Derrick Supan, President
Derrick has three loves, Jaclyn, Tori and creating visual images. Derrick was formerly in design for manufacturing companies. He is now realizing a passion that fulfills his creative eye, uses his mechanical intuition, and combines this as a drone photographer and videographer. Derrick has used numerous software packages to design mechanical equipment and has transferred that sense of design, space and software into the world of aerial photography, videography, and editing.
Derrick is a creative eye behind a camera, mechanically inclined and facile with joysticks.
