mountain drone filming

I have been a CAA Approved Drone Pilot since 2014 and was one of the very first pilots to specialise in the challenge that is mountain drone filming. I have worked across the UK and the Alps as well as South America. 

“Amongst an emerging world of drone pilots where there are good, bad and chancers a plenty, Rob stands head and shoulders above all I have worked with. Not only his sheer professionalism, efficiency (in often uncompromising locations) and affable nature but also his mass of experience and ability in the outdoor/mountain world make him an easy recommendation.” Alastair Lee – Posing Productions
