Lamar H. Ellis, III, MAI, SRA, FAA Certified Remote Pilot of Small UAS is from Atlanta, Georgia. He currently serves on the 2018 Atlanta Chapter’s education committee and is an approved instructor with the Appraisal Institute. He also consults with companies all over the United States on applications and business development with drones, is a published author and assists in business development for several Atlanta based drone companies.

Using his 30 years of Real Estate valuation experience, Lamar was an early adopter of Drone Technology for real estate. He developed a seminar for the Appraisal Institute entitled “Drone Technology and Its Impact on the Appraisal Industry” with assistance from Flyworx, LLC a full-service unmanned aerial company that provides consulting services in marketing, promotion, presentations, interviewing and assisting in drone operations. Lamar went to work for FlyWorx, LLC in the Winter of 2016 through Spring 2016 to gain hands on experience in drone operations, business development and sales.

From the first day Lamar became aware of drones he realized there impact on valuation and a way for appraisers to use it in their practices.  Because he was at the leading edge of this new technology he also became involved with a variety of other industries that would be majorly influenced. He has presented seminars in 26 states to various chapters of the Appraisal Institute, Georgia Bar Association, divisions of the EPA, East Coast Insurance Brokers, the Georgia Erosion and Agricultural Expo, International Drone Day 2016, Turner Broadcasting Systems, International Right-of-Way Association, Conservation groups, American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers, American Society of Appraisers and various other real estate entities. Lamar also donates his time to helping elementary and middle school children realize the benefits of a STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) through Drone Technology.

There are an abundance of videos and photographs imbedded into the presentation to assist in the learning process and keep attention. By the end of the seminar, you will understand the necessary steps to be able to utilize aerial technology in your business practice. Whether you decide to fly or intend to hire someone to fly for you, you will leave the seminar with the knowledge to fly safely and within the context of the rules. Attendees of the seminars often state that they had no idea how big the drone industry is and how significant their impact will be. The seminars are well received and well attended.
