Aerial Drone Photography & Video
Anna is a fully qualified and insured drone pilot (since 2015), with the PfCO (Operational Authorisation) from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Wherever she goes, her favourite drone (a Mavic Pro) goes too!
Oil giant Shell provided a helicopter, a pilot, and a winchman so she could photograph oil installations in Holland many years ago……But shooting aerial photography with a drone, from inspirational settings such as the top of a mountain takes some beating!
Before a drone shoot takes place Anna checks the area does not lie in prohibited or restricted airspace. The weather can be a challenge in Scotland. There are limits on windspeed and a drone cannot fly in the rain, so a degree of flexibility is required! Permission from a landowner may be required.
Anna took her first drone photographs at the £1.4 billion Queensferry Crossing, to add value to her contribution as the project photographer during the build (2010-2017). Since then she has carried out a variety of work for estate agents, hotels, housing associations and at sports events. She is a keen hill walker and if the weather is promising, doesn’t hesitate to pack “Droney McDroneface” into her rucksack!
Adding drone photography to a client’s architectural brief adds a startling third dimension to a project. A landscape may be stunning from ground level, and set into context from the air. Add in a video flythrough to grab your audience’s attention. Contact Anna to discuss your project!
