Back in May I was asked to produce a short promo video for an estate agents based in the historic Derbyshire town of Wirksworth. For this project I used a variety of techniques as well as the drone for some aerial footage. For more information and to discuss your filming or photographic project please feel free to contact me on 07870864031.
Not just drone photography and video.
As well as offering an aerial photography and video service to Derby and the surrounding area I also offer other services such as video editing, time-lapse photography and also a regular photography service. All three of these skills came in handy for a recent project I was working on for a client in Wirksworth in Derbyshire. The short video that I made for a client based in Wirksworth consisted of various filming techniques including time-lapse and some aerial filming with my drone. Most of the footage was filmed in Wirksworth with some additional shots being filmed in the surrounding towns of Cromford and Matlock. Wirksworth in particularly is a beautiful town with some lovely old buildings, the town itself is surrounded by green rolling hills and also some nice abandoned quarries. Wirksworth also has a thriving arts scene with many artists based in the town. The annual Wirksworth Arts Festival is certainly worth a visit.

The Woodland Trust…Young People’s Forest.
Last week I was involved in a high profile launch of the Young People’s Forest near Heanor in Derbyshire with The Woodland Trust. Over a hundred young people gathered on a former coal mining site as they planted the first trees of Britain’s first Young People’s Forest.
The weather was perfect for capturing aerial views of the site which will be transformed into a 400 acre woodland, and also for capturing an aerial shot of the young people spelling out YPF (Young People’s Forest).
Make your campsite STAND OUT from the crowd…
Over the previous year I have helped many small business’s including numerous campsites stand out from the crowd by providing them with stunning aerial photography and videography for their websites and marketing campaigns. Now that Easter is well and truly out of the way and the spring like weather has arrived isn’t it about time to make your business whether its an Airbnb rental, campsite or holiday cottage…
STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD.
As well as helping many small business’s over the year I have also helped numerous private individuals sell their homes by providing stunning interior, exterior and aerial photography for them to use for their property marketing campaigns.

Middle Peak Quarry, Derbyshire.
There is long a history of quarrying and mining on this site in Wirksworth Derbyshire . Lead was mined here for about 2000 years, until the lead began to run out when the site changed to a limestone quarry. In the summer time the lagoons are popular with bathers, however at some point in 2015 the water was dyed black to deter people from swimming there. This was also the case at The Blue Lagoon at Buxton, however on a recent visit the colour has returned to blue.
They call it the Blue Lagoon, and people come from far and wide to cool off in its clear waters.
Yet the flooded former quarry is so polluted that its contents are almost as toxic as bleach.
Signs close to the shoreline warn that not only is the water known to contain abandoned cars, dead animals and human waste, but it has a pH level of 11.3 – compared with 12.6 for bleach and 11.5 for ammonia.
These images make up part of a project about abandoned quarries in the midlands.
