Reach for the Skies! – Aerial 360° photography

Aerial 360° Panoramic Photography | Ireland & Northern Ireland

2015 will see us getting out and about with a new perspective…

#360photos taken from the air!

Meet the latest addition to our 360° photography arsenal.

We’ve been experimenting with this custom built piece of technology for some months now. It has a few names; Drone, UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), Multicopter. Ours is also known as an Octo-copter due to it having 8 rotors.

Following many months of research, flight tests and written examinations, we are now qualified, certified and approved by both the UK (CAA) and Irish (IAA) Aviation Authority.

Being able to fly where traditional helicopters cannot coupled with our love of 360° photos we think will allow us to give you a unique and immersive aerial perspective of some of Ireland’s amazing landmarks, buildings and landscapes.  There is so much more you can see from 200ft in the air!

Check out this Aerial 360° Photograph captured above East Belfast.

In the distance you can see Belfast’s famous Harland & Wolff shipyard with their striking yellow gantry cranes. Within the 360° aerial photograph there are areas identified by clickable hotspots.


Our professional flying camera rigs can offer a perspective that will amaze and captivate without the expense of a full size helicopter.

Quick and easy to deploy, these platforms are amazingly stable and very adaptable; it takes less than 10 minutes to rig the drone and have it in the air. This is also a very eco-friendly alternative as our carbon footprint is thousands of times less than using a full scale manned chopper thanks to the electric driven motors.

We can see many uses for our UAV Aerial 360° photography. From Architecture to Construction, Surveys and Sporting events, Golf Courses and close up inspections, to marketing as well as TV and filming production. The list is almost endless.

The historic centre of Hillsborough Village in County Down is noted for its stunning architecture and olde-worlde charm.  At the top of the Georgian Main Street sits Hillsborough Castle, the official residence of the Royal Family when they are in Northern Ireland

  1. Hello, your work is very impressive. Congratulations! I probably cannot afford your services, but let me at least ask. I have been doing some genealogical research on a small island off Dungloe where the O’donnells in my family originated before emigrating to the US in the 1860’s. I wonder what it would cost to film the island and ruins of the remaining 7 or 8 houses. Please give me an idea of the cost. Perhaps genealogical researchers abroad might be a new market for you. Thank you for any information you can provide.

Downpatrick Town

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
