More About AZ Drone

 Who is AZ Drone?

Greg Reverdiau – Pilot, Photographer, Videographer

Greg’s passion is flying.  He’s not only an FAA Certified Part 107 pilot, he’s also a manned aircraft pilot as well.  Oh, and a certified flight instructor and former senior executive for several flight schools.  While that’s already very impressive by itself, Greg is also an entrepreneur and owner of Arizona High Altitude Training.  Not only does Greg produce amazing content for our clients, he also produces amazing content for his own online business.

Rich Charpentier – Pilot, Photographer, and Videographer

Unlike Greg, Rich isn’t a manned aircraft pilot.  Instead, Rich is a former network engineer who changed careers back in 2006.  For over a decade he’s produced photography in a gallery setting as well as a commercial setting.  Becoming an FAA Part 107 pilot was a recent addition to Rich’s photographic skill set, and he is enjoying the addition of a flying camera to his arsenal of tools.  Recently Rich has been developing a collection of aerial videos for a new side project he is developing called Explore Prescott.

Photography and Video Expertise

As with any other camera, experience and skill goes a long way toward creating great images and video.  AZ Drone currently offers 2 experienced photographers who are also FAA Part 107 compliant.  Many remote pilots today don't have a background in photographic services.  AZ Drone offers both skilled pilots and skilled photographers to our clients.

Getting out and capturing images and video with a drone is just the beginning of the story.  After flying for clients a lot more work goes on behind the scenes.  Image selection, post production, editing, color correction, and more.  For every hour we're on a client location generating images, we spend several hours on selection and post processing.  While unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are technological marvels, many don't offer the greatest image and video out of the box.  That's where photographic knowledge really comes into play, and AZ Drone has you covered there!
