My Story

Nick Samsel - 814 Aerial Founder 

I was born December 28, 1995 in this wonderful place we call Erie, Pennsylvania. I am a current college student at Gannon University; pursuing a dual degree in Supply Chain Management and Entrepreneurship on a cross country scholarship. 


From a young age, I had ambitious aspirations to stand out and leave a positive imprint on the world around me. I truly believe a lot of this inspiration has derived from the enviornment I've grown up in. Erie is my happy place and there is nothing more I want in life than to show people its true colors from a unique angle. 


I founded 814 Aerial Productions with the dream of providing people with a "fresh perspective" of the region.

I purchased my first high quality drone June of 2016 and I began sharing my work on my personal social media accounts, which resulted in a lot of positive reception and many people asking me to work on various projects with them using this technology. 

It is my mission to be the regions leading aerial imagery provider, helping businesses and people produce high quality, cost effective and captivating content for their desired use.
