I’m a CAA certified drone pilot with a PfCO (permission for commercial operation - required by UK law). Cinema is my passion, RC helicopters were a hobby, and now drones let me fly and shoot! All services come with a risk assessment and mission plan, and of course, insurances. At the moment my primary aircraft is the DJI Mavic 2 Pro - it’s lightweight at less than 1kg, portable, and small, so it’s easy to get into tight spaces and has a lower risk profile than heavier aircraft. I am also able to rent larger aircraft where there’s a need, and can team up with a co-pilot and ground team for more complex shoots. I offer competitive rates - just get in touch and let's talk!
A E R I A L C I N E M A T O G R A P H Y As a filmmaker from a cinema background, I know that using a drone for aerial filming can get you some very dynamic results, without breaking the budget. Quicker to setup than porta-jib, you have a gyro-stabilised high dynamic range 4k camera that can move through the air at 72kph. This can be used to obtain some truly cinematic results! As the drone uses electric motors, it will also help keep your carbon footprint down. As a PfCO holder, I’m authorised by the CAA to fly over congested areas where safe to do so. Given my cinema background and knowledge of camera operation and shot design, I’m not only a proficient pilot but an experienced camera operator - well placed to get you that epic cinematic shot! I can fly up to 120m, and 500m away from the take off point, over congested areas, and at night. The Mavic 2 Pro has a professional 1” sensor and Hassleblad camera, recording 10bit, 100 Mbps - which with the right settings, can provide excellent footage which intercuts seamlessly with high end cinema cameras such as the Arri Alexa and Red Epic - footage I’ve shot on it has been shown in cinemas! Get in touch with me and let’s discuss how we can realise your vision!
A E R I A L P H O T O G R A P H Y Using a drone (UAV) for aerial photography work is cheaper than using a crane or helicopter, greener, safer, less intrusive and more practical in many situations. Whether you want photos of your wedding, pictures of your house, business, private property or home, or perhaps you need help capturing stills of properties as an estate agent, all of this is possible with a UAV - please get in touch!
