"A picture is worth a thousand words. A drone panorama is worth a million."
Aerial view imagery helps allay concerns and can help justify the pricing assumptions that support a project’s financial projections. By conveying a project’s real world visual context to their equity and debt partners, developers increase their chances of securing capital for their projects and moving from vision to reality.
Aerial and panoramic images add striking, high-definition realism and create convincing, immediately accessible presentations that help the audience “see” the end product. Our aerial photos can be used as standalone photographs, incorporated into rendering backdrops, or as interactive 360 degree visuals.
Experienced development teams recognize that investing early on in this specialized aerial photography yields benefits that can be applied throughout the entire planning, design, development, financing, and marketing process. More and more developers are realizing that aerial view photography is no longer an investment that only makes sense for high-rises or luxury projects.
Clients will often hire us for a new shoot or license our existing photos. Our photos have been used in numerous national industry publications, sales pamphlets, RFP proposals, backdrops of architectural renderings, and international advertisement campaigns.

Our drone photography has been used to precisely simulate room views from specific floors and angles for view-based pricing and accelerated pre-leasing.
"Philly By Drone allowed us to better visualize the views from the different apartments and floors in the building, helping us refine our thinking on which apartments will have the most sought after views to arrive at a better marketing and pricing strategy."
We helped Allan Domb Real Estate showcase their Rittenhouse Square listings in an innovative way. Hover over the image below and click to see available rooms.
"For buyers looking at real estate, the three most important aspects are location, location, location. Take a building like Parc Rittenhouse for example. Within a five block radius there’s probably 75 restaurants. Seeing that visually is really powerful for a potential buyer."
Philly By Drone has adopted the 4K CinemaDNG RAW, Hollywood-level cinematography workflow. Our videos are recorded at 30x the data rate of the average professional drone camera, which results in crystal sharp, high dynamic range images. As a result, our drone cinematography has been featured on numerous property websites, national advertisement campaigns, and most recently, Philadelphia's Amazon proposal.
Our drone cinematography is being displayed in numerous residential and commercial property showrooms.
"One night I left the TV on with the drone shots of 1213 Walnut on repeat. The next morning when I walked into the office, I had received emails from pedestrians who had walked past the showroom at night and were amazed by the drone video."
