Who We Are
Our many years of experience with this unique type of photography have allowed us to perfect our style and the equipment that we use. Medium format cameras are essential for detail and image quality and we have found that Pentax 6 x 7 cameras are best suited for aerials. We also use a gyro stabilizer to ensure optimum sharpness. What makes us unique however are the other assets that we have available to us. We own both planes that we fly, a Cessna Skyhawk and a Piper Cub and in addition, we fly from our own commercial airfield ! This combination allows us great flexibility in scheduling and valuable cost savings that we can pass along to you, our clients. One additional asset is the location of our operation. Jaffrey, New Hampshire is located in the southwest portion of the state and is centrally located in New England, which allows us to reach most areas of the region in a reasonable flying time.
