What is Oblique Photography



Pictures taken from the side of the aircraft at an angle to the subject rather than from directly overhead. SkySite has specialized in oblique aerial photography for many years. We know what questions to ask you in order to be sure we capture images that show exactly what you want to see.

What is Vertical Photography



Vertical Photography is taken from directly above the subject, looking straight down. SkySite is one of the few aerial photography companies in North Carolina that provides “true vertical photography” in both 35mm digital and 9” x 9” film formats. Our camera is mounted to the floor of the aircraft and the images are captured through a camera port at a 90 degree angle to the ground.
Let SkySite help tell your story! We can add customized computer graphics such as boundary lines, street names, highway symbols, and retail logos to any image. We can produce prints for you or we can save your images to CD so that you can e-mail them, put them on a website, and make your own prints right in your office or at home.
