Wessex Aerial Photography is a small business based in Hampshire. We provide an aerial filming, photography, inspection and surveying service for individuals, small businesses, and any other companies and organisations who would like to take advantage of the benefits of the advantages offered by aerial cameras and imaging devices.
Whether it’s a short video for your hotel’s website, an aerial tour of your golf club, some shots of your house and garden, or a survey and inspection of buildings and structures, we can provide the service at surprisingly affordable prices. We operate mainly in the Wessex region; Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, and Somerset, but we welcome enquiries from both national and international clients.
The idea for Wessex Aerial Photography began in 2013 when it became clear that the arrival of camera equipped quadcopters and other multirotor aerial vehicles (drones) provided opportunities that had previously been denied to anyone who didn’t have access to a commercial pilot’s licence. Since then Wessex Aerial Photography has changed hands and it is now managed by two aviation industry professionals who aim to take the business to a wider portfolio of aerial and filming services.
Copter Drones is the online retail side of the business. We supply the full range of DJI Phantom quadcopters and all associated spares and accessories. The DJI range of Phantoms are considered by many to be the market leaders for small drones of this type. They are used by both individuals and businesses for aerial photography on an amateur or professional basis. Prices range start at about £350 and include models that can carry a GoPro action camera and those that have an in built camera controlled by a temporary WiFi connection set up between the drone and an app on a smartphone or tablet. They are surprisingly easy to fly and are programmed with features that make innovative use of GPS technology.
Drone UAV is our blog site in which we add posts covering quadcopter flying and UAV news. As we fly DJI Phantoms most of the posts are related to the various aspects of testing and development of this range. The technology is evolving rapidly and hardly a week goes by without there being news of a company announcing a breakthrough or someone finding a new way to put drones to good use. Aerial photography is just one small sector of an ever increasing range of drone applications. The potential and actual uses for drones include scientific surveying and research, structural surveying, environmental studies, agriculture, and many others. It seems certain that we have entered a new era in which UAV will be used in an increasing number of ways.
