Last month, Horizon Imaging was commissioned to produce a promotional video for specialist builders merchants, George Lines in Colnbrook, Berkshire. As well as capturing footage from around their yard and office, we also took a set of aerial photographs with our mast from a number of points around their site, and a set of photographs of all the products they stock.

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to take a set of aerial photographs of a large and complex scaffolding installation at St Joseph's Church in Chalfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire. 
 
As the installation was so vast, the only way to truly appreciate its size and complexity was from the air. As the site was bounded on three sides by roads it was not possible to use the drone, so our fully-portable telescopic mast was used instead. The site was photographed three times over the course of a month to document the erection of the complicated scaffolding skeleton. During each visit elevated photographs were taken from every corner of the site so the progress of each section of the project could be easily seen.

Horizon Imaging was recently commissioned to photograph a stunning barn conversion nestling in the heart of the South Downs National Park. The property sits on a large plot of farmland which has been divided into gardens, paddocks, areas of wild grassland and coppiced woodland. A stroll through the woodland leads you down to the boundary fence with the Pulborough Brooks wetlands, where you are rewarded with breath-taking views across the wetlands and over to the South Downs beyond. 
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 human eye is quite remarkable in its ability to capture detail in both the very dark and very bright areas of a scene at the same time (this is known as a scene with a 'High Dynamic Range'). However, you will probably have noticed that digital cameras aren't nearly as good as the human eye in this respect. For example, a single photograph taken inside a house will almost always fail to capture sufficient detail in both the interior of the room and the view out of the windows. Or a brilliant sunset might look incredible to the naked eye – full of rich reds, oranges and yellows – but to a digital camera it just looks like an amorphous white blob! 
By far the most popular application for drones is taking aerial photographs for the marketing industry. Whether you are trying to sell a new property, advertise a hotel that enjoys a particularly spectacular location, or a school which has expansive grounds that cannot be fully appreciated from ground level – drone aerial photography is the way forward.
