Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to photograph an affordable housing development in the London borough of Bromley from the air. The development is right in the heart of suburban London so our telescopic mast was used to capture the set of elevated photographs. A further set of ground-based architectural photographs were also taken to complete the package of marketing images for the building's developer.

The development is right in the heart of suburban London so our telescopic mast was used to capture the set of elevated photographs. A further set of ground-based architectural photographs were also taken to complete the package of marketing images for the building's developer. 
 
Being fully-portable, the mast could be erected on pavements, on the roadside, and even carried through the building itself and erected in the giant courtyard in the centre of the development. Its flexibility and portability allowed us to capture shots otherwise impossible with a traditional vehicle-mounted mast, whilst still being tall enough to capture images from up to 15 metres (50 feet) above the ground. 
 
In several instances it was difficult to get the mast far back enough to capture the entire development in one photograph, so several overlapping images were taken and then stitched together afterwards on the computer. As the human eye is able to scan a much wider scene than can usually fit in a single photograph (even with a wide-angle lens), stitching images together is one of the few ways of capturing such a wide scene in one go. 
 
Large architectural developments such as this often benefit from the slight increase in altitude afforded by our telescopic mast as it tends to be easier to appreciate the scale and layout of the development from an elevated viewpoint. If you have a large (or small!) development that you would like to have photographed from a fresh perspective, please contact me today and I would be delighted to discuss your requirements with you.
