Frequently asked questions
What is your response to the COVID-19 Pandemic?
I take every precaution possible to protect against the virus. My aerial work doesn't usually require close contact with people, so maintaining social distancing is not a challenge. I carry sanitiser with me at all times and wear a face mask in busier areas. I work remotely when video editing and all client contact will be done digitally. If you have any special requests for extra precautions please let me know and I'll do whatever I can to assist you.
Will you definitely be able to film what I want?
Most of the time the answer is yes. However, to fly legally and safely, there are rules that I must adhere to for everyone's safety. If something doesn't seem possible, I will always do my best to come up with a solution. Your best bet is for us to have a chat and work out what is doable.

How long will the edit take?
This of course depends on the scale and complexity of the project. I will always strive for a quick turnaround and will let you know once I have spoken to you about your requirements.
What information do you need from me for a drone shoot?
