Default Roofer or handyman

I found a few loose shingles. Please see the video (sorry for shaking). Should I call a roofer or try to find an insured handyman? What would be the approximate cost? I have unused extra shingles.

Either or, it's not so much their ability, as the location.

Looks like a 1/2 hour fix why not do it yourself.
A flat bar and and hammer is all that's needed.

I totally would but it's really high and the roof is really steep.

Propper ladder and safety equipment required. Best call for help. DIY something else.

If it's the second layer of roofing, you may not get a visible leak for a while, but the flashing around your vent pipes may also need repair.

I'm putting in sleeve anchors in the masonry to stabilize a ladder with cables/ropes, and strapping myself to the ladder with a body harness, for my gutter cleaning tasks.
But my roof is only about a 3 in 12 slope. I can't imagine working on a 12:12 slope.
