Kevin Barber

Hello! I'm Kevin Barber, a FAA Certified commercial drone pilot in Des Moines. While I specialize in Architectural and Real Estate Photography, I have done roofing inspections, aerial mapping & modeling, and various other professional drone jobs. I have been flying drones since 2014 and am active as an administrator in the Des Moines UAV Club, a Facebook group with over 1,300 members. I have also been a part of the FAA's FAASTeam as a Drone Pro, promoting safety in drone operation.
