BEHIND THE LENS
Brian Keen, trading as Height Advantage Photography, has been specialising in commercial real estate since 2001, and in that time he has become one of the UK's leading photographers in this field, working for many of the biggest names in the property industry.
The backbone of the service is a vehicle-mounted high level mast, which can raise the remotely operated cameras up to 25 metres high to give superior images from superior viewpoints. Away from ground level clutter the height advantage can show a property at its best, emphasising the features that matter and showing the environment it's in. We'll also capture all the ground-level and interior images during the same visit. The mast can pretty much be sited anywhere a small van can park, and isn't subject to CAA restrictions.
Canon EOS 5D mark III DSLR's and L series lenses produce high quality 22MP image files suitable for any type of publication. The processed images are delivered electronically for quickest turnaround in these days of tight deadlines.
And now, to supplement the mast, our hexacopter UAV (drone) with 12MP camera can fly up to a height of 120 metres for aerial shots of the largest distribution sheds, overviews of industrial estates and to show the wider environment. Brian has CAA PfCO (Permit for Commercial Operations). All flights are subject to regulations and operational safety considerations.
Based in the Midlands, Height Advantage covers all of England and Wales, including London and the South-East, South and South-West, the Midlands, East Anglia, the North-West and North-East, so whether it's a one-off property, or a nationwide portfolio Height Advantage is the only name you need. Commissions are never sub-contracted out, so you know the standard will always be the same.
Height Advantage is covered by £5million public liability insurance.
