Posts from July 2014

Horizon Imaging was recently contacted by a researcher at the University of Sussex who is involved in a project looking at the feasibility of using UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) to automatically detect the presence of intruders on long-distance buried oil and gas pipelines. 
In order to show off their latest investment, Astro Soccer 4 U, based at the Whyteleafe Community Sports Centre in Surrey recently commissioned Horizon Imaging to take some plan-view aerial photographs of their new all-weather "3G" football pitch. 3G or Third Generation pitches use green plastic fibres and a granular rubber infill designed to mimic the feel and responsiveness of a grass pitch whilst allowing games to be played in all weathers without wearing out.

Horizon Imaging was recently asked to shoot a set of aerial photographs 50 feet above the top of an old building in Marylebone in London which is due to be converted into a high-class hotel. 
 
Most aerial photography companies use vehicle-mounted telescopic masts which are very convenient if you are operating from a flat road. However, getting a car onto the roof of a building in central London is no easy task! 
Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take a set of aerial photographs using our drone at the Cowdray Park Polo Club in Midhurst, West Sussex. 
It's not all drones, masts and architectural photographs at Horizon Imaging! Recently a fellow photographer asked me to cover for him at some rehearsals for a theatre play and I was delighted to accept

I was recently asked to assist in recording an organ recital at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Godalming, Surrey. Together with my father, we set up two microphones, 30 metres of microphone cable, a mixing desk and two laptops to do the recording.
