Avid Aerial / Avid Photographic was founded in 2004 and has prided itself on providing high quality Aerial and Ground Commercial Imagery ever since.  The product of a personal passion, James Davis (Owner, Photographer, Pilot) has put his two main loves together into a growing business.  As a child James was more likely to be pestering his parents for a ride to the local airport than to the local baseball field.  Earning his Private Pilots License while in high school he then proceeded on to flight college through Pan Am International Flight Academy where he earned his Commercial Pilots license as well as numerous other ratings.  After completing this program his love of the arts and photography naturally combined itself with his flying.  Wanting to produce the best photographic work possible the decision was made to return to school and expand his skills offered through the business by completing a BFA Degree in Photography.

    The majority of aerial photographers operating in the current market are simply pilots looking to earn some extra money with a camera while having little to no professional photographic background.  The result is in the images, they speak for themselves.  Avid uses modern extremely high quality professional equipment to deliver the best imagery when combined with our knowledge of the field.  Being that this is a passion we simply refuse to deliver mediocre work.  If the work is not up to our standard we will not deliver it to a client.  Please feel free to ask any questions and we are always happy to talk about ideas and potential shoots with clients.  No job is too big or too small for us and we pride ourselves on fast turnaround times on shooting and editing.  Avid is located in Asheville, North Carolina at the Asheville Regional Airport.  When you need images done right the first time give us a call at 330-718-3311.  We greatly appreciate our great clients!
