It was high time (no pun intended) that we gathered some nice clear stock footage from Chalky Mount. So, given how clear the day was, we packed off to the East Coast of Barbados and set about getting some reels of video and stills from the picturesque location on the East Coast.

A full day spent shooting all around Barbados with the BBC for a their Caribbean programme. A very interesting shoot not without it's challenges! Shooting for the travel show with Simon Reeve we began the day at Port St. Charles - shooting a catermaran from a chase boat. The director, being seasoned with drone use, was able to be very specific...

An exploratory visit in the late afternoon to Martin's Bay on the East Coast of Barbados. Sadly the weather didn't really play ball so only a few shots, but having now scouted the location completely - we'll be back!

Perhaps every quadcopter/multi-rotor pilot's worst nightmare? - having to film a mobile tower... Well, we were hired by a local media agency to film one! Internet-wide one of the main sources of 'fly-aways' is reported (although this is still up for debate) to be interference from mobile/cellular network towers interfering with controller...

  Shooting footage in Bridgetown on behalf of a local media agency for a forthcoming advert. Some quite technical flying involving movement inside a house, through a veranda and then a combination of altitude and gimballing - all while staying in the controlled airspace and keeping the subject in view front and centre! We'll update with the link...

A beautiful picnic spot, a stunning building and an amazing location. So, quite naturally, we wanted to film it from the air... We utlised some long shots flying in through the building and out the other side along with some high shots to show the scale of the property.

Glitter Bay on the West Coast of Barbados is a beautiful resort with lush gardens, tennis courts, pool, bar and it all sits on a lovely stretch of beach just outside of Holetown. Barbados Villa Services hired Above Barbados to create a promo video for the villas they manage at the resort. We actually had to shoot this twice, the first visit in...

Apes Hill Golf course is a stunning 18 hole course on the West Coast of Barbados. Commanding views right over the coast, varied elavation and amazing scenery we took the opportunity to shoot the 16th hole late in the afternoon.
August 28th, 2014
The Southern Boardwalk has proven a hugely popular feature. Taking 20 or so minutes to walk down and featuring a myriad of restaurants and bars it is always a popular spot. To gather some footage for our forthcoming promo-reel we made a quick visit.
August 9th, 2014
The boat that seems as though it will never launch has always been of interest, so time to get airbourne and take some shots of this stretch of West Coast beach!
August 7th, 2014
Having gathered quite a large amount of stock footage, we set about creating a promo reel for Spring/Summer 2014. Utilising clips taken across Barbados we put together a reel showcasing the various shots we are able to take. Enjoy!
August 3rd, 2014
Well, we couldn't really do all these shots of Barbados without featuring Rihanna's new house could we? So over to Payne's Bay and we snapped some shots and video of the bay and Sandy Lane One - where Rihanna recently purchased a unit.
July 31st, 2014
On our continuing stock footage gathering mission we went to Batts Rock to gather a video reel and some still photos. We were lucky enough to bump into the What'SUP Barbados stand up paddleboarders - allowing us to get some great footage of them paddling round the bay. In addition, there were also a myriad of small fishing boats casting nets which...

The Paynes Bay Fish Market on the West Coast of Barbados is a picturesque bay that always gives stunning colours. It also gave us a chance to try out our new datalogger - this allows us to overlay flight information and track flights.
July 24th, 2014
Now closed to the public and falling to ruin, the church commands stunning views over the East Coast. It was interesting to fly around to see how progressively worse the structure is getting and to see the state of the roof.
July 20th, 2014
Shooting in various locations in Bridgetown and across the island - we were filming for a local artiste performing a music video. A huge range of very varying locations were involved - from buildings, to inside structures, to fields, to the bush. An interesting experience and insight into the world of music video creation. Another enjoyable shoot...
July 8th, 2014
The Garrison racecourse in Bridgetown has horse racing every Saturday, however, it might not be the best idea to buzz horses with a remote multi-rotor rig! As such, we went during a quieter weekday to gather some photos and stock footage while also taking the opportunity to take some aerial video of the ongoing rugby trials taking place.
June 26th, 2014
Palm Beach is an exclusive apartment complex on the South Coast of Barbados. TM Caribbean Luxury manage two of the units and required a promo video for their website. Utilising interior, external and aerial footage, Above Barbados delivered the video along with high-quality still photos.
June 23rd, 2014
Scenic filming across various locations in Barbados for the forthcoming Bajan Kung-Fu movie Once Upon a Time in Ichirouganaim. An interesting day of filming taking in some well-known locations, and other less well know locations - you'll have to wait for the movie to see the less well known ones!
