I’ve been busy this summer working on a website and marketing materials for the new Great Valley Wine Trail. It is scheduled to go live September 1, 2015. It has been so much fun getting to visit the wineries and meet the winery owners on the trail.
Well, Tim Smythe, a resident in Sharps Chapel, TN, is starting a new business offering drone videos and still images and he offered to do one of the wineries on the wine trail! We chose to have him film Spout Spring Estates Winery and Vineyard in Blaine, TN — a short 30 miles from Sharps Chapel.
It was such a learning experience to watch Tim operate his equipment. His drone can fly straight up 400 feet (that’s as high as it can legally fly and the drone is programmed to not exceed that height), and Tim can control it from his hand-held device that is attached to his smart phone where he can view the images. Tim has a commercial pilots license but is in the process of taking additional training to get certified to fly drones for commercial purposes.
I’ll post the video on the Great Valley Wine Trail’s Facebook page when it is done. But you can enjoy these photos now.
There is a lot of talent in Sharps Chapel. Tim Smythe is targeting real estate agents selling high-end homes on the internet. Check out his website Sky Aerial Productions.
Life is an Adventure!
