Often there are requirements for images from higher than the mast can reach, but requiring detail unobtainable from full-size aircraft due to air traffic restrictions. This is where the kite comes into its own for heights of between 13 and 120 metres. A customised camera mount is suspended from the kite line, approximately 20 metres below the kite. Self-levelling suspension ensures the camera remains horizontally level, while remote control equipment controls camera tilt and shutter, with the operator guided by the inbuilt video downlink to the groundstation. It is even possible, in some locations, to use this technology by towing the kite behind a boat, even if there is no wind to support the kite.

Elevated photography

To succeed, a photograph has to capture the attention of the viewer. Capturing the image from an unusual viewpoint such as up to 13 metres above ground catches your eye. As a bonus, it also avoids unsightly obstacles getting in the way of the view.

Aerial photography

Unlike satellite images, which take on a passive map-like appearance, often with old imagery, I can create up-to-date oblique images, and then add notations etc to get your message across. Great for construction progress reports for clients and financiers etc.
