About Us



We are dedicated to leading the evolution of aerial cinematography and training others.

We specialise in capturing smooth, spectacular footage and imagery from the air, on the ground and even underwater. We have invested in and mastered state-of-the-art drone and camera stabilisation technology to ensure even the smallest vibrations don't ruin a shot.

Founded by Matt Williams, a former military helicopter pilot with thousands of manned flying hours, Aerial Motion Pictures has gone from strength to strength. The growing but tight-knit team hold a wealth of experience from cinematography to surveying and hundreds of unmanned flying hours too.

We're proud to hold exclusive permissions for our aircraft, thanks to our experience training and certifying over 500 operators in the last year.

Enhanced Permissions

We were the first independent CAA-approved provider of commercial drone training and certification in the UK.

Aerial Motion Pictures conducts aerial work under an Operating Safety Case (OSC) which allows us to operate by day and by night down to as little as 5 meters from persons and property not under our control; the highest level of permission issued by the CAA within the UK.

This allows us to operate UAVs in areas where other companies cannot.

Please be aware, all UK operators working for commercial gain, require a Permission for Aerial Work (PfAW) from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). When hiring an operator, you should always ask to see their PfAW, Operations Manual and Insurance to ensure they are operating legally.
