Sometimes the best shots come from the sky and Tampa Bay Video Service has you covered with aerial videography and photography services using drones and helicopters. Aerials add a unique perspective and increases the production value of many projects. 


Unmanned Aerial Vehicles aka “drones” have changed the the aerial video and photo industry forever. Now, aerial images are more affordable than ever before. However, flying commercially comes with specific requirements, regulations, and challenges. 

Our lead videographer Ryan French is an FAA Part 107 certified drone pilot. He also has special agreements on-file with local airports and can safely operate drones closer to the airport than other commercial pilots, including near MacDill Air Force Base.

In addition to strict safety standards, each flight is insured and Tampa Bay Video Service adds our clients as a named insured party to the policy. We also have connections with other drone pilots for shoots requiring a larger staff or specific expertise. 

Aerial coverage can be purchased as a primary service or added to other production services such as weddings, real estate, business ads, music videos, and more. Reach out to us today so we can provide you a quote for your aerial video or photos.


Drones are almost always most economical way of gathering aerial video or photos, but often there are places they simply can’t fly. However, Tampa Bay Video Service has you covered and can also provide videography and photography from helicopters. 

In addition to our experience with drones, Ryan French has logged hundreds of hours of flight time shooting video and photos from helicopters. Options include operating handheld DSLR’s to gyro-stabilized camera equipment mounted to the helicopter. 

Tampa Bay Video Service has partnerships with local helicopter companies. We can help schedule a helicopter flight for your video or photo project and of course, shoot it for you. As an added bonus, you might also be able to have some fun and fly with us!
