Over the last few months we have been photographing a number of sites for digital marketing agency OneAgency on behalf of their client Bailey, specialists in roof and general building cladding products. 
 
The work involved capturing a mixture of ground-level and aerial imagery of a number of sites where Bailey's products have been used. So far we're only able to show photos from two of these projects, but we will be sharing more once permission has been granted.

Since December 2016 we have been documenting the progress at a soil remediation site in Tipner, Portsmouth, Hampshire for national remediation experts SoilFix. 
 
During each visit we have been capturing plan-view progress photographs of the enormous 6-hectare site, which we have had to split up into 3 separate sections — even when using our widest-angle lens and flying at our maximum permissible altitude of 400ft the site doesn't fit in a single image!

Last month we were commissioned by Corniche Builders to photograph one of their latest projects — a brand new flint-clad church hall in Redhill, Surrey. Justifiably proud of the beautiful design and execution of this new building, Corniche were keen to show it off to its best using professional ground-level and elevated photographs. 
 
The church hall was built directly next to the existing 19th Century St John the Evangelist Church, and it was key that the design and appearance of the new hall matched the church as closely as possible.

The following blog post has been adapted from a new case study which can be found in the Case Studies section of our website. 
 
One of the prime applications / benefits of aerial photography — be it from our drone or mast — is the ability to capture the size and setting of a site in a single image.

In the lead up to Christmas last year (yes it does feel a long time ago now!), we were commissioned by the Bombay Sapphire distillery in Whitchurch, Hampshire, to take some architectural and candid 'people' photographs at one of their many Christmas themed events. 
 
The photographs had to capture the glitz and glammer of the venue (which had been especially decorated for the event), the guests enjoying both themselves and Bombay Sapphire's special cocktails which were flowing freely for the duration of the event (!), as well as the general ambience of the event — helping to convey what it's like to attend one of their functions.

Well, after a long time in development, I'm very pleased to welcome you to our brand new website! 
 
Taking the best bits from our previous website (which had been online since 2014), our new site is now fully responsive (meaning it scales intelligently depending on what device you're viewing it on, be it a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone) and will have significantly more content added to it over the coming weeks and months.

Just before Christmas we were contacted by luxury housing developer, Millwood Designer Homes, to photograph one of their developments in Cliffsend, Kent. 
 
Millwood were keen to start expanding their range of marketing imagery to include photographs of their entire developments – rather than just photographs of individual houses as they had been using previously.

Earlier in the autumn we were commissioned by Kent-based scaffolding specialists Scaffolding Access to document a large and very complex installation on the roof of the Royal Engineers Museum in Gillingham, Kent. The existing roof had become too expensive to maintain, so a brand new roof would be installed in its place – but only once the existing roof had been covered by a scaffolding exoskeleton that would allow the building work to proceed regardless of the weather conditions.

A few weeks ago we were contacted by a local industrial estate agent who deal with the sale and letting of industrials units and offices in the Hampshire and Surrey area. 
 
They were looking to create a listing for an entire site in Aldershot comprising of a number of small industrial units, and they were keen to show off the size and location of the site from the air.

Last month we were commissioned to take an updated set of aerial photographs of the beautiful Aldro School for boys in Shackleford near Godalming, Surrey. 
 
Since we last visited the school back in October 2014 they have built a brand new sports hall on part of the site, and this was one of the changes they wanted to capture in the new imagery.
