Real estate aerial photograph

House / Real Estate Photography

Fancy a nice aerial photograph of your home or business? Whether to help sell your house or as a nice piece of artwork for inside your home, a birds-eye view from a drone is the way to go!

A good aerial photograph of a house for sale can have such a massive impact on it’s visibility and engagement on property websites. If you are an estate agent or are selling your home privately, get in touch to arrange an aerial shoot of the property for a very reasonable price. An aerial photograph can add so much interest to your listing and even increase saleability and value., so the value returned nearly always outweighs the cost.

Even a private drone photoshoot is much cheaper than traditional fixed-wing or helicopter services. The value of clicks on your listing on property and real estate websites makes the initial investment pay dividends.

There are some restrictions to flying drones, but with proper planning and permissions and by using approved pilots (such as myself), most shots should be possible. Give me a call or send me an email using the form below so we can discuss.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I only want one photo, is it cheaper?

    It can be, yes, but keep in mind that most of the work involved in a drone operation is in the planning and permissions phase – hours of planning could go into a 5-minute flight.

    If the one picture you wanted to get required no extra permissions but a shot from the rear of the property would – then it would certainly be cheaper to just go for shots from the “easier” angle. Generally though, if we have put the work into planning the flight for one photo, we would certainly take a variety of shots that you can use too at no extra charge while we are at it.

  • How much is an aerial photo of a house?

    Prices start from £199.

    However, it does depend on the location of the property – airspace restrictions and uninvolved persons in the flight area affects the price. The best bet is to contact me with the address of the property and I will give you an exact quote.

  • Can you fly at night?

    Yes! I have special procedures in my Operations Manual allowing flight at night. I have battery operated lighting to illuminate the landing zones.

  • What happens if the weather is bad?

    Drones are powered by electricity. Electricity and water do not mix! Unfortunately, we can not fly in wet conditions or high winds. The safety of everyone is my highest priority, so we either wait out the weather or postpone the operation.

    Exact details of weather clauses will be outlined before we sign a contract, but it’s all very fair stuff – we all accept that the weather in the UK is unpredictable!

  • Where are you based?

    I am based in Manchester, UK but often travel all over the world with work.

    I don’t add silly per-mile charges for travel – I just charge my expenses and time travelling at a very fair rate.

    I can often be found flying a drone in Blackburn, Blackpool, Bolton, Bradford, Chesterfield, Huddersfield, Lake District, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, The Peak District, Preston, Sheffield, Warrington and the Yorkshire Dales.

    If you need a trained drone pilot anywhere in the UK, please get in contact.

  • Are you insured?

    Yes! I have a £1million Public Liability Insurance policy covering aerial operations.

  • I have a drone, why should I pay you?

    If you have the equipment and are legally permitted to fly the mission, then, by all means, do it yourself. It’s fun and rewarding! Just be aware of the local regulations and fly responsibly.

    However, currently in the UK, you need clearance from the Civil Aviation Authority and insurance if you fly a drone for commercial gain. If you don’t want to pay for all the CAA requirements, then book me instead! I have insurance and all the necessary training and certificates. Simple as that!
