Upshot Photos is run by Jamie – a creative designer with a passion for photography. With a huge amount of experience in creative digital arts (more than 25 years), Jamie specialises in getting the best from digital photography using a wide range of visual and software skills to get the best from the images taken by small unmanned aerial systems (SUAS). We’ve all heard the phrase ‘all the gear but no idea‘ so just remember when choosing an aerial imaging company that it’s one thing to own and to be able to operate a drone, but getting the best results from the images is another skill set that requires a creative eye.
