Aerial Photographer Wales - Professional CAA Qualified Pilots

Stunning Aerial Photography and Video

We use the very latest unmanned aerial vehicles or ‘Drones’ to capture incredible aerial images and videos. Drones can go places that just wouldn’t be accessible by any other means. Without the prohibitive cost of hiring a helicopter and pilot.

Due to their size they can fly closer to buildings, quickly and quietly at a fraction of the cost of more traditional methods. The applications are endless and we are currently being booked for site surveys, time lapse building development, sporting events, roof surveys and weddings.

If you would like to work with us on a project, feel free to Contact Us now. Or call 07590 551042. We will explain how we work and if needed, help you through the booking process.

Drone Technology and the future of Unmanned Aerial Photography

I was sent this video the other day. Raffaello D’Andrea is a professor at the TEDGlobal Robot Lab (yes that is as cool as it sounds) and in this video he gives a short talk on the future of drone technology. You really have to see it to believe it. It is incredible. They talk about the algorithms are used to control the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. I’ve had 15 years experience in as a programmer and I can’t even begin to imagine the code that these guys have written in order to do some of the things you see in the video. It really does show where the technology is headed and the future of aerial photography systems.... read more

UK Aerial Photography Law and CAA rules for drone use

Although the Rise of the Drones might sound like the next Terminator movie, the reality is in the next few years our skies will be filled with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or UAVs. They can be bought in high street electrical retailers from as little as £40. For a £1000 you can get a Quadcopter that can carry a 4K Ultra High Definition camera and has built in GPS. While it is possible to pop into your nearest Maplins and be flying the same day these drones are NOT toys. The users do need to be aware of certain rules (and laws) set out by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). There are basically two sets of rules and I’ll cover the ones that apply to recreational drone use in this blog post. The other set of rules govern the use of UAS (Unmanned Aerial Surveillance) equipment for commercial purposes. Rules for flying drones for recreational use You are responsible for each flight. This might seem obvious but with great power, comes great responsibility. Even with a governing set of laws and guidelines, ultimately each flight has to be planned, controlled and executed by the pilot. This means using your knowledge of the CAA rules combined with good old common sense to ensure your drone flies safely, each and every time you get it out of the box. Every flight will be different because of the weather, location and the ever unpredictable general public. You need to be aware at all times of any variable that could affect your take off, flight and landing. Keep your drone in clear sight. Some drones come... read more
