Utah man keeps love for flying alive through drone camera

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Utah) – One Utah man is keeping his fascination for flying alive. What he can’t do in the Army anymore, he’s now accomplishing through a drone camera company.

The next time you see a drone camera flying overhead, Matthew Clinton Baker and his wife might be manning the controls. Baker owns Stunning Heights LLP. It’s a commercial drone photography company that provides amazing images and is even approved by the FAA.

“The FAA requires that we actually have to cooperate with the towered airport itself and get a letter of approval if we want to operate within 5 statute miles of that airport,” said Matthew Clinton Baker, Stunning Heights LLP.

The business is taking off, but for Baker it’s a labor of love. Baker used to be a crew chief in the Army for medical evacuations. For him it’s a way to stay in the air.

“When I came off of active duty and we came back to Utah, I was heartbroken to be away from aviation,” said Baker.

Operating a drone business doesn’t come without difficulty, like getting the right shot or complying with FAA rules, but Baker loves the challenge.

“We provide the footage and the photographs that are difficult or impossible to get without new technology,” he said.
