Your Eye In The Sky

Drones are now being used in many challenging situations, from filming action sporting videos, industrial surveys, Insurance reports, agricultural inspections as well as real estate and marine photography.

Colehouse Commercial Drones have the ability to fly close to buildings, boats, and into awkward positions where other means of access may not be safe, appropriate or cost effective.

We can provide detailed high definition pictures of buildings, roofs, sites and structures where access towers, cherry pickers and scaffold or helicopters may not be viable.

Hi I’m Gavin and I am here to help you with the professional guidance though the whole process from your first enquiry, through the feasibility and planning stages to filming and editing, ensuring you achieve the best possible results.

About Colehouse Commercial Drones

We can offer a quick solution to investigate an area that needs to be inspected. We can liaise with the client on the ground ensuring that all areas of concern are covered. 

The client or surveyor is able to see what the camera is seeing via a real time HD downlink, with more detailed video and photographic results provided once the Drone has landed. Our Drones also allow surveyors to see signs of structural damage, evidence of work completed and planning application assistance in a time and cost effective manner.

We are fully C.A.A licensed, No. 3542, to use remote-controlled, multi-rotor UAVs (drones) for aerial filming & photography including at night with our experiences pilots.

We can operate up to 400ft high and fly to a distance of up to 500m.

Our drones provide you with a unique view of the world below.

Nothing else gives you a scale and perspective for your project quite like our photography and video work can.



What was previously a difficult and expensive task can now be achieved much more cost-effectively using our remotely piloted aerial systems.

In industrial surveys and Insurance surveys there are significant costs savings with using drones, combined with the benefit of not requiring staff to work at heights.

According to Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) Hierarchy of Control Measures, the use of UAVs avoids work at height and its attendant risk; it is the safest method of delivering high-level roof and building surveys.

As a result, drones are now replacing ladders, cherry pickers and scaffolding for inspecting roofs, chimneys and tall buildings whilst also replacing helicopters and light aircraft for site surveys.

Bridges form a key part of our nation’s infrastructure but obtaining accurate condition information of these structures can be highly problematic using tradition methods of working. Not only is gaining access difficult and inefficient, but bridges span many hazardous environments such as rivers, roads and railways.

Using a drone to undertake the inspection eliminates many of these issues. 

Photographic condition information can be rapidly obtained for all elements of bridges’ masonry and steelwork.

More recently Drones are being used to help monitor construction site progress and project management on a scale that has been hard to do before.

It is often quicker to use time laps photography to track the progress of a building site and report this back in a visual way to the management team as part of a progress report than create a manual report. 


Professional photography and UHD 4K video production for the marine market.

The marine environment provides a unique challenge and opportunity. From filming boats and yachts to inspecting bridges or cliff faces, sea coasts to wind turbines and water based structures.

Aerial photography with a drone over water brings a whole new perspective to showcasing your boat, and offers the unique benefit of getting close up-footage of the vessel under way. Drones are highly portable and offer rapid deployment to help catch that exquisite moment when you are out in the ocean cruising along at sunrise with the spinnaker flying and the dolphins swimming alongside, or capturing the sailing regattas key racing moments, the launching of a boat or perhaps capturing a salvage project.

There are many other times when a drone can bring immense benefit to organizations, such as Inspecting that difficult to reach coastal structure, perhaps following a storm when it is unsafe to reach it on foot, close up inspections of sea defenses or just checking quickly the coastal fence line; the drone comes into its own.


Drone aerial photography for estate agents and private sellers

Drone aerial photography is becoming an increasingly popular tool for both estate agents and private sellers of properties, as not only does it place the seller above the competition, but it also allows for previously unavailable opportunities like cinematic aerial shots of an entire estate and its surroundings, risk-free roof inspections, and detailed close-ups of hard to reach features.

Properties that may appear ordinary when documented from the ground, are often completely transformed when captured from above. By using drones, we can film or photograph a birds-eye view of your client’s property or estate, that provides an exclusive vantage point for potential buyers – a huge benefit for anyone looking to sell.


Flyover video with a ‘golf ball view’

Using a promotional golf flyover video which shows all 18 holes with a golf ball like view above the fairway on your website, is the perfect way to show off your course and encourages golfers and societies to book up their next visit.

Or why not play it in your clubhouse or reception desk on a large television on a loop to impress your visitors. It is also a great way for your customers to get the perfect view of your golf course while they are sitting comfortably at home browsing your website whilst they plan their course management approach.


Time Saving

With no scaffolding to arrange or setup we can start almost immediately. Using flight stabilisation technology our photo and films are crystal clear and can be completed in a fraction of the time of traditional surveys and inspections


Safety is our main priority. Our pilots are registered and certified by the Civil Aviation Authority to conduct professional aerial photography and video within strict UK approved guidelines.


We are fully insured including £1m public liability cover which can be increased if required.

Fully Qualified

All our pilots have received professional intense training on how to fly the aircraft safely within it’s limitations, emergency procedures, and risk assessment for each flight.


We adhere strictly to operating guidelines and rules laid out by the C.A.A.
