DJM Drone Photography pricing may vary depending on the complexity, associated risks and location of the drone photography.  To discuss your plans and requirements please contact me.

Each job is unique and because all aerial photography drone flights are covered by CAA regulations I always carry out a detailed online Pre-flight survey before sending you a final quote.

I do not do drone camera hire or drone rental without one of our pilots.

Site Survey, Booking, Deposit and Timing 

Remote pilot aerial drone photography and video is affected by the weather especially in Northern Ireland.  Therefore DJM Drone Photography have a flexible and pragmatic approach to scheduling client work.

I cannot operate my drone in rain or high winds.   Also clients may have specific requirements that restrict us to flying at specific times.

What I Need From You

The location of the shoot (with an exact postcode), proposed date and a brief containing as much background information as possible on what you want me to photograph and film.

Site Survey

I can then do an initial office based online site survey to see if the shoot is possible and if there are any other factors, flight restrictions or permissions that need to be considered.

To comply with the terms of my CAA license I still need to complete a pre-flight survey. This could involve a physical site visit.

Each job is unique with a mixture of external influences that can affect when and where I can film, but we plan ahead to decrease possible disruptions.

Booking & Deposit

If the result of our site survey is positive DJM Drone Photography will send you a quote with a detailed brief of the shoot, provisional date and costs.

If you are happy with our quotation, I may arrange a physical site visit to discuss any final arrangements.

I operate a provisional booking system with a firm shoot date been agreed when we have received a 25% deposit.


We monitor the weather forecast 7 days in advance of any shoot.  If the signs are not good I talk to the client 48,24 & 4 hours prior to the shoot.

At this point I will reschedule the shoot to the next suitable date at no additional cost and the booking deposit is transferred to the new date. Weather is a business risk in Northern Ireland, so I have to be as flexible as possible to ensure that bookings can be rearranged.

If the shoot cannot be re-scheduled due to factors out of my control (live events, client availability) DJM Drone Photography do not offer a refund of the initial deposit.

If we both decide to stay with the original date and we have bad weather, I will wait on site as long as possible in the hope of a break in the weather.

If I arrive on site and unable to shoot on the day I will charge in full, but offer clients a 25% discount off the price of the second shoot on the follow up date.


If the client cancels the shoot within 7 days of the scheduled date the 25% deposit will not be refunded.

Copyright and Use of Material 

DJM Drone Photography retains the copyright of all aerial photography and filmed content.

We can negotiate and agree a buyout of footage for specific filming contracts.

My clients have full use of all photography and filmed material for their own business promotion, media, print, marketing, advertising and website use.  In our terms of service clients are permitted to use all material in conjunction with their media, print and advertising suppliers. Clients are not permitted to sell the material or allow general 3rd parties to use it with prior written agreement with us.

DJM Drone Photography promotes my business and services via a diverse combination of media channels.  I reserve the right to use any video footage or photograph still images for my own PR purposes, on my website, in a showreel, in printed material and on social media.

With regard to client confidentiality and any embargo provisions, DJM Drone Photography agrees not use any video footage or photographs until our client has published the material.

I also reserve the right to supply video footage and photographs to stock libraries at a later date.
