If you are involved in television, film or video production you are probably already familiar with the benefits that aerial photography, videography and filming can bring to your projects. You are also likely to be aware of the significant legal obligations and investment required to carry out such commercial aerial work legally. You may also have come to appreciate the expertise needed to deliver reliable results to a high standard.
Hummingbird Droneworks therefore offer professional aerial photography, videography and filming services for hire on an hourly, daily or retainer basis. We provide media professionals with the best way of obtaining exactly the aerial footage they want without the hassle, cost or risks associated with trying to do it for themselves.
Hummingbird Droneworks is fully qualified and equipped to carry out commercial aerial work. Our pilots and camera operators have expertise developed through specialist training and many hours of flying and filming experience. All our pilots are fully qualified and possess a current:
Hiring us provides you with the latest Camera Drone / UAV / Quadcopter / Multicopter technology maintained to the highest standards. It also ensures your operation meets UK Civil Aviation Authority requirements and complies with the Data Protection Act 1998.
We can provide you with high definition edited or unedited raw footage in HD, Full HD, 2K, UHD, 4k videos as well as 16 megapixel still images. They can be shot in the standard 4:3 and widescreen 16:9 aspect ratios.
As mentioned above unless you hold an appropriate permit from the Civil Aviation Authority, it is illegal for any individual or organisation in the UK to take aerial photographs, videos or film for commercial gain. 'Commercial gain' means receiving payment of any kind in return for aerial imagery whether directly or indirectly, such as when the aerial images form part of a larger work that is ultimately sold on, e.g. a film or wedding video. This also includes payment 'in kind' such as returning a favour. Furthermore, it's impossible for any operator to obtain insurance cover for any commercial operation without having a current CAA Permit. Heavy fines and even a Prison sentance can be handed down, so why take the risk?
Hummingbird Droneworks holds the required 'Permit for Commercial Operations' (PfCO) granted to us each year by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our pilots are professionally qualified and BNUC-S™ licenced to fly drones commercially. We are fully insured to carry out commercial operations in compliance with the latest UK and EU regulations. We maintain our equipment to high standards and follow strict operating procedures to minimise risk. More...
