Derrick helped me to accomplish the project I had in mind in just the right way. he was accommodating, and thorough in communicating the rundown of my ideas. He made sure I was well informed and comfortable with the follow through. I learned his experience in aerial photography stretches back to 2011, and it shows. By the end of the project, he told me to contact him if I had any further questions, or even if I just wanted to talk about my experience, or, discuss further ideas. 10/10 would recommend Derrick for his concise work, and dependable follow through!

Beth Mattias
Outstanding service and very professional. I needed an aerial videographer to film our 140 acre ranch and the animals surrounding it. We needed action video along with editing and music to complete our project. I found Hot Shots Aerial Photography and thankful that I did. Derrick at Hot shots was the right pick. Let's just say that he exceeded our expectations. Derrick arrived early, shot the event, and displayed professionalism. The rest is history. We highly recommend Hot Shots Aerial Photography and will be using them in the future. Thank you Derrick.
