New Gallery – Landscape


At DroneVU Studios we have started a new gallery for landscape footage. In this gallery we will turn the ordinary into extraordinary, surrealistic, and maybe even a bit unrealistic.

The Landscape gallery will feature ordinary landscape photography that has been post processed using different modern post processing techniques to create dramatic landscape footage for our viewers to enjoy.

Biltmore Estate – Largest Houe In America

DroneVU Studios went on location to the Biltmore Estate located at 1 Approach Road, Asheville, NC to film the exterior of the largest house in the United States.

The Biltmore Estate is a large (8,000 acre) private estate and tourist attraction in Asheville, North Carolina. Biltmore House, the main house on the estate, is a Châteauesque-styled mansion built by George Washington Vanderbilt II between 1889 and 1895 and is the largest privately owned house in the United States, at 178,926 square feet of floor space (135,280 square feet of living area). Still owned by one of Vanderbilt’s descendants, it stands today as one of the most prominent remaining examples of the Gilded Age. In 2007, it was ranked eighth in America’s Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.

Biltmore has four acres of floor space and a total of 252 rooms in the house including 33 bedrooms for family and guests, 43 bathrooms, 65 fireplaces, three kitchens and 19th-century novelties such as electric elevators, forced-air heating, centrally controlled clocks, fire alarms and an intercom system.

About Port Manatee

Port Manatee is one of Florida’s largest and fastest growing deepwater seaports. Located in the eastern Gulf of Mexico at the entrance to Tampa Bay, Port Manatee is also regarded as the closest U.S. deepwater seaport to the Panama Canal – providing shippers with speedy access to Pacific Rim markets.

The port and its partners move approximately 8 million tons of containerized, breakbulk, bulk and project cargo each year including fresh produce, forestry products, petroleum products, citrus juice products, fertilizer, steel, aluminum, automobiles, cement, aggregate and more.

Port Manatee is Fresh Del Monte Produce’s second largest U. S. port facility and is also the Southeast’s leading forestry products importer.

In this section we will provide samples of our work in various formats up to 4K that can be downloaded by potential future customers. This will allow our customers to see for themselves the quality of the source footage that DroneVU Studios creates.

Video hosting sites such as YouTube and Vimeo down grade the quality of the source videos that are uploaded to them in order to save on storage space and bandwidth. For customers that intend to use our video footage for purposes other than Internet media outlets, our new section will help them decide if aerial drone footage will meet their needs by viewing the footage in its native format.

Stay tuned as we update the new section with sample footage representing the various services we offer.

The Brandon Parkway Trail is a 3 mile trail located in Brandon, FL. The run has a total ascent of 3.16 feet and has a maximum elevation of 50.59 feet.

DroneVU Studios went on location to film the trail using both traditional photography and aerial photography. The trail offers many scenic views despite the fact that a major roadway is less than 30′ away.

We were able to capture some great nature shots of the local waterfowl as well as some of the trail’s amenities.  After wrapping up the terrestrial shoot, we took to the air to bring you our signature aerial photographs of the trail and surrounding area.

If you are looking for a quick 3 mile run in the middle of Brandon, the Brandon Parkway trail might be what you are looking for. Click the following link or the picture above to view the full terrestrial and aerial album.


As we continue to film many areas of interest around the Western coast of Florida, we are constantly reminded that our favorite real estate is typically the one that most people don’t traditional consider real estate; nature trails and nature.
