Aerial Photography

For Aerial Photography we use a Cessna 172 Aircraft.  Our aerial photographers are qualified and very experienced in the capture and processing of aerial photography imagery.  We often perform aerial photography services for customers that require construction aerial photography, vertical aerial photography and rural aerial photography.

Commercial Ground Photography

Most of our commercial real estate clients order our standard commercial photography service.  A large portion of these order our aerial and commercial package which saves them money. Construction companies employ us to capture their construction site progress with our construction photography services.  The same can be said for architects who engage us to capture architectural photography.

Drone Photography

Our photography drones are fitted with quality cameras and produce fantastic imagery. Our photography drones specialise in Real Estate Drone Photography, Construction Drone Photography, Development Drone Photography, 360 view Drone Photography, Perspective View Drone Photography, and for basic drone roof inspections.

Drone Perspective Views

The Drones uses its inbuilt GPS and Altitude hold capabilities that permit the Drone  to hover and capture the required view at the required height. Our photography drones are fitted with quality cameras and produce fantastic imagery for 360 Perspective Views.  Developers and marketing agencies have already reaped the benefits of this type of Drone Photography

Elevated (Mast) Photography
