15+ Years of Experience

David Hogg
Director, Horizon Imaging Ltd

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.

By choosing Horizon Imaging, you will be working with an established, professional provider of photography and videography services with over a decade of experience in delighting their clients. 

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 Videography, and Video Production services. In 2018 we began offering Matterport Virtual Tours, and in 2020 we started offering Time Lapse Filming.

Benefits of using a single provider?

There are numerous advantages of using a single provider to handle all imaging requirements — some of which include: 
For companies in the property industry who rely heavily on imagery as part of their business activities (for example, architects, estate agents and interior designers) consistent and repeatable image style is essential. Using a single provider ensures imagery is consistent as it is:
By choosing Horizon Imaging, you will save time, money and hassle compared to shopping around for multiple providers. You can also be sure that all the imagery you receive will have the same professional quality. 

Investing In The Latest Equipment

We spend a large proportion of our turnover investing in the latest equipment to deliver even better imagery for our clients. The image above shows a small selection of the equipment we use … unfortunately we were unable to get our 6, 9 and 15 metre telescopic masts into this shot! 
 
Whilst it’s certainly true that there is considerably more to professional photography than buying an expensive camera, on the flip side, there is a reason that professional camera equipment is so expensive. Professional camera equipment delivers:
By choosing Horizon Imaging, you can be sure the imagery we capture for your projects will always meet, and will most likely exceed, your requirements for image quality.

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.

By choosing Horizon Imaging, you can be sure you are working with a competent, experienced and professional drone operator who has over a decade of commercial experience flying drones in a wide range of environments.

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.

“David provided an easy-to-use, professional service providing us with both static images and an edited video of our completed project. David kept us informed throughout and sorted out all the necessary permissions and access to the site and adjacent plots (to fly over). We’d highly recommend both his work and his services and we look forward to our next project with Horizon Imaging.”

“We have use Horizon Imaging a few times now and we are very happy with the results. We had drone images and ground level as well. The clarity and composition of the photos is amazing. David really has an eye for this and we are more than happy to recommend him. He is now our only professional photographer and hope we will do many landscape projects together.”

“Working with David was a pleasure at each and every stage. He took and understood the brief, prepared a clear quotation describing exactly his service. He liaised with our client to arrange the photo shoot. His demeanour and professionalism portrayed the same values and attention to detail that echoed our own. The images were turned around efficiently and conveyed through an excellent web based selection tool. Once reviewed the preferred images were professionally modified to produce the most refined product. These were then made available via the web portal for high resolution download. An excellent, swift easy to use service from start to finish. We will definitely be using Horizon Imaging again.”

Satisfaction Guarantee

Our motto is that we are only happy once our clients are delighted with the imagery we have produced for them. If for some reason a client is not satisfied, we will work closely with them to address the issue, even if it means re-doing the entire shoot at our own cost. 

We call this our 100% Delighted Guarantee!

We can only offer this guarantee because we are so confident in the services we offer. During our 10+ years of trading, we have never had to re-do a shoot because a client was unhappy with their imagery, and we intend to keep it that way! 
By choosing Horizon Imaging, you will be working alongside a company that shares the same expectation of quality as you.
