I’m a travel photographer, adventurous filmmaker, and licensed drone pilot currently based in the Western United States y también hablo Español !


I am passionate about creating dynamic imagery that illustrates the perpetual beauty in humans and nature. I aim to inspire others by sharing my stories and visions, skillfully piloting my drone to capture unique views of extraordinary landscapes, sunsets, and architecture.


My hope is to motivate and inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and explore the world beyond their immediate surroundings; to travel, create, connect with the Earth and its eclectic cultures/peoples, to empathize with every living being, and follow the visions that bring you joy.


Hola, my name is Javier Ortiz.

From road-tripping and climbing mountains across North America’s national parks and natural wonders to backpacking over a dozen countries in Europe and Costa Rica, I live to conquer doubt and inspire the soul to triumph over anxiety - bliss is just on the other side of fear.


In my commercial work, I utilize my cinematic techniques to create destination-based content specializing in travel photography and videography for real estate, hotels, businesses, brands, public figures, and more along with my impressive drone work.


My 5+ years of experience in various professional industries has taught me how to bring higher value to any project’s production, completion, and delivery with dynamic creativity. I build on my those experiences with every new project by bringing a consistently creative direction when executing a shared, collaborative vision. 


Bringing a project to life requires a focused attention to detail and working as a team to deliver the client’s needs, desired results, and most importantly, naturally having fun while doing it.


When you partner with me you’re gaining a genuine connection and meaningful relationship with a creative visionary.


My desire is to help you bring your vision to life.


By partnering together we can take your vision in a fresh, creative direction while authentically telling your unique story.
