Sealand Celebrate 45 Years

April 29th, 2015

Sealand Aerial Photography was established in 1970 to supply high quality Aerial Photography pricipally as a service to surveyors. The service proved popular and the business, based at Goodwood Airfield blossomed and subsequently supplied both oblique and vertical imagery to a large variety of diverse clients.

In May 2004 the company was purchased by Philip Huxham and Malcolm Lamb and re-located to it’s current premises at Pitland’s Farm in the South Downs. A short flight from Goodwood the offices nestle in a valley and benefit from an airstrip less than a hundred metres away from the office front door. The Company embraced the digital era investing in the latest cameras, lenses and computer hardware and software. Sealand have a long list of loyal clients some of whom have been using the company’s services since the 1970’s and the client list has been growing steadily since 2004. Five of our highly experience commercial pilots are pictured standing, amazingly their combined flying hours amount to in excess of 57,000!!

Confused about Drones?

April 28th, 2015

The use of UAV’s (Drones) for Aerial Photography has been well documented by  recent reports in the media. There is no doubt that it is possible to use this medium to provide excellent low level video and still photography for Commercial Property marketing. However it is essentially a new product that does have it’s limitations and the use of UAV’s is strictly controlled by the CAA. There are severe penalties for those that choose to flaunt the regulations. At Sealand we are well placed to provide advice to our clients and we are also able to supply a comprehensive service for low level video and still photography from UAV’s.

On November 27th last year the Sealand Cessna took off from Goodwood to photograph a unique event on the sea front at nearby Hove in West Sussex. The photography was undertaken on behalf of which is an International campaign that are building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis. The 350 Earth project was the worlds first ever global art project. In over a dozen places across the globe, citizens and artists created massive public art installations. Each art installation was large enough to be seen from space and documented by satellites, ground and aerial photography.

The final event was the event at Hove, where Thom Yorke (the lead singer of Radiohead) assembled a few thousand of his closest friends and biggest fans to brave the cold on England’s coast. Together, they formed the image of the legendary King Canute attempting to hold back the waters.
