Esprit Drone Services

CAA Operational Authorisation with EC 785/2004 Public Liability Insurance

At Esprit Drone Services we offer aerial surveying, videography & photography. We are unique in that our background and experience is decades of video production, photography and also manned flying. This means we can service your media requirements end-to-end with both ground and aerial footage and video production/editing.

Working between 0 and 120m/400ft we can capture unique views without the expense of a helicopter or crane and in a much safer environment and without the access problems traditional methods suffer from.

Quicker, safer, cheaper are our goals with all of our clients.

All work carried out is carried out with RAMS and PLI in place and in accordance with CAA Operation Authorisation (UAS-6599) requirements. Pre-flight surveys and risk assessments take the guessing out of safety which is our number one priority for our operations.

With our rapid post-production workflow, we can turn around your job at the pace you require, ensuring you get the media you need in the minimum of time.

Rest assured of a professional service from the first call.

    5 star review  Esprit Drone Services were fast and efficient at capturing our roof to check for signs of wear and tear. Being a double pitched roof we could not access the middle section and to have a good clean visual of what we could not see was really beneficial to monitor tile movement and quality of the chimney systems here in such an old building. Whatever the job would thoroughly recommend.

    5 star review  We needed new content for our website. Once introduced to Andy he was happy to discuss what I wanted at length and add his own suggestions. Thoroughly professional in his approach and execution of the filming. He is fully licensed so makes minimum impact when flying the camera drone. With that, and his ground based filming, produced a stunning promotional video with the "wow" factor.

  • 5 star review  When the building company I work for needed pictures of our sites, Esprit Drone Services were able to provide excellent aerial, external and internal images. This company undertake their projects with great professionalism and efficiency, and their photographer, Andy Betts, is a resourceful and approachable specialist. I would not have any problem in recommending Esprit Drone Services.

    thumb Alexander Brake

    5 star review  Really helpful and excellent service received. We used Esprit Drone Services to film our school facilities during lockdown and are so thrilled with the result. Really professional and friendly, we felt very comfortable with the Drone Pilot we had who couldn't have been more attentive to what we wanted. Our video is now on the school website and has resulted in much more interest. Highly recommended!!

    5 star review  Positive: Professionalism ,  Quality ,  Responsiveness ,  Value The scope of our project with Esprit is very large, but it has been handled extremely competently and succinctly. Our video looks amazing, and the turnaround was so quick as well. Andy had really helpful ideas for the video too. The end result looked exactly as I was envisioning it.
