Default Experienced Aerial Photo Pilot/Photographers

National Airviews, Inc. has grown 300% per year since the inception of our speculative photography division in 2015. We have brought this tried and trued business model into the modern age. We are seeking experienced oblique aerial photographers who want to be part of our unique, one of a kind branch expansion in OH, MI & IN.

As a branch affiliate, you'll still enjoy your own established regional business but will have the opportunity to grow with us. No longer will you have to loose business to competition passing through your area – you will now command that business!

You continue to do what you love - fly and capture aerial photos while we hire and manage the sales force, process and pay their commissions and sales taxes, print the photos, supply the frames and handle all back office support functions. At then end of each week, you'll earn a substantial, year-round royalty (potential of six figures plus, annually) on all photos sold in your region. You are free to grow your region as large as you would like with earnings only limited to the size of your region.

I'm sure you, like many, have either thought about this type of business model or attempted it just to find out it's a management and logistics nightmare. How do you find and keep sales people, pay them, print photos inexpensively and supply the frames? Compounding this problem is how do you know the exact location of all photos, supply the sale force with the location data and know where you've already photographed?

In the last 3 years we've solved ALL of these problems. Our external supply chain, as well as our internal production and logistics are poised and ready for an expansion. Our on-board autonomous photo logger system we've developed records the exact position of each photo and displays a moving map showing were you've already photographed. All you have to do is what you do best - fly and shoot.

We are looking for ONE skilled aerial photography professional in your region that would like to join us. If this sounds like it would be of interest to you, here is what we require:

-desire to earn $500-$1,000+ per flight hour while on station
-the comfort and ability to fly at 600-800 MSL for 4-6 hours per flight
-your own high wing aircraft (or access to one)
-a Canon 5D, Mark I, II or III camera with a 35-350 zoom (or the ability to obtain)
-the skill set to capture the perfect oblique photograph , 400-800 times per flight
-basic understanding of the Windows 10 operating system

So, if this sounds of interest to you and you'd like to discuss this further, just respond back.

Somebody will be placed in your region, why not make it you!

So all you’re looking for is someone to take the pics with their own plane and camera? And you provide the salesman and print products? What’s the royalty look like? Is there a base pay per picture? Or all depends on IF the salesperson can sell? If so that means I’d have to front the cost of fuel, food, and hotel up front?

How are you going to prevent competition? You can't. Unless you're actually advertising a protection racket. That would be illegal.

How do you know the exact location? If you don't, you shouldn't be flying an aircraft. It's really not that complicated.

No problem; the one thing you left out is commercial pilot certificate. This operation requires one.

Anyone flying around at 600 AGL (not MSL as you stated above) really ought not be taking pictures while flying. This implies the need for a second person to take the pictures, with the first to fly...unless he or she has a modified aircraft capable, which isn't going to be an owner with a handheld Cannon.

What you're really describing is a business you want to put together selling pictures and you don't have the wherewithal to get the pictures. Get someone else to provide everything for you, from aircraft to camera, have them pay for it, and you'll shoot a commission their way. Sort of like going to work for someone, but paying to do it. Which isn't really working for someone.

You've cracked the code. How to run a business and have others provide all the labor, equipment, skill, risk, and effort. Or have you farmed that out too, and have others selling, framing, and producing your pictures on their dime and time, too? Just run it from your computer and rake in the dough? You've cracked something. It may not be the code.

How does this fit into your advertising online that all pics are taken with " gyro-stabilized, professional grade digital cameras and lenses"

Holding the yoke with my knees while sticking my DSLR out of the window at low altitude doesnt seem "gyro-stabilized"

I'm fairly certain that the stuff he's telling you is honest though. Trust him.

In a world where you as the owner of House yes. But as a business owner a drone couldn’t keep up with the amount of pictures of farms and houses an airplane can take. On a good day a plane can take anywhere from 200-400 quality farms.
