Above Barbados were hired to provide the aerial video component of WestJet's latest video commercial - a lovely Valentines Day campaign based around real couples proposing.  Shooting locations were varied - from a zipline aerial trek in a gully, to a catamaran on the West Coast of Barbados, the Cliff restaurant and the Animal Flower Cave on the...

We are also looking forward to a significant jump in...

We were priveleged to shoot the West Coast villa Senderlea for Blue Sky Luxury.  An interesting shoot providing quite a few opportunities for some good pull and reveal shots.  Read more about the villa at http://www.blueskyluxury.com/Barbados/Holidays/Property/54/Senderlea.html

The word is that Sam Lords Castle may be rebulit - 'at last' we all say! We will have to wait and see if this actually happens, but just in case, we thought it would be good to snap some high-definition video and stills of it's current state of disrepair for posterity. The recent clear weather (and low wind today!) made for perfect shooting...

Our first visit to Cove Bay was blighted by some bad weather and overcast conditions. So we revisited on a better day today to get some further photos, videos and panoramas. The gusty wind (up to 15knots) made things a little interesting but nevertheless, we managed to snap the shots we came for!
October 11th, 2014
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.
October 8th, 2014
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...
September 14th, 2014
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.
