No matter how tricky the shot, we can capture it safely and dynamically. We provide a new medium for capturing beautiful and breathtaking images. Our team is comprised of video and film professionals with many years of experience in the motion picture and broadcast video world. Based in Las Vegas, Aerial Video and Photo uses Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for television and film production.

Key Benefits for Video, Cinema, and Broadcast


We can fly where no other aircraft can. Our remote controlled aerial platforms are equipped to film from unique vantage points that are often too expensive, too dangerous or just impossible to shoot with full sized helicopters. Safely fly as low as 1 foot above the ground and as high as 400 ft, giving us a range of perspective that has never been possible until now.


A big advantage of using our drones/UAVs over using a camera crane or jib is our setup and launch time. Once on location, we can be in the air in as little as 8 minutes. Compare that to the typical setup time of a 30’ jib which is often times around an hour and a half. Capture aerial video in multiple locations in a short amount of time.


When you add up the cost of crew, fuel, permits, and insurance, to the cost of a full size helicopter, the added benefit of shooting with a drone is highly apparent.


Our most popular flying rig requires only about 9 cubic feet and can fit in the back of most compact cars. Our drones can also be transported on commercial airlines.


Often our drones can augment the use of jibs and camera cranes. Fly through narrow areas, city streets or natural obstructions, where a full-size helicopter cannot access safely. Our flying camera platforms give the Director or Director of Photography stunning shots, only dreamed of previously.


When shooting with a full size helicopter, the hourly charges can be extremely high making reshooting a scene, or waiting for the different light and weather extremely costly. Our UAVs allow you to dial in the perfect shot.
