As Cincinnati’s trusted local drone aerial photography and videography company for 17 years, Perfect Perspectives is your #1 source for FAA-licensed and fully-insured drone services.

When you do a Google search for “Drone Services Near Me” odds are we are at the top of the list. Our services area covers all of Ohio, Indaina and Kentucky. You will notice that most other area drone companies deal mainly with residential real estate photography. We like to think we offer just a little bit more. This is because since 2005, we have been the Midwest’s Drone Service Leader with a local service area that includes all the following metropolitan areas:

– Lexington
– Toledo
– Akron
– Fort Wayne

and other cities across the Midwest.

When It Comes To Cincinnati Drone Services – We Are “The Real Deal”

Video Production Companies and Movie Studios from across the globe seek us out to fly RED and ARRI digital cinema cameras on Freefly Systems MOVI brushless gimbals, which are the gold standard in camera stabilization. Our state-of-the-art aerial video systems provide fast, safe, and affordable drone services including motion picture/television aerial filming, industrial inspections, high-end advertising/marketing videography, and ultra high resolution photography.

While our intergalactic headquarters is based in Ohio, we also have experienced, licensed flight teams strategically located in Louisville Kentucky, Indianapolis Indiana and Columbus/Cleveland, Ohio to meet all your drone video and aerial photography needs.

We Are The Midwest’s Leader in Drone Aerial Cinematography Services

The largest portion of our work as an Ohio Aerial Photography and Videography Services provider comes through repeat clients and referrals. Many of our clients have been with us for several years. They know that when we first began in the drone aerial photography services industry, getting great footage was next to impossible. It was very hard and often discouraging but we never lost hope and always tried to improve. We are so glad we did: the valuable lessons learned and relationships forged have been our life’s blessing. While there are many young entrepreneurs entering this arena who consider themselves experts, our opinion is this: becoming an expert takes more than a year or two and a credit card. Our clients who value quality and safety over a low cost tend to agree.

When It Comes To Putting Drones To Work, We Are Ohio’s “Drone Pioneers”

Many Ohio drone service providers claim that their pilots are “experts”, but our Drone Team is in a class all by itself. We started out with 22 years of experience as top-level, world-class RC helicopter competition pilots BEFORE we started Perfect Perspectives in 2005. This unmatched experience allows us to fly drones in challenging locations, both indoors (or out) safely, and with incredible precision, all without any GPS satellites. This is why so many national video production companies, TV networks and movie studios seek us out for television advertising spots, sporting events and feature films.

We Use Only The Highest-Quality, Most-Advanced Drone Systems and Camera Gear

We typically fly our Red Dragon/Weapon or Arri Alexa Mini cameras with full FIZ and cine primes. For lower budget productions, we offer the versatile DJI Inspire 2 X7 Super 35mm format drone. This drone offers 6K RAW and ProRes RAW recording with many interchangeable lens options. We also provide wireless follow focus, which greatly improves the overall cinematography possibilities, especially in low contrast situations and at night. Unlike our local competitors, we send two identical systems on every project so you never have to worry about not getting footage due to unexpected technical issues on set. We are also not a one-man-band. For our drone aerial cinematography, we use seasoned teams comprised of one pilot and camera operator for added safety and smoother, more consistent camera movements.

We Are Very Different

There are many things that make our Cincinnati Drone Company different. First of all, we entered the drone aerial imaging business before 99% of today’s Part 107 pilots bought their first drone. This extensive experience allows us to operate at a level few others can match. Also, did you know that the majority of Part 107 pilots do not fly drones for a living? Not so for us. Flying drones for motion picture and television filming, marketing, high-end real estate, and structural inspections is all we do. It is our full-time job – which is why we are better at it than almost anyone else. What this means is we don’t have to fight for time off from our day jobs to try to meet your production schedule. We won’t try to sway you to only fly after normal business hours or on weekends. We won’t try to down-sell you to use lower quality drones and cameras because that is all we own. Call our office and someone will be there to help you 7 days a week from 8 AM to 9 PM.

From Aerial Video & Photography To Industrial Inspections – We Got You Covered!

Another major difference is that we operate two separate divisions. Perfect Perspectives is our Motion Picture and Television division, while Drones That Work, LLC specializes in Industrial Inspections. One Cincinnati Drone Company with two visions to serve you better!

Please visit:

Drone Industrial Inspections

for more information on Flir Drone Thermal Imaging/Infrared Inspections, Elevated Structural/Critical Infrastructure Inspections, Precision Aerial Rigging, Aerial Traffic Studies and much more. We are equally adept in both areas, having operated at the highest levels in both for over 17 years. We are a preferred supplier for most of the major national TV networks, movie studios and Fortune 500 companies, while also having close business relationships with many of the world’s largest electric utilities. There is simply no other Cincinnati Aerial Photography Company that can match our varied experience, safety record and background.

