Palm Springs Aerial Photography

Fine Art Palm Springs Aerial Photography and Video

Flying UAS with a fine art quality camera attached has become a passion.  I do aerial photography and video for my fine art work and because I love to fly.

To achieve my top notch aerial fine art, I do use commercial grade gear.

I also maintain FAA registration and follow FAA guidelines at all times.

For the gear heads out there. Here’s what we fly:

  • DJI s900 w/ e1200 propulsion system
  • DJI Zenmuse Z15 GH4 HD gimbal
  • Panasonic GH4 camera with the Olympus Zuiko 12mm f2.0 lens  (This is a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) sensor which you can see below is much larger than a GoPro or DJI Inspire X3.)

Actual DJI s900 with the Zenmuse Z15 GH4 HD and GH4 Camera.


This diagram shows you the difference in image sensor size.

The DJI Inspire Pro X5 also has an MFT sensor, however DJI compresses its video to 60 Bits per second where as the Panasonic Lumix GH4 camera shoots at 200 bits per second. This gives me much, much better low light shots and video without artifacts. IE, the video looks way smoother with better highlight and shadow detail

We generally shoot in 4K at 30 fps and 200 bit per second recording rate and then in post we pull out the stills you need and we end up with both commercial quality stills and video.

Here are links to some samples of my artwork. Where a UAS was used, all of the work was done at no charge.

NOTE: For you, ,me and the public, safety and privacy are top concerns of mine.  When I’m shooting aerial photography and video. I plan ahead, stay out of FAA air space, notify property owners/managers and the FAA when I’m going to fly.  If you are a novice pilot or would simply like to learn more please feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to share my knowledge.Coachella Fest Aerial Photography by Scott Campbell Coachella Fest 2007 Crane Panorama Photograph

Pet Portraits Gallery

Palm Springs Pet Portrait Photography by Scott Campbell

Friendly and fun pet portraits

Doing pet photography for owners of their loved companions is possibly the most rewarding photography I get to do.  Specifically Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs Pet Portrait Photography is wonderful because so many of the people in our area truly pamper their pets and treat them as a member of the family.  Many of our residents either do not have children or their children have moved out.  Their pets are their new children and their companions.  It’s wonderful to see the number of pets with their human companions walking El Paseo in Palm Desert or Palm Canyon in Palm Springs.  Pets are a big part of our every day lives here in Palm Springs area.

As a result, we get to have a blast photographing pets, playing with them, dressing them up, treating them and laughing with them and their owners… er humans.

Photographically capturing those moments with my pet photography is a wonderful experience for all.  We all have fun, especially the pets.

Ask my family, for some reason animals seem to love me, they come right up to me to be pet, seem to listen or understand my direction and seem to trust me.  Hey, call it a gift.  I love it and use it well with my pet photography jobs.

So lets go to the park, to your pet’s favorite place to play, to your garden or the studio and capture some wonderful pet photography of your pet and hey, you too.

As a Palm Springs Photographer my rates are very reasonable.  For more information contact me here.

Fine Art Photographer Gallery

Fine Art Photographer, Awarded, Juried & Published, Scott Campbell Photography


Palm Desert / Palm Springs based Fine Art Photographer – unusual, eye catching and truly interesting

My favorite locations to create fine art photography include the Salton Sea, Joshua Tree, Amusement Parks, Beaches and abandoned human creations.  I like to use unusual techniques both in the camera and Photoshop.  Lenses such as Lens Baby, Fish-eye and tilt shift are always in my kit.  Using multiple exposures to give the option of creative High Dynamic Range, HDR, fine art photography is something I almost always do in every shot. Thinking out of the box to creatively use long exposures, panoramic views, low light, night time, unusual angles and ways of looking at things that makes the viewer think at least twice is now second nature.

I have created a number of galleries that focus on different aspects of my artistic photography works and I will continue to add more as I compile them together.
