John Durrant from Hello Photo and Doctor Photo, recently wrote an article for the Estate Agent Today blog entitled "Radio Controlled UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) – On the Up. But are they legal?".
As part of the article, John refers to points raised in a set of guidelines I have written for hiring an Aerial Photographer in the UK – guidelines which will shortly be available for free from this website.
Horizon Imaging was recently contacted by a researcher at the University of Sussex who is involved in a project looking at the feasibility of using UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) to automatically detect the presence of intruders on long-distance buried oil and gas pipelines.
In order to show off their latest investment, Astro Soccer 4 U, based at the Whyteleafe Community Sports Centre in Surrey recently commissioned Horizon Imaging to take some plan-view aerial photographs of their new all-weather "3G" football pitch. 3G or Third Generation pitches use green plastic fibres and a granular rubber infill designed to mimic the feel and responsiveness of a grass pitch whilst allowing games to be played in all weathers without wearing out.

I was recently asked to assist in recording an organ recital at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Godalming, Surrey. Together with my father, we set up two microphones, 30 metres of microphone cable, a mixing desk and two laptops to do the recording.
