Welcome to Richard Elliott Aerial Filming, I’m CAA approved aerial & ground filmmaker and photographer, based in Aviemore & Edinburgh, and contracted with Getty Images since 1990.


Commercial photos & videos are the backbone of any photography business, and drones have literally brought into focus angles and views which haven't been seen before.


Everyone loves scenic photos & videos, and having spent 25 years creating them for clients and Getty Images, you can rely on me to achieve exactly the view and feel you're looking for.


Ever since my first commission for Norwegian State Railways & VIA Rail Canada in 1990/1991, I've loved photographing transport and transportation networks - now with added aerial impact!
