Aerial Photography  - Oblique and Vertical

Aerial images make an Impact! They provide a broad and unique view that is simply not possible from ground level. It allows you to see the entire property from different angles. You will be able to demonstrate the advantages/disadvantages of the property location. Show access routes and neighboring developments. Aerial Images make perfect legal documents, planning tools, presentation aids, promotional or marketing materials. And, of course, maybe you would like to offer and aerial photo gift to someone of their residence or their workplace, that's fine too.  We also offer gift certificates, discounts and coupons!  Call for details.


Finding the right professional photographer for your needs has never been easier.  As an experienced airline pilot and photographer, you can count on my expertise in getting the job done at affordable prices.  Here's how: 

At Mattucci Photography and Graphics, we operate our own  high-wing aircraft that costs  less than renting from a commercial flying school or company.  By keeping the aircraft cost to a minimum, this will allow us to pass the savings along to our clients.  Plus, because we are FAA licensed commercial pilots, we can control our own pilot’s fees.  However, there may be instances due to aircraft unavailability for maintenance or scheduling reasons that will force us to rent an aircraft.  Rental aircraft usually increase the cost by a minimum of $170/hr. For a premium, quick turnaround service, we have access to aircraft in fairly short notice but this increases the cost.  Please allow up to two weeks for the completion of an aerial photo mission unless you request a quick turnaround service.  Aerial Images can be taken obliquely (out of the window, with the subject being viewed at an angle) or vertically.

Q: How much does an aerial photo shoot cost?

 Q: What is the difference between Oblique and Vertical aerial photography?
Oblique Images are taken from the side of the aircraft at an angle of the property and ground, allowing you to appreciate the land perspective, height of buildings and vegetation. These images can be acquired at different height levels, according to your needs.

Vertical images are taken directly overhead and above the property or site. This view is also known as map-like images giving you a 90 degree straight down view. Our modified camera mounting, image stabilization, and high-wing aircraft, give us the ability to provide you and your company with high resolution "TRUE" 90 degree vertical images.  See example below:
