Thomas Wilson

Director of Drone Operations

Thomas Wilson first picked up a camera back in 2006. He quickly fell in love telling stories with video and pictures. That has led to more than 10 years of video production experience.

In 2014, Thomas bought and flew his first drone. He is always pushing to be more creative and this outlet changed from hobby to a career. In 2016, Thomas became an FAA-certified pilot when the licensing program came out. Shortly after, he started his own aerial production company working with many national clients.

We Love our Clients, And They Love Us
