15+ Years of Experience
The Director and Founder of Horizon Imaging, David Hogg, has had a life-long passion for photography, and anything that flies — indeed, Horizon Imaging was born as a result of combining David’s interests of digital photography and building model aircraft.
Beginning way back in the early 2000s, this combination gave rise to numerous airborne contraptions of varying shapes and sizes, custom-built to carry digital cameras. These initial experiments sowed the seed of what would eventually become Horizon Imaging, a leading provider of aerial and ground-level imaging services in the South of the UK.
David’s photographic roots were put down during years of membership with local photographic clubs, and through submitting work for competitions, both locally and nationally. In 2014, David achieved his Licentiateship of the Royal Photographic Society — an achievement based on a panel of 10 photographs showcasing technical and aesthetic photographic skills across a wide range of environments and disciplines. Some of these 10 images are shown below.
Over the years, David has gained a reputation in the industry for his highly professional work ethic, an astute attention to detail and a drive to always improve the services he offers. David is the primary photographer at Horizon Imaging.

Our Core Strength — One Company, Multiple Disciplines
Initially, we only offered Drone Aerial Photography, but it soon became apparent that there were significant time and cost-saving benefits for our clients of working with a single company to provide all their photography and videography requirements.
As a result, within a few years of becoming established we introduced Architectural Photography, Mast Photography, Drone Aerial Filming, and Video Production services. In 2018 we began offering Matterport Virtual Tours, and in 2020 we started offering Time Lapse Filming.

Investing In The Latest Equipment
CAA Certification and Insurance
Horizon Imaging was one of the first 50 companies in the UK to be granted permission to use drones for commercial applications (we hold licence #46). Over 10,000 licenses have since been granted!
Since their introduction in 2010, Horizon Imaging has fully complied with the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) regulations governing the use of drones for commercial work.
Since the UK left the European Union in 2020, the drone regulations have been undergoing some considerable changes as the UK CAA has started making its own amendments to the regulations that were otherwise almost identical across Europe. These changes are currently happening at least on a yearly basis, and sometimes even more frequently than that.
Here at Horizon Imaging we have always kept up-to-date with the latest changes in regulations which govern where we can legally fly our drones, and as well as flying in the ‘Open’ category with drones that are lighter than 250 grams in weight, we also have an Operational Authorisation that allows us to fly heavier drones in congested areas.
Dedicated To Customer Satisfaction
The main reason our clients continue to use our services year after year, is that they love the work we produce for them!
Anyone who has worked with us will know that we have a keen eye for detail. This, combined with a continual drive to find new ways of improving the services we offer, means that when clients return to us, they will get at least the same, if not an improved level of service than when they first used us.
You can see a few of our client testimonials below, and over 100 more on our main Testimonials page.
“When David first introduced himself, he demonstrated his impressive work within the sector. I commissioned him as soon as possible for a project in Banstead, and I’ve been delighted from every perspective. His approach and processes from quotation, through how he undertook his work on site, to the simple methods used to identify the preferred images, has been thoroughly professional at every stage. The quality of the final photos is astounding, and has been voiced by all who’ve seen them. I’ve already commissioned David for a project in East Sussex completing next month, and I’d not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking top-end professional quality imagery.”
“David has just sent over our finished images, Matterport tour and video of our latest serviced apartment, which we use to advertise our short term rentals, so the photos need to look inviting, clean and fresh, as well as having a welcoming feel to them. I’m absolutely delighted with the results! The quality of the images is just wonderful and I’m completely happy with them. David is very easy to work with, with great attention to detail and is open to particular ideas and requests for items/set ups that we wanted included in the images, as well as taking on board our ideas when he created the final video and virtual tour. I have no hesitation in recommending David and look forward to working with him again on our next property.”
“I approached David because I was really impressed by the quality of his photography on his website. We wanted to capture our unique building and surroundings from some unique angles and through David we achieved just that. It was a pleasure working with David before, during and after the shoot and the images that he has captured are breath-taking. I would whole-heartedly recommend Horizon Imaging for outstanding aerial photography. I’m itching to find another reason to work with David ASAP.”
