Why Nelson Aerial Productions


Having started 2 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.


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

Our latest video comes in the wake of winter storm Octavia that brought snow and sleet to Boone on Monday, February 16th.  The storm was the largest impact winter storm of the season but with it were some beautiful conditions to capture aerials.  Don’t let the motionless, turned off, windmill fool you though because winds were 20+ mph gusting to over 30 mph when most of this was filmed.  Be sure to watch the video in the highest quality by clicking the gear icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video.  As always, be sure to check back often to see our latest work!

Never say “I can’t”, say “How can I?” Never allow yourself to close your mind off to things you might think were impossible. Always be looking for ways to make the “impossible” possible.Jordan A. Nelson

We are an aerial production 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 that is what we are all about.


Boone, nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, is the place we call home.  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 keep our flights within the regulations of the FAA and are advocates to others to do the same.  Our safety precautions are exercised before and after every flight.
