What People Are Saying...
"Having had no prior airmen training, I went into the test the first time only reviewing the study material that the FAA provided. I thought to myself, "I'm a good test taker, I scored high on my SAT. How hard could this be?" Needless to say I was in for a rude awakening, and promptly failed the test.
Frustrated, I went home and began to study the same material, the same way again. I was the very definition of insanity. My father suggested that I enroll in a course and said that I did not need one. But finally age and wisdom won out, and I enrolled in Drone Launch Academy.
So, I signed up and per my personality (impulsive and determined), competed the entire course in 1 day. When I say the entire course, I mean the entire course; videos, documents, quizzes, tests and all! I went from a 58% on my first part 107 test, to an average of 90% or better on all the quizzes and test provided by DLA!
But, I am a sceptic at heart. I decided to find other practice tests online and see if I could pass them...and I did with an average of 86%!
This morning, I took the part 107 again feeling prepared and confident because of the material covered in this course. I want to say thank you because I passed with an 87%! Thank you so much for providing and excellent training at an affordable price."

"Drone Launch Academy helped me go from no prior knowledge about FAA regulations for UAS operations to passing the Part 107 UAS certification exam on my very first attempt!
I enjoyed the content of the course, which provided guided videos, easy-to-understand text, and plenty of practice questions that utilized actual materials from the FAA exam itself. I felt confident after completing the course that I would be able to pass the exam.
The convenience and format of the course was exactly what I was looking for in training and test prep material! Thank you for creating this wonderful resource!"

Aerial Photo Pro
Your Fast Track to Professional Drone Photography
What is Aerial Photo Pro?
Do you want to make stunning drone photos but don’t really know where to start or how to capture and edit those “WOW” drone shots?
Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?…
What’s the best software to edit drone photos with (that’s also inexpensive)?
What are the best “go to” settings on the drone for great photography?
Can I get really great photos with the drone I already have?
Do I need to use filters or other add-ons when taking photos? What do those even do?
I hear some people charging hundreds of dollars per hour for drone work. Is that even possible?
Can I and should I be shooting in HDR with my drone? What even IS HDR?
What are the best altitudes and angles to take photos at when shooting things like real estate?
How do I take and edit a great sunset photo with my drone?
How do I get my drone photos to look crisp, sharp, and not blurry?
If you've ever struggled with any of the above questions, you're not alone.
Many drone pilots hear that drone photography is just a "race to the bottom" and that its impossible to make money. That is simply not the case (if you acquire the right skills and know how to get clients to find you).
You might be thinking, "I don't believe you." We know its hard to think this can be possible, given that people seem to always complain on social media about low rates and no work. So we wanted to share a few screenshots of Alex's rates and people hounding him for business...
PEOPLE WANT PHOTOGRAPHERS.
NOT JUST DRONE PILOTS.
People Want Photographers, Not Just Drone Pilots
Beautiful drone photography is generally achieved through having the skills of a good photographer, rather than just being a great pilot. Having a drone simply allows you to achieve a vantage point that's usually not accessible with regular cameras. But framing the shot, adjusting the camera settings, and knowing how to edit the photo afterwards are more photography skills, and not as much drone flying skills.
Just because you own a drone, doesn't mean you'll automatically be able to take great drone shots. But lucky for you, in this course, we breakdown EVERYTHING you need to know in order to take drone photos that WOW people.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have access to the course?
Once you are enrolled in Aerial Photo Pro, you will have lifetime access. That includes any future updates and improvements we make to the course (new drones are always coming out, so I’m sure there will be updates), as well as any additional stock footage or files we add. We got you covered!
Do I need a drone to take this course?
Nope! If you don’t have a drone yet (or don’t have one that you like), don’t sweat it. We are including a TON of unedited drone photos for you to use as you follow along with Alex’s instruction throughout the course. These drone photos were captured by Alex specifically to provide to you in the course.
Do I need a Part 107 license (aka - commercial drone license) to take this course?
While you don’t need a Part 107 license (aka – “Remote Pilot Certificate”) to take this course, you DO need a Part 107 license to operate a drone for commercial purposes. If you are planning on flying drones for commercial use, we highly recommend obtaining your Part 107 license. Drone Launch Academy offers a Part 107 Exam Prep Course you can use to study for the exam. See below for more information.
What if I don’t like the course? Is there a money back guarantee?
You know it. If you sign up for Aerial Photo Pro, go through the course, and don't think it was worth what you paid, let us know within the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund. No questions asked. We want this to be totally risk free for you.
What software is used in this course?
This course uses Adobe Lightroom. Adobe offers a free trial for this software, but if you want to just purchase the software, the subscription is $10. (Personally we recommend just springing for the $10/month. If you are going to be working with photos, Lightroom is a must.) You can check it out at the following link: https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom.
