Why Nelson Aerial Productions


Having started nearly 3 years ago, we have the experience to tackle any idea.  Anyone can purchase a drone with a camera but few have the experience or know-how to be considered a professional.  As the old adage goes, “If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur.”


Aerial photography and cinematography is our passion and that’s why we are striving to improve each and every day.  We take the perfect blend of passion and hard work that results in a professionally finished product for our clients. This isn’t a hobby, it’s a passion driven career for us.


John Ruskin once said, “Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.”  We strive to offer the very best quality of any other aerial provider and we do so with constant effort.  We guarantee you’ll be blown away by the quality work we produce.




Our Latest Work

The award-winning golf course is the crown jewel of Hound Ears Club. Surrounded by lush, colorful mountains on just about every side, the 18-hole course stands as one of the preeminent clubs in the High Country, as well as North Carolina.

Surrounded by the Cone’s favorite place on earth, at the historic horse show grounds in Bayview, you can enjoy a spectacular display of the finest show horses in the country as they chase the silk and silver of the “Oldest Continuous Outdoor Horse Show In America”.

Fully Insured

Not only do we take what we do serious, we take the safety of our clients belongings very serious.  We are fully insured meaning you can be worry free while we are performing aerial services.  Many claim to have liability insurance for their aerial services but many times that is not the case.  Just because a photographer or videographer previously had insurance for their business doesn’t mean their drone is covered.  Another misunderstanding is that AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) members are covered.  The AMA only covers it’s members when they are flying at designated R/C air fields.  Be sure to request a COI before the damage has been done.





We are an aerial cinematography and photography team with a goal of telling your story the best way possible.  We believe a viewer may not remember the specifics of what they see but that they will remember how they feel and we approach all of our projects with that in mind.


We are based in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina but we also love to travel the world.  We are fortunate to have such an amazing place as our palette for aerial creativity.  Don’t hesitate to click the contact tab to reach out to us.


With all of the negative news regarding drones, we make it our priority to take safety very serious.  We are a fully insured drone company and we keep our flights within the regulations of the FAA (FAR 91.13).  Our safety precautions are exercised before and after every flight.
