P-Tn has provided aerial photography services to clients for over four decades, using airplanes, helicopters, even helium blimps! Now we are focused on the use of . . . DRONES!

Aerial imaging using UAS – Unmanned Aerial Systems [Drones or Quadcopters] now a proven strategy and a solid part of our service lineup. Our team of FAA Certified Pilots employ DRONES for both still-frame capture and HI-DEF or 4K Drone Aerial Imaging for construction progress photos & videos, 360 Interactive aerial panoramas, 2D mapping, 3D modeling, elevation & vegetation health evaluation, inspections, plus creative marketing footage.
Our UAS aerial services have eclipsed our traditional aircraft shooting, especially for construction & real estate development documentation, and the advantages of dramatic low-altitude aerials of your project will provide more detailed information and greater impact for marketing efforts, so don’t hesitate to call and have a chat with one of our pilots. Aerial imaging using UAS – Unmanned Aerial Systems [Drones] is now a proven but still developing technology, and P-Tn continues to expand its drone services. Our FAA Certified Pilots employ drones for both still-frame photography and HI-DEF or 4K VIDEO Drone Aerial Imaging. We are insured and operate within FAA regulations to deliver safe and productive aerial imagery assignments.
P-Tn staff handles all post-production work, whether it is finishing of digital files, online posting or uploading, file preparation, printing & framing of quality WALL DISPLAY color enlargements. We offer clients professional video editing for social media posts and marketing-quality promotional videos. In additional, we create Aerial Progress Report videos for construction projects that include stills and video footage, presented with titling, logo, and background music – great for owner presentations.
Aerial construction progress is accomplished using drones flown by our team of FAA Certified Pilots, delivering a birds-eye view of the entire project, plus detailed photographs of areas where site work activities are concentrated. Our drone flights typically include a series of still photos, plus additional VIDEO footage, professionally edited for project team updates and sharing.
Interactive Aerial 360-degree Panoramas are an economical option for entry level aerial construction progress reporting, for [AEC] Industry Architecture Engineering Construction clients. Pan throughout the image to view in all directions, and zoom in for details as needed. Our drone pilots capture aerial 360 panoramas from vantage points 200-300 feet above, for an exceptional overview of the site, equipment, & materials, as well as all exterior construction progress. Multiple panoramas are linked together, permitting you to ‘jump’ from one location to the next across your site. Give this PANO a try.
DRONE AERIAL Progress Reports include a single marketing-quality video. Each video includes several still photos from all angles, plus at least two straight line flyovers captured on video, plus a perimeter flight around the entire property. Close-up photos and video may be included of any concentrated site activities. Videos are professionally edited, and include project title, logos, and background music. See this SAMPLE.
UAS-DRONE AERIAL 2D MAPPING & 3D MODELING of your development or active construction site delivers highly detailed interactive site mapping with elevation & measurement + volume calculation capabilities, as well as 3-dimensional viewing options. There are a number of options available thru these services, so please call us to discuss – they are another level above our Aerial Progress Reporting videos or Panoramas.
Please feel free to contact us for a discussion about the scope of these drone services.
Our inspection services incorporate additional specialized drone imaging techniques to record conditions of roofing systems, job sites, vegetation and other site conditions. The site may be active construction of a building or process plant, or the future site for a real estate development. Contractors benefit from pre-BID aerial documentation for site evaluation, as do engineers & architects during the design process.
Some of the above VIDEO services are available using STILL-PHOTO equipment, and often both can be employed to improve the volume & quality of the final documentation record. Whether we create still photos or video footage, on the ground or with drones, DIGITAL is the preferred deliverable for the Visual Documentation services we provide.

Marketing your business or a given project – whatever the type of building or activity – should include using drones in order to capture unique aerial views and eye-catching video footage to help tell these stories.
Here are examples of what we call a “Video Marketing Short”. We’re creating more and more of these unique presentations for our clients – after producing many such videos that concentrate on imagery from our creative UAS-Drone flights. Video has become very popular with all businesses that want to make an impression, and want to do so in a matter of a minute or two. Motion – alone – has the potential to attract far greater attention than a single, still photo. Whether you build streetscapes like the previous video, repair elevated railroad bridges, or renovate office buildings, you have a story to share with associates, clients, and future prospects.
Let’s be frank – Professional pilots are a must for any drone flights that are related to business in any way. Don’t end up the target of $10k fines from the FAA for flying without a license – or for HIRING an unlicensed UAS – Drone Pilot!
