If you’re located in the Newcastle Upon Tyne region, including Northumberland, Hexham, and County Durham, and you’re considering hiring a drone for professional videography, you might be wondering about the costs to hire a drone photographer in Newcastle. In the drone industry, prices can fluctuate widely depending on a variety of factors. Some businesses charge half-day or full-day rates, but it’s worth noting that these aren’t your only options.
Many clients are surprised to learn that an efficient drone operation may not take an entire half or full day. For example, the shooting and editing process might be completed within just an hour. Therefore, hiring a company that charges hourly can often provide a much more cost-effective solution.
At Drone Studio North East, the need for this efficiency and flexibility has been recognised, which is why I charge on an hourly basis. My standard rate is £125 per hour which covers both shooting and editing. This approach ensures you pay only for the time it takes to get the job done, which is a significant advantage if your project doesn’t warrant a half or full day commitment.
However, I also understand that different projects come with unique requirements, and some (most) often require a more extensive commitment in terms of time, effort and content. That’s why I offer a variety of packages available on our pricing pages. These packages have been designed to cater to the diversity of our clients’ needs, from the number and type of shots to the level of editing required (whether it’s basic or more advanced).
The process of pricing drone videography isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. It depends on numerous factors such as your specific needs, the location, the complexity of the shots, the intended use of the footage, and the post-production requirements. For example, some basic colour-grading will be a lot quicker and cheaper than if you required complex motion graphics overlayed onto the footage.
As such, the packages have been carefully constructed to provide options and potential savings for those who have a clear understanding of their needs.
However, if you’re not certain about the exact specifics of your drone requirements or you’re new to this area, don’t worry! The easiest way to get an accurate quote tailored to your needs is simply to contact me directly. Just provide some details about what you’re looking for and, if possible, reference any examples on the website that you particularly like. I’ll be more than happy to walk you through the options and find a solution that aligns with your vision and budget.
