Scotland Aerial / Drone / UAV Filming

Filming with drones has allowed me to pick up 3 Vimeo staff picks as well as a winning several awards, including best landscape category at the New York Drone Film Festival. Additionally Wild Scotland was featured by National Geographic in their short film showcase.

As my background is in filmmaking, composing cinematic shots comes naturally. Getting the drone flying through spaces and utilising foreground really helps bring shots alive. Adding dynamic movement to shots brings it alive allowing us to get incredible perspectives on otherwise inaccessible locations.

I use the DJI Inspire 2 with the X7 camera. Additionally, I have a backup Inspire 2 with the X5S camera.

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I shoot anywhere in the world.

EQUIPMENT

Filming with the Inspire 2 with the X7 & X5S cameras has taken aerial filming to a new level! Capable of shooting 6k RAW, Prores or H.264/5 the camera is really an incredible bit of kit, suitable for the highest levels of production.

The days of heavy octocopters which take ages to setup are almost a thing of the past. The Inspire 2 with its rapid setup time is an efficient platform to work with.

SAFETY AND LICENCE

Above anything else safety comes first. I'm CAA approved and BNUC-s certified, therefore ensuring the highest standards in safety and operation whilst aerial filming. I am fully insured with £3 million public liability. Prior to any flying hazards are identified and risk assessed.
