About - Margot Cheel

Margot Cheel is an award winning photographer, pilot, and arts educator. She invites you to see the world from a unique perspective.


“What color, mood or message would you like surrounding you? Art can do it …soothe, inspire, inform or question. It can open you to new vistas and understanding. That happened for me when I took my first introductory fight and saw the earth below. The view was exhilarating and I was hooked. Soon after, earning my pilot’s license, I brought my passion for flying to my love of the arts. What better way to showcase what’s below than from a view above. It can reveal beauty or fragility; change or connection.”

From Margot’s Newsletter:

“How would you like to remember the area you love? There can be all kinds of unique aerial views you didn’t know existed: relationships & connections or disconnects – a true map, a historical recording. Perhaps you are drawn to the abstract qualities in the landscape– the colors and patterns in Nature’s designs revealed from above. You can choose from our stock collection or place an order for your special place. Your assignment can be joined with others for cost savings on our next flight.“
