Ian works for Flight Images, based in the heart of
Surrey and one of the UK's leading aerial photography companies specialising in
a wide range of aerial imaging activities. The company was formed in 2000 with
highly experienced personnel from both military and police air support unit
backgrounds and quickly developed an enviable reputation for providing superb
quality aerial imagery.
Flight Images has worked on behalf of a wide range of
clients, many of them overseas. Projects include a pipeline survey in
Kazakhstan for Chevron-Texaco, flight simulator imagery for the US Navy,
infrared survey in Greece for BBC Horizon and the end sequence for
Blockbuster's TV advert.
In 2003 Flight Images acquired London Aerial Photo
Library, one of the largest and most up to date aerial photo libraries in the
UK. The library holds in excess of 300,000 images with extensive coverage of
most of the country. Its photographs of London are second to none with
comprehensive oblique and vertical photos which are constantly being updated.
The company operates a number of aircraft and
helicopters, including a twin engine Chieftain, which carries out continual
nationwide digital survey work on behalf of Get-Mapping using the latest state
of the art Vexcel Ultracam D camera.
Ian's skills have proved invaluable to Flight Images,
which has a reputation for tackling technically difficult projects, which other
aerial photography companies are reluctant to undertake.
