Introduction: FAA Part 107 certified for drone commercial work. •Commercial Real Estate (OM’s, listings) •Architectural (website, print) •Industrial/manufacturing photography: Construction progress, product installations and manufacturing process. About me... FOCUS - I focus solely on commercial work, aerial and ground: Commercial real estate (OM’s & listings), architectural, industrial/manufacturing. I do not shoot weddings. LEGAL & SAFE - Check my FAA certification. Go to the FAA gov website > airmen registry > search Paula Woodlief - FAA Remote Pilot #4304421. LIABILITY - Liability insurance will not cover incidents by an unlicensed pilot. Ask before hiring, “Are you FAA certified”? Hire legal pilots. It’s the law. QUALITY - Many drone pilots are not skilled editors. I am both. Masterful post processing makes the difference between a useable image and the “money shot”. REVIEWS - The best recommendations come from customers. I am dependable, a good communicator and skilled. I care about your business and strive to deliver you strong, positive images that increase visual interest and expedite sales. FAQ’S Q: If you own a business, can you hire anyone with a drone for aerial photography/video? A: No. The drone pilot must hold an FAA Part 107 certification, be insured and properly trained. Q: Can realtors use a personal drone for real estate listings? A: Only if they are FAA certified. If not, you are considered a drone hobbyist, thus, you cannot “hobby” for business or another person whether money is exchanged or not.

Paula is wonderful to work with and goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with what she is providing. She is a problem solver and knows her stuff as it relates to FAA restrictions/flight paths. She produces exceptional work and communicates efficiently. I would recommend Paula for any and all aerial photography.
