Our Aerial Philosophy

Championing innovative drone photography and videography is the key to capturing unique memories and captivating aerial views instead of common ground shots limiting perspective and landscape.  There are endless valuable applications for aerial viewing.  Allow us to memorialize and capture an epic story from the sky for you.

"My experience with Cincinnati Drone Photos was exceptional. We met at a large farm that I have listed. He spent hours using 2 -different drones to capture the home and entire property. Within a day I was sent the most incredible video that he created. I have passed his name along to other people with the same professional results. Thumbs Up, Carl Ray!"
