About Us

Ever since Icarus first soared too close to the sun with his makeshift wings, we’ve been captivated with the idea of flight. Given the stunning aerial footage we see in television and film, it seems that our love affair with the skies has not diminished.

Bringing dramatic views to the public is at the core of what drives us. Getting to hang out of helicopters is just an added bonus.


Leo Tamargo

Leo J. Tamargo has worked in many feature films and television productions in a career spanning over two decades. An experienced Cinematographer and veteran of the movie industry, he founded Aerial Camera Works after discovering he preferred shooting airborne with a Cineflex® ELITE controller in hand, more than anything else he had previously done. Since his first aerial assignment, he has not looked back (or up, just down) ever since.
