Posts from October 2014

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to produce a short 2-3 minute commercial showreel for Blue Bear Systems Research. 
 
Producing the video involved visiting the customer's site to shoot some specific new footage, as well as sifting through Gigabytes of existing footage to accumulate enough material to produce the showreel. 
David Hogg from Horizon Imaging recently gave a presentation to the Guildford Photographic Society on Drone Aerial Photography. 
 
As a previous member and speaker at the Guildford Photographic Society, it was a pleasure to return to the club and update the members on the developments in Drone Aerial Photography since my last talk back in 2008 – a great deal has changed in the industry in those 6 years! 
Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to photograph a beautiful converted 13th Century barn in the village of Ickleton, near Cambridge. The barn, together with one of the neighbouring 'modern barns', is now being used by medical technology company Team Consulting. As part of their brand identity, Team Consulting were looking for ways to show off their beautiful building and its proximity to the surrounding countryside – something which could not be achieved using traditional ground-level photographs. 
As the number of people looking to offer commercial aerial photography services using drones (or "small unmanned surveillance aircraft" to give them their official CAA title) continues to rise, I often get asked what regulations operators have to follow. 
 
All the regulations governing commercial "aerial work" (any work involving unmanned aerial platforms for commercial gain) are contained within the CAA document 'CAP 393 – Air Navigation: The Order and the Regulations'. 
Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to produce an introductory video for the commercial troubleshooting company, Executive Commercial. 
 
Just like the introductory video on our homepage, the video had to be short, concise, and professionally filmed and edited.
