Drone Services

Professional Drone Filming & Photography

Surrey Visuals uses Small Unmanned Aircraft (Drones) and handheld gimbals to achieve outstanding professional results in either photograph or video formats. The 4K HD quality ensures every detail is captured. Our Drones are licenced  fly up to 400ft (about 120 meters) above the ground, as well as ‘at height’ indoors. They can provide the perfect aerial platform to capture unique imagery and at a fraction of the cost where previously helicopter or fixed wing aircraft or scaffolding may have been used.

About Us

We are a  family business based in Walton on the Hill, Surrey, serving the local area and further afield.  Continuing his passion for ‘all thing airborne’ Mike, the Company Director, became a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) qualified drone pilot in 2015 and now has built up hundreds of flying hours. 

Surrey Visuals has flown in central London on many occasions and remains the aerial platform of choice for the Surrey Hills National Trust, The Royal Automobile Club and several schools in the Surrey area, to name a few clients.

What can Surrey Visuals offer?

Aerial Photography & Filming

Aerial filming and photography are the core services that we provide here at Surrey Visuals.  Whether it is a 100 acre estate or a simple marketing image to assist in a real estate sale – we can provide free advice as to the best option(s) for you, within your budget.

 

Every potential project (job) will be risk assessed for feasability, a site survey completed and a firm quote provided after all details have been verified with the client.

 

Surrey Visuals is very flexible in its approach, can work at short notice or change dates according to weather impact at no additional costs.

3D Modelling

Click on the above, scroll and move your mouse about to explore this Abbey in South East England. Captured by taking hundreds of images and stitching them together in a 360º geo space.  Labels can be added to provide additional information or select a number to show a pre-set view point.

Before and after mapping

Very simple and cheap way of keeping an eye of a progressing project.  An area / project can be mapped before works start, during the work to assess progress and then at completion.

Below you will see an area of the Surrey Hills, mapped for the National Trust to show elevation data that is not captured on the ‘before’ image..

Aerial Virtual Tours

Aerial and ground 360º virtual tours are a superb way of marketing a property or commercial enterprise.  They are extremely interactive, with the client having direct access to the content, so they ensure it is always up to date.  Click on the below (best viewed in full screen view the 3 dot menu) and move around the image, then simply click on another image within the frame and virtual ‘fly’ to that location.  There are no limits in respect of geographic areas.  If you owned a chain of hotels throughout Europe these couple be captured on one ‘tour’…. The possibilities are simple endless.  This example is of Stanhill Court Hotel near Gatwick Airport.

Before and After Mapping

Before and after mapping can also be used to ensure large scale projects are on track when it can be difficult to access the areas through rough terrain etc. Mapping an acre can take a matter of minutes once set up to fly – this remains the most cost effective way to cover vast areas.

Once the mapping takes place a report is generated according to the client’s needs, providing images, maps and other data as requested (i.e. elevation keys etc.)

Thermal inspections

Roof or other structual surveys now do not rely on just visual inspections.  At Surrey Visuals we are able to provide you with Thermal Images / Video so our clients are able to ‘see’ where heat loss may be occuring. Excellent tool for post insulation projects and also solar panel inspections.

 

Surrey Visuals Example Projects

V&A Logo

Victoria & Albert Museum

Surrey Visuals were commissioned to undertake aerial filming of the new Exhibition Road entrance of the V&A Museum, central London.  The entrance  was  formally opened by the Duchess of Cambridge and this footage was shown to the Duchess when she ‘cut the ribbon’ at the opening.  Surrey Visuals have a close working relationship with the V&A having previously filmed the famous Pink Floyd flying Pink Pig at the opening of their ‘Their Mortal Remains’ exhibition and also filmed for the BBC to cover the documentary series ‘Secrets of the Museum’.

The story

Drone flying in central London does not come without challenges! Add to the somewhat congested environment and the fact that the V&A is on  Heathrow Airport’s final approach this was a very detailed planning process…

For this project Surrey Visuals worked with the Civil Aviation Authority, London Heliport, LHR and the Met Police to ensure all flights were legal and most importantly safe. Thanks to all of those agencies and also my extended team on the day, and finally to the V&A who ultimately provided the permission to fly within their boundaries.
