I set up ASCENT FILMWORKS because I’ve always had a passion for all things aviation related and a keen interest in cinematography and camera work from an early age, so bringing them together using drones felt like a great way to pair the two.
Having studied film making, videography and photography plus many years experience building & piloting remote control rotor craft, acquiring my permission for commercial drone operations from the Civil Aviation Authority was the next natural step in the process.
Despite being a relatively new venture, I have had the privilege of working alongside some reputable companies and talented individuals. This exposure has helped me to feel just as comfortable fitting in with a larger crew as i do working on smaller projects in remote locations.
