I make my home here in Upstate NY. I'm grateful for every day that I get to spend in the beautiful surroundings of the Hudson Valley and the Catskills. When you live in a stunningly beautiful place like this you want to capture it. Having been a photo enthusiast for many decades, I have now combined my love for aviation with photography and taken to the sky. 

The shift from hobby to business was a natural transition. Working outdoors and providing others with the ability to see things from above is what Flying Cow Drones is all about. Let me provide my passion for aerial imaging to your project. Reach out and let me help you capture things from a whole new perspective.
