Welcome to SkyShutter Aerial Photography

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Industries and companies are relying on photos to communicate with and capture audiences through appealing imagery. In a world oversaturated with images, it is a challenge to do such a thing in an effective way. SkyShutter is a new and innovative approach to creating images and videos that stand out from the crowd. Our aerial technology provides a bird’s-eye view to create grand and mesmerizing perspective, which until now has only been achieved with a full-scale helicopter. We provide the tools that will allow you to capture your dream perspective, giving you an edge that will help you leave all competition behind.

Cost – SkyShutter RC Aerial Photography is the most cost-efficient way to capture Aerial Photography and Aerial Video. Our Helicam's flying weight is 30 lbs, while full scales weigh approximately 3,000 lbs; we use much less fuel, making our method much cheaper and environmentally friendly. Traditional approaches that employ full-scale helicopter photography require many more crew members as well as rental costs for helicopters equipped with camera setups, so production costs would soar as high as many thousands of dollars more than those accrued with our RC Aerial Photography and Aerial Video services. Our system only requires a pilot and a camera operator – and in some cases, only the pilot is needed.

Flexibility – SkyShutter RC Helicams can fly almost anywhere. Full-scale helicopters are usually not permitted to fly below 500ft in urban areas and not safe to fly in tight areas. In contrast, our Helicam can easily maneuver through a narrow street to chase a car from one foot off the ground to 400 ft up. We’ll leave it up to your imagination.

Minimal Noise – Full-scale helicopters produce jarring noises that can be heard for miles.  These powerful noises make it almost impossible to get permission to film in urban areas. On the other hand, most of our fleets are powered by electric brushless motors that are whisper-quiet. Because it is virtually impossible to pick up the noise from 50 feet away, our methods are perfect for filming in cities. 

Setup Time – While full-scale helicopters require a great deal of setup time, our Helicam only requires 5 to 10 minutes of preparation to ensure that mechanics are functioning properly and that the tank is refilled.  With our speedy setup, you’ll be ready to film any stunning Aerial Photography that you envision. Since production costs accumulate by the minute, with the time we save you, you can sometimes pay for part if not all of our Aerial Photography service fees.
