Our Story


We specialize in aerial photography inside and outside of the Washington DC Flight Restricted Zone (FRZ) and Special Flight Rules Area (SFRA) and Restricted Airspace.

Being retired Air Traffic Controllers, we’re quite comfortable working in close proximity to large aircraft in busy airspace. We know the rules and how to follow them to get you images that a lot of other companies just don’t know how to do!

DCFOTO (our custom FAA call sign for our aircraft) covers the Mid-Atlantic Region and through our large Network of Aerial Photography companies, we can coordinate projects anywhere in the country.

We operate fixed wing airplanes, helicopters and drones for our work to provide the best aerial photography and videography for each individual project. We create high resolution, digital oblique and vertical imagery and aerial video. We have the latest technological equipment to produce high resolution vertical mapping and Geographic Information Services (GIS) products and services.

Our specialties are Commercial Real Estate and Construction Progress photography and Vertical Mosaic and Mapping imagery. We’ve been in business in Northern Virginia for over 12 years and value our reputation for excellent work and fast, friendly service.
