Using a telescopic mast for elevated photos/videos can be a rewarding and proven business opportunity.
We have gained a great deal of experience in aerial photography and video over the years, building up an invaluable knowledge base and becoming the UK’s go-to supplier of specialist equipment in this field. It is possible to create truly inspiring, high impact images of many subjects and can be used to generate a profitable income stream. Please see our aerial photography gallery for some examples of the diverse array of subjects that can be shown off to their best potential using a mast.
We are happy to supply a full and in-depth marketing package, free of charge, for customers who are interested in setting up their own photography business. The business start-up package contains a comprehensive overview of marketing images, along with tips on the day-to-day running of this potentially lucrative venture.
Many people choose to complement our systems by also utilising a drone. The Civil Aviation Authority has established a Dronecode that must be adhered to when using a drone, and employing a mast in situations where drone use is prohibited is the most effective way to avoid prosecution and the heavy fines related to improper/illegal drone use. Unlike drones, there is no legislation to overcome when using a telescopic mast.
Well Known within the Industry
We are well known as the leading and industry-standard provider of mast photography and video systems, and we can advise on simple to use, rapid deployment, full turn-key solutions to suit any budget. We stock a full wired or wireless live view camera and pan and tilt control.
Most photographers and videographers choose a mast from our portable Ø101mm diameter range, with an extended height of around 15 – 17m extended. Please take a look at our portable masts range size charts for more information. We have developed ingenious options to cater for every conceivable type of mast mounting. Portable masts are usually used with a tripod, drive-on or tow hitch mount. Our collapsible/adjustable tripod (QPod) is available in two sizes and features peg-able feet for use on soft ground, and can also be used on wheels for extra manoeuvrability.

Each mast is constructed from 2mm anodised aluminium, which is very robust yet more lightweight than steel.
Formed from strong powder coated aluminium, the box contains a roller mechanism which allows forward and backward level adjustment of the mast when parked on uneven ground, and the tow hitch winder assembly enables side to side level adjustment, giving the operator full control of the masts position and stability.
Ideal for large tower or antenna systems which need to be portable, our trailer masts are ideal and can be easily operated by just one person.
