Drone photography is able to capture images from a wide range of angles and heights. One advantage of the drone is that it can operate in locations where the van-based mast cannot, such as in the middle of a field, and it can operate to a maximum height of 400ft compared to 90ft with the mast.

However, there are strict rules about where the drone cannot fly, such as over or near a stadium full of people or near airports. Permissions may also have to be obtained before flying over or near a built-up area.

The flexibility of the drone is excellent, however there are strict guidelines about where it can and more importantly where it cannot not be flown. All Sky High Camera pilots have completed the relevant CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) approved qualifications, received a licence to operate from the CAA, and also have all the necessary insurance in place, means that any flights carried out are in accordance with the current CAA rules and guidelines as well as industry best practice. The addition of a drone to the toolbox of Sky High Camera has enabled the team to reach locations which the normal van and mast system would sometimes struggle with. One of the key benefits of drone photography is that it fills the important gap above 90ft that the mast reaches, yet is lower than the 2000ft that traditional aerial photography operates at, and as a result can give stunning views of surrounding nearby amenities that mast photography is not high enough to capture.
