Carole Adams and Paul Hamilton are Tin Snail Design Photography. We are both full-time professional photographers and have been photographing weddings throughout SW England for over 20 years. During the last 5 years we have been running many digital photography courses, workshops and one-to-one training sessions. Paul has always had a keen interest in radio controlled aircraft and helicopters so it seemed a natural progression to add an aerial camera system to our equipment as these devices are now able to produce very high quality images suitable for both online use and high quality printing.
At the beginning of 2015, we decided to spend time building up a library of images that we could use for various projects we were planning. The results of nearly a year travelling around England and Wales provide the images we are showcasing on this website and no, the sun did not shine all the time !
All flying is conducted following the CAA’s CAP 1202 guidelines and we obtain permission of the land/property owner when we fly and photograph over private property. Paul also has a current PfCO (permission for commercial operations) from the CAA in order to legally undertake commercial UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) operations. Safety is our first concern and we always operate as a team, with Paul as pilot and Carole as lookout/artistic director !
