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.

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.

In August we were commissioned by Two Hoots campsite in Alresford, Hampshire, to produce a promotional video that would not only show off their accommodation and facilities, but more importantly their stunning countryside location. 
 
As in previous video shoots, we were given completely free reign over how to shoot and produce the video, and one sunny August afternoon we spent several hours on site capturing short video clips from multiple angles - using both our drone and ground-based video cameras.

1 BILLION - That’s the number of unique visitors to YouTube every month. If your horizon is just the UK, then I’m afraid that number falls to a mere 20 million! By 2017, video is expected to account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic (according to Cisco). Every indicator on the subject of video points to rapid growth of this type of engaging online content. With people turning to video for their entertainment and information needs, small businesses need to realise that failure to include video in their internet marketing strategies will set them at a disadvantage. If you remain unsure, here are five sound business reasons why you need to consider video content now. 
Earlier this year Horizon Imaging was commissioned to produce another promotional video for national construction firm Willmott Dixon who we have worked with on a number of projects in the past. This time we were asked to document a number of extensions and landscape alterations at the Dover Christ Church Academy in Dover, Kent. The video will be used at internal staff meetings to illustrate the variety of work Willmott Dixon undertakes, providing a particularly valuable insight to those members of staff who were not directly involved in the Dover Christ Church Academy project. 
Last month Horizon Imaging was commissioned to film a charity dinner for the Albert Edward masonic lodge based in Camberley, Surrey. The event took place at the Runnymede-on-Thames hotel in Surrey, and it consisted of informal drinks, a 3-course dinner, congratulatory speeches and a chance for the guests to let their hair down at the end with a live DJ / singer! 
Horizon Imaging was recently asked to put together a short promotional video for Hampshire-based close-up magician Danny Jurmann of Red Hat Magic. The footage would be filmed at a charity dinner arranged by a local masonic lodge, who will be receiving their own promotional video for the event soon – watch this space! 
Towards the end of last year, Horizon Imaging were commissioned by Willmott Dixon to produce a short promotional video documenting their work at Millais School in Horsham, West Sussex, where two new buildings had been erected. 
Earlier in the year, Horizon Imaging was approached by the University of Surrey to cover their 'Enterprise Summer School' event which was being held at G-Live in Guildford, Surrey. 
 
As well as taking photographs to capture the atmosphere of the event, the University also asked Horizon Imaging to produce a promotional video for their website, to give people a flavour of what the course has to offer. We were on site for an entire day, taking reportage-style photos and videos of the various activities that took place, as well as interviewing some of the attendees to hear what they thought of the event.

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to create a new promotional video for the Surrey-based business-to-business consulting firm, Passionate Innovation. Nigel Biggs started Passionate Innovation over 5 years ago in order to help small to medium companies think 'outside the box' when trying to develop new ideas to grow their business – or as Nigel puts it, thinking 'inside someone else's box'!
