SkyPix, the premier helicopter aerial photography firm in St. Louis, is proud to announce the launch of its new website, www.skypixstl.com. The new site is filled with slideshows of example aerial photos from the SkyPix portfolio. Potential clients looking for aerial photography or aerial videography services in the St. Louis metro area can now browse a wide range of photo samples from SkyPix. Samples include beautiful aerial photos of familiar St. Louis area landmarks such as Busch Stadium, Chaifetz Arena, Edward Jones Dome, Savvis Center & Peabody Opera House, the St. Louis Zoo, Missouri Botanical Gardens and the Forest Park Jewel Box, as well as local homes and businesses.
The updated SkyPix website also features new content dedicated to various industry segments including Residential, Commercial, Construction, Agriculture, Legal, Insurance, Real Estate, Hospitals and Churches & Schools. Plus, SkyPixSTL.com offers interactive forms for prospective customers to Request an Estimate or Order a Custom Photo Shoot online.
SkyPix distinguishes itself from other aerial photography companies in the St. Louis area for several reasons. Unlike other aerial photographers using smaller 2-seat helicopters, “SkyPix St. Louis flies the Robinson model R44 helicopter, among the safest and most reliable helicopters ever produced,” explained Charlie Duchek, Chief Pilot and Owner of SkyPix St. Louis, LLC. “The R44 can handle up to 4 individuals: the pilot plus up to 3 passengers, depending on weight and fuel load.” As a result, SkyPix can accomodate homeowners or business owners who wish to ride along for the photo flight.
SkyPix is ready to serve the aerial photo and aerial video needs of clients throughout the entire St. Louis Metro & surrounding areas, including the Metro East. SkyPix is also available for custom shoots across Eastern/Central Missouri (including Lake of the Ozarks) and Southern Illinois.
SkyPix St. Louis, LLC provides professional helicopter aerial photography and videography in the St. Louis metropolitan area. SkyPix serves all types of properties, including homes, businesses, farmland and construction sites. Plus, SkyPix was started by one of the most experienced helicopter pilots in the country; Owner & Chief Pilot Charlie Duchek has more than 20 years of experience in aerial photo work. And the SkyPix photographer, Steve Schulte, is an experienced pro who specializes in aerial shots.
