Custom aerial photography assignments have included creating aerials for an advertising campaign for American Express, air to air photography of an Airbus from a Lear for the launch of the new Virgin America airline, night time aerials the Rolling Stones' Bridges To Babylon Tour, infrared aerial photography for the United States Geological Survey, aerial videography for the United States Coast Guard and creating aerials for an aerial photography book about Mexico City.

We are known for our ability to execute complex aerial photography assignments. For the City of Palo Alto's Centennial Celebration, for example, we created night time aerial photographs of the multimedia show and spectators. For this production, we set up over 30,000 watts of strobe lights in downtown Palo Alto, California, which we triggered via radio signals synchronized with our aerial cameras in a precisely synchronized sequence coordinated with ground to air radios.
