Copyright notice:
All images created by Mid-Atlantic Aerial Photography, LLC are protected by U.S. Copyright Laws and have been registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.  They are not to be downloaded or reproduced in any way, without the express written permission of Mid-Atlantic Aerial Photography, LLC.  By entering this site you accept these terms.  Any unauthorized reproduction or usage of these images constitutes a violation of applicable law and is subject to civil and criminal penalties (17 USC – Sec. 501 & 504). 

U.S. copyright law states that the right to reproduce photographs remains exclusively the right of the photographer, unless the photographer explicitly sells those rights to another party in a written contract.  This is true even if the photographs were originally commissioned and purchased by a client.   In other words, a customer can order photographs of their property (or person), pay for the photographs, receive copies of the photographs, but they are forbidden to reproduce those photographs in any form without the consent of the photographer.  Frequently a photographer will grant limited rights to reproduce the photos for advertising or other purposes, for a fee.  Depending on the scale of the reproduction rights requested, Mid-Atlantic Aerial Photography will usually grant limited rights for a fee of $200-$5000.  For more information on U.S. copyright laws visit the United States Copyright Office official website at www.copright.gov

No images are within Public Domain. Use of any image as the basis for another photographic concept or illustration is a violation of copyright.

Mid-Atlantic Aerial Photography, LLC strongly protects our copyright interests. In the event that an infringement is discovered you will be notified and invoiced at a minimum 20x the STANDARD FEE for unauthorized usage and/or prosecuted for Copyright Infringement in U.S. Federal Court where you will be subject to a fine of US $150,000 statutory damages as well as all court costs and attorneys' fees. By entering this site you are agreeing to be bound by the terms of this agreement. Entrance to site is expressly on these conditions which embodies all of the understandings and obligations between the parties hereto. ALL ENTRIES ARE LOGGED.

Flight Fees and General Pricing:  
Stock Images are priced accordingly on our website, and are available for immediate download.

Custom Aerial Projects, including Progressive Shots, are just that, custom.  The prices for custom projects are not published here, but are quoted in writing prior to accepting the mission.  The time required for a photo flight may vary considerably due to the complexity of the assignment. We will provide a quote for the flight after a detailed conversation with you to better understand your needs. Our typical assignment is flown in fixed wing aircraft. Helicopter photo flights are also available for special applications where photos must be taken from less than 500’ above the ground. The base cost for a standard photo flight for a single location is determined by the distance of the site from our base of operations in Richmond, Va. Note that if you have multiple locations to photograph within close proximity of each other, we can combine the photo flights and will provide a quote for a lower fee per site.

  • Local Flight = Within 60 Mi of Richmond International Airport, RIC
  • Within every 60 miles exceeding that perimeter there will be a $120 upcharge (subject to change).
  • A $50.00 administration fee will be charged for flights within the Washington security ADIZ due to additional required security and flight plan filing processes.

Premium Digital Enhancement Options:
The visual appeal of an image can be significantly improved through digital manipulation. Our image processing expert will enhance your photo by adjusting color balance, saturation, and contrast in specific areas of the image. The sky will become a little bluer, and the grass a little greener.

Premium Digital Enhancement: $50/picture.

Custom Digital Retouching:
Some customers have very specific requirements for digital enhancements to their images, such as lightening a specific area, removing a shadow, or altering the color of a building. In addition, our customers frequently want graphical labeling added to the photos such as street naming, or labels pointing to specific landmarks or features of interest. For these requests, please let us know or provide guide prints clearly marked with your requirements.  The cost is assessed in 1 hour increment, with a 1 hour minimum.

Custom Digital Retouching: $40/hour
