What We Do
Skylark Aerial Photography uses the latest drone technology to provide the very best platform for still and video photography. The Dji Inspire, Dji Inspire Pro, 15mm, 20mm, and 45mm lenses, multiple battery packs.

The camera can be operated by a single skilled pilot or, if required an additional pilot to operate the camera for action video.

The drone can be flown up to a maximum of 400ft and up to 500 metres in line of sight. But most of the time distances are much shorter than this.

The Dji camera provides high definition photography and video. If required the camera can be used to track moving objects such as mountain bikes, runners or animals.

The drone can also be pre-programmed to carry out automated surveys, inspections or wildlife counts. By agreeing the optimum height, large areas can be surveyed or inspected with minimal disturbance to the environment; costs are reduced without compromising safety or quality.

Skylark Aerial Photography will carry out a full risk assessment prior to beginning any aerial work.

Should you require aerial photographs or survey taken from a higher altitude than 400ft or need to cover a larger area, then our partner Cumbria Gyroplanes operated by Andrew Lysser will be able to assist. Andrew a very experienced autogyro pilot and instructor operates from Carlisle Airport with his own autogyro. Skylark Aerial Photography often work with Cumbria Gyroplanes where high level and low level photography are required. Andrew also offers flying lessons or scenic rides, I can highly recommend these flights.
