About Us

I hope you find my website both interesting and helpful. I have been taking pictures, both cinematography and photography, since the age of twelve. I am passionate about what I do and believe that passion shines through in my work, whether on the ground or in the air!

Flying drones is just another way for me of capturing images. Another tool that offers me the chance to work from a different perspective. I work as both a single drone operator and as a two man crew. I am equally at home whether shooting material for a local estate agent or providing a full, comprehensive three man drone service for a TV production company.

The type of project and it's complexity will determine how a project is crewed. Because of this my daily fee can vary, so I suggest you give me a call and we can have an informal chat. Once I know what is involved and the viability of the task, I will be in a better position to provide you with an accurate quotation for the job.

David Hart

Pilot & cinematographer, BNUC qualified / CAA approved / PfCO
David's career spans more than 25 years as a TV cameraman, filming a vast array of programmes for
the BBC and he has a wealth of knowledge in post production.

David often teams up with Howard when there is a requirement for dual flying. The pair have recently completed gathering all the TV publicity material for EDF at the Hinkley Point C site in Somerset.

Having a two man drone operation brings with it a new set of disciplines, which in turn provides clients with an excellent opportunity to capture material not always possible with a single operator.
