Get in touch to discuss your project…

Our team has close to a decade’s experience of shooting architectural photography and now we can take that breadth of experience into the skies!

We are based in Blackburn, Lancashire so have great connections to Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and the surrounding North West areas. Using the latest Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, and a variety of camera options we are capable of capturing breathtaking, high resolution  images from perspectives which traditional architectural photography can’t achieve.

We have full public liability insurance and Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), having gone through its designated training programmes to operate drones in a commercial environment. This gives you the peace of mind that we have the required skill to operate in any environment.
