Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take an aerial photograph of a patch of woodland in Bracknell, Berkshire, for the local council as it is home to a unique population of rhododendron plants. Taking off from a neighbouring rugby pitch, our drone was flown up to 400 feet (its maximum permissible altitude) and captured a range of different overview photographs of the woodland, one of which is shown on the right. As well as providing an interesting viewpoint of the woodland, this image will primarily be used on an information board in the visitor's car park – overlaid with boundaries, footpaths and areas of interest.

David Hogg from Horizon Imaging has always been passionate about caring for the environment. Last September Horizon Imaging started offsetting all carbon emissions from our car when travelling to and from our customers' sites, from the gas and electricity used in our office, and from all non-recycleable waste sent to landfill (see our blog post here). Now we have gone not one – but two steps further.

David Hogg from Horizon Imaging recently gave a talk at Bookham Camera Club on Drone Aerial Photography. The evening was split into two halves, with a flying demonstration in the first half and a talk on the history and current state-of-the-art in drones in the second half.

We often get requests from clients to use our versatile drone aerial photography platform for taking aerial photographs in built-up areas. Unfortunately, this is fraught with difficulties – both practical and legal. This post aims to clarify the rules and regulations that surround the use of drones in built-up areas like towns and cities.
