Meet Jason Hubert, the guy who has been shooting much of the awesome drone videos of St. John you’ve been seeing.
If you’re a longtime OSJ reader, you actually
met Jason about six years ago, when he moved to St. John from Baltimore for a long break before law school.
Since then, Jason returned to DC to get his law degree and is now back on St. John preparing to take the Virgin Islands Bar this summer.
He has also mastered the art of the drone, and is shooting charter boats, villas, weddings and anything else you can think of.
Click here if you have a project for him.
Shooting drone video
is not easy. “I waited until I had about 100 hours of flight time before I took it over the water,” Jason says, “and I still get nervous every time.”
Check out the amazing sample of Jason’s St. John drone videos, below…
