About Our Fees

At AERcast™, our goal is to ensure our clients get the exact value they pay for and receive high quality services and products at an affordable price.

Each project is unique and pricing will vary depending on the scope of your project. However, AERcast™ Drone Photography understands that potential clients want to know the cost of our services.

The following rates, fees, discount packages, and guidelines are intended to remove any mystery regarding our pricing structure in order to help you make an informed purchasing decision.

Our “core” service is aerial photography, but we perform a variety of additional tasks in order to complete and deliver a finished product that meets or exceeds your expectations.

Because each project is different, certain projects require a lot more or less work than others.

Depending on your project requirements, an hourly rate may apply. However, we’ll do our best to quote a flat rate for our services when feasible.

Pricing for Drone Services

Our “Drone Services” (a.k.a. “data collection”) refer to the time and effort required to collect aerial data at your site.

Factors that affect this cost include travel time, setup, and time spent collecting aerial data (images and/or video).

Hourly Rate: $50*

Minimum Fee: $100 (hourly rate applies after first hour)

*In some cases, projects requiring extended periods of time onsite may be eligible for a reduced rate. For example, an outdoor event that requires us to be onsite for several hours. Contact AERcast™ for details.

Video Production & Editing Fees

For many projects, we spend more time in the editing phase (processing and revising your video) than the data collection phase (“Drone Services”).

Factors that contribute to this cost include the type and amount of customizations you request including:

  • Creation of specialty graphics/logos
  • Inclusion of still images provided by client
  • Music/audio background
  • Voice Over Narration
  • Number of revisions

Minimum Fee: $200 (includes 3 revisions)

Additional Revisions: $50 per revision

Internet Marketing Fees

Our Internet marketing services are totally optional, but highly recommended for some clients.

Our online marketing services are designed to complement your investment in our services. These services will:

  • Save you time
    • For example, we can create a customized, branded YouTube (and/or Vimeo) channel and upload your video(s)
  • Provide additional value
    • We can “optimize” your video to improve its “findability” in search results
