Aerial Photography?

Yes, I take images UK wide using a tethered Aerostat. My rig is a large Blue Balloon (Bluebird) tethered using high tech Dyneema line and a stabilised radio controlled DSLR pan/tilt camera rig. Images come out clear, and the rig can be used where many UAV's and fixed wing aircraft cant, such as London City. When high altitude images are to be taken, I utilise a fixed wing single engine aircraft for a flyover, circuiting the target area gathering images as I fly! All flights with the Helikite are approved by the Civil Aviation Authority. You can find Aerial Scotland aerial photography at www.aerialscotland.co.uk

Kite - I use a 3 Metre sled kite with stabilised rig and Nikon DSLR to take high quality aerial photographs of buildings, building sites, events, heritage sites and more. As long as there is space, 10-20MPH wind and no nearby power lines, I can capture images from over 1000 Feet. Note for aerial images over 60 Metres, 30 days notice is required for the purposes of Civil Aviation Authority clearance.

Pole Aerial Photography?

Yes! I use a custom built extendable portable pole to create elevated images. Whether it be an archaeological dig or corporate company headquarters, the pole is a fantastic way of creating a single photo, or for something a little different, a multi image stitched panorama.

Press photography?

Certainly! I work with a number of UK organisations and companies to create images for print and online publishing. With a 4x4, high quality camera equipment and GPS tagging, I can photograph almost any location or event.
