Hello Fellow Pilots!

My name is Sam Krochman and I am the CEO and founder of 191Above Aerial Photography. I started my company back in late 2013, and I have been flying ever since! I am also proud to say that I was the first recipient of the Drone Pilot Ground School scholarship, and I received my training through UAVCoach. Alan and Isabella at UAVCoach have been tremendous helps and I attribute a lot of my success and I am very grateful to them for giving me a shot in the industry.

I got into the drone industry accidentally and I never knew how much I would love it. I originally purchased a Phantom 2 Vision+ for a school project, and then I realized that I could really make a difference in the real estate industry by providing aerial photography services. If you are interested in a little bit more detail of how I started, visit

Since the start of my company I have done all sorts of jobs of all sizes. I have provided services for multi-million dollar homes, and projects that extend hundreds of miles up and down the west coast, see for examples!

I am so happy that I am a part of this amazing community and I look forward to continuing discussions throughout this forum! If you have any questions for me or want to chat, please feel free to shoot me an email or reply to this post. My email is, you can also connect with me through my website,

Happy Flying!

Sam Krochman

Hi @Sam Krochman,

It is great to hear about the success you have had with your business! We are glad that you have continued to be a part of the UAV Coach community. What drone do you fly the most? Is there ever a specific drone platform that your clients ask for?

Hi Chase!

I am currently rocking the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and I love it! Clients don't typically know the difference between different platforms, but they like the quality that it produces and they trust my judgment on which platform will deliver the best results.
