Hi! My name is Jake, owner of Sky573. I am a professional drone pilot, videographer, and photographer with over 10 years of experience.

In 2011, I built and launched my first drones to assist and volunteer with search and rescue efforts. My love for connecting and helping others evolved into what is now Sky573. My passion is simple, I thrive on seeing my clients smile, making them happy, and filling their needs. Client satisfaction is my top priority. It is my goal to ensure that each client’s shoot meets exact customer needs.

  Sky573 specializes in working with businesses to produce digital content. From creating commercial ads to real estate advertising, to photo and video social media packages for all business types. I carry a FAA Part 107 commercial pilots license with night operations endorsement.

Contact us so we can capture the perfect shot for you to grow your business. We also work with families and individuals in the creation of family films and portrait work.

  Thank you for stopping by. Please scroll down below to see a few samples of my work. Click the contact tab to get in touch with me.
