Last month, Horizon Imaging was commissioned to produce a promotional video for specialist builders merchants, George Lines in Colnbrook, Berkshire. As well as capturing footage from around their yard and office, we also took a set of aerial photographs with our mast from a number of points around their site, and a set of photographs of all the products they stock.

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take some aerial photographs using our drone in and around the Madejski Football Stadium in Reading, Berkshire. The brief was to capture aerial photographs which exactly matched computer-generated (CG) views created by visualisation experts, Realm Communication. The resulting images (having combined the CG images and aerial photographs) would then be used to advertise the proposed regeneration scheme for the Stadium and the surrounding area, known as 'Royal Elm Park'.

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take a set of aerial photographs of a large and complex scaffolding installation at St Joseph's Church in Chalfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire. 
 
As the installation was so vast, the only way to truly appreciate its size and complexity was from the air. As the site was bounded on three sides by roads it was not possible to use the drone, so our fully-portable telescopic mast was used instead. The site was photographed three times over the course of a month to document the erection of the complicated scaffolding skeleton. During each visit elevated photographs were taken from every corner of the site so the progress of each section of the project could be easily seen.

Horizon Imaging's Director, David Hogg, was recently interviewed on his local radio station 'Surrey Hills Radio', by Mike Sharp during his show 'Reflections - Hits from the 50s 60s and 70s' – not a period David is familiar with it has to be said, as he was born in the 80s!
