About Us


Telford Photography holds a A2 CofC Certificate issued by the Civil Aviation Authority.  All flights are conducted in accordance with the Air Navigation Order and we are fully insured for commercial aerial work.

It is illegal to operate commercial drone flights without (EC) 785/2004 compliant drone insurance. 

Flight Safety

Safety is our prime consideration for all flights. We undertake a series of procedures to ensure each flight can be conducted without risk to persons or property. These include risk assessments, site surveys, pre flight checks etc. During the flight our trained observers will ensure members of the public are kept at a safe distance from the area of operation.

What can we do

Our aircraft can stay airborne for 20+ minutes – we normally operate several flights for each project. It is capable of taking 4k / HD video and 12 megapixel photographs. We can switch between video & photo during flight.

We can fly over, around and close to properties subject to the rules below.

Most rural properties are suitable for drone photography. Flying in towns or ‘congested areas’ is a bit more restricted but is possible in certain circumstances.

Drone operation in the UK is governed by a strict set of rules under the Air Navigation Order. of which we are allowed to fly:

  • We are exempt from the normal 150m separation rule from congested areas (all drones under 2kg)
  • We are able to fly with zero separation from uninvolved people
  • We are able to over fly uninvolved people

All drone pilots, both professional and amateur, must abide by these rules. Failure to do so can lead to a criminal prosecution.

Post flight – photo editing

Basic photo processing is included in the cost. We can also create panorama type images if required (a series of photos stitched together). See our photo gallery for examples.
