The Story of Carolina Premier Drone

Black - Transparent.png


I am Brian DiYorio. Owner of Carolina Premier Drone.

Carolina Premier Drone began its journey in August of 2020. I am a FAA licensed Part 107 Pilot. I am also licensed by the NC DOT as a Drone Pilot. I also carry Drone Insurance for the business. I am a first responder by trade and have always loved good photography. 

I picked up a love for photography from my late father. I have from a young age taken many photographs for personal use. 

I acquired a drone and began toying around with the drone and some friends said, Hey those are some good photos. Through my full time work as a first responder, I went through a Drone Operator Course that was hosted by a community college. I then studied for weeks to take my FAA Part 107 Drone Pilot License. I remember walking out of taking the test and the proctor asked me what I used to study. I then told her what methods I used and was becoming disappointed thinking "man did I fail this thing? I have been studying for weeks." She then told me that she has never seen a perfect score before and that I scored a 100% (Proof can be provided). I was extremely happy and then began honing my pilot skills with the drone. 

I began shooting some real estate for a friend of mine and decided to turn this into a part time gig. My realtor friend loved the photos and I began to devote my photography time to shooting real estate. My goal is to produce quality photos at affordable prices for the customer.  

I strive to be an excellent charlotte based real estate photographer.
