Our Core Team

The Kaze Aerial Production team combines experience and skills in the areas that best lead to media success.

Dr. John G. Duesler, Jr., President: Dr. Duesler, an FAA-licensed rUAV pilot, has combined his proven analytic, communication, and leadership skills since 1993 to launch and conduct successful media projects with numerous clients as wide-ranging as K Street think tanks to CBS Sports to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Lewis Estes, Director of Photography: An FAA-licensed rUAV pilot with 3 Emmys to his credit, as well as numerous other cinematography awards for industrial video, Lewis’s eye in the sky has helped frame some of the most dramatic sights our clients have ever seen.

Richard Dobson, Pilot in Charge: Richard is not only an FAA-licensed rUAV pilot, but a glider pilot, as well.  He deploys the same meticulousness that he used to chase submarines in the Navy and applies it to the skies as he guides our UAV video platforms in search of the perfect target…great video angles and approaches.


We are good at…

seamlessly folding aerial video into the treatment, so that it is evokes natural emotions by adding to the story, rather than becoming the story.
