Wendy Whittemore

CEO/Flight Commander

Wendy earned her wings at Aerial Innovations of GA, Inc. at the turn of the century. Since then, she hasn’t been able to keep her feet on the ground! Her love of photography and flying has led Aerial Innovations to be a leading Aerial Photography company in the Southeast.

Stephen Schween

Drone Pilot/Business Development

Stephen is a Louisiana native, and grew up tinkering with all things mechanical. His passion for drones and technology started with a remote control car racing hobby. He built RC cars from scratch and has been racing them for many years. Stephen is a Part 107 Remote Pilot and will be putting his flight skills on display for the Fly Team. Look for him out and about doing Business Development as well!

Lynse Watkins

Director of Operations

It takes a lot to keep us flying – great weather, awesome clients, amazing photographers, and superior ground control. “Ground Control to Major Tom…” We know you were singing it in your head. Lynse keeps us in line by overseeing daily operations and managing our spending. “No, you cannot buy a new plane.” Sheesh, she’s tough.

Christa Kaye, Marketing & Sales Support - Aerial Innovations Southeast - Nashville

Christa Kaye

Marketing & Sales Support

As a graduate of Belmont University, Christa is no stranger to Tennessee. Christa and her husband have spent many years living across the US, but recently set their landing gear back down in Nashville to make it home. As long-term Crossfit coach, we know she will keep all your photography needs in shape.

Rick Smith

Chief Photographer

Rick comes to us with an MFA from Columbia College in Chicago, where he was also an instructor. But, the South came calling, so this Native Nashvillian moved back. He has taken to the sky like a duck takes to water, which has made his fellow SouthLight Salon Photographers very jealous. Also a multi-disciplinary artist, Rick can often be found painting and working on his next gallery show in his spare time.

Alyssa Jiosa Cox

Production Coordinator

When she’s not processing your images, routing our photo flights across the southeast, or caring for her plant collection in the office; Alyssa is off with her camera! A Nashville native, she graduated Nashville State Community College in 2016 with a degree in Visual Communications and has been shooting professionally since. Her experience ranges from travel and journalism to weddings and portraiture.

Johnny Gerhart

Drone Pilot/Camera Operator

When he’s not out shooting videos in gorgeous and remote locations, Johnny is in the skies of Kentucky, Tennessee, and wherever else we can send him. He also runs the drone like a champ, switching from cinematographer to operator with a twirl of his killer ‘stache. Shoot on, Johnny, shoot on.

Ron Coons

Photo/Videographer

Lights, camera, action! Ron is our ground cinematographer, editor,  photographer & neighbor. He’s got a great walk to work! With over 27 years in the film industry, he got his start in Los Angeles as a fully accredited First Camera Assistant and member of the International Cinematographer’s Guild. Ron is always ready with a helpful hand or tip, and knows his stuff.

Bonnie Whittemore

Treasurer

Watch this one, she’s out for money! Bonnie helps keep the business rolling by taking care of deposits, paying bills, creating invoices….and most importantly, handling the payroll…who could forget that?? She’s not only a family member, but an integral part of the team as well. Bonnie frequently keeps us entertained with stories about the neighborhood back in the day, her dance escapades, and her grandson Isaiah.
