Competitive Aerial Drone Photography Prices

Hovershotz Aerial Drone Photography, Video & Inspections offer, very competitive rates.

There are many variable factors and each job is unique. We operate a range of professional drones, which can be flown by one person or a two man team, depending on the clients requirements. Therefore, Hovershotz prefers to quote on an individual project basis, after having discussed or been fully briefed on the proposed project. There are a number of variables which may affect the quotation including the time of year (affecting our work load) location of shoot (travel costs and possible overnight stays), potential weather and other external shooting conditions, associated risk of taking the job on, requirements for additional CAA approvals and site visits. There is also a lot of preparation work required before we even turn up on site (surveys, risk assessments and completing the necessary paperwork to satisfy the CAA).

However, we appreciate that sometimes, visitors to our site may  just want a quick ballpark figure. Therefore as a quick guide, our “from” prices are as follows:

Potential use of videos and photos for Hovershotz PR and Showreels

We love what we do and are very proud of the work that we undertake and so naturally, actively look to promote our services. We will never publish any footage we shoot until our clients have released it. However, we do reserve the right to use ANY of our footage for internal promotion, whether this be inclusion on our showreel for PR purposes on our website, social media sites, newsletters or brochures to promote Hovershotz.

If this is going to be a problem, we would ask you to kindly speak with us before any commencement of filming.
