Aerial and Ground Based Photography

Using the latest drone technology we can fly above your buildings, events or photo target, to capture 4k video and high resolution still imagery.  We have a small drone to undertake small roof inspections and also a larger drone for higher level work

We also use a hand held gimbal and Canon EOS camera for professional level ground based videography

We will discuss your requirements in detail and agree on a flight plan that will provide the imagery that you need.  All imagery is provided digitally either on hard media or via web links

Our pilots are all fully qualified by the CAA to fly commercially and all flights are fully insured up to £1m. Higher insurance can be provided if needed at additional cost.

Buildings, the Built Environment and Inland Waterways are our speciality, but wherever we can fly, we can shoot.

We can undertake detailed property assessments whatever your requirement is:

  • Structural Surveys of Domestic Properties

  • Due Diligence Inspections

  • Roof Inspections

  • Fire Damage

  • Retaining Wall Inspections

We will provide fully detailed written reports outlining our observations, and our recommendations and conclusions.

We are covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance of £500k

The drone gives us that extra capability to see the areas that others cant such as roofs, chimneys, gutters, high level construction, balconies, mast structures etc

The list of opportunities is endless.
