The goal for CT Drone Source is to provide a reliable professional photography and videography service to meet the primary goals of most real estate agents and businesses today: 

  • Affordability: Our pricing is simple, competitive, and customizable to suit the needs of agents, Air BnB & VRBO Entrepreneurs, as well as small or large businesses that want to look incredible. 

  • High Quality: We employ top-notch technologies like Sony cameras, DJI Mavic 2 and 3 Pro drones, Matterport, Adobe Photoshop, and Lightroom to ensure exceptional media quality.

  • Collaboration: We're open to working closely with agents and brokers to make professional media easily accessible and achievable for all listings.


We offer flexible scheduling, including weekends, afternoons, and evenings, with weekday sessions available with advanced notice.

  • Contact us through chat, phone (call or text), or email at to start discussing your project. No pushy sales pitches—we're here to answer your questions and talk about your needs.

  • When you're ready to move forward, we'll coordinate property details and services, finding the best date and time for your session. We're patient and happy to address any concerns you have.

  • After the photo session, we'll process your media promptly. Choose to have images directly uploaded to your SmartMLS listing, delivered via GoogleDocs Folder, or both. You'll receive watermarked copies for review and approval, with the option to request edits or changes.

  • Payment is easy. Pay your invoice securely online via card or by cash, Venmo, or  check made out to "John McDonald" (though check may delay final media delivery). We're committed to making any reasonable edits you may need.


If you aren't happy at all with our images, you do not have to buy them (sorry, you also don't get to use them), we only ask that you provide detail on what you did not like. This allows you to work with us without risk, and serves as an indication of how confident we are that you will love us!
