Testimonials — See what our clients think about our services.

David Cleaveland’s photographs were just what we were looking for to capture the rivers, lakes, and mountains of Maine. The photos were not the typical shots easily accessible and recognizable as Maine places. They were the result of lengthy hikes and a keen eye for Maine in its natural state. The photographs provided a look at Maine from the stand point of an outdoors person who really gets away from it all.

For the past several years, Reed & Reed has utilized the services of Maine Imaging for our video and photography needs. It goes without saying that the photography is very professionally done. They’ve produced several high end videos and a multitude of photographs, which we proudly display throughout our offices. We highly recommend their services. Their work is very professional and always comes in on time and on budget.

Maine Imaging is the best aerial photography and videography company we have worked with in the history of EVER!!  Dave Cleaveland, Owner, does whatever it takes to achieve client elation.  He listens, he’s a true artist with the camera, and he is an absolute delight to work with.  We heartily recommend him to anyone who wants and needs a fine video or photography shoot. His company is versatile, responsive, and perfectionist.  Our video showcasing the Inn At Cuckolds Lighthouse has drawn great numbers of visitors and “likes" (actually, “loves”) to our offshore island Lighthouse Inn and our social media outlets. And it’s not the easiest place to shoot, as it sits on a small granite island in the middle of the ocean!

It was wonderful to work with Maine Imaging for aerial photos of our campus. Dave was both professional and flexible with us and the photos came out beautifully. I would work with this company again, if I had the opportunity, and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for outstanding aerial photos.
— Tracey Kelly, Berwick Academy
We assigned Dave to shoot aerial photos of one of our wind farms and found him to be tremendously accommodating. When the weather for our shoot turned out to be less than ideal, Dave offered to shoot the project again on a sunnier day at no additional cost. The pictures looked terrific.

Lobster Boat. Portland, Maine.

I have been delighted with the aerial photos I have purchased from Dave Cleaveland of Maine Imaging. Recently I hired him to shoot helicopter aerials of a prominent public building that had just finished construction, and he sent me a huge assortment of clear photos from every conceivable angle, including views showing plenty of neighborhood and city context. Those photos immediately found their way into our social media posts, press releases, and competition submissions. His prices are reasonable, he’s good about keeping in touch about dates and places, and the photos are terrific.

Maine Imaging really came through for us. We needed aerial shots of our campuses and were working against a tight deadline. Dave provided us with multiple pricing options to choose from, and the resulting images were beautiful - just what we hoped for.
— T. St. Pierre, University of Southern Maine
Dave made things easy for me from day 1, he explained to me how he does his work clearly and followed through timely, with nothing but more quality photos then we asked for! He is a designer of sorts in the way he craftily works out the path of approach with his pilots and takes the images the way he does.

Our first time working with David leads us to want to come back to him for many more projects in the future for our business and personal dealings that would require a terrific photographer/business owner!

"Maine Imaging's aerial photography adds high-end production value to UNE's film and video projects.  I would recommend Maine Imaging to video producers looking to take their productions to the next level."

Dave at Maine Imaging has been great to work with. It's helpful for us to be able to
easily show prospective students our campus and surrounding areas since location is a
factor for students selecting a college. Dave has been able to accommodate our needs,
and his work is top-notch!

The process was very simple. We explained what we needed, and Dave provided. The images were amazing! He captured Yarmouth Boat Yard (in Yarmouth) and Moose Landing Marina (in Naples) exceptionally well providing different angles and representing all aspects of each facility.
— Stacy Welner, Marketing Manager for Yarmouth Boat Yard and Moose Landing Marina.
The Maine aerial photos taken for me by Maine Imaging were perfect. He captured just what I was looking for. Not only were the photos fabulous, but Dave was very responsive and clear in all communications. I would highly recommend Maine Imaging!

Dave Cleaveland from Maine Imaging has a unique combination of technical know-how and experience, artistic eye and sensibility, and great professionalism and customer service attitude.  The aerial video and stills Dave took of both our campuses are of very high quality, and will be central to several marketing pieces we'll be developing over the next year.

Dave's willingness to help us develop this project and his follow-through after its completion were also appreciated, and we look forward to working with Maine Imaging in the future.

I can't get over how great these pictures came out. Unbelievable. Thanks for doing such a great job! I am so excited to use these photos on several marketing venues. We don't have too many projects that would be fit for aerial before-after pictures, but when we do, you are without a doubt the person we will turn to.

Maine Imaging was able to capture the beauty of Hadlock Field with stunning aerial photography.  Dave Cleaveland offered his expert advice as to what would look best.  He was able to accommodate our needs on short notice.  The turnaround time to receive the photos was exceptionally fast.  The Sea Dogs will absolutely use Maine Imaging again.  Dave is a true professional and wonderful to work with.

                                                                                                         -Chris Cameron, Portland Sea Dogs

David's quick response and flexibility allowed us to get our campus aerial photos during peak foliage season.  This is our first time working with Maine Imaging but it will not be our last.  We plan on continuing to work with David to help us put together our video and photo library.  David's work is very professional, on time and priced right!  I would highly recommend David and Maine Imaging for your organization.

I recommend Maine Imaging without qualification. Their service was A++ in every respect. The high-resolution,  aerial photos they produced of my seaside home were gorgeous, spectacular, far better than I thought possible. Dave Cleaveland is a professional and a pleasure
to work with.
