Aerial Photography Explained

At CS3 Photography, our professional FAA-licensed aerial photographers shoot high-quality images from an aircraft or drone to capture unique angles of your business or property.

To ensure your aerials are delivered to you as high-quality images, we use various types of machinery and techniques (fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, drones, blimps and more) to create picture-perfect images to capture your prospects’ attention.

When shooting aerials, our professional photographers utilize oblique angles and vertical (downward facing) angles. Each of these are used for different techniques — oblique shots best capture fine details, like building architecture, landscape designs and more, while vertical shots best capture large, expansive spaces and streets surrounding your business or property.

These specialized types of machinery and unique angles help us photograph your business’s greatest assets so they’re ready to be used in your marketing materials or online as soon as you receive them.

“I worked with CS3 Photography while completing a large project for my employer Valley Hope, an addiction treatment program. It was 14 locations in 7 states.
