For standard interior and exterior still photography used for Architectural and select Cabin Rental and Real Estate projects, TAI uses the Nikon D7200 with a full set high quality lenses and filters. TAI does not take the easy path of the HDR system.  TAI instead uses the multi flash and white balance system seeking vibrant colors and window clarity. 

Commercial / Construction Aerial Photography Services We Offer Include:

- Photogrammetry

- Surveying / Volumetrics

​- Thermal Imagery / Inspections

- Progression Monitoring 


TAI uses the DJI Inspire 1 Pro for its General Construction, Real Estate and Cabin Rental projects.  With its amazing X5 camera and its high HD resolution it has the ability to create stunning stills and videos.  TAI maintains the X5 lenses from standard, zoom, moderate wide angle to very wide angle to fit the project.  The Inspire with the X5 is far above the drone crowd and produces excellent photography stills and video.
