Experienced drone pilot with full commercial insurance, approved by 1st Option Safety Group on their "Pre-Vetted Unmanned Aircraft" list under the name Cameradrone.

Background in Film/TV (Grip) and aviation. Previously I have worked on everything from music promo's to feature films and filmed thousands of skydives with helmet mounted cameras. Qualified EURO-usc BNUC-s in 2013.

In addition to the work listed below I have filmed / edited numerous pieces for tourism, charities and corporate promotion. Two of my films have been featured on the BBC News website.

I have a range of equipment ready to fly including DJI Inspire 2 with X5S or X7 camera and a 4x4 to get it to any location. Having studied Aerospace engineering my drones are well maintained and updated.

Happy to train crew as gimbal operator / spotter or provide my own. Please visit my website for more info including IMDB link and "Partnerships" page for camera operators/DoP's/self shooters who want to have their "own" drone operation, feel free to contact me even if it's just for advice.

I'm proud to supply high quality results with competitive rates, I try to keep my overheads as low as possible and be as helpful and flexible as I can. Read Less
