CS3 Aerial Photography Explained

Our professional FAA-licensed photographers have spent years specializing in aerial photography and know exactly how to capture the greatest angles of almost any property type. At CS3 Photography, we take into account the many variables that contribute to getting the perfect final shots in the most efficient use of your time. That means, we’ll help coordinate based on things like lighting, time of day, weather conditions, shot list order, editing and much more.

Our aerial photos are taken from thousands of feet above ground using various types of machinery and techniques — fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), blimps, parachutes and vehicle-mounted poles — to provide you with the most marketing-worthy images you can showcase online or in printed collateral to entice prospects with all that you have to offer.

Aerial images can be taken both manually and automatically, but typically, they’re taken from an angle, or “oblique”. Oblique aerials are great for capturing the specific details of the subject in focus, such as complex architecture or a landscape design. Aerials can also be taken straight downwardly, or “vertically”, which are best for displaying very large, open spaces and/or the streets that surround your property or business.

Businesses across many industries take advantage of aerial imagery from CS3 to increase their sales and bottom line, and yours can too! From construction to property management and more, we can help you get the professional assets you need to provide potential customers with an all-encompassing view of your offerings and their surroundings.
