COMBINING CREATIVITY, SAFETY, AND RELIABILITY

My goal is to deliver a knock-it-out-of-the-park aerial package that will have you jumping up and down after viewing the footage. A drone can do so much more than fly straight forward at 75 feet high…

I carry a Part 107 license from the FAA — as well as extensive insurance — and have flown off mountains, in -20-degree weather, from moving boats, snowmobiles, trucks, and more. My background in the outdoors means I can get a large drone into places most other companies can’t. I can also legally fly at night.

I have six years’ experience flying drones and have collaborated with many talented teams and clients. I primarily work with the DJI Inspire 2 platform, flying the Zenmuse X7 camera to shoot 6K footage in RAW with multiple lenses, enough batteries for all-day flights, and backups galore.

Let's create the aerial shots you've always imagined.


  • FAA Part 107-certified for commercial drone flight

  • Experienced flying at -20F, from high-altitude, off moving boats, snowmobiles, trucks, and more

  • Extensive liability insurance (up to $10 million on request)

  • DJI Inspire 2 drone plus Zenmuse X7 camera records RAW footage up to 6K resolution, offers multiple lens options, and more

  • 6 years’ experience with aerial platforms

  • Able to fly in the majority of FAA-controlled airspace

  • Adaptable, experienced filming in varied locations, physical terrain, elevations, countries and cultures

I was surprised to find tears welling up in my eyes as we screened our video for the first time. Through careful planning and a thoughtful approach, he somehow managed to capture the soul of the place. We were simply blown away.

Kjell is a one-of-a-kind filmmaker. I came to him with a very ambitious project, both technically and conceptually, and he knocked it out of the park. His eye for capturing motion is second to none. His edits and transitions are flawless. And his storytelling through motion picture is something you cannot teach. But his work speaks for itself. Within 48 hours we had 24,000 views all from organic traffic to our video. I can’t recommend Kjell enough.

Kjell was incredible to work with on our Western Give Day videos — creative, responsive, and savvy.
