It’s official.  This beautiful NW Wisconsin lake home on Nelson Lake just closed this morning.  Last spring it was one of the first homes I photographed with a drone.  There were several during those first couple weeks; I wanted to quickly leverage my investment in learning and hardware.  Last winter I studied hard so I could pass my FAA Part 107 test and earn my sUAS Remote Pilot Certificate.  That way I could legally fly a drone for commercial purposes.  And then there was an investment in the drone itself, plus all its various accessories.  Since then, both investments have paid off by allowing me to capture spectacular aerial stills and video that wouldn’t have been possible in any other way.

The aerial drone photos of this lake home helped showcase its private, end-of-the road location on Nelson Lake.  The home and its surroundings were just as beautiful up-close, and I was also able to to create some great interiors and exteriors from images I’d captured with my “regular” camera.  To see a few examples, just scroll on down.
