Aerial Photography

High Tide Aviation offers aerial photography services for any application, including real estate, commercial projects, tourism, & marketing needs. Aerial photos provide an overall picture not possible from the ground. It’s a great way to showcase a home or property, as well as compliment existing ground-based photos in promotional marketing materials.


Aerial photos can help differentiate you from the competition and increase sales.Helicopters offer many advantages over airplanes when it comes to aerial photography. Helicopters provide the easiest working platform by allowing the removal of a door, leaving a large workable shooting area available. This can be very beneficial because you can pan the camera to keep the subject within the frame while still flying in a straight forward direction. Compared to airplanes, helicopter stability at a slower airspeed, combined with superior maneuverability, vastly decreases lost time and expense as you circle back to shoot from a different altitude or angle.


We work with experienced photographers that have years of experience overcoming the unique challenges associated with taking photographs from helicopters. If you would like to provide your own photographer, however, we are happy to work with them as well.


Rates are $700/hr for commercial photography flights. This price includes helicopter and pilot only. Half hour minimum. Photography services and packages are quoted separately based on the parameters of the shoot and extent of services provided.
