I was born and raised in the beautiful coastal city of Santa Cruz, California. My interest and passion for photography and cinematography began at an early age and was largely influenced by skateboarding and action sports. I've traveled extensively throughout California capturing stunning landscapes and wildlife in their natural settings. In college I began producing short films, documentaries, and time-lapse photography. In 2013, I added a drone to my photographic equipment, which has opened new and unique perspectives from the air. I'm a licensed FAA Part 107 Certified Remote Pilot-In-Command for the commercial drone industry.

With 11 years experience piloting drones Levy Media Works offers commercial drone services and ground-level 4K and Full HD video production, editing, time-lapse, 2D/3D mapping, and photography for a wide range of applications and clients, including NBC News, Mercedes-Benz, Blare Media, Santa Cruz Vibes Magazine, Moon Valley Nurseries, City of Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz Waves, Tom Ralston Concrete, Ranchito Paraiso, Blu Homes, Big Kahuna Productions, Sean O'Kane, American Hat Makers, Stormy Strong, Tom Watson Ceramics, among others.

In 2017, Levy Media Works was hired by the City of Santa Cruz to map a portion of the San Lorenzo River to asses storm related effects. An article about the project was published in the Santa Cruz Sentinel in April 2017 and a video segment was shown on KION 5/46 News Channel.

David Levy has been flying drones since 2013 and has 10+ years experience in video production and editing. David successfully completed Dart Drones 3-part certification courses in 2015: Drone Industry 101, Basic Training, & Advanced Mission Courses. In 2018, David successfully completed Remote Pilot 101 Certificate of Completion: Complete Course + Recurrent Course. In 2023, David successfully completed the Certificate of Achievement Part 107 Small UAS Recurrent ALC-677, issued by the FAA.
