UAV Aerial Photography England Suffolk
Introduction to our Aerial Photography and Videography Services
The Suffolk Photo Studio, is one of the East of Englands largest studio complex. We have been attending weddings and other events since we started however did you know we can carry out all your aerial photography needs. These can be utilized for Videography of venues and property but also to use the images taken from our top digital cameras. To see some examples of our work please take a look at the latest aerial shots in our gallery.
We will use our top quality Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to check your property and capture the perfect images and video footage for your needs. We have worked with top golf clubs, hotels and other venues. The equipment we use goes under many names including the following:
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or UAV
Unmanned Aerial System or UAS
Small Unmanned Surveillance Aircraft or SUSA
Remotely Piloted Aircraft or RPA
Remotely Operated Vehicle or ROV
Multirotor (Tricopter, Quadcopter, Hexacopter, Octocopter)
This list is not inclusive of all the names that aerial equipment can go by however, it includes the most commonly used of these. Fixed wing aircrafts use wings to generate lift for flight whereas helicopter operators are more dynamic with a greater diversity of functions. Most fixed wing aircrafts are not used for aerial filming. Instead, multirotor and helicopter operators make for better aerial filming equipment as they are far better for low level flying, hovering, and in general have a wider range of diverse flight services than fixed wing operators. Our aerial drone equipment allows us to capture some truly amazing footage of luxurious venues and offers a great way for clients to visualise your venue in a unique way. Our innovative videos are a fantastic selling point for golf courses, wedding venues, event venues, sports venues and more!
Due to leading flight technology and recent advances in equipment, including cameras and batteries, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles can now be compared to manned aircraft. With these advances, UAVs can now capture video footage at a comparable quality to footage captured by manned aerial vehicles. UAVs can fly closer to the ground and closer to objects and people than manned aircraft can. This combined with their ability to capture footage comparable to manned aerial vehicles means that UAVs are extremely versatile and therefore the perfect tool for filmmakers and use across a great variety of film genres. Our aerial equipment can be used to capture high impact, dramatic shots as well as fantastic zoom shots meaning that we can produce footage beyond all expectation.
We offer our aerial videography and photography services at your film location or event at a significantly cheaper price than it would be to hire a helicopter. Our team use our very own dedicated LED screen which enables us to monitor footage from the ground whilst filming. The screen allows for directorial input to be sent directly to our flight team and immediate review of the footage of your venue and angles meaning during the editing process we can make your video and pictures look their best. Control methods employed by our team vary and include tablet and laptop control along with the use of transmitters and we can even fly while the Multicopter is not even visible by using special goggles, allowing visual display downloads. The type of filming required and capturing the best images for the job will determine which control method is used.
Due to a number of limitations placed on the use of UAVs, every operator must operate inside a set of guidelines.These guidelines are put in place to ensure that UAVs and manned aircraft always work in separate airspace.
The main rules to keep in mind are:
• UAVs can fly to a maximum altitude of 400 feet (120 metres)
• Distance between operator and UAV must be kept below 500 metres
• Minimum visibility of 5 km is needed
• UAVs must be flown in the operators line of sight
• Special permission is required to fly a UAV at night
• Permission from the owner of the take-off point must be obtained before flying
• UAVs must be flown more than 50 meters away from structures, vehicles or people that are not under guardianship of the person controlling the aircraft.
We are very capable to fly close to the floor, buildings or even products and people as long as they are aware of our presence and filming/ photography needs. It would not be safe to fly near the public as your not sure how they will react in certain situations.
