How is drone photography useful?

Drone Aerial Photography and Video is widely in use by the team at Lensmen. Cameras affixed to a drone offer sky to ground images once only available from helicopter or fixed wing aircraft fly pasts, creating noise and disturbance to the the project subject area and surroundings. The scope and flexibility of environmentally friendly drone aerial photography and video is truly eye opening.

Ultra-smooth images from the air, exterior, and interior can be viewed from the ground as realtime footage, meaning during the flight of the drone. The controller of the drone, often known as the pilot operates/flies the drone in a designated operating zone, usually having being granted the required permission from the regulatory authority, in Ireland the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA).

Working with our clients

  • For internal filming, permission, and cooperation is sought from the client or subcontractor before a drone is launched. After discussion with a client project manager or owner, timing, camera angles, and framing of the video or photographic shoot can be set in motion and the assignment can literally take off. Lensmen combine photography, film, drone aerial views, video and time-lapse to create vibrant compelling well crafted visuals for major construction companies, property owners & estate agencies, global brands, government departments, semi-state bodies and SME’s across Ireland.
  • Lensmen comply with and meet all required H&S Regulations. All our staff hold safe passes and are responsible for ensuring H&S standards are applied by all our staff to ensure the safety of all those on site during a project.
