Our Drones

Drone technology is growing at a rapid rate, and there are now many different types of drones available. The most common type used in the commercial sector is the quadcopter or “quad” as they are usually known. These are four-propeller craft with two pairs of rotors on either side of the body, and can be controlled by the pilot using a remote control device or via a smartphone app.

The main drone we use is a DJI Phantom 4 Advanced, which is an advanced quadcopter drone equipped with a 1-inch 20MP camera capable of shooting incredibly smooth, stable video at both full HD 1080p video footage and 4K at 60fps, meaning you’ll receive incredibly high quality drone footage and photos each and every time.

Our latest drone is the iFlight Defender 25, which is what’s known as an FPV Drone – FPV stands for ‘First Person View’, as it comes with a VR-like headset worn by the pilot, giving us a first person view of the drone’s flight. This is how we deliver stunning aerial videos where the camera flies in and out of buildings, through windows and doorways!

I found the quality of Oliver's work to be extremely good. He has an excellent eye for detail and knows how a room should be presented to show it off best. I found him to be very pleasant to deal with, no faff and turned round the photos quickly. I've just booked him again for another of my properties. Would highly recommend.

I have worked with Oliver closely over the past 12 months and he has become our go-to guy when it comes to photographing our property portfolio. We started out as a new company and had issues with a couple of photographers before coming across Oliver. Since his first job, he has photographed over a dozen of our properties. The images are always of a brilliant quality which we use across our adverts, website and in brochures. Oliver not only delivers with quality photos but always is on time for appointments, is not afraid to be hands on when needed and does not rush. Cannot be recommended enough!

Benefits of Aerial Filming & Photography by Drone

The aerial photography and filming industry is growing at an exponential rate, as the demand for high quality aerial imagery and videography has increased dramatically over the last few years, with many companies now offering a range of services to meet this demand. I have been a qualified UK drone pilot for 4 years now, and so I have more experience than most with drone filming and photography, and as a small company we can charge less than most!

In addition to the obvious benefits of being able to capture stunning images from above, there are also many other reasons why you should consider hiring a leading professional drone photography service such as ourselves. Here are some of the key advantages of using drones for your aerial filming or photography:

Accessibility

A drone is relatively tiny, enabling us to provide stunning aerial shots, slow pans and sweeping fly-bys in almost any situation or place – as long as it’s legal to do so. Our experienced drone photographers are experts at capturing stunning aerial shots while flying, so we’re even able to fly into and out-of buildings for some incredible footage – very handy for construction video tours!

Low Cost

Drones can be incredibly cost-effective if used correctly, especially compared to the traditional option of helicopter photography! They allow you to get great results without having to spend thousands. You can use them to film music videos, adverts, weddings, events, landscapes, buildings, wildlife, and much more.

Time Saving

Using a drone means that you no longer need to wait around for hours – they can be up and flying in minutes. This allows you to save time and money which can be put towards other areas of your business or your production.

Flexibility

If you want to create unique videos or photos then you need to be flexible. Using a drone gives you complete control over your shots, allowing you to shoot exactly how you want. It’s easy to change angles, zoom in and out, and move closer or further away from your subject – which is all a bit of a reach for traditional photography. Our drone photographer services captures properties from every conceivable angle you can think of!

Safety

At Photo Property, safety is paramount in our drone operations. We adhere to rigorous drone safety protocols and guidelines to ensure the well-being of our clients and the public. Our drone pilots are not only skilled but are also licenced and qualified drone photographers, holding certified drone pilot credentials. We are committed to operating within the legal framework, obtaining all necessary permits and permissions for each flight. With a strong emphasis on safety, you can trust that our drone services are not only affordable and reliable but also conducted with the highest standards of professionalism and compliance. Your peace of mind is our priority when it comes to drone operations.

Low Noise

When you’re shooting video or taking pictures you often need to keep to a certain volume. Drones make it possible to do this because they produce very little noise, especially compared to a helicopter. This makes it ideal for indoor environments such as offices, factories, and for films and weddings where anything too loud would be off-putting.

