount to equipment, maintenance, time spent at site, travel, data storage, editing and final delivery via hard copy or the cloud. Size of the job site is a large factor in pricing, as larger sites require more time on-site, in addition to the back-end processes handled off site. For a specific quote, Contact Us Here.
