I have just completed and uploaded a project for Whitehaven Golf Club which involved filming on three days to create flyover videos of all 18 holes, plus the production of a promotional film of the facilities at the club. Above you will find a playlist that includes all 19 films. A big thank you to Andrew Morton and the others who provided help and support during my visits.
This is my most recently completed project, and again it is a film combining aerial and regular video. It was commissioned by John O’Neill for Morecambe BID (Business Improvement District) and the video can be viewed above. The film was posted on Facebook yesterday and I am amazed that 24 hours later it had been viewed 15,491 times, shared 304 times, with 28 comments and 118 likes. I was really bowled over by so many of the positive comments about both Morecambe and my film (there are lots more comments on the shares) and I really hope Morecambe BID are pleased with the response. There is a 30 second version over on Twitter (@MorecambeBID) and I took lots of aerial photographs too, so when I get a moment I will put everything together within my projects page in the gallery. I will also provide an update on the Facebook response later in the week.
The “and finally” article on the ITV News at 6.30pm today (and possibly 10.30pm) features some drone footage from Aerial Artwork, shot this morning on the path up to the Old Man of Coniston. It complements a fantastic story so please watch, and share. It was a pleasure to contribute to this report. Thank you!
Above is an updated version of my video created for Ross Bay Retreat (rossbayretreat.com) in Dumfries & Galloway twenty months ago. We really enjoyed our stay there and if you like the idea of staying in a Scottish holiday cottage that looks directly out onto the sea then I would certainly encourage you to have a look at their website.
In the intervening months I feel I have learnt so much more about video editing and filmmaking. Although I am proud of the original I do think that this new film is an improvement on it for a number of technical and aesthetic reasons.
It was great to have my services requested by ITV this week. Yesterday I went to a well known local tourist attraction to capture some footage for a piece that was being created for This Morning. I was due to also do a little aerial filming of a certain celebrity but unfortunately he called in sick on the day! When I know when it is going to be used and aired on TV I will post details.
Stuart Bastik and Maddi Nicholson of Art Gene commissioned Aerial Artwork to produce a film to document their impressive and newly installed war memorial “One For Sorrow…” at North Walney. The challenge to capture the mood and unique location of the work was one to which I really enjoyed responding. I know Stuart and Maddi are pleased with the end result and I hope you enjoy it too. Although it takes a little longer to load up I would recommend watching it in 1080p (Full HD).
I would urge you to read all about the artwork on the Art Gene website by clicking on the link in red here:

Here are the very satisfying results of many months of planning, capturing and editing through the summer and autumn of 2016. These eight promotional videos feature aerial footage that attempt to do justice to these stunning properties available to book as holiday homes at http://www.therowleyestates.com. It was a big challenge to put these together to effectively show the properties in the context of their surroundings, but I hope viewers feel I have gone at least some way to achieving this. A collection of photographs were completed for each property too, some of which can be seen below.
Every visitor to my website is of course equally important, but everyone likes round numbers and so I am pleased to announce this latest milestone!
Perhaps the more significant thing is that visitor numbers have been steadily increasing since I launched my new website. I have endeavoured to document and present the work I have completed as clearly and thoroughly as possible. I have enjoyed doing this and I hope you enjoy viewing it.
Of course, if you like what you see and feel you could make use of my services, I would be delighted to provide you with a quote.
May I invite you to visit my recently upgraded website! I am so pleased with the beautiful clean layout, and I have worked hard to make it as easy as possible to navigate. The new site features direct links to all my most successful projects, and the many testimonials from satisfied clients. If you are looking for aerial photography or video for your business, please get in touch if you like what you see here. I operate my drone for filmmaking and photography throughout Cumbria, the Lake District and the North West.
