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:

Residential Inspections

If you think you're missing some tiles or have roof damage, we can safely fly our drone up to inspect saving you the hassle of using ladders or erecting expensive scaffolding

Commercial Properties

For commercial customers, we can provide photos and video showcasing your property or carrying out a visual inspection before and after any building work is carried out

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

Marketing Material

Promote your company by allowing us to provide you with high quality images plus fully edited HD videos set to music for you to use on your website and social media

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

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.

Other reasons for choosing Essex Aerial Photography are:

We are approved by the Civil Aviation Authority
We hold an Operational Authorisation (EUAS9737) in the Specific Category from the CAA which allows us to legally fly a drone with reduced restrictions compared to hobbyists, enabling more flexibility for jobs.
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.
Packages for all budgets
Due to changing times, we have now taken the decision to pivot the company to a part time endeavour primarily working at weekends and evenings. The good news is that this means lower prices and no VAT.

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.

Customer Feedback

A selection of reviews received from our customers:

"The service was very reasonably priced in what I imagine is a very competitive market... The end result was stunning and the clients were impressed as it provided them with visibility that they wouldn't normally have... highly recommended."

Phil Martin PTS Consulting

"Craig was extremely professional and managed to get out to site straight away, we then received the shots back later that evening, an extremely efficient turnaround.....the pictures were great and we were very pleased. Will definitely use their services again in the future."

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.

For clients using us regularly, such as 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.

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