Get a new perspective...

We offer professional aerial photography for Essex and the surrounding areas. Using high quality drones, we provide stunning images plus breathtaking HD video

What do we offer?

Essex Aerial Photography can provide you with services for a variety of jobs that would have previously been undertaken using more expensive and less safe methods. Drones also open up brand new opportunities which would have seemed impossible just a few years ago. Below are some ideas of where we can help:

Building Inspections

For both commercial and residential clients, we can carry out a visual inspection of buildings. This approach is safer and is vastly more efficient compared to other methods

Construction Sites

Whether you're building a small or a large development, we can visit your site on regular intervals to take photos and video to aid tracking of the build progress

Estate Agents

Stand out from the competition and add an extra benefit by showcasing properties from a unique perspective. We can provide a fast turnaround on photographs and video

Promotional Material

Showcase your company by allowing us to provide you with high quality images and up to 4K video for you to use in promotional videos and marketing materials

Special Events

Celebrate special occasions such as weddings, birthdays and family events by capturing the moment in a truly original way. Photos and videos that will last a lifetime

Other Services

If you have another requirement where you believe using a drone would be beneficial, please get in touch. We work with both individuals and companies, small or large

Why choose us?

We are a small, local, independent company where customer service is key. We're happy when our client is happy. We are committed to changing the sometimes negative perception of drones and want to demonstrate that they can be used safely and bring many positive benefits.

During these unprecedented times, we will ensure that we adhere to all current government guidance on social distancing. Drone operations by their nature require minimum distances to be implemented for safety reasons but we will enhance these where necessary.

Other reasons for choosing Essex Aerial Photography are:

We are approved by the Civil Aviation Authority
We hold a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the CAA which allows us to legally fly a drone for commercial purposes. This also allows us to fly with reduced restrictions compared to hobbyists.

Not all drone operators are the same
Safety is our number 1 priority. Flying the drone is only a small part of the whole process. We carry out a thorough pre-site and on-site assessment for every job and only fly if we are 100% satisfied it is safe to do so.

We are fully insured
You can feel safe in the knowledge that we have comprehensive insurance from Coverdrone, the UK's leading insurance specialist for drone operations. This includes £1 million of public liability insurance.

Examples of our work

Below are some sample videos and photos of previous pieces of work which showcase the variety of places where a drone can be used. They might also help give you some inspiration for your project.

How much do we charge?

Because no two jobs are the same, with each one being uniquely tailored for the client, our prices may vary. However, the vast majority of requests will fall into the following categories. Therefore, unlike some of our competitors, we are happy to publish our prices upfront for our standard services.

We are confident our prices are some of the most competitive around.

Additionally, for clients using us regularly, such as Estate Agents or construction companies, we offer reduced bundle rates plus retainer packages. Please get in touch so we can provide you with a free no obligation quote.
