How much does aerial photography & video cost?

Aerial photography and drone video quotes really depend on the brief provided as each job tends to be unique with many variable factors. At one level a client may require a few local, aerial photos right through to a full media campaign with film creation (ground based and aerial), music licensing and animated graphics. 

Your aerial photography requirements may need a one or two person team, one or more flying days etc.  Therefore, Whoosh Creative reserves the right to quote on request. 

Travel expenses for UK jobs will be billed at 45p per mile. If accommodation is needed, that will also be billable though this will be agreed with the client beforehand.

PAYMENT TERMS: 30 Days (unless by prior agreement / discussion) with 35% of the fee to be PAID IN ADVANCE to secure the booking (unless by special circumstances or if time doesn’t permit).

We will be happy to discuss any of the above with you in greater detail and think you will find us fair reasonable and transparent.

We are happy to provide ANY quotes in writing once we have received a full brief from the Client and been able to discuss the requirements and expectations of the shoot.


Due to the nature of the weather in the UK and nature of filming shoots we are very flexible when working with clients. Many of our jobs are booked very last minute. However we must have enough time to do pre-flight checks and ensure that the job can be undertaken safely, adhering to the rules & regulations of aerial filming and our operating licence.

We are happy to pencil in potential jobs and dates for Clients. However, actual bookings where deposits have been paid will always take priority. Naturally, if someone has a date pencilled in we will go back to them with first refusal on their proposed date. 


Remote controlled aerial filming is naturally affected by the flying conditions. If due to weather (i.e rain, strong winds etc) and we are not able to shoot we shall not charge the client if we can make alternative arrangements for the shoot to happen at another time. The 35% booking fee is simply transferred to another day when we can shoot. 

If the shoot cannot be re-scheduled (which we usually know in advance of the carrying out the job), we will discuss cancellation policy and potential fees with the Client and come to a fair and reasonable compromise. 

If a job is cancelled due to other issues and simply not re-scheduled due to the client no longer requiring our services the 35% deposit will not be refunded unless by a pre-agreement and if additional costs have been incurred will also have to be met by the client.


Unless a buyout of footage is specifically agreed and contracted, Whoosh Creative retains the copyright of all filming content. The client purchasing the service of Whoosh Creative will get full use of the material, however will not be able to sell the footage or allow 3rd party companies to use it without the agreement of Whoosh Creative.

Naturally we are proud of our work and Whoosh Creative actively promotes its and we do reserve the right to use ANY of our footage for internal promotion, whether this be inclusion on our showreel for PR purposes to promote Whoosh Creative. Also we reserve the right to supply the footage to stock libraries at a later date. 

If you have any questions or issues with any the above we would ask you to kindly speak to us in advance of commencement of filming. Thank you.


All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.
