Get High Angle Drone Footage

If you’re a real estate agent or commercial developer, you know that great photography is essential to selling a property. And while traditional photography can give potential buyers a good sense of a property’s features, nothing shows off a property like aerial drone footage.

Small businesses, tradespeople, and other commercial operators can also benefit from aerial photography. If you need to show potential customers the scope of your work, drone photography is the perfect solution.

If you’re interested in getting aerial drone photography or video of your property, building, business, or services, please contact me today. I’ll be happy to discuss your needs and provide a free quote.

Seriously, it is a night and day difference after my edits. I enhance all photos using Adobe Lightroom so they look fantastic for my clients!

In addition to photography services, I also offer photo and video editing. I can help you improve your photos or videos with color correction, cropping, and other basic edits. I can also add text, graphics, and special effects to make your photos and videos more engaging.

I can also remove people and objects from photographs and videos. So if you have a picture or video that you want to use but there’s something in the background that you don’t want people to notice, in most cases I can edit it out for you.

If you’re interested in my photo and video editing services, please contact me today. I’ll be delighted to talk about your needs and give you a free estimate.

AI Image Art Generation

You’ve never seen anything like it! Check out my collection of photos created by artificial intelligence (AI) here. Created using text prompts in which a computer uses deep learning to produce incredible photo-realistic images, hand-drawn illustrations, and more.

Although some photos may seem a bit off with the eyes or limbs not always looking correct, it is still absolutely amazing that such quality photos can be produced so quickly. Sometimes the AI just nails it and looks perfect!

Producing images using AI is also great for conceptual art for a project. Many ideas can be created on the fly to gain inspiration and spark additional ideas for real-world and digital designs. The imagination is the only limit to AI image art generation.

Interested in using any of my images? Please contact me first before use.
