Why use Upshot Photos?

We specialise in high-quality aerial photography and video with quick turnaround — but that doesn’t mean we cut corners.

Our aerial photography drones are extremely powerful but extremely compact which means less setup time and less to go wrong than some equipment which can be more bulky, more time consuming and more complicated to operate.

There’s a lot of companies out there using increasingly sophisticated and expensive equipment which, in many cases, can be like using a sledgehammer to crack a wall nut.

Just be careful you don’t end up over paying towards somebody’s expensive hobby equipment.
