Why use drones for aerial photography when you can get amazing quality and close up detail from our helicopter? Vertical plans, wide angle panoramics and stunningly detailed close up images are all part of our standard package.

High Quality Aerial Photography From Every Angle    


The versatility of helicopters means that we can capture close up and also panoramic images which are hard to achieve by drones as they are restricted to the height that they can fly, especially within cities, and have limited capability in windy conditions. Drones are also restricted due to health and safety. 

We offer countrywide flights at a highly competitive price of only £295, apart from the London area were a special price applies. We also offer discounts for multiple sites and visits. Drone aerial photography typically costs between £400-£1000, and can often mean one or two pilots being onsite for at least half a day. 

We use Canon Eos 5DSr digital cameras with an amazing 50 megapixel resolution and the best quality lenses. This means we can take higher resolution images with no compromise on quality which means you get super sharp images every time.

Most drone operators are new to the industry. We have 27 years experience and a highly experienced team who are passionate about aerial photography. Our commercial pilots and photographers have thousands of flying hours and bring years of experience to each shoot.

All our images are processed and individually quality controlled in our photographic department. This ensures that all of our aerial photographs are of a consistent high quality. 

On each site we ensure total coverage by taking a wide variety of images capturing all angles including a vertical plan, panoramic images & stunningly detailed close-up aerial photographs. 

 

* our standard aerial photography is usually £389.
