You are based in Sydney. How far do you fly?
Though we are based in Sydney, we provide Australia wide coverage. There is no limit to our territory. Because we own our aircraft, we are always ready to fly. Please contact us for more information.
How much does your service cost?
Pricing for aerial photography varies depending on a number of factors. It may be that we have the right view for you in our Stock Image Library. If not, we offer custom aerial photography services. We can photograph a site one time or we can photograph it monthly or weekly to document construction progress. We often combine a number of jobs from various clients on the one flight and this makes us very competitive.
How do I receive my images?
We can provide your aerial images at any size and resolution you need. Website ready low resolution images are delivered by email for quick assessment and high resolution images are uploaded to Hightail for you to download.
What is your turn-around time?
The weather dictates when we can fly and depending on the site location air traffic clearances also dictate when we can shoot. We fly on every good sunny day when cloud shadows are not present. However, once we have captured custom aerial photos for you, we can deliver them the same day, if there is an immediate deadline. We never want to compromise the quality of our images, but we also don't want to miss your deadline if we can help it. We will discuss this when you order your custom aerials.
Can you label roads and landmarks on the photos?
We can customise your images by adding a combination of text labels, property lines, custom graphics, and logos.
Do you keep my images on file in case I need prints at a later date?
We permanently archive every image that we capture. Each image has a unique file number so that we can quickly retrieve a specific image if you later need us to provide additional digital files or prints.
Do I own the images that I order?
Copyright is a complex and often confusing issue that we try to keep very simple. Airphoto Australia maintains ownership of every image that we capture. However, we make it very easy for you to use your images as needed. Custom images (ones that you hire us to shoot for you) come with reproduction rights that allow you to use images as you please. The only limitation is that you cannot resell the images. Please contact us if you have questions about usage rights for your images.
What kind of camera equipment do you use?
Our images are produced 100% digitally. We use Canon digital cameras with professional lenses and the incredible medium format 50 MP Pentax 645z. Our drone of choice is the DJI Inspire 2 with Zenmuse X5S lens.
Is your work guaranteed?
Of course! Our guarantee, if you are not completely satisfied with the images we deliver to you, we will photograph your site again at no additional cost. It is critical to us that our clients are satisfied with their aerial images.
Do you only photograph commercial sites?
We can take photos of anything that can be seen from the air. In addition to commercial real estate and construction sites, we photograph residential property, farms, acreage properties, golf courses, industrial sites, city skylines, accident sites, apartment complexes...
What information do you need from me to get started?
Generally an outline of the property using Google Earth and a brief of your requirements emailed to us is all we need.
We look forward to flying for you.
