Aerial Photography of Stately Home

commercial and aerial photography

I’m a professional photographer who does both ground and aerial photography. I have 2 drones in my “squadron” and both shoot 4k video and high definition stills.

I normally shoot with the DJI S900 which is a large 6 armed drone that supports a Panasonic GH4 digital SLR in the gimbal below (see my blog Panasonic GH4 for a review on the camera) but last week we also added the new DJI Phantom 3 Professional which is an excellent addition and a great back up to the large aircraft I fly.

Nick Brooks from Martin-Brooks Roofing Specialists ( asked me to take aerial photographs of a large prestigious project they are working on at a stately home near Rotherham.

Nick and his team are repairing or replacing the roof on the main hall, a stable block and a chapel in the grounds.

I met Nick on site and spent an hour or so taking a variety of photos at different heights and angles.

The advantage of having the client with me was that I could show him all the photos I was takingĀ in real time and he could approve them on the spot so he know he was getting the images he wanted straight away.

At the moment there is a lot of scaffolding around the main hall but this is due to come down in the next few weeks and it is planned for me to return then to do a further series of aerial photographs of the finished project.

caa approved and fully insured

I am CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) approved for aerial photography and fully insured too. I’m based in the Sheffield area but travel nationally as required by my clients.
