Elite Drones Services began as Elite Photo Phoenix back in 1997. I have worked as a professional photographer providing photo work for commercial assignments, weddings, real estate, events, magazines and fashion. In 2013 after my drone photography side of the business took off, I decided to create a business dedicated to the drone side of things. It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Elite Drone Services, your trusted source for all of your aerial photo & video needs. While I primarily do aerial photo/video, I do still offer ground photography, real estate video walk throughs and interior 360 videos.

I started my journey as an FAA 333 exempt pilot for public safety and today I hold a part 107 drone pilot certificate for commercial flights. I have logged over a thousand hours flying drones for personal, public safety and commercial use. I carry a 1 million dollar GL insurance policy and am a licensed business with the State of Arizona. I am night flight certified, and I am able to obtain flight authorizations for places normally off limits to non FAA certified drone pilots, such as around airports. In addition to my FAA licensing and extensive flight training, I am also OSHA 10 certified for construction project work, I am an Arizona state licensed Fire Department EMT, a licensed fire inspector, and I am a SARTECH for public safety/search and rescue. I provide my drone services for free to public safety organizations who need emergency drone resources in the West Valley. I am available to travel anywhere my clients need me, both inside and outside of Arizona. I can shoot high resolution photo, and video up to 5.1k. We are a first responder owned and operated business and guarantee 100% client satisfaction. Reach out to me today and let's discuss your aerial photography needs.