High Quality Images

Because drones carry a mini DSLR camera, they are capable of producing extremely high-quality images and 4k video, comparable to the quality of a full-size DSLR camera. When you combine this with the flexibility and accessibility of drones, you can create incredible content that looks like it was taken straight from the sky.

Estate Agent Drone Photography & Videos

Drone real estate photography offers is a great way to showcase your property. The video footage is an excellent marketing tool for the property, as it can be used to promote a property in many different ways, from social media content on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube to using directly on the property’s listing on sites like Rightmove, Zoopla and more.

Aerial views of properties are becoming increasingly popular amongst commercial landlords and estate agencies alike as they offer a unique perspective of the property which cannot be achieved by traditional methods. This type of aerial video footage can help potential buyers make their decision when viewing a property online and is one of our most commonly requested services.

Construction Drone Services

Our drone construction site photography offers a cutting-edge solution for construction companies seeking to revolutionise their project planning and presentation. We specialise in capturing high-resolution aerial footage of construction projects, allowing companies to superimpose CGI representations of new buildings seamlessly into the existing environment. We also excel at documenting construction in progress, providing invaluable insights into the evolution of your projects.

We can also showcase completed projects from the sky, offering a comprehensive view of your achievements. With our drone images you gain a powerful tool to enhance project management, engage stakeholders, and elevate the visual representation of your construction ventures.

Commercial Drone Services

Drones are now also being used more frequently in commercial property settings too. For example, as a leading commercial drone photography service, many owners of new bars, hotels and restaurants are asking us to capture aerial footage of their premises which work brilliantly when combined with traditional ground photography to make promotional videos. We can even use the drone to create a virtual tour of the inside of your building which can be shared across all your social media platforms or used to promote the development on your website.

Architectural Drone Footage

Architects and interior designers are always looking for new ideas and inspiration when designing buildings. Aerial images & videos offer a completely different viewpoint to the one we usually get from ground level. Architects can use stunning aerial photography to design new homes or offices and even redesign existing ones, as well as using drones to create promotional videos showing off their creations and projects.

Drone Roof Inspection

Our drone roof inspection service is a game-changer for property owners and managers. We employ our drone to conduct thorough and efficient drone survey of your roof, chimney, eaves and more, eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming manual assessments. With our high-resolution cameras, we can capture detailed images and videos of your roof’s condition, allowing you to identify potential issues such as damage, leaks, or wear and tear with precision. Whether you’re a homeowner, a real estate professional, or a property manager, our drone surveys provide a cost-effective and safe way to maintain and safeguard your property investments. Trust us to deliver comprehensive and actionable insights to ensure the longevity and integrity of your roofing infrastructure.

Drone Wedding Photography

We also offer drone wedding photography to document your special day from a unique angle. Due to advancements in technology and the ease of use of drones, you no longer have to rely on traditional ground photography to capture the beauty of your wedding day. As a result, there has been a huge increase in the number of people offering drone wedding videography. However, we believe there’s far more to it than simply filming the wedding from above.

Part of a good wedding photographer’s role is to blend in and document the day from the background, taking natural shots of the guests, the happy couple and the surroundings.

Flying a drone however, does create some noise, no matter how quiet it is. This noise can attract the attention of guests and be an unwelcome distraction and even an annoyance.

So the challenge, like with any piece of equipment, is understanding when and how to utilise it without excess and to be mindful of the wedding guests’ enjoyment.

Therefore It’s something we generally only use for those jaw-dropping cinematic shots of the venue and gardens before your guests arrive, and then again perhaps when a band is playing or guests are playing a game – any time when noise is less perceptible and does not interfere with anyone’s experience is ideal.

If you’re hiring an epic looking venue, aerial photography and drone videos of your wedding will undoubtedly convey the majesty of a place. We provide aerial videography that establishes the scene and sets the tone for the traditional ground photography to capture the story of your day.

You will of course have to seek permission from the land owners before booking a drone wedding photographer, so don’t let this detail slip off the to-do list!
