​How It Works

Our work for you begins with a free consultation at the site of the intended shoot or, if not possible, a separate site visit by us to check out the feasibility of the job. Once our clients brief has been agreed and signed-off a full written risk assessment of the site is carried out followed by a further assessment on the day of the shoot.

​Our team on the day, dependant on the site and size of shoot, consists of the UAV pilot, camera operator and observer and security on the largest jobs. However, for the smallest localised shoots the client may be able to act as observer, if they wish, or even camera operator; following a little tuition.

On completion we can provide you with raw digital copies of your photographs and videos, enhance them for you or even have them framed or printed on canvas or aluminium to decorate your home or office. You brief us on what you want and we do the rest.

Safety & Qualifications

Based in North Lancashire our aim is to provide outstanding aerial footage while maintaining the highest level of safety and professionalism. Our qualified UAV (drone) pilots have permission for 'aerial work' granted by the Civil Aviation Authority which means they are legally, privacy laws not withstanding, able to obtain the photographs and moving images you need whatever your requirements.


Lancaster and District Heritage Group have engaged Gary of Phantom Films on several aerial photography jobs including Quay Meadow site investigation, Nicholson's works and the preparation of documentary evidence to be submitted to Historic England for a building protection application. The work and professionalism has been of the highest standards and we look forward to instructing Phantom Films for more birds eye pictures of our local heritage in the future.
