Hovershotz Aerial Drone Photography are a vibrant, friendly CAA approved drone operator based in Cumbria. We use the latest professional drones providing broadcast quality video in up to 5.2K (in CinemaDNG & Apple ProRes codecs) and breathtaking images up to 20 mega pixels. We have over 4 years experience and offer very competitive pricing. Our pilot is BNUC-S qualified and also holds a diploma in photography & videography.
Hovershotz specialise in working with film crews in the Lake District providing drone filming. We also provide aerial drone photography and video services to a wide range of industries. Our drones and cameras are all of professional quality (such as the DJI Inspire 2). We have CAA permission (PFCO) to operate day or night. Our equipment is adapted to work in the Lake District – able to operate across the Lake District terrain and inclement weather. We operate a waterproof drone with hydrophobic lenses, meaning we are the only drone company who can operate 24/7 in any weather in the Lake District. Our chief pilot is an experienced Lake District fell walker and able to hike with the drone & equipment to the required location & film the optimum Lake District aerial drone shots.
We know the Lake District intimately and are based in the Lake District, which gives us the advantage of being able to liaise easily with the major Lake District landowners – The Forestry Commision, The National Trust, The National Park Authority & United Utilities to gain the necessary permissions to film with drones on or over their land. We can help with location scouting & permissions in the Lake District & Cumbria.
We formed in 2014 when we spotted a gap in the market for a professional aerial drone company in the Lake District that could both fly and operate a camera equally as well (unlike Hovershotz, very few drone operators are qualified as both drone pilots and aerial photographers). We gained BNUC-S flying qualifications, hold a diploma in photography and videography and gained a CAA PFCO (permission for commercial operation). We are constantly upgrading our drones to ensure we have the latest models to, so clients get the best possible footage.
Hovershotz are the leading & probably the most experienced aerial drone photography company based in Cumbria and operating within the English Lake District and have been operating since 2014.
Hovershotz specialise in aerial drone services (this could be filming video, stills photography, inspections or surveys) , utilising the latest state of the art professional unmanned aerial platforms (drones).
