Hello! I'm Chris, the founder and operations director of Pesky Seagull Aerial photography and Video based in Tamworth.
My background is in the aviation industry having enjoyed a career for 27 years (and counting) in a multitude of roles starting life as an aircraft valeter, before moving around the airport community where roles have included pushbacks, moving aircraft, baggage, deicing, catering, aircraft refuelling, crew control, operations and handling executive jets with their rich and famous passengers. You name it I've probably done it and name them I've probably seen them! Although involved in many projects over the years I am proud to have been part of the small team that handled Concorde on it's farewell tour. I am also a qualified Class 1 HGV driver however my original aspiration was to become a wedding videographer!
In the aviation world safety is the priority followed closely by customer service, both of which have been put at the very top of our core values.
Why "Pesky Seagull" ? you may ask.. Well whilst out in flying my first drone, (the phantom 4) on the secluded beaches of the Algarve it was attacked by a flock of territorial seagulls and the name Pesky Seagull evolved into a business. I personally think the name is quite apt as the more I think about it, drones & seagulls have a lot in common! Like myself, the name is unique!
Although there are so many applications for drones from roof inspections to tv and film, we have also invested heavily in ground based cameras and gimbals to offer our clients a fusion of footage from all angles.
We now boast a "fleet" of drones from our flagship Inspire 2 to our baby mini 2 all of which have individual advantages . Pesky Seagull continues to provide all it's original services however we now also offer a full wedding videography service, so the original ambition has now been realised eventually!
We are based in the West Midlands at the centre of the UK transport hub.
