Using Jet Ranger, Long Ranger, R44 & EC355 helicopters we are able to react quickly to clients' requirements. With over 28 years as a specialist aerial photographer and 14 years as an aerial cameraman and DoP, Peter Smith covers corporate, news, documentary, construction and environmental projects. Based near York in North Yorkshire we cover the UK and work in Europe with strategic partners. We are able to plan, project manage, shoot and edit video on DigiBeta. The majority of video work is shot on 5-axis gyro stabilized UltraMedia 11 and Wescam 16 cameras recording straight to DigiBeta.
A large proportion of our work is environmental; we are on contract to the Environment Agency and supply still aerial images and aerial video during times of flooding as well as normal requirements. We have a large database of still aerial images from flood events in Northern England from 2000 to the present day covering rivers Ouse, Wharfe, Derwent, Aire, Don, Rother, Swale, Calder, Dearne mostly available under license. Recent work is of York, Doncaster, Sheffield, Toll Bar, Bentley, Rotherham and covers the 2007 & 2008 flood events.
TV credits include: Chopper Coppers, Tonight with Trevor McDonald, James Martin Digs Deep and many BBC TV News aerial inserts.
