Hi, I’m Rich Charpentier
I've been a small business owner for over a decade, focused on imaging technologies and online presence. Over the course of building my own web design & imaging company I've learned a lot about operating my own small business.
As my business has grown we've been transitioning from a strictly web development perspective to a "drone operations" business. At this point the business is about 50% online communications and 50% Drone work. It's been an interesting transition.
The courses you'll find here are a combination of practical drone flight applications, drone modeling, imaging, video, and more. We'll also talk a good deal about how to deliver your final products to clients, and that's where my online web development skills may have value to you as well.
