Mitch is a transportation entrepreneur and photographer based out of Cody, Wyoming. Mitch began exploring the realm of aerial photography, with high tech drones. Unsatisfied with the limitations of drones, he began photographing primarily straight down from fixed wing aircraft. Mitch has now found the sweet spot between the two by developing a system that incorporates a Bell 407 helicopter, with a Shot Over gimbal mounted to the nose, which contains a 150 MP Phase One Industrial camera. This state-of-the-art system provides outstanding image quality and output superior to either of the previous iterations. Mitch is currently working with a retired NASA scientist to explore the worlds of photorealistic mapping with 10 times the resolution of Google and virtual reality of real world places.
Innovative, experimental, and dedicated to extreme quality, Mitch Rouse Aerials is pushing the boundaries of manned aerial photography.
