Since 1999, Justin Moore has been photographing landscapes, nature and human beings as a professional photographer. In 2001, his passion for flying became a reality when he earned his Private Pilot certificate. He later earned an Instrument Rating and combined his passions as a freelance photographer for General Aviation News.
In addition to having his work published on more than seven covers of General Aviation News, Justin began capturing images while aloft in a late model Cessna 172 Skyhawk SP - he was hooked on the amazing views "from up there".
In late 2014, Justin was introduced to UAS (Un-manned Aerial Systems) - known commonly to the public as "drones", when he purchased a DJI Phantom FC40 - a small, multi-rotor "drone" with an attached camera. Needless to say, he was hooked. Drones combined Justin's two passions - flying and photography.
In 2015, he used his drones to capture low-altitude imagery to promote conservation, parks and communities by donating his time and equipment to promote public awareness of drones and to demonstrate their many positive benefits.
In 2016, Justin officially launched Airborne Aerial Photography - a FAA approved commercial aerial photography organization. Justin is a certificated Remote Pilot operating under the FAA's "Part 107" regulations.
In 2017, Justin became the nation's first Certified Drone Photographer after helping to pilot a new aerial photography certification program with the Professional Photographer's Association of America (PPA). The Certified Drone Photographer program is an intensive program that measures technical competence and aerial photography proficiency.
In 2019, Justin completed Drone Photography Basics : Your Guide to the Camera in the Sky published by Amherst Media - the book provided an opportunity for Justin to share his photography knowledge and experiences and to share beautiful low-altitude imagery of South Texas.
Using stabilized ground and aerial photography platforms, Airborne Aerial Photography provides stunning aerial photographs, cinematography and high resolution mapping that helps companies and organizations view their world and tell their story in whole new ways.
Justin utilizes the latest aerial photography platforms including the DJI Inspire 2, Phantom 4 Pro and Mavic 2 Pro - aerial platforms that provide exceptional image and video quality.
