Do you want to hire an experienced, professional drone company?

As with any high-quality camera crew, creating great aerial film and photography is more than just sticking a drone in the air.

At Skyhook, we practise the art of great camerawork. We can make the choices required to capture the best possible footage to suit the needs of your production.

Our experience on set means we can speak the director’s language, or talk technical when it comes to camera settings and codecs. We can also use our experience and knowledge of the drone’s abilities and regulations to suggest shots you might not have thought possible.

Therefore you can be confident that when hiring this drone team, the material we produce will meet the same high standards as the rest of your camera crew.

We have exceptional kit and safety procedures

We have invested in more than just our drone equipment and bring all the additional kit to ensure your shoot goes smoothly. With our vehicle’s onboard workstation and power supply, we can show you through the shots of the day, as well as charge batteries inside the van.

We use top-of-the-range drones, cameras and lenses to ensure we capture the images you require while matching the specific codecs and outputs of your other cameras. Our kit includes the DJI Inspire 2 drone with X7 and X5S cameras, FPV (first person view) racing drones for those ‘impossible shots’, heavy-lift ALTA drones with the capability to lift 360º cameras or large cinema cameras and lenses, the portable and reliable Mavic 2 Pro, and the tiny Mini 2 for its ability to be flown fly freely in congested areas without the paperwork that any of its bigger cousins would require.

In addition to technical requirements, we manage all the legal and regulatory aspects of flying at each location, to ensure the shoot happens safely and in compliance with the UK Civil Aviation Authority’s regulations.
We work on projects across the UK and abroad — from remote Scottish islands to city locations including central London — and have procedures to operate safely in congested areas.

Our Approved Supplier status with 1st Option Safety Group is a testament to our safety record.

Here is just some of the kit we use

DJI INSPIRE 2

This exceptional drone is our all-rounder. With multiple lens, camera and codec options, up to 6K video and 24MP stills, it’s well-suited to a wide range of drone filming and photography projects. We can fly it as a single operator or dual crew for more advanced shots or challenging scenarios.

FPV Racer drone

First Person View drones are flown via video goggles, putting the pilot ‘in the drone’. We can fly these powerful, nimble drones precisely through windows and buildings, diving down cliff faces or chasing cars very closely. The results are jaw-dropping and immersive camera movement!

ALTA 6

The ALTA 6 is a refined cinematography platform. When paired with our Freefly Mōvi gimbal, it enables us to provide a lightweight cinematic solution. We can carry full-frame mirrorless cameras such as Sony FX3, A7Riii, and a range of other DSLRs, with the option to attach PL-mount cine prime lenses.

Drone 360/VR

Combining the smooth flight characteristics of the ALTA 6 aircraft with the cutting-edge Kandao Obsidian R camera, we’re able to produce a variety of outputs up to 8K resolution, 3D stereoscopic content for 360º tours, or Virtual Reality environments.

ALTA X

The ALTA X is Freefly’s largest drone for aerial cinematography used for features, drama and high-end commercials. Using the Mōvi Pro or Ronin 2 gimbals, we can lift cinema cameras such as Arri Alexa Mini LF, RED Monstro 8K and Sony Venice, using large cine lenses along with remote focus and iris control.

You can trust Skyhook to support your vision or self-direct a shoot

For many of our jobs, we enable the director’s vision to come to life. Our favourite moments are when directors are watching our monitor, exploding with delight at the drone shot which is developing on screen.

We can also work as a small crew and self-direct to a client’s brief.

For certain promotional projects, we can offer an end-to-end production service by shooting, editing and delivering the final piece, all in-house.
