Elevated Photography

To create a totally different perspective from the normal, Red Pepper Studios are able to photograph your property, site, event, business and countless other requirements from over 50ft in the air.

Commonly referred to as telescopic mast photography, it is also referred to as elevated pole photography or low altitude aerial photography. Either from the back of the vehicle or on a separate ground stabilised tripod the telescopic mast extends to 15 metres (50 feet) allowing the elevated photograph to be taken more precisely and without the time pressure of conventional aeroplane or very expensive helicopter based aerial photography. Being digital, we can see exactly how the shots are working and change angles or move the camera body remotely. The client is welcome to sit with us and view the images as they are being taken and even direct if they like.

High mast operation is limited by rain and wind strength. We can operate the mast without guy rope support up to 15mph and with guy rope support up to 30mph. We normally fit guy ropes as a matter of course. For wind strength greater than 15mph, mast photography is not possible and we would endeavour to re-visit at the next available earliest opportunity. Available light also plays an important part in providing you with the best possible images. Ideal times are between 10.00am and 5.00pm throughout the Summer months, but between 11.00am and 2pm throughout Winter. Lastly, the direction of light, dependant on perhaps which way the building is facing may dictate the best time of day for photographs. Bright overcast days are best, but some directional sunlight for additional modelling can be of benefit in some cases.
