Airview Aerial Photography delivers high resolution still photography through custom photoshoots using fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs or drones). Aerial stills are applicable to a wide variety of industries, uses and formats. Please look at our galleries and our industries page for lots of photos and applications for particular industries.
How we work
When we fly, we utilise the best flight asset for the job. Sometimes we use fixed wing planes to be able to shoot a large number of sites in one day or for sites that are further away. We use helicopters when we have a number of sites to do within a smaller area, when we need to shoot from a number of angles, or for when we do levels for construction. We also use a helicopter almost exclusively for city based sites, as it allows us enter restricted airspace to obtain the photos.
We use only the best and latest cameras available to capture stunning digital images. We shoot high-resolution stills on a Canon 5D Mark III, which provides up to 22.3 MegaPixels of resolution. Our lenses are the highest quality Canon L-Series for superior image quality.
editing and archiving
We can edit your images to suit your particular needs. We have significant experience editing photos for most industries, so we can meet your needs, whatever they are.
WEATHER, TIMING AND DELIVERY
The quality of our aerial photography is our pride and passion, and we only give the best of the best to our clients. For this reason, our shoots are weather dependent. We need clear, sunny days to achieve the best result for you. Therefore, please give us as much notice as possible for a custom photo shoot. 7-10 days will allow us to select the clearest day to ensure the best results for your photographs. For urgent shoots where less than 48hrs notice is given and/or if we have to fly for your job only, then urgent prices will apply and we will quote you this. Plenty of notice allows us to group multiple jobs per shoot, enabling us to keep our prices affordable. We aim to deliver images the next business day following your shoot. However some limitations do apply, such as large sites that have many more images that normal, and may take longer to process and edit.
HOW TO GET STARTED WITH AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY
Filling in the form below will enable us to respond to you quickly and make sure we can schedule your photography shoot for when you need it. Please only use this form if you’re interested in booking an aerial photography shoot or would like more information about aerial photography, including a quote for your custom shoot. If you would like to contact us generally, please use the form on our contact us page.
Airview’s pricing for aerial photography is based on many factors, including aircraft costs, distance to the site, urgency of the shoot, complexity of the shoot, time of day, and time required over the site. To accurately quote on your job, we require the following information:
– the address of the property or site, and it’s approximate size (area)
– any specific shots you require, eg vertical view (straight down), close ups on particular areas or features, shots showing proximity to specific places – the CBD, the beach, the freeway off ramp etc.
– your deadline for delivery of the photos
– whether you require perfect weather, or can use shots taken on a less-than-perfect day
– if you want the shots edited and how much editing you require
All of these variables can affect the time required to obtain your shots, and therefore the price of the shoot. As each new job will require an individual quotation, please provide us with much information about your requirements as possible, so that we can be sure we quote an accurate and valuable price. We offer package discounts for multiple sites, or for regular shoots.
A standard shoot will always include 8-10 high resolution images of the site. We can provide more shots if the site is very large. We provide a range of different shots for each shoot. We operate across Australia in metropolitan, regional and rural areas. In these areas we do not have a standard price, and will quote you for each job so that you are getting the best value for what you want to accomplish. Further to this, Airview operates internationally and can quote and organise your aerial photography needs efficiently and professionally. If there is anything you need that you don’t see here, please contact us on our contact page or using the form above for a quote.
