About Midi Aerial Photography

Specialist commercial drone operations for the construction, surveying and property industries

When it comes to photographing the built environment, it is important for you to work with a specialist drone pilot who understands the subject and has relatable skills with specialist photography knowledge.

Following on from his 15 years as a Building Surveyor and Project Manager, Mike Dinsdale started Midi Photography in 2015. He has provided contractors and professionals in the built environment across the UK with high quality architectural and interior photography services ever since. In 2016, Mike expanded into drone photography to meet the growing needs of his clients.

As a mark to his professionalism and competency, Mike’s USP is that he is possibly the only specialist photographer in the UK with such extensive property experience;  a PfCO permission from the Civil Aviation Authority to operate drones; with night operations permission to fly at any time of day; and from 2020, now granted prestigious extended operating rights via an Operating Safety Case (OSC) to pilot drones much closer to other buildings and in built-up areas.

With Mike’s extensive background in the built environment, Midi Aerial Photography provides specialist aerial photography, survey and inspection services, giving clients key project details safely, conveniently and accurately.
