Still Image Gallery

Take a look at what we can do for your business

We shoot still images with a 24mm (35mm equivalent) lens mounted on camera equipped with a 20mp Sony sensor.

This provides superb high quality images which we can deliver to you as either edited images or raw files if you would prefer.

We can also offer a 'panoramic' image service where many photos are stitched together to build a very large image.

This is perfect if you want to print up to 5m wide

Below are just a few of the images of locations we have recently photographed.

(Some for our own enjoyment and some for clients)

East Hill Hastings

East Hill Hastings

Aerial view of the East Hill (including the funicular railway shown in the left of the picture) and the fishing port of Hastings in East Sussex.

As well as being a popular tourist area it's also a working fishing port and still supports the largest fleet of beach-launched fishing boats in Britain.

In order to take this shot. We launched our drone from above the beach, just below the high water mark, early in the morning when everything was still closed to avoid the crowds. It's taken from a height of approximately 100m above ground level.

Hooe Church

Hooe Church

Hooe church, dedicated to St Oswald is part Saxon and part norman Norman in construction

A local historian suggested that there was once a village surrounding the church that was burnt down during the plague and the village moved to it's 'new' location in Hooe Common but no evidence has been found to support this theory.

We will be revisiting this site in the coming months to see if we can spot anything from the air.
