Need drone video, photography, or architectural photography for your business? I'm Andrew, and I can help.
I grew up in Yukon, Canada. This created a love for wilderness adventures. Working there as float plane pilot, took me to the most beautiful places. As a result, aerial photography became a huge passion. I woke up one day, and realized I had to switch the entire focus of my career from aviation into photography. Then the year 2012 came around, and drone video and photography was born. That changed the aerial photo game forever. Using drones allowed for entirely new ways to create imagery. The technology was incredible! Aerial photography and drone video became an addiction and I was hooked. Being a drone pilot these days is the best thing ever.
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. Anyone who tells you, "oh, I only use Canon, or Nikon, or Sony", or whatever it may be, probably doesn't really have much of a clue of what they're talking about! It is SO 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.

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 pilot certificate from Transport Canada to operate drones. All of the skills and knowledge to safely and legally create an aerial production are right here. Safety is always the biggest concern when things are flying in the air, and that is something I take seriously. If you are looking for a drone pilot who breaks the rules, we are probably not the best fit! That being said, all it takes is the right amount of planning and I can fly a drone pretty much anywhere.
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.
Here's the cover photo I shot for Nature Magazine
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.
