Aerial Photography Specialists for surveys, architecture, promotion & more

Redcopters Ltd provides professional aerial photography services using unmanned drones (also called UAVs). Our multi-rotor helicopters allow Redcopters to shoot stunning  aerial  photographs and videos for industrial, survey, promotional and media use, at costs much lower than aerial photography from conventional aircraft, or from elevated platforms.

Redcopters’ expertise covers not just aerial photography, but also the photographic and film-making skills.

Redcopters was set up to focus on the end result – images, sequences and surveys that capture the key features of the subject.    We  undertake a very diverse range of photographic assignments, from photographing broken slates on inaccessible roofs, through promotional videos to providing an aerial record of one off events such as festivals.  We work with architectural design companies to create visualization images of buildings that haven’t even been constructed yet.  Not to mention working with the film, news and media industry.

We have completed a huge number of roof survey assignments across London, south east and elsewhere in UK. At the last count, we have photo-surveyed 10,000 properties! We work for property managers, local councils, surveyors and private owners. Our experience allows us to deliver the right set of photos, that tell the story logically, and don’t dump excessive numbers of anonymous images on an unlucky client.

Our pictures are high-resolution, shot in ‘raw’ and post-processed to give you clear, balanced jpgs that let you see the cracks, corrosion, the missing tiles, peeling leadwork and blocked gutters and boxes.

We pride ourselves on our professional approach to our flying and aerial photography. Our pilots, aircraft and operating procedures are licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority and we carry full third party insurance.
Based in London, Redcopters Ltd offers a responsive local service in London, the South East and the home counties, including East Anglia. We also operate throughout the UK as needed.
