Hi, I’m Paul.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I have a thing for drones and photography! I haven’t named my drones just yet, as I think it’s good to keep boundaries.
Day or night, seeing the world from above is mesmerising and what was once a keen hobby, has developed into a dream job.
My interest in drones first started, piloting them for Search and Rescue after applying for a position with the local team. This one decision has led to me not only being part of the Search and Rescue team but provided me with the opportunity to support local businesses with aerial photography, something I love doing as a fully licensed pilot.
Whether it’s saving lives, taking aerial shots for a business, flying over a local hotspot or photographing land for surveys, it’s great fun being out there! I love not only the quality of shots a drone can take but how they improve the safety of the tasks undertaken; no longer do you have to send somebody up a ladder or scale the side of a building to get great shots or find people. A drone can scale a building whilst the owner is standing right next to me, or can survey great areas with heat mapping and surveying technologies quickly and efficiently.
When I’m not flying my drones, I enjoy helping the local scout group, both of which are activities I enjoy with my sons. They’re already being trained to take on the family business! I’m a bit of an action man with a love for rugby, camping and kayaking; anything that will keep me outdoors. Just call me Bear Rudland.
I consider myself very lucky to work in Suffolk for a range of businesses and have experience in a wide range of roles:
- Shooting 3D tours
- Carrying out land and building surveys
- Mapping out local farmland
- Carrying out property safety checks
- Taking shots of land for property development
I can produce images, video and all the editing and packaging that goes with them. So, whether you want to shoot a tour for people before they arrive, want some support mapping out land or simply need to know if your roof needs replacing, then I can facilitate this.
When I’m not working for local businesses, I take shots for my neighbours, creating beautiful bird’s-eye views for them, for people to enjoy as gifts or for their own homes.
If you have a job you’d like support on or a specific photo taken from a different perspective, then please do get in touch. I promise not to ‘geek out’ too much and will ensure I work with you to get the images you need safely and securely.
