Russ Gibbs is a former mechanical engineering veteran of 28 years at Seagate Technology. In 2016 he left the corporate world to pursue his dream of becoming an entrepreneur by forming “Rare Air Drone Services”. His strong skills and passion for photography, videography, and video production, coupled with his interest in “all things mechanical” has led him to becoming a Drone Service entrepreneur. Since January, 2017, Rare Air has provided drone services to over 6 different industries, learning much along the way and meeting great people in the process. We believe in being an ambassador to this new and exciting drone industry and we have reached out to nearby communities to offer a variety of drone classes! We have recently expanded our business model to include Personal Photography and Videography Services through the brand name, “Cherished Moment Films” which is now a division of Rare Air Drone Services. We are offering Portrait, Professional Head shot, High School Senior, Prom, Engagement, and Event photography. Our goal is to continue building the company with an emphasis on providing the highest quality and value to the client. Russ is the proud father of 3 fine young men and has an incredibly supportive wife, Dawn!
