AERIAL VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY IN KENT
The UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) combines my passions for flying and photography.
My early years in the Aircraft Industry with Rollason Aircraft and Engines gave me a thorough grounding in both fixed and rotary winged aircraft.
I built and repaired airframe and engines for light aircraft including those involved in world class aerobatic championships.
I moved to Bristow Helicopters and worked on both fixed and rotating wing commercial aircraft.
After 10 years in the aircraft industry I left to join the family business manufacturing fertiliser (from waste), adhesives and dealing in property development/ management. I became the Managing Director and am a Chartered Waste Manager.
I gained my Pilot’s Licence in 2004 and being a keen photographer, enjoyed taking photographs from the air.
I found that by taking regular aerial pictures of the various Sites we were working on that I could monitor progress more efficiently and that this amongst other things was an invaluable management tool. The UAV seemed a natural progression in that it could safely access areas at a much closer range and at a fraction of the cost.
I obtained my BNUC-S in 2014 and have applied it to a range of uses including: construction sites; industrial stock-taking; media; marketing; building surveys; 2D & 3D Mapping and crop surveying.
