FlyerCity Drone Services

Who Am I?

My name is Paul Tomblin, and I am a FAA Certified Commercial Drone Pilot and Instrument Rated Private Pilot. I operate in Rochester, New York. My goal is to provide drone video and photography to individuals and small businesses in the local area.

I gained expertise in shooting video and still photography from the air with a DJI Mini 3 Pro, a small but very powerful drone that produces sharp 4K video and stills. I took several courses in cinematography and video editing, and now that I'm ready to put that expertise into practice, I bought a DJI Air 3, a bigger and more capable drone with better cameras and more features.

As a single operator, I can do jobs at a far lower cost than larger firms. A simple job can be as inexpensive as $100. Cost depends on factors like travel time, getting FAA approval for flights close to the airport, and the amount of tree cover over the job site. You will receive the resulting videos and photos via a download link, but I can provide a thumb drive for a $10 charge. Normally I'll edit the video and images I take, but on request I can give you all the raw content as well. You will have full rights to the video or stills for whatever purposes you want, including posting to social media or using in advertising campaigns. I may ask to retain secondary rights to use it in demo reels or example pictures for my own advertising, but I will blur out any identifying information like house numbers or names on mail boxes.
