Drone photography and videography has transformed how imagery can be used in marketing and PR to create more dynamic and eye-catching material. In the past, aerial photo and video could only be captured using planes which was an expensive and less accessible option. Now we can use drones to produce stunning images and footage to work with your budget and business needs.

Whether this is to promote your services and products, to aid in the sale and marketing of land, buildings or houses, or to record a specific event, we will provide you with an expert and friendly service in Carlisle, Cumbria, Scottish borders, or Northumberland. I also travel around the UK for some bespoke projects.



Even before the team arrives on site, we have to do a number of flight preparations. This includes Airspace checks, offsite and onsite risk assessments, hazard inspections, weather reports and preparation of the flight brief. The checks don't stop there, as more safety checks are carried out throughout the flight day from before take-off to after landing the drone. Safety is top priority when it comes to drone flying.



Our Pilot in Command carries a Permissions for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority ensuring all drone flight is safe and legal. All Alastair Herd Photography flights adhere to the requirements of the Civil Aviation Authority Procedures and Air Navigation Order regarding drone flights and safety and also where necessary GDPR.2018
