company at a glance

L-5 Imaging was formed with the goal of providing quality, affordable drone operations, consulting, training, and imaging services to a varied clientele ranging from business to first responders. We can cover everything from aerial thermal imaging, videography, and industrial inspections to handheld videography and ground-based night vision.

L-5 also provides volunteer and for-fee search and rescue services, with a specialization in night operations and armed ingress for ops with a high risk factor. Some search activities involve asset recovery or search-and-mark; the latter often occurs in the process of downed aircraft, for example.

Training services offered by the company are extensive; our wilderness experience and love for the outdoors allows the company to offer numerous guided expeditions in the north Texas area. We can also arrange customized training and guided expeditions in other areas of the country. You may also enjoy the L-5 Imaging YouTube channel that covers land-nav, night-vision gear, and Search and Rescue operations.

We are a source of unique (B-roll) footage, HDR Photography, and editing/color grading services for one-person and small video production shops. If you are a small business, then L-5 Imaging could be a valuable business partner!
