Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT KIND OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY DOES SKYTECH DO?
The majority of our work is performed from our own fixed wing aircraft. This is the most efficient platform and the least expensive to our customers. Occasionally we use helicopters for low-level work. Skytech also has a 50’ truck mounted tower-cam system .
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Every project is different. The distance, the aircraft type, how the images will be used are all taken into consideration. If we can get to the site and back to our base at Pierce County Airport, within an hour flight time, the mission would fall under our basic pricing. Please call us for more information on pricing.
WHAT GEOGRAPHIC AREA DOES SKYTECH COVER?
We routinely fly throughout Western Washington. Weather permitting, we work east of the Cascades. Through our affiliations, we can provide quality aerial photography throughout the world.
WHAT TYPE EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
We use Canon’s Professional line of digital cameras, stabilized lenses and filters. Currently we shoot with the Canon 1DS Mark III system with Canon “L” series lenses. We use wide format professional printers from both Canon and Epson.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY PICTURES?
Weather permitting, we can start almost immediately.
WHAT DO WE GET?

HOW DO WE GET THE IMAGES ON LINE?
We supply our clients with password protected files on our site. We do everything for you and send you the link to your images.
