About HawkEye Aerials

HawkEye Aerials is an owner/operator business in Kelseyville, California devoted to providing low-altitude aerial photo and video services to businesses and the general public in the surrounding area, including Lake, Sonoma and Napa Counties. In addition, we have now incorporated HDR interior and exterior still photography based on our benchmark camera, the Nikon D810, to provide full spektrum, top of the line imaging to real estate and commerical property sales presentations.

Our services can be used for real estate sales, to showcase homes, ranches and estates for private owners, surveys of construction sites and forestland, and many other purposes where a stunningly unique perspective is required from photographs or video.

Whether you just want still photography for interior exterior coverage, aerial photography and video, or a combination of the two for dynamic virtual tours, Hawkeye can provide what you need.

HDR Photography - What Does it mean and what does it do?

HDR stands for "High Dynamic Range," and it is used extensively in high-end real estate and commercial property photography because of it's ability to render interior photos with all the detail and brightness of the original scene.

Even the best cameras using conventional photographic processing techniques sturuggle to capture details in both the dark and light areas of a room, especially when it comes to windows. HDR technology allows you to see the into the darkest corners, and the scenery out the windows both. Explore our samples to see the difference! You'll never want anything else from now on.
