We originally did a video in 2014 “Night on Tampa Riverwalk”, which propelled us into aerial photography.  Shots we used on the national Cable TV show “Nightwatch” when did their show in Tampa in late 2016 and airing earlier this year.  After shooting across the country we felt it was time to update this video with our newer equipment, thus the video “Tampa at Dusk”.

Aerial Photographers TampaTampa at Dusk is an aerial look at Downtown Tampa featuring the Riverfront areas from Sunset to 30 minutes after sunset.  The growing Tampa Riverwalk area is really starting to light up. It extends 2.6 miles from the newly re-developed Tampa Heights area just north of I-275 to around the Amalie Arena. In the next 10 years the downtown area will continue to change with the Water Street Re-development that will absolutely mondernize and transform 50 acres of Channelside. The construction begun in 2017 and the first phase will be open in 2020.

For dinner cruises along this beautiful waterfront area check out Yacht Starship that has a fleet of 3 ships in Tampa, 1 ship in Clearwater Beach . The new Pirate Water Taxi, is a great way to move around the Riverfront Area.

If visiting Tampa and looking for lodging check out the 4 popular hotels we feature in this video. The Sheraton Riverwalk  & the Marriott Waterside  are right on the Riverwalk. The Westin Harbour Island next to the Popular Jackson’s Bistro with outdoor seating right on the water. The Embassy Suites Convention Center, closest to Amalie Arena, with a skywalk to the Convention Center.

Tampa was originally founded at Fot Brook in 1824, 3 years after the United States purchased Florida from Spain. It was incorporated in 1855 as Tampa. It was the construction of the Railroad that developing Cigar & Phosphate industries and its location of sitting on the Bay that allowed the Tampa Bay Area to grow and is now the 2nd largest metro area in Florida.

All the footage in this video was shot from sunset to within 30 minites after sunset. We shot mostly over water and parking areas and took pre-cautions not to fly over people. We also used anti-colision lights of 1500 lumens on the drone.
