Who we are
SkyeCam Studios, LLC is a professional aerial photography and cinematography team based in downtown Baltimore, Maryland. We have rebranded our website from SkyeCam Productions to SkyeCam Studios to reflect the full in-house studio work that we offer. We travel nationwide and internationally.
We are registered with the FAA and hold a valid 333 exemption to fly commercially, with our pilots having either their Remote Pilot Certificate (FAA Part 107) or full-size aircraft ratings. We maintain liability insurance policies for our drone flights.
Our team is a group of avid drone and flying robot specialists with well over a decade of RC plane experience.
We established SkyeCamProductions in Baltimore, Maryland back in 2013 becoming industry leaders in the world of aerial drone photography before expanding to the beautiful islands of Hawaii, where our second office is located. We have also expanded to Pennsylvania and Colorado, where our newest offices are located. Check out our partners here.
What we do
Gone are the days of the high cost and inefficient aerial photography through the use of the fossil fuel burners known as helicopters and in are the days of flexible drone based technology capable of achieving altitudes and camera angles never doable before.
SkyeCam Studios specializes in low-cost aerial photography and cinematography for real estate, construction, weddings, surfing competitions, agriculture, rescue, special events and more. If there is an angle from the air that needs to be filmed, we are there.
With a background in professional editing we are able to provide complimentary color correction, full stabilization, and stitching as part of all of our packages.
Recently we have added an option for customers to purchase a 3D printed model of a property or structure with the assistance of our drones. By taking hundreds of photos from multiple angles, we are able to construct a real physical 3D representation in whatever material you desire. Check out our blog section for more details on how we do this.
In the future we hope to be able to add thermal cameras to our flying crafts to aid in search and rescue operations throughout the world. Together with news agencies we hope to provide an alternative to helicopter based live news feeds on events with a drone based alternative.
How we do it
We use the latest technology in multi-rotors, or more commonly referred to by the masses as drones. They fly autonomously while we are in in full control and within line-of-sight at all times. With our state of the art gimbals, the systems used to control the axis and pitch of the attached camera systems we are able to achieve perfectly level and smooth aerial photography and video.
Our advanced models have built in global positioning systems (GPS) receivers allowing us to maintain a steady position regardless of wind or weather. This technology also allows us to flexibly program precise GPS guided routes for very specific applications.
Also, our cameras broadcast a real time video feed wirelessly to an electronic device on the ground, so that we can see exactly what the camera sees at any point in time.
