Mark Baxter has been an amateur photographer for over 10 years. While he enjoys photographing scenic locations and capturing “out-of-the-box” shots, his other interests in technology, aviation, and model aircraft led him to aerial photography. Utilizing drones, he is able to capture perspectives rarely seen by land-based photographers. In 2016, he founded SkySight VIP, a multi-state aerial photography and videography business based in Frederick, Maryland, which contracts work for residential & commercial real estate clients, performs missions for inspection, insurance, and construction companies, and has shot several special events around Maryland. He has a military and law enforcement background and has worked to create training programs for public safety agencies. He also holds FAA certification as a Part 107 Remote Pilot.
When he is not working on a project, he enjoys hiking the National Parks around the U.S. with his wife, and they especially enjoy Zion National Park.
