Elevate your client’s vision: Co-creating with clients and creative agencies on drone photography projects

For clients and creative agencies, delivering on projects to create aerial photography and videography is something that is often outsourced. Commissioning a drone specialist to collaborate with is key to the success of the project. 

I absolutely love the diversity of projects that I get to be part of with clients and creative agencies.  

At the heart of my approach to drone photography and videography projects lies a commitment to co-creation. This involves a beginner's mindset, and unwavering curiosity to understand the unique visions and values of each client.

With over 15 years of photography experience under my belt, I've cultivated a portfolio that offers a rare blend of capturing powerful images of people, as well as diverse experience capturing wildlife, landscapes, interiors and architecture. My lens doesn't just capture scenes from the ground but also from the sky! And of course underwater, weaving together narratives that transcend the ordinary into the extraordinary.

What sets my approach apart? The energy I bring to holding space for candid moments, while also offering gentle direction when needed. My innate connection to light, seasonality, the elements, and the ever-changing tides allows me to anticipate and seize profound moments as they unfold, ensuring each frame tells a story. 

How long have you been flying drones for? 

With 8 years of experience flying drones for a variety of projects, I've honed my skills in the air and blend this with collaboration, teamwork, and meticulous planning. From securing permits and permissions to mapping out flight plans that optimise lighting conditions. Every detail is thoughtfully considered to ensure the final images align seamlessly with the client's vision.

What do you love about flying drones? 

Whether it's navigating the intricacies of flying bustling urban areas or exploring the tranquil landscapes of remote wilderness, each location presents its own set of challenges and opportunities. From large-scale national campaigns captured in city centres to capturing the rugged beauty of Scotland's Highlands and Islands, no terrain is too daunting, no vision too ambitious.

There's a magic that ignites within me every time I take flight with my drone. It's a magic that transcends the ordinary, soaring beyond the confines of the everyday world. For me, flying drones isn't just about capturing breathtaking aerial footage; it's about experiencing the world from a perspective that few ever get to witness. A perspective that is both humbling and awe-inspiring. 

It is this that makes drone images a powerful tool in marketing, because they tap into the viewers imagination. This perspective has the capacity to unlock the truest expression of freedom — a freedom that knows no bounds. One that can be a really powerful narrative to use to support clients and creative agencies on campaigns.

Drone photography and videography offers infinite possibilities for creative client campaigns

What I love most about flying drones is the opportunity to see the world through a lens of infinite possibility. From the moment my drone takes to the skies, I'm transported to a realm where the boundaries between earth and sky blur. Where the familiar becomes extraordinary, and where the mundane is transformed into the extraordinary.

But it's not just the bird's-eye view that captivates me... It's the way in which drones allow me to explore the liminal spaces between land and sea, where the elements collide and nature paints its most organic artistry. As I hover above rugged coastlines, I witness the ebb and flow of the tide... The dance of light and shadow... And the ever-changing tapestry of colours that adorn the foreshore.

Aerial and drone photography offer unique storytelling and perspectives of connection

Flying drones allows me to become a storyteller... A conduit through which the beauty of the natural world can be shared and celebrated. With every frame captured, I strive to convey the wonder, the majesty, and the raw, unbridled power of the world around us. Through my lens, I seek to inspire others to see the world with fresh eyes—to embrace the unknown, to savour the fleeting, and to cherish the moments that take our breath away.

In a world that often feels divided, disconnected, and disenchanted, drones offer a glimpse of unity. They show us our shared humanity and our interconnectedness with the world around us. Reminding us that we are but small specks in a vast and wondrous universe... A universe that beckons us to explore, to discover... To marvel at the wonders that lie just beyond the horizon.

I’ve flown my drones from mountain tops and across the sea

As I journey across the UK and Europe, fueled by a love for adventure and a deep awe of the natural world, I am reminded of the privilege it is to bear witness to moments of breathtaking beauty.

What truly fuels my passion is the opportunity to immerse myself in the raw beauty of nature. To traverse subzero temperatures in pursuit of the perfect shot. To embrace the untamed wilderness as my playground.
My drone work has graced the pages of international publications and I’ve been interviewed by  National Geographic about travelling with drones and Times Radio on a feature ‘odd job’ delving into weird and wonderful careers! I am passionate too about supporting women to get into flying drones. So much so that I co-founded a community ‘The UK female drone collective’ - creating supportive space for women who fly drones or are interested in starting out.

4. Smooth Production Process:

I am committed to obtaining all necessary permissions to ensure a seamless production experience. Whether it's your first drone project or you're a seasoned pro, I guide you through the process with clarity and expertise, managing expectations within CAA rules and regulations.

5. Beginner's Mindset, Creative Fire:

I come to every project with a beginner's mindset and a curiosity that fuels my creativity. No challenge is too daunting, no vision too ambitious. I thrive on pushing boundaries and exploring new possibilities in aerial storytelling.

In collaboration, we soar

Together, let's embark on a journey of discovery and creativity. From urban landscapes to remote wilderness, from dawn till dusk, let's capture the essence of your vision from every angle, every altitude. With me as your collaborator, the sky is not the limit—it's just the beginning.

I firmly believe that in collaboration, we soar. In creativity, we thrive. And in every frame captured, we discover the boundless beauty of the world around us.

    Penyebab paling umum dari gagal ginjal adalah diabetes dan tekanan darah tinggi. Namun, terkadang gagal ginjal terjadi dengan cepat karena penyebab yang tidak terduga. Dengan begitu, batu akan lebih mudah dikeluarkan melalui urine. Obat ini berfungsi untuk melemaskan otot-otot di saluran kemih agar batu lebih mudah dikeluarkan dari dalam tubuh. Ada berbagai jenis obat kencing batu. Batu tersebut dapat terbentuk di ginjal, saluran kemih, atau kandung kemih. Pencegahan kolitis ulseratif dapat dilakukan dengan mengonsumsi minyak zaitun. Dengan begitu, obat pun dapat bekerja dengan maksimal. Beberapa jenis teknik operasi yang dapat dilakukan untuk mengatasi kencing batu adalah percutaneous nephrolithotomy atau percutaneous nephrolithotripsy. Prosedur ini dilakukan menggunakan gelombang suara berenergi tinggi untuk memecah batu menjadi potongan-potongan kecil. 3. Tatanan di Tempat Kerja, hampir sama dengan tatanan di institusi pendidikan, tatanan ini mengharuskan sasaran untuk pengadaan akses air bersih (untuk minum, makan, dan cuci tangan dengan sabun di air mengalir), pengadaan jamban sehat, pembuangan sampah pada tempat sampah, pemberantasan jentik nyamuk, tidak menggunakan Narkotika, Alkohol, Psikotropika, dan Zat Adiktif serta tidak merokok, dan pemberian makanan bergizi seimbang di tempat kerja.
