Photo Elevate Mast and Drone Equipment

Trailer mast Clark elevated photography aerial photographer Essex Mitsubishi Delica


Our flagship is built around a Mitsubishi Delica which is best described as a 4x4 all-terrain multi-purpose vehicle. Our Delica is modified from standard with additional underbody protection, additional lighting, wide all-terrain pattern tyres, and multiple tow hitches. We can deliver our 100ft trailer mounted mast, and demountable 50ft mast and drone systems to almost any location.

The interior of the vehicle has been customized to provide a mobile studio and control center. It is fitted with a split charge battery system and 220v inverter to power onboard equipment. Our state of the art computer system controls all mast and camera functions remotely. We also incorporate Photoshop editing facilities and we can print images on site if required.

Clients are welcome on board to view live images and provide input or direction for their desired shots.


We use pneumatically operated telescopic mast systems ranging in height from 25ft, 50ft, and 100ft versions depending on the application needed. These have fewer restrictions and limitations than drones and are ideal in areas where it is not safe or legal to fly. Such as congested or sensitive locations. We have full ground control of cameras including pan, tilt, zoom, shutter, live view. 

Our 100ft pneumatic trailer mounted mast which is one of the tallest in the country. 

It is used when photographing large sites, line of sight surveys, and tall structures.

We have two 50ft pneumatic masts, one that fits onto the vehicle or a tripod for general use where extreme heights are not required.

Our second 50ft pneumatic mast is attached to a customised electric buggy, which provides rapid deployment of equipment in locations where vehicle access is restricted, ideal for golf courses, leisure parks, and inside large buildings.

We also have a 25ft push up tripod mounted pole, ideal for quick response and low level roof inspections.

Our camera of choice for mast work is Canon with a selection of Canon and Sigma wide-angle / telephoto lenses for all occasions.

Unlike many other companies, our photographers have the capability to use DSLR cameras at heights up to 100ft. Our preferred choice is DSLR cameras these offer a far higher image quality than any hybrid or compact camera. They also provide the option to shoot in RAW format with over a billion more colours. We also use when necessary Canon PowerShot cameras.
