The owners of WhirlyBird Images, LLC, dba WhirlyBird Aerial Services, have been living in Cedar Creek, TX, since 2008. Marc and his wife, Laurel, take great pleasure in calling Bastrop County their home. Living just a few miles outside of Bastrop provides them with the enjoyment of living out in the country, but with the added bonus of enjoying numerous shopping, dining and entertainment venues in nearby Bastrop.

 

We changed our name to WhirlyBird Aerial Services to reflect our ever increasing role in the aerial photography services industry.  With the ability to do much more than just take pictures and video with our drones, it was just a logical step to offer services that go way beyond shooting photos and videos of residential and commercial Real Estate. We are thrilled to now provide our specialty services for mines, construction sites, agriculture, insurance adjusters, home inspectors and more. 

The other half of this team is Laurel, whose day job finds her working for the State of Texas as a Systems Analyst, with a background in accounting. This comes in very handy, because it lets Marc focus on the photography while Laurel handles the financial affairs of the business. Laurel also accompanies Marc on jobs from time to time.

It used to be that to get an aerial photograph of your property, you would have to hire someone with a plane or helicopter to take those pictures. And that could get very expensive, very quickly.  Well, not anymore.

 

With the advent of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) or "drones" as most people call them, getting those aerial photographs is not only much easier, but also much less expensive than the old days.  And the cameras on these UAS can take some astonishingly good photos and capture some amazing video footage, from 1080p HD all the way up to Ultra HD 4K video.

 

WhirlyBird Aerial Services currently uses one of the latest, most technologically advanced small UAS on the market, known as the DJI Phantom 4 Professional.  With this UAS, we are able to cover large areas with ease, or we can simply hover over your property and get photos from any altitude that will show off your property like no other photos can. The photos and video we capture are professionally edited and can be used as stand alone photos, or can be weaved into a moving slide show - accompanied by a musical background - that will wow your customers and provide them with a very unique view of the property.

 

This equipment is also used for our specialty services that we discuss throughout the pages on our site. Go HERE to learn more about our Specialty Services.

One of the more recent advancements in video technology is the ability to shoot 4K video.  You can walk into just about any store that sells televisions and they'll probably have at least one brand of 4K television on hand.  Watch one side by side with a standard television and you'll immediately understand the difference. 

We shoot all of our videos in Ultra High Definition 4K.  Since most people aren't able to view a 4K video on their computer, we can scale everything down to a 1080p resolution.  However, since it was shot in 4K, it still maintains much more clarity than your standard 1080p video. 

Do you have a project you're working on that needs some aerial footage? WhirlyBird Aerial Services has a growing collection of videos that you can purchase for your use for a very reasonable price. Check out our video collections on
POND5   –  StoryBlocks – or watch our sample video  HERE.  You can also see a working 3D Model HERE.
Don't see what you need?  Contact us about getting that custom footage for you. We'd be happy to help!
