I'm Andrew - a drone pilot and aerial photographer. I help businesses create digital content that shows off their brands.
I grew up in Yukon, Canada. This created a love for wilderness adventures. Flying around up there in float planes, took me to the most beautiful places. Aerial photography became a huge passion. Then in 2012, drone video and photography was invented. That changed the aerial photo & film industry forever. Using drones to get those previously impossible shots was now a whole new craft. Aerial photography and drone filming became an addiction and I was hooked. Now I'm a drone pilot and photographer/videographer in Vancouver, BC.
Before you hire a drone pilot or aerial photographer in Vancouver, make sure you know about the Transport Canada regulations.
When you book my services, you can trust that you are not only working with a photographer with over 10 years experience, but also an aviation professional. I have a commercial pilots license for actual airplanes, as well as an advanced RPAS drone pilot certificate from Transport Canada to. Having a commercial pilots license gives me a competitive edge over most other drone companies in Vancouver. For example, when it comes to flight planning and getting permits.
My last project was filming the aerial establishing drone shots for an episode of "Till Death Do Us Part" to be aired on Investigation Discovery.
Having an advanced drone pilot certificate means I can shoot drone video and photography all over Canada and operate in controlled airspace.
After traveling all over the world, I have come to understand the power of visual storytelling. Above all, creating photos that inspire people to explore and travel is the driving force behind my images. Even though my company is based in Vancouver, I travel all over Canada for shoots.

What people say...
A few companies I've worked with...
I can manage a commercial campaign to distribute the content I create for you to your ideal buyers.
I'm sure you want to see RESULTS from the videos I make for you. Simply putting the content on up on your website isn't always enough to attract more clients. I want the videos we create for you to actually HELP your business. In order to do that, it needs to be strategically distributed to the right audience. By driving your ideal buyers to your site through a targeted ad campaign, I can help you increase your sales and accurately measure the ROI from the video we produce for you. This data is invaluable. Say for example, you know that by spending $1000 dollars a month on paid ads you can generate $3000 dollars in sales, wouldn't you want to know that?!
More than your average drone pilot!
The point where you know exactly how much you have to spend to acquire new customers is where you can really begin to scale your business. A targeted commercial campaign is the best way to get this data, and get your content in front of your ideal buyers. Using this technique is part of the strategy I've used to continually grow my own business month over month. I now rank #1 on Google for my target keywords. Punch in "aerial photography Vancouver" and see what shows up! This was accomplished through a combination of targeted campaigns and some good old fashioned organic SEO.
A drone pilot with a digital marketing strategy for your business.
So, unlike most photographers & drone video production companies who disappear after delivering your content, I can help you get it in front of the right audience. It's great to have beautiful content, but what you really need are results! This content distribution service is offered as a monthly package to businesses.
The one-stop content shop for your business that will clearly tell your story, generate more clients and amplify your profits.
Content for your project can actually be captured from planes, drones and full scale helicopters. For over a decade, I have been honing the craft of aerial photography. Always learning, because the tech is always changing. People sometimes ask me what I camera system I shoot on and the answer is, it depends! It's really just whatever camera is right for the job. There is definitely no one size fits all approach. Any photographer who tells you, "Oh, I exclusively use Canon, or Nikon, or Sony", or whatever it may be, probably doesn't really have much of a clue! It is not about the brand of gear you use, but how you use the best tool for the job to convey the story you are trying to tell.

I also love shooting architectural and interior photography. There is something inspiring I find in capturing really well designed spaces. Doing so, gives me all these ideas about how to create my own perfect space. As an architectural and interiors photographer, I spend a lot of my time at home editing. Therefore, having a place I am comfortable in adds so much enjoyment to my work.
