Water Clean Up

Aerial skills being put to work recently, tell the story of this incredible family owned and operated business. Based in Tavernier, Adventure Environmental Inc., deliver the answer to Irma debris removal and canal clean up along the chain of Florida Keys.


It’s late January 2019 and filming began in Key Largo, moves to Marathon, then to Big Pine and Cudjoe and back up for a grand finale. March sees completion of this project, a contract between Adventure Environmental Inc (AEI) and National resoruces Center (NRSC), Monroe County (MCO) and others.

AEI and this drone pilot all worked hard to get theses contracts, and in my case, the permits for flying the drone around Marathon International Airportz


For people attempting to fly and being blocked by the geofence: take a deep breath! It’s a process. There is no quick and simple solution. Go (google) to the DJI No Fly Zone unlock page and the FAA Drone Zone page for more. Links coming soon. Also drone flying in Key west or nearby, get started on FAA waiver applications. THEY TAKE A WHILE!


We got to follow their route as they worked to make our waterways clean, on behalf of Monroe County. We loved the results. But the biggest wow factors comes from the people we met.


They are all passionate about cleaning up. About making it better. Especially the secret weapon: the younger generation. Everyone we met had stars in their eyes when they spoke of the work they were doing together.


Either because it really is the best work any commercial scuba diver, claw driver, barge operator could possibly do or they simply have the best characters! Or both. Some crew members are out in the field for 6 months at a time. They look weather worn, contented and have that ‘last great frontier look’ about them. Being out off the coast or on the water or under it for so long so frequently gives them a really adventurous vibe. I was dead jealous! Used to be me w the wild I don’t care hair and the fit body scuba diving every day 4 times and never going inside a building! I miss it.


Not many families can say ‘we cleaned up the waterways of the Florida Keys together’ I mean we just don’t have that as a fond memory. That stuff shapes lives.

A Loft Miami

@loftmiami posted our picture! Thanks guys. Now we want to come see what you are all about.

Drone piloting is our passion. Even if we flew airplanes, we would still be avid aerial film makers. But sometimes it’s too windy to fly a drone or a plane. We love the magic of DSLR photography and film on earth, in the air or underwater.

Obsessed with looking and framing and shooting film. Occasionally a photograph will stop us in our tracks. This one did. For @aloftmiami who reposted it to their Instagram account to bring attention to this unique pet friendly modern hotel. In the Dadeland Mall area. Thanks for using one of our photographs. Other people with fresh eyes are always best at picking the good ones.

Florida Keys Aerial Photography

Florida Keys Aerial Photography is so effective at delivering your real estate listings to every social media outlet, even printed. We love beautifully balanced photographs, you love the impact they have on your clients and peers.

Florida Keys aerial photography sends a really gentle but powerful message to your audience. Catching the sun through the trees as it sets and casts gentle shadows on the water around a house is just dreamy. Catching the sun as it comes up is even dreamier. We love Florida Keys aerial photography, as well as traditional photography for Real Estate.

Our Florida Keys Real Estate Photography and Florida Keys aerial photography skills have been brightened and honed on many continents in Europe and in many states around the USA. But the sunny ocean horizons, sandy beaches, elegant Florida Keys resort lifestyle just beats it all.

Clearing the set for successful Florida Keys Aerial Photography

When you realize you’re in need of aerial photography the first thing to do is clear the set. What does that mean? Ideal Florida Keys aerial photography takes place on a sunny day with just a few tiny clouds, with little to no wind, no cars parked on the street, all the power lines and poles have been removed, the tree branches cut back and the house freshly painted, including a new roof.

Just kidding. Well. Not really. But those are the basics. When a 360 pan of the home requires we need to fly the drone around the house with a 10-20 foot clearance. It would be nice to remove the trees, power lines and sail boat stanchions. Many homes in the Florida Keys are on fairly small lots 50 x 100 with mangroves, buttonwoods, sail boats and power lines surrounding them.

Well, when you are selling a home or promoting a beautiful boat, or a car, the background is really important. Clear off all the surfaces, remove any kind of branding you aren’t officially allowed to display, for realtors this is especially important, the listings typically have to be neutral. So no signage.

Plan A PLan B Plan C

When we set up an aerial photo shoot it’s always better for your audience to see the home without cars, trash cans, recycle bins and general clutter. It’s been our experience that a few white clouds actually make the scene even more dramatic, so absolutely clear blue sky isn’t essential. And even better a slightly overcast grey sky brings out the details, it can really flatten out the shadows nicely and create that dreamy even look. It’s a simple step to add in light in our post-production work flow.

Florida Keys Aerial Photography licensed, insured, permitted

Getting it staged in time for our aerial photography to take place is a vital step. Planning is required. Preparing the home and the area around it as much as possible impacts all the other elements we’ve spent so long working on: batteries, sd cards, scheduling the shoot around high winds and sunny days, permits to fly. With a plan A, plan b, plan c it ensures all the pre-planning doesn’t go to waste.

Best bet is to schedule the aerial photography with at least a month to spare. And three back up plans. Then run through our handy Florida Keys Drone Pros aerial photography checklist (coming very soon as a film and downloadable checklist and printable) of preparations for the shoot.

Aerial Photography and Professional Photographic Production are both creative aspects of the work we love to do

We know everyone remembers the time they turned up to the party without a present. Well, we like to avoid errors. We like turning up to your real estate listing with the present, the batteries, the sd cards, the insurance, the license. We are local to the entire 200 miles of this Florida Keys we don’t charge more for a shoot in Key West than we charge for Key Largo. We are here, we live here, it’s our community.

Don’t forget Florida Keys aerial photography is something we love to do. Passionately. It is a pleasure but it is costly. We charge well for the work we produce, so we expect great results. If we don’t get them the first time we go back and do it until we do. Following a checklist can help attain the goals of perfect aerial photography. It helps us get perfect results the first time.

We also love making photographs of sporting events, weddings, concerts, motorcycle and car commercials, fashion shoots and family adventure photography. There isn’t much we cannot photograph with our drone, so let us answer your questions.
