Let aerial imagery sell your experience for you

When it comes to marketing and promoting your destination or experience, nothing allows for a greater sense of perspective and grandeur than aerial filming and aerial photography.

For instance, a sweeping aerial shot of a beautiful sunny beach resort, or popular tourist hotspot, instantly captures the essence of the location and highlights its best features in a way that cannot be achieved by traditional ground-based videography or photography methods alone.

Impress and attract your competitor’s audience by utilising our wealth of knowledge and experience in aerial videography and aerial photography, that we have acquired and developed over many years.

Having worked since 2007 for major international broadcasters such as the BBC, ITV, CBS, Sky, Discovery Channel and more, our expert team will tailor the shoot and final product to your exact requirements.

We offer two platforms for aerial filming and photography: UAV drone or helicopter.

We were commissioned by The Bachelor – Ukraine, to film a number of key locations around Nice and Monaco, where the series was set. The footage would be used throughout the course of the show.

UAV drone aerial filming and photography

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones as they are most often called, are an affordable solution that are both fast and flexible when it comes to producing perfect aerial images.

Not only is filming with drone aircraft a cheaper alternative to other aerial imaging methods, it also opens up new means to create spectacular and previously unfilmable aerial shots, which result in engaging content that will truly wow your audience.

We would recommend choosing our camera drone platform if you need aerial shots which require:

  • Filming on a limited budget
  • Filming at under 400 feet
  • The ability to film close to your subject
  • A quick one day turnaround time

We use a DJI S900 hexacopter drone, with the Panasonic Lumix GH4 4K resolution camera, for aerial footage which achieves an amazing level of clarity and depth. We can also shoot in 1080p if you prefer, and at up to 200mbps recording quality, the footage at this lower resolution is even better for grading.

Should you want to view or direct the shots in real time, you can see the footage as it is recorded via our ground-based monitoring screens.

Helicopter aerial filming and photography

Although hiring a helicopter may seem expensive, there are some situations when nothing else will suffice, and they are the most affordable solution.

We would recommend choosing our helicopter platform if you want aerial shots which require:

  • A filming altitude of above 500 feet
  • Multiple locations shot quickly
  • Long flight times
  • Filming in controlled airspace
  • Filming in major European cities

For our helicopter filming projects, we use a Eurocopter twin engine AS355 with Cineflex HD camera system and a Sony HDC-F950 camera with a 42x Fujinon zoom lens, for outstanding HD aerial shots.

Our helicopter can be configured to carry up to three passengers, so there is the option for you to come onboard and direct the shots if you so desire.

If you require your aerial footage or images to be edited and post-produced, we offer a full broadcast-quality service.
