Construction progress aerial photography is scheduled on or near the 15th or 30th of each month, and can be arranged to be done monthly or quarterly.

With each flight, you'll also receive a Free large poster print 30x20" -- great for display in the job site trailer to orient owners, sub-contractors, vendors, and guests.

See proofs quickly in an on-line gallery (we'll send you a hot link, easy way to view the pictures and share them with other decision makers).

If you do wish to choose only a few of them, shop a la carte. Or if you'd like to purchase all the digital files, we'll send them on cd. We also can send digital photo files via email.

If the photo site will be busy for several months with fewer exterior changes thereafter, we can postpone future photo flights until you are ready.

If your job site will be super busy, we can speed up our flights to once per week, then return to monthly or quarterly as needed.

Share the images with your marketing department. Show future clients, in pictures that speak a thousand words, what your company has accomplished.

If your company has more than one job site you would like aerial pictures for, Focal Plane offers savings for 'additional sites same flight' to photograph two or more locations at the same time.

Our construction progress flight schedule is on or about the 15th or 31st of each month (or within four or fives days based on weather, more of an issue in winter as you might imagine).

Frequent question - You'll often hear these views referred to as "oblique" aerials, meaning 'at an angle', (rather than looking straight down, or "vertical') or "bird's eye" views.

This perspective of the actual job site can be invaluable to orient partners and stakeholders, especially when used along with site plans and architectural drawings. Current aerial photographs bring them to life.

Even in the pre-planning phase, aerial photography is a powerful visual tool to orient prospective clients to a proposed site and your vision for it or a current client and sub-contractors to a chosen job site pre-construction.

"You two have been great to work with.

Whenever they (quarterly photos and poster print) showed up at the job site it was like Christmas!

We all couldn't wait to see them.

Thank you for these great pictures of the biggest job many of us will ever be involved in."

A series of aerial photographs are invaluable to track the progress of your construction project and maintain a historic record of the job. We'll provide views to encompass the entire job site, and close ups of specific areas of interest or milestone events.

Our aerial views are used to keep work on schedule, add visual impact to monthly progress reports for owners and lenders, and resolve or avoid disputes with neighbors, suppliers or other supporting partners.

"These pictures are great! We should have been doing them from the start." T.M., Project Manager
