Welcome / by Daniel Carrodus

Who am I?

My name is Daniel Carrodus, I am a bay area local and native. My back ground is in Game Art and Design, but I have been working with movie editing programs for years. Photograph has also been a large part of my life too and combining the two has been a dream. On top of that the advances in technology has really upped the game in the new perspectives that we can give to our audiences in telling stories about the world.


What is Take Flight Optics?

Take Flight Optics is my company where we strive to bring new and fresh view points on the world. To show people something that makes them really think about how beautiful that world is, and we achieve this with three main pieces of gear.

1. We use a DJI Inspires 1 quad-copter to get beautiful sweeping over-head shows of our subject.

2. For everything on the ground and close up we use a GH4 DSLR Camera. 

3. And lastly we use our creative minds to come up with new and exciting shots that one can only dream of.
