West Wales Drone Services
West Wales Drone Services create high quality aerial drone mapping, filming and photography in Wales and throughout the UK. We use the latest DJI Mavic 2 Pro, Zoom and Enterprise Dual drones as well a DJI Mini 2 for work in built up area's and have access to other drones to capture stunning 4k video and HDR stills. We are specialists in the acquisition and processing of aerial photography, and in the creation of high quality digital imagery products including 4k video. We are a company that prides itself on working to strict flight plans to promote the safety of drone flights in the UK. We pride ourselves on adhering to all the CAA rules and regulations to work in a fully safe environment. West Wales Drone Services hold a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Permission to fly Commercial Operations (PfCO) or now known as Operational Authorisation throughout the UK and are fully insured with public liability insurance. We now also hold the new A2 CofC authorisation which will enable us to fly closer in more places once the new CE marked drones are available. We have also recently gained a Drone Thermography Level 1 certification, this will enable us to provide Thermal inspections on buildings and solar panels to name a few. We hold a clear and current DBS check if required for any site that would require one. We have a vast knowledge in the basic functions of a camera that enables us to get that required shot, and have heavily invested in the latest technology to assist the processing and editing of all imagery. We also have the ability to provide ground based photography and video ranging from Headshots and Portraits to event photography and video. This combined with aerial footage we can provide an all in one solution for your event or business. As PfCO holders we have to follow all the required safety precautions, we contact all required bodies for authorisation and permission to fly (Air traffic control, RAF, MOD, Police, Land owners and any other persons or bodies that may be required). We also provide a pre-site and on-site risk assessment as part of our flight planning procedure, we work through an extensive pre-flight and post-flight checklist to ensure our equipment is in good working order. All our flights are logged onto our system which can be handed over 24 hours after job completion as a flight pack for your records. We follow these procedures to make sure every flight we make is safe not only for us but for every client we do work for.

We asked Martin to film parts of Fishguard for a Zoom talk of the French invasion of Britain in 1797.
His drone footage was excellent and of very high quality.
What I particularly liked was that he would go out of his way to be helpful and accommodating. We are not experts in this field and helped us put together a great film.
We will use him again and highly recommend him.
