Posts from December 2014

This is just a brief note to wish all of our website visitors a wonderful Christmas break! The cartoon on the right is by the terrific cartoonist Joe Heller and pretty much sums up the popularity of drones at the tail end of 2014 – you can't go anywhere without seeing 
reference to them now! Who knows what will be flying around this time next year ... 
 
All the best for now and see you in 2015! 
Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take a set of panoramic aerial photographs to simulate the views from a proposed new house in St George's Hill in Weybridge, Surrey. 
 
As the required photographs had to be taken from an exact height (as calculated by the architect of the new property), our telescopic mast was used instead of the drone. The mast is able to support the camera at a perfectly fixed point in space, allowing panoramic photographs to be captured with no changes in perspective between the photographs. 
Horizon Imaging was recently interviewed as an industry expert by Sky News following the release of a report by the UK Civil Aviation Authority detailing a near-miss between a drone and a passenger airliner in July 2014. The report is particularly concerning in the run up to Christmas where drones are tipped to be one of the most popular presents. 
Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take a set of aerial photographs to support a planning application covering the refurbishment of a charming set of farm buildings near the beautiful town of Petworth in West Sussex. 
 
Due to the size and nature of the site, our aerial photography drone was used to capture a range of different photographs of the collection of buildings, from a wide variety of heights and positions.
