Owner | FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot
Long Island Drone Shots is a drone photography and videography company based on Long Island.
Jacob’s career in aviation began nearly 20 years ago when he served in the Navy as a Naval Aircrewman flying around the world in an SH-60B Seahawk helicopter. After completing his service, he became a flight instructor and corporate pilot certified to fly both the LearJet 35 and Falcon 900. While traveling throughout his career, documenting all of the places he had been through photos and videos became another passion of his. Eventually, he merged his skills in photography, videography and aviation by becoming an FAA certified drone operator, and this opened up the doors for him to capture views of the world from a whole new perspective. Living on and flying out of Long Island allows Jacob to offer his drone services locally, and he is proud to provide you with aerial media that will assist you in enhancing your own services and achieving your vision.
