I’m focusing heavily on videos in 2017. I’m going to continue using drones, but I’ll also be spending a lot of time creating 360 content. Currently, the available 360 cameras aren’t to the quality I’d like to see, but that’s changing very quickly. I’ll be picking up a new 360 camera at the end of March when it comes out and I’m very excited about it. Until then, I’ll be creating shorter 360 clips around Austin and a few places I’m traveling to. First up, two minutes around Austin, Texas.
I spent a few hours at BSR Cable Park in Waco, Texas over the weekend to celebrate a friend’s birthday and last weekend in Austin. The 90 mile trip from Austin was well worth the drive and I’d recommend visiting BSR Cable Park at least once. Experience below.
Photography has always been a passion for me, but it’s organically grown into something bigger. Since purchasing my first professional drone, I’ve been out shooting almost on a daily basis preparing for my road trip through Iceland. Now that I’m back, it’s time to help small businesses in the Austin, Texas area capture aerial content. Below are examples of recent aerial photos and videos. You can view my Austin aerial photography and videography page for additional information.
Aerial Videography Around Austin
From Austin skyline views to secluded trails, an aerial perspective provides a different experience that you can’t get from the ground. Below is my first aerial video of Austin.
Austin Real Estate and Aerial Videography
Aerial photos and videos for real estate adds uniqueness and value to a listing. Below is an example of a listing that includes aerial content.
Other Aerial Videography Examples
I lived in Chicago for five years before moving to Austin. I think it’s the best place to be in the summer so I try to visit as much as I can during this time. The below video was taken on Lake Michigan.
The first country I took my drone to was Iceland. Below is one of the videos using aerial footage.

Enchanted Rock is the largest pink granite monadnock in the United States. It’s about an hour and a half drive from downtown Austin, located in Fredericksburg, TX. Once you arrive and pay the $7 entrance fee per person you have approximately 640 acres to explore. There are dedicated trails, but we found deviating a little to be more exciting. I felt that 3 hours was enough time at the park, but you also have the option to camp there. I haven’t done it, but I hear that the star gazing experience is pretty great at Enchanted Rock. Below are photos from the trip. Bonus tip: visit Cooper’s BBQ in Llano when you’re done. Amazing.
At the end of 2015 I decided to get into photography. The process of taking photos and finding the perfect shot is fun, but it isn’t enough for me. I either want photos to tell a story on their own or add some sort of interesting fact that adds value. Basically, I want to provide the beauty and the brains behind a picture. That’s because nobody likes a stupid attractive person after a few weeks. Except other stupid attractive people. And it goes with my belief of being interesting and not just appearing to be. So, here is my first photofact.
I just moved to Austin from Chicago and the fact behind this picture ties the two together. In 1882 the State of Texas bartered the construction of the capitol for three million acres of land. Who received the land? Chicago brothers, John V. and Senator C. B. Farwell. This is one of the largest barter transactions in history and the land eventually became the largest cattle ranch in the world.

Below are a few additional photos from the same night.
Bull Creek is only 20 minutes from downtown Austin and provides hiking, swimming, at your own risk climbing and those romantic picnic opportunities. The creek is one of the tributaries that feed the Texas Colorado River and spans approximately 12 miles, giving you plenty of ground to explore. It’s best to go after a recent rain, but you’ll still enjoy your trip if you can’t wait until then. Below are a few pictures from my mini trip.