We Are Ohio’s Experts In Building Facade Inspections Using Drones

Perfect Perspectives offers complete Cincinnati building envelope/facade inspections using 6K UHD drone video, 50 megapixel drone photography and Flir thermal imaging cameras. We offer this as a turn-key service, including all City permits for sidewalk/lane closures, traffic signs and barricades and a comprehensive final report of findings. We have completed large-scale structural inspections in both Cincinnati and Cleveland during 2019.

Another thing that sets our Cincinnati Drone Services apart is the fact that we carry up to $10M in aviation liability insurance. Insurance underwriters are very reluctant to issue such high coverage limits in an industry with limited risk/claims history. Because we have been in business for over a decade, have extensive operational documentation, and a perfect safety record for 17 years, we are one of the only US companies to carry such a high limit. This allows us to meet the commercial vendor requirements for any Fortune 100 or Fortune 500 company, such as General Electric and Amazon, for example. 

FAA Compliance and Authorizations

If you’re not already aware, there are FAA-authorized companies like us that do this work and many others who are unlicensed and do so illegally. It is possible to find illegal operators that are lower in cost but doing so exposes your organization to significant civil liabilities should an accident occur and is not recommended. Legal operators of Cincinnati Aerial Drone Services will have all of the following:
– FAA Section 333 authorization or FAA Part 107 Certification
– Aviation liability insurance (We carry $10M)
– FAA registered aircraft
– FAA airspace authorizations for flying near the larger towered airports

P. Rocker

I just wanted to send a personal thanks & a strong recommendation to Perfect Perspectives Aerial. I always pride myself on the “5 P’s” (Proper, Preparation, Prevents, Poor, Performance) Wendell & Leisa we’re very helpful on my last minute, spur of the moment Project LOL! I expressed my vision & it was executed perfectly. I’m forever grateful.

Eric Bauerle

Excellent experience and service. I found Perfect Perspectives when looking for a company to help with a large group photo shoot and do a little aerial work. Wendell was very responsive and accommodating. Their pricing is very reasonable. They arrived on time and were a big help to me while trying to orchestrate the large group. The quality of the pictures and video turned out great. It was fun working with Wendell and his team. I highly recommend them if you need any type of aerial imaging or photo shoots with large groups.

Jet Seal

Great experience! Both Wendell and Leisa were so helpful and professional. They were easy to work with and the finished product was fantastic. I highly recommend.

Brent Joseph

We loved working with Wendell at Perfect Perspectives. They were very professional, communicating clearly and promptly. The actual footage and photos were exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend!

Andy Case

Very quick turn around time and crystal clear quality! Wendell was amazing to work with and satisfied all editing requests, as there were some objects in the photo that I did not want (my fault). I was hesitant to hire someone to do the shoot to begin with, however, Wendell made sure I was completely satisfied before invoicing for the agreed upon quote. Will be recommending to everyone!!

Lydia Slusher

“Very pleased with their work and very fair pricing! I also found them to be very responsive, professional and helpful (even a year later when I needed some additional help with some editing with some of the images they took). I would recommend them for sure!”

Pete Schafer

“We have used Perfect Perspective multiple times to shoot marketing videos for my company. They are easy to work with and provide excellent final products. I would recommend them to anyone looking for high quality aerial imaging.”

Janet Heil

“I would high recommend Perfect Perspectives. Wendell and Leisa are very professional and efficient. They have taken the lead and presented us with beautiful, professional photographs that we will be able to use for years to come. They make our projects look great!”

Michael Bandolik

“I used Perfect Perspectives for a shoot in Columbus, OH on a college game day. They were very professional and provided us with great aerial footage for our show. Would definitely hire again.”

Srinath Balakrishnan

“I am a real estate developer who used Perfect Perspectives for aerial drone shots for a vacant property that I intend to purchase. In the past, I relied on aircraft aerial photographers which took weeks to schedule, was quite expensive and provided limited views of the site. What struck me in dealing with Perfect Perspectives, was how surprising simple the whole process was. I sent them the location of the property with instruction on shot angles and they responded promptly with a competitive quote and a few days later I was able to download multiple, high quality professional shots right at my desktop. The process was seamless, and Leisa and her staff were very friendly and easy to work with. I would most definitely use them again.”

Julie Davis

“Leisa and Wendell were easy to work with and they got the footage I needed and more!”

Megan Park

“Exceptional imagery – easy to work with – fast delivery of footage.”
