Dan Herron, Professional Photographer & FAA Licensed Pilot for Herron Aerial Photography

Herron Aerial Photography is the brainchild of Director of Photography and UAS Pilot, Dan Herron, our founder and chief day dreamer. Dan has 30 years of experience working as a professional corporate photographer and marketing manager for big brand names such as GE Energy, ABC Television News, IBM and various other advertising agencies – but he gave it all up to pursue his dream of working for himself. A few short months later Herron Aerial Photography was developed, the deals were signed and here we are today – a strong, vital company that seeks to re-shape how we ‘do’ digital photography.

A natural born Texan from Marble Falls, Texas; Dan set out to prove his worth in the photography and aerial photography fields at a young age. Since then he has created all sorts of different marketing projects, some of which could help you sell your own goods! From advertising to corporate, editorial to personal – Dan has photographed them all. Herron Aerial Photography are proud to announce that today you can hire us for anything from residential and commercial real estate projects to special occasions, weddings and celebrations – to motorsports events… We have even catered to schools and colleges who need pictures!

An eager aviation fanatic, Dan has spent the last six years working hand-in-hand with Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) as head photographer on their annual sustainability report. This makes an excellent example of the kind of work we do here at Herron Aerial Photography and you can view it here thanks to ABIA. Our founder also holds a BA in Mass Communication and an MS in Management, giving him great insights into what is needed to amp up your photographs from a commercial, profitable point of view.

When not working hard to bring you the best in licensed and insured flying photography; he is also a member of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, a member of the United States Association of Unmanned Aerial Videographers and a member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association – that’s right! There’s not a sky-based activity our man Dan can’t achieve!

Dan brings a new set of skills to an industry that sorely needs fresh ideas. His experience of flying the drone and taking fantastic aerial photography lends itself not only to movie and film production, but also to marking out landscapes in the construction industry, aiding in architecture, planning out resorts and taking photographs for insurance purposes. From News Production and the cinematic experience to weddings, hospitality and large events – here at Herron Aerial Photography we cover it all!

With Dan driving us forward we hope to achieve great things under the Herron Aerial banner – and you could be a part of that!
