"Any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to magic." – Arthur C. Clarke (Author)





                                                Hi! I’m Chris L. Smith, a one-time pilot and lifetime photographer.  I’ve created

                                                commercial photographs & supplied stock agencies with imagery for worldwide

                                                distribution for over 25 years. I have sold images to many newspapers, magazines,

                                                airports, and other industries worldwide.


                                                One of my specialities is creating large photographs for use in industry, educational

                                                facilities, airports and more. The sizes vary but are mostly 15-20ft wide. My latest

                                                has been for the Polytechnique Montreal and Boeing Subco.



My other speciality is UAV drone photography and videography. I operate the

DJI Inspire 1 drone which is perfect for all professional applications.

With a 12megapixel Stills camera and a movie quality 4k Video Camera,

this machine is perfect for a variety of projects.


I am a FAA Commercial UAV Licensed and a fixed-wing licensed Pilot.

csfotoimages is fully licensed and insured to operate in any commercial



I Live happily in Florida with my wife who is also a photographer. She

specializes in studio work for commercial and advertising. We do NOT

"do" Weddings or People Portraits.
