Low level Aerial Photography

Andy has experience in high level aerial photography from Aircraft and helicopters, but more recently has started specialising in low level aerial photography using a trailer mounted mast with remote camera control, capable of heights up to 100 feet, and is also CAA certified for commercial operation for flying a UAV Drone with both video and still camera options which can provide photography and video footage from up to 400 feet.

Low Level Aerial Photography gives a much more realistic and interesting angle to lansdcapes, than the flat map type images that are taken from aircraft. It is excellent for building surveys, civil engineering projects, demolition, building work, estate agency shots, photography of large groups, themal imaging, time lapse, and 360 degree Landscape Panoramas.
