The Photographer, Michelle Warren, has been snapping aerial photos with her father since she was young. With years of looking through the lens and a college emphasis in visual arts, Michelle began compiling her aerial portfolio.

And for all Rock Creek Aviation sight-seeing rides, tours, helicopter rentals, and more, Michelle is your Safety Officer to make sure all flies smoothly!


Some of Michelle & Michael's favorite projects include bluff helicopter rides for HGTV, aerial filming for Tim McGraw's "Truck Yeah" video, and maneuvering through downtown buildings following athletes to capture aerial footage for the IRONMAN Chattanooga, the ChattaJack 31 SUP race, the UTC Mocs Football Team, and the US Pro Cycling National Championships in Chattanooga.
