For anyone that has known me for more than a couple minutes, you wouldn't think that I would be someone to want to get into the field of Aerial Drone Photography. But in the past few years of my life, the direction that I have taken with my efforts have changed so much that I can't even begin to describe them without boring you to death. All you need to know is, it only takes so much for a person to be fed up with how their life is going, and all it takes is a little push to get them up on their feet to change it.
I'm sitting right now writing this in one of my favorite places in Tulsa, Chimera coffee house. Although that really isn't pertinent information, I just wanted you to know that. But anyway. I have changed gears a lot in my life, and I've had so many plans for my future; I wanted to be a doctor, to teach Spanish, to be a manager of a computer electronics store, to be a computer programmer, etc. But the one thing above all that I've wanted to be is successful. I have always been driven by wanting to be able to afford to gaze off into the distance while filling up my gas tank, to be able to swipe my card at a shop or restaurant and not get nervous when it takes more than a second to go through, or even to be able to afford non-generic brand maple syrup. You know, the simple stuff.
Which brings me to why I am going into the business of ADP. Some years ago I was given a GoPro for my birthday, and I loved it. I got all the accessories, I took it with me on trips, put it through the gauntlet. But I began to realize that my life wasn't quite as extreme as I thought it was. So over time the little camera got used less and less. Until I met my partner in crime, Seth. Together we had this idea. To take people's view of their worlds to new heights. To give people something that previously wasn't possible. To have a camera on a little flying machine and pilot it through the air like we're Han Solo and Chewie (I'm totally Han.).
So Your Fly Guys was born. Being roommates made it a lot easier for us to collaborate and share ideas, and motivate each other to get work done. We put our heads together and something awesome happened, so now here we are. Two guys with pretty much nothing to lose but our time, out to give people something they don't see every day, and to have fun while doing it.
I realize that for something that's written in a coffee shop this blog post is a little long, but I'm excited about this new adventure we're embarking on, and I hope that you guys get excited about it too, because there's really nowhere to go but up.
