Whilst the craziness of May 2021 continued and I was asking you to vote for me in the Airwards (didn’t win but thank you so much for voting for me I really appreciated it) I was working on a documentary for UCLAN (University of Central Lancashire ) about drones. I feel very lucky to work on what feels like a dream project. I often create corporate videos and TV documentaries this sits between the two in its editorial tone and content. https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/577194228 – Main audience is the drone community and industry those as this is for a project called Aerial Uptake which several ..read more

Airwards – Nomination

I am not one to ask for testimonials from companies or people I have trained, I live by a quote that says ‘What people think about you is none of your business’. I think it is a good measure when I get rebooked and also when a client gives feedback I respond. It’s good to know when you are not delivering expectations and how can you improve. However if you are on social media, write a blog and put your head above the parapet its probably more freeing to think of the quote. It is freeing as you are not thinking what people are thinking of you. To my surprise I was contacted by the organisers of ..read more

Drone being flown pre Covid days with a spotter The law surrounding drones has now changed, six months later than planned due to the ongoing challenges of 2020. Over the next few days I will be explaining what that means to you if you are a current PFCO holder, or if you have just bought yourself a sub 250g drone as a film maker / photographer hoping to cash in. Also aiming to help if you let your PFCO lapse or if you wanted to wait and what you needed to do once the new laws came in. So what is the change in the law? As of today 31st December 2020 – the CAA is aligning with EASA (European Uni ..read more

Part of Freelance Friday’s theme is TV freelancing, ok I am not working in TV at the moment and it’s not Friday but I thought what the heck!  A few ideas for you as a number of my freelance friends are frustrated at the lack of work and lack of purpose.   Why are you managing to stay positive? They ask and actually I am not positive all the time, this lockdown is hard. Today I woke up and thought that I don’t have any paid work yet but I do have projects I am working on but they may or may not bring cash to pay the mortgage. I am sick of chasing a well known broadcaster for expenses and if I ..read more

Freelance Friday’s

For a while I had been thinking of writing every Friday about Freelance tips, then in January I got ill with a coughing virus – no idea if this was The virus or just a virus? Then I had surgery minor but it knocked me off my feet for most of February. I was also lacking in motivation I think I needed my brain to heal as well. Bless the NHS, I felt so grateful then and much more now.  I am just getting my motivation back and the whole world stops.  So this explains my absence for the last 3 months. This blog post will have some links to help UK Freelancers and UK Freelance TV Pros, then I will ..read more

Oh my we have landed in Australia! I am sat here drinking berocca (other vitamin drinks are available) as it was in the wonderful welcome pack given to us on landing here for World of Drones Congress.   Something that has been on the horizon for about ten months.  Can’t believe we have finally landed, I am here with Gemma Alcock from Skybound rescuer and we couldn’t be more excited. Both of us are speaking, meeting with people and I am running a creative drone masterclass on Wednesday!  I thought I best find out a bit about Australian drone laws, because of course I have brought a drone with ..read more

In just over a month before I head out to the The World of Drones Congress. (WoDC) in Brisbane. I was invited back in December 2018 and got official request to attend in February. It felt like a life time ago but as with all things,  it is now fast coming up on the horizon. I feel very honoured to be invited. Since  I have known about the WoDC, I have wanted to attend but to be invited as a speaker is really beyond what I could have thought could happen.  For me it looks like the one event that is more about the business opportunities and the sharing of knowledge to springboard your business ..read more
