In male-dominated industry, one African-American woman carves out niche in Aerial Photography
LA County Drones is making a big splash with movies, events and agriculture

So the former corporate sales professional earned her FAA 107 Remote Pilot license and began building a business to offer aerial photography and cinematography to clients across Los Angeles.
With LA County Drones, Williams-Hunter and her business partner Jason L. Harris shoot movies, weddings and events. Alongside Harris as vice president and director of photography, Williams-Hunter runs the company's operations with support from a small staff of remote pilots and assistants. Harris also has a sales background in addition to being a veteran of the U.S. Air Force.
Williams-Hunter started flying drones two years ago at a tech event and was instantly hooked.
"A good friend suggested I get more involved with drones and something about that felt like the right thing," she said. "I started LA County drones and we have been busy from the very start."
Williams-Hunter said she finds it exciting but challenging to make her mark in a male-dominated industry.
"In a world that is traditionally dominated by men, we are seeing more and more women enter the AI/robotics space," she said. "That's exciting and inspiring."
As the company grows, she said the company is looking to add drone delivery while supporting environmental and agricultural ventures.
"We are determined to make a difference in the world we live in," she said, "be it through environmental or energy innovations. We will be in the mix of it all."
