R. J. Aerial Photo was started
over 30 years ago because of my love for flying and photography.
All the time I was flying, I kept seeing the beauty of California
and decided I needed to capture what I could on film. I don't
go out with the intention of photographing anything specific.
I go flying and photograph whatever happens to be there. I have
many clients including most of the fast food companies (Taco
Bell, Carl's Jr., Pizza Hut, Boston Market etc.) and many real
estate companies (Grubb & Ellis, CB Commercial, Cushman,
Cornish & Carey, etc.). Photographing sites for them takes
me all around California and Nevada. I started with a canon 35mm
camera and now use both medium and digital format cameras to
get the higher quality for the large pictures. My favorite camera
is a medium format Pentax but I use my Canon 10.1 megapixel camera
One of my favorite flights, which I do at least once a month
is over the Golden Gate bridge and San Francisco down to Half
Moon bay for clam chowder at Barbara's Fish Trap restaurant.
