During the winter of 2016-2017 we had amazing cloud views across Nevada. Many of the aerials below were shot east of Reno and Sparks near the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center during aerial updates on days when the views were spectacular.
The current Reno arch in downtown on Virginia Street was installed in 1987. Here is a nice commercial image of the shot from 2018:
The arch on Lake Street was the main arch from 1935 to 1965:
The orange patio chairs and pool area as reflected from the copper windows of the Grand Sierra Resort last week. I shot this aerial from about 1,500 feet.
Washoe Golf Course in Reno, Nevada was looking interesting from the air yesterday! This is the location of the original air field in about 1920 called Blanch Field!
Flying in the Minden and Carson Valley in mid December 2017, I caught a great view of the Minden Airport. Lake Tahoe is up high behind the mountains in the distance.
Wreaths Across America is a coordinated event across the US in over 1000 locations in all 50 states, at sea, and abroad. Here is the northern Nevada Chapter Wreaths Across America Video for 2017.

New apartment construction – Latitude 39 Apartments – on Double R Blvd in South Reno from earlier this week.
Photobooks are a great way to celebrate completing a project, especially when you can share it with others such as clients, vendors, and future prospects. Documenting your project is what we do, and what could be better than including aerials from both drone and airplane, commercial ground photography both interior and exterior, as well as some nice dusk shots!
An aerial construction update for the new Nevada Veterans Home on 10/28/2017. The construction site on the bottom, downtown Reno in the distant background.
Here is an aerial shot from last week of a train going over a bridge along the Truckee River. I followed the train by airplane for about 10 minutes before heading on. I liked the yellow trees and the yellow rail cars together in this shot.
Returning to Reno Tahoe International Airport (RNO) a caught a shot of the Ferrari Farms maze from the air. The 5 acre corn maze is a lot of fun to navigate, and I have to admit this aerial picture does not give away any real clues. If anything it should inspire people to take their families to this terrific place!
While traveling to Battle Mountain in the wee early morning hours to photograph at a mine, I stopped and captured a few shots at sunrise.
The USA Parkway – Infinity Highway – in Northern Nevada opens on September 8th, 2017. This video documentary shows our Aerial Imaging video presentation of the completed freeway and ribbon cutting event. This highway is also known as Nevada State Route 439. Enjoy watching!

An aerial view of the downtown Reno bridges along the Riverwalk Area. The newly completed Virginia Street Bridge can be seen here with its fantastic arches. This new aerial view is from July 14, 2017.
This morning I shot sunrise from the air. The clouds were especially helpful in getting rays and good colors just after the sun peeked over the mountains east of Reno. The building in the distance is The Grand Sierra Resort.
