Aerial imaging

At Cripps Photography we use professional unmanned aircraft to offer a range of high quality drone photography services that capture rich stills and HD footage up to 4K, for clients in a variety of industries.

Following are just some examples of the services we offer.

  • Aerial stills for advertising, PR, commercial and editorial use

  • HD video footage for TV, advertising, websites and presentations.

  • 4k video for high-end productions, movies and for greater control of post production manipulation.

  • Drone surveys - stills or HD video. A cost effective way to assess maintenance issues with structures and properties.

  • Construction site overviews and progress imagery - either throughout development or on completion.

  • Archaeological surveys, overviews and progress imagery.

  • Property and land photography

  • Agricultural mapping and crop surveys - including spectral plant health imagery.

We are constantly innovating and expanding so please do get in touch if you have any specific requirements.


We are fully compliant with current drone regulations and hold a Civil Aviation Authority Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO). We hold £2 million public liability insurance and all pilots working with us have undergone a rigorous CAA approved training program.

Our CAA permission is not only an assurance of our professional approach and thorough safety operational procedures, but a vital legal requirement that protects the drone operator, client and members of the public - be warned, it is illegal to hire a drone for commercial purposes if the operator does not have CAA permission, and such operators will not have adequate insurance.

Safety is of paramount importance so every assignment has a number of processes before a flight can take place; There is a preliminary pre-deployment feasibility check which includes assessing airspace catagory, permission and proximity to nearby people, structures, roads etc. If the feasibility check is passed a more thorough analysis is made of aeronautical and OS maps, followed by site surveys and full risk assessments, which are carried out prior to any flight taking place.
