About Us

Welcome to Skyworks WA - one of the best and most experienced Unmanned Aerial System/Vehicle ("UAS/UAV" or drone) companies in Western Australia for remote aerial filming and photography services.  We are also a "one-stop shop" for promotional film production combining stunning aerial footage with ground-based video and creative editing.

​​Skyworks WA is a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) registered UAS Operator Certificate Holder (CASA.UOC.0066), with a night rating, and has Public Liability insurance coverage.  We are based in the Perth Hills but are a fully mobile operation enabling us to cover events and capture footage throughout WA and beyond.

These UAVs are site specific and are able to safely go where a full sized aircraft or helicopter would be restricted. They have minimal environmental impact, fly more safely in sensitive areas, and at a fraction of the cost. They can be deployed right from site within a few minutes of arrival, and can fly for up to 17 minutes before a change of batteries and redeployment.

With this equipment and expertise we can;

  • ​film in 4K, 1080p and several other formats - both daytime and at night,
  • live stream our aerial footage using an HDMI link,
  • provide high quality aerial stills taken with cameras that range from 12 to 20 megapixels,
  • combine aerial footage and imagery with output captured using gimbal-stabilised hand-held cameras, Go-Pros and Canon EOS 5D MkIIs with a variety of lenses to cover multiple angles from the ground as well as the sky,
  • offer survey & mapping services for areas of up to approximately 100 hectares.

We tailor our services according to the client's requirements, and also offer editing services.  So, if it's an event, a project, a property or just an idea, the chances are we can photograph, film and edit for you at a very affordable price.  As a Member of the Events Industry Association (EIA), we are committed to the highest standards of professionalism and service.  We take risk and safety very seriously and our pilots work directly under our control and supervision.  We do not "rent out" our UAS Operating license to be used by less experienced subcontracting RPAS pilots.

Further information on the application of UAVs can be found on our
 Services page, while examples of our films and photographs can be viewed on our Videos and Photo Gallery pages.  

We have been flying UAVs on a professional basis since early 2013, and prior to this we filmed and photographed from the air using DSLR cameras and a helicopter or Cessna aircraft.   We combine 25 years' experience in professional photography and 20 years' experience in private aviation piloting with the latest technology in UAVs.  We currently use the following UAVs:

  • ​​DJI Inspire 2 (dual control) with X4S camera
  • ​DJI Mavic 2
  • ​DJI Phantom 4 Pro
  • ​DJI S800 Evo Hexcopter (dual control) with Sony Nex5
