Hovershotz – We use drones to photograph, film, survey and inspect anything that needs viewing from the air, either during the day or at night.
Hovershotz are the leading & most experienced aerial drone imaging company based in Cumbria within the English Lake District. We hold full CAA permission for commercial operation (PFCO) in the UK to operate during the day or at night. It is a criminal offence to use a drone for paid work without valid CAA permission and commercial insurance.
As a full service drone company, we harness drone technology to solve your business problems and create professional photographs, images & videos.
Hovershotz specialise in aerial drone services (that could be filming video, stills photography, inspections or surveys) , utilising the latest state of the art professional unmanned aerial platforms (drones). We operate across the North of England (Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire, County Durham) and South West Scotland. Our pilots are fully BNUC-S qualified and are also trained camera operators.

Being Cumbrian and native to the the Lake District, Hovershotz know the Lake District terrain intimately and our equipment is suited to filming in this challenging environment. We are quite happy to carry the drones and associated equipment in tailored backpacks and hike across the Lake District terrain with the film crew to capture the perfect shots and footage.
Based in the Lake District, gives us the advantage of being able to liaise easily with both the National Trust and The National Park Authority to gain the necessary permissions to film with drones on their land. Hovershotz have also work regularly directly for the National Trust.
Hovershotz are able to help with location scouting for any aerial drone filming or photography projects within Cumbria, Lancashire & the Lake District.
Unlike many of our competitors, Hovershotz are not only qualified drone pilots, but also professional photographers and videographers – before hiring another drone operator, ask if they are also a formally qualified photographer or videographer (you would be surprised at how many cowboy drone operators buy a drone, train as drone pilots and gain CAA permission for aerial work but have no real idea how to film or photograph professionally – our advice is don’t hire a drone operator unless they also hold formal photography, filming and videography qualifications).
Hovershotz are one of the few UK drone operators who are experienced and comfortable in operating and filming over water & at night.
Hovershotz are an official drone supplier & contractor for the BBC (supplier No 1161710), ITV & ITN (supplier No 117136090). We are also registered on the National Trust Procatis portal.
