About Soaring Vistas Media

Owned and operated by Los Angeles-based photographer / pilot Jim Brammer, Soaring Vistas Media is a fully-insured,
FAA 333 Exempt and Part 107 Certified drone services company. In addition to being sought after for his skills and experience in professional photography, videography and post-production, Jim is also a highly-skilled drone pilot, making him uniquely qualified to offer world-class photography, videography, cinematography and data collection services with a primary focus on the safe, ethical and professional operation of small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) or "Drones".

Soaring Vistas Media’s safe and highly-stable, custom-built sUAS platforms employ redundant flight systems and three-axis gimbals, stabilized by inertial management systems, to provide imagery and video from unique perspectives. We leverage real-time video downlinks to a ground-station monitor, providing the pilot/photographer team and Client with a view of exactly what our flying camera sees. This allows us to dynamically adjust framing and composition "on the fly" to ensure that we capture the right shot every time.

Core Markets
Our primary focus is in the following major areas:

  1. Commercial and residential real estate, land development and marketing, enabling agents, brokers and developers to showcase their listings and projects
  2. Marketing and precision agriculture diagnostic projects for the wine, agriculture and farming industries
  3. Pre-construction, progress monitoring, infrastructure inspection and marketing for the construction industry.

Additionally, we are available for any project that calls for a safe, professional and respectful approach to aerial photography, videography, cinematography and data gathering. Working directly with your marketing, creative, engineering and diagnostic teams, we provide industry-leading quality and take great pride in our collaborative approach, flexibility, creativity and positive attitude toward accomplishing every assignment.

Safety First
​At Soaring Vistas Media, safety, integrity and professionalism are at the heart of everything we do. We comply fully with all FAA regulations and our aircraft receive regularly-scheduled preventative maintenance. Prior to every mission, we conduct a detailed multi-point inspection of the UAS and surrounding area, walking the flight area to note hazards and establish a safety perimeter and contingency plan. We are proud of our flawless safety record and reserve the right to refuse any engagement due to safety concerns.

Respect for Privacy
The use of UAS platforms for commercial photography and data gathering has become highly controversial due to individual concern for violation of privacy. Simply stated, we will not accept engagements that violate the privacy of others.
