A few weeks ago we were contacted by high-end estate agent Savills based in Guildford, asking if we could produce a short aerial video to help show off the location of a brand new property development that they were selling. The site in question is situated in the beautiful, stereotypically-English village of Puttenham in Surrey which lies in the 'Surrey Hills' — an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). 
 
As well as producing the video, we also took some aerial photographs which they could use in their printed marketing literature and on their website.

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.

National construction firm Willmott Dixon have used our services a number of times over the last few months to document some of their recently completed projects across the South East of the UK. 
 
The latest two sites to be filmed were Bohunt School in Worthing, West Sussex and Warfield School in Warfield, Berkshire. The brief for both of the videos was the same – produce a 2-3 minute promotional video comprising both aerial and ground-based footage, that would give someone who hasn't visited the site before an idea of the scale and complexity of the work that had been undertaken. 
Horizon Imaging was recently asked at short notice whether we could photograph the show house in a new housing development in Carshalton, Sutton, London. The photographs were to be taken the following day, and the final processed images had to be available later the same afternoon. Never one to say no to a challenge, Horizon Imaging's Director, David Hogg, was on site the following morning taking the photographs, and the processed photographs were delivered later the same day as requested.

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take some aerial photographs to show how close a new housing development is to the sea-front in the pretty coastal village of Prinsted, Hampshire. Whilst the sea cannot easily be seen from the site itself, the developer, Junnell Homes, were keen to illustrate that the development was within easy walking distance of the harbour – and what better way to do this than with a drone aerial photograph!
