Unmanned Aerial Systems for Visual Media


Working throughout the Western United States and beyond - with a base in the San Francisco Bay area of Northern California. EOS Aerial provides aerial cinematography and consulting to the commercial, print, and digital industries.

From the Alta X super heavy lift for Alexa Mini LF or Sony Venice, to DJI Inspire 3 drones with the X9 camera system, cinelifter drones carrying the Red Komodo and Black Magic cameras, to micro FPV drones for interiors and proximity work - we fly it all!

Our aerial camera systems will fly up to 85mph, operate in high winds, and shoot 8k raw with a full size sensor - or we carry the Arri Alexa Mini LF, Sony Venice, or Red camera systems - offering the full range of lift capacity to allow the client to achieve the specific look needed for the project.

Fully FAA licensed and carrying 5 million of liability insurance. With FAA waivers in place to allow +55lb operations, night filming, and extensive experience in FAA waivers for special airspace use - our team greatly expands the possibilities!

  • From the bidding stage and throughout production - permitting, permissions, shoot day logistics and all aspects of aerial photography - there is simply no other company in Northern California that can offer the comprehensive set of experience, equipment, resources, and knowledge to match what EOS Aerial brings to the project.
