Aerial Photography - Steve Porter

Arizona Aerial Photography, LLC

I have been shooting from Cessna aircraft and helicopters for more than 30 years. While I also use drones regularly - I would still rather be in the ship and holding the camera. Maybe I just prefer the hands-on thing - flying the airplane, window open, camera in hand and looking for that next shot.

Whether I'm shooting for real estatetraffic accident documentation, construction progress or just looking for that next awesome fine art shot - it's still the funnest thing ever!


Commercially Licensed Drone Pilot

The benefits of drones as a platform for low level aerial imagery has become a standard in most of my video productions in addition to many still photography projects. As a COMMERCIALLY LICENSED drone pilot, I provide drone video and still photography services and use drones on a regular basis in my own projects.

Construction Progress

Aerial photos taken of construction sites weekly or monthly help document progress and keep everyone involved up to date on the project.

Real Estate

With 30 years of experience shooting aerials of properties throughout the southwest from a Cessna, helicopter or drone - wherever your property is located, I can get your shot.

Traffic Accident Sites

Aerial photos provide immediate documentation of physical evidence. Over the last 31 years, I have shot more than 1000 accident sites - many on the day the accident occurred.

Fine Art

Fine art photography shot from aircraft is my true love! Everything else just gets me and my cameras in the air to find that next compelling shot.
