D Ramey Logan is a professional TV, Documentary, & Film producer as well as a International Architectural & Aerial Photographer who hold's a Single and Multi Engine certification as a private aircraft Pilot and FAA part 107 Commercially Certified Unmanned Aerial System Pilot. I am also considered to be an avid Yachtsman who also enjoys raising Orchids (Phalaenopsis Cattleya Ludisia & Zygopetalum) as well as Bonsai.

Much of my aerial work has been from a Cessna 172 & Cessna 172 RG as well as a Cessna 182. I am currently developing high altitude photographic technique's working in the Pilatus PC-12. Low altitude UAS flights are now flown using the Phantom 3 Professional, the DJI Inspire 1 X3, and my production aerial platform is a FAA registered Inspire 1 X5 professional micro 4/3rds system.

I have contributed over 1400 photos to this project since 2008 with over 200 of them being exclusive Aerial photographs. I rarely photograph people, preferring aerial and geographic locations you can find my photos published all over the globe.

I am NOT a lawyer and I have never played one on TV, but I did play the role of Swat Team Commando in the movie Cobra (1986 film) with Sylvester Stallone. I have also studied law, under the California Chambers Study Program, but now prefer to let my camera's do the talking....

My photo of the "Statute of Liberty" made an appearance as the featured photo on July 4, 2016 upon the Home page of English Wikipedia
