Drone Video of Spokane Bloomsday 2017

Bloomsday is an annual 12k foot race and had a 2017 attendance of 38,748 participants. We shot aerial footage in collaboration with MWH /Stantec and Spokane Drone Photography, our companies respectively capturing ground and drone footage of the race. Our drone was launched near “doomsday hill” which is a moderate but lengthy incline located near the end of the race which requires runners to push themselves to climb in order to reach the finish line. Congratulations to all of the 2017 participants! Thanks to Travis Bush of Stantec for the excellent ground footage!

BBC Documentary: “I Shot my Parents”

Spokane Drone Photography and Isaacson Aerial Photography worked with BBC Current Affairs to film drone footage for this documentary film which takes place in Washington State. We provided the drones, remote pilot, and drone camera operator for the production. We were honored to be chosen as the aerial video company for the film and received very positive feedback from the producer after the project was completed:

“If you need drone photography in Washington State, I’d highly recommend Rob and his team. His footage is stunning, cinematic and thoughtful. He is also a great collaborator and team player with no request or shot too difficult to achieve. Rob’s footage has transformed my film.” -MW

“In 2013, 14-year-old Nathon Brooks walked into his parents’ bedroom and shot them both in the head while they slept. Astonishingly both his mum and dad survived. Filming with Nathon and his mother and father, this programme follows the incredible journey of the Brooks family as they come to terms with what their son did and as they try to understand why he did it.” (BBC)

Juell Wedding, Drone Photography

Two of my great friends, Tabitha and Josh, were joined in marriage last weekend and I had the privilege to photograph them with the drone. While fellow photographers Jason and Jim snapped traditional photos from the ground, my camera was flying suspended in the sky above the treeline capturing the moments. These two are avid dancers and naturally they looked right at home twirling and moving through the trees. I really love the spot they chose and the sunlight was perfect with just a little bit of cloud cover to diffuse the light.

Tech Specs: DJI Inspire 1 Pro, Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens @ 1/120s f/2.8 ISO 200

Guardian Life Spokane

The Commercial Real Estate firm Fischer Company commissioned Spokane Drone Photography to deliver aerial images of the Guardian Life Insurance campus in Spokane Washington.  This aerial project was best completed via helicopter so one was employed for the task.  This allowed us to get high enough to show the entire campus in perspective with the rest of North Spokane without the FAA imposed 400 foot height limit with drones.  Guardian has office locations all over the United States as well as approximately 8,000 employees and a network of over 3,000 financial representatives in more than 70 agencies nationwide.  Interior/Exterior still images & editing provided by RL Miller Photography
