The best drone imagery in Milwaukee
MKE Drones is the top aerial service provider in Milwaukee, providing you with the best quality. Compare our videos and photos to others and you can see the difference. All of our drone photos and video are done in a safe manner that complies with all FAA commercial drone regulations. But we don't just shoot the photo and video - we edit everything to meet your needs. We have worked for a lot of national and local companies in all types of shooting situations from video production shoots to simple site visits to gather images when it fits our schedule. Below is just a small sample of some of the projects we have worked on over the last few years.
Dead of Winter tv series
In 2018 we were approached to shoot for a TV Series on ID Network called Dead of Winter. The shows producers were so thrilled working with us that they have now worked with us on a second season and flown us out on location for shooting. When it came down to it the extra cost was worth knowing they were getting quality content as oppose to a local provider who they don’t know and trust. More info on the show is here: Dead of Winter
Steins Garden and home
When spring comes to Milwaukee everyone needs to get plants and get the home ready for fun outside. So when Steins Garden and Home wanted to get new TV commercials ready they came to us about shooting inside their store. While the ground shots were not done by us, we did get a ton of great floating shots flying through the store for their 2019 ad campaign.
We could not have been more proud when Milwaukee Downtown contacted us about creating a new video for their website. This city is our home and we are all about promoting Milwaukee. So after hitting up some of the most iconic views and popular spots in the city as well as a few events we created an amazing short video that is now featured on their homepage at www.milwaukeedowntown.com.
TV productions can be involved, but tracking a JBL bus driving through the streets of Milwaukee was on a whole new level. The opening shot for the video is one that we grabbed, along with other various aerial shots sprinkled into the video. Not the easiest thing to locate and track a specific bus driving through city streets, but we managed to get the requested shots on each take giving the director multiple options to choose from for the final video. Sadly, no we did not get to meet Giannis.
milwaukee harbor district
In 2018 the Harbor District started working to market areas of land that held abandoned buildings became available for development. This was an extensive shoot done over a few days that covered a lot of locations around the very large land district. Most of the district lies inside the Milwaukee Mitchell Airport airspace, so airspace authorizations had to be secured for each shooting location.
Light the Hoan
MKE Drones was a proud contributor to the video work used for Light the Hoan. Our shots were gathered at sunset to get that amazing glow of the sky in the distance. These shots were done in collaboration with other marketing agencies in the Milwaukee area and edited by a local firm who also did the website work for the project. The comment was made by other teams that they never knew that drones could get shots like these. We are proud of our city, and proud of the quality work that we do.
Plover, WI farm fields were the perfect location for a shoot we worked on with Buzzfeed as they brought city people out to the farm. Our shots were featured throughout the video as we did establishing shots, and even tight shots flying just feet away from a harvesting combine and inches of the tops of corn stalks. This shoot had a full production staff and we were a key piece.
the corners of brookfield
Construction has been going on all over Milwaukee, but The Corners has been an exciting and highly visible project for the Waukesha area. They reached out to MKE Drones to provide photos and video for business to business meetings and for their website. We not only shot all the video footage, but edited the entire project. The results speak for themselves. Watch the video!
Milwaukee County Parks
The incredible lights display put on in Boerner Gardens each fall just made sense to be shot with a drone. The Milwaukee County Parks came to us about shooting multiples sites, and thanks to our waiver from the FAA allowing us to fly at night, we were able to legally get great footage and put together this great video.
When a school is right in the heart of a city it can be hard to share the buildings, locations, and views with new or prospective students. We helped Marquette University get unique first time views of buildings all over their campus, and effectively show its relation to downtown Milwaukee with video and photos from key locations of the university.
Every year Doors Open is a city wide event that provides the opportunity for visitors to tour hundreds of building that people have never been in before, and might never see. The 2017 promotional video was shot and edited by MKE Drones. The music comes from a popular local Milwaukee Band.
lake express ferry
We have done multiple shoots for the Lake Express both in Milwaukee, WI and Muskegon, MI. Getting great, smooth shots while tracking a moving subject is not always easy, but the Lake Express keeps coming back to us because they know the level of quality they will get.
