In Britain, we are always at the mercy of the weather and especially so with aerial photography, but usually commissions can be completed within one to four weeks. If a commission is urgent or becomes urgent, please do get in touch and every effort will be made to help, but be advised that the quality of the results may not be as good, as can usually be.

For good, high quality aerial photography, it is very important that the photographs are taken under ideal conditions. This means consistent strong sunshine [not a few gaps in the clouds!], good visibility [the weather can be nice and sunny, but frequently quite hazy - not good!] with little or no wind [windy days make it very difficult to hold a long lens steady when you are being buffeted around inside a light aircraft!]. All these factors can affect the sharpness, clarity and contrast of aerial photographs and therefore it is worth waiting to get the right conditions.

Nowadays, all aerial photography is undertaken using digital cameras. Currently, the 30 megapixel Canon 5D mk4 is the camera of choice for hand-held work. This provides a 88MB TIFF file or a 30MB JPEG file with minimum compression. Combined with Canon "L" series lenses, this provides excellent resolution and definition, especially for giant enlargements. For drone photography and filming, a 20 megapixel Sony CCD based camera is used for high resolution stills and HD1080P or 4K video work.
