Hi, thanks for stopping by. My name is Neil and I am a Hybrid Shooter.

From both on the Ground & from up in the Air I can capture the unique photos & video you need

to cherish forever or even to help get your promotion off the ground.

For my drone I am 'licensed' approved by the Civil Aviation Authority – CAA OA Number: 6584.

This means I have been granted an Operational Authorisation, I have gone through the training and testing, and I have commercial public liability insurance.

I have over 5 years’ experience and I have worked capturing media all over East Anglia, varying from weddings, corporate, promotional and portraits.

I am grateful to be a finalist in the Thetford Calendar Competition for 5 years in a row now. With a total of 21 photos in the 2019, 20, 21, 22 and 2023 calendars.

I have worked for lots of local private bookings, events and companies including:
