Soaring Over Yorkshire: Aerial Filming in the Heart of England’s National Parks

Breathtaking landscapes, dramatic skylines, and exquisite natural beauty – these are the features that make Yorkshire not just a county but a cinematographer’s dream. At Aerial Picture Company, we are privileged to have our roots in this picturesque part of the UK, and we’re excited to take you on an aerial journey of our home, Yorkshire.

Famous for its national parks, Yorkshire is like a vast, open-air studio waiting to be explored. Each location offers a unique backdrop for film, TV and commercial projects, from the wild, untamed beauty of the North York Moors to the rolling hills and lush valleys of the Yorkshire Dales. And the best way to capture these majestic vistas? Aerial filming, of course!

At Aerial Picture Company, we’ve been soaring above the spectacular scenery of Yorkshire for years, delivering high-quality aerial footage for a diverse range of productions. Our sophisticated drones, armed with the latest technology, allow us to capture every inch of this stunning county from a perspective that only birds usually enjoy.

We are proud to have worked on notable series such as Sky’s ‘Landscape Artist of the Year’, where our drone footage offered a fresh perspective on some of Yorkshire’s most picturesque landscapes. Equally, on BBC’s ‘Great British Railways Journeys’ and ‘Winter Walks’, our drones soared above historic railways, ancient pathways, and frost-kissed landscapes, providing viewers with a captivating visual experience.

But it’s not just the natural beauty of Yorkshire that makes it an exceptional location for aerial filming. It’s the endearing and hardy spirit of Yorkshire folk that brings warmth to our hearts, and after a day of filming, nothing beats unwinding at a cosy local pub with a pint of traditional Yorkshire bitter.

Whether it’s capturing the rugged charm of a centuries-old castle, the hustle and bustle of a vibrant cityscape, or the serene tranquillity of a hidden valley, our passion for aerial filming is only matched by our love for Yorkshire.

With a fleet of state-of-the-art drones to suit all kinds of shoots, we can provide aerial footage of unmatched quality, taking your project to new heights – literally and figuratively. And it’s not just about delivering spectacular visuals; our team of experienced pilots and film and TV professionals understand the complexities of storytelling and work with directors and producers to ensure every shot enhances the narrative.


Yorkshire is a land of breathtaking beauty and diverse landscapes, where history, culture and nature blend seamlessly. It’s a filmmaker’s paradise, and we consider ourselves fortunate to call it home. At the end of the day, when the drones are packed away, there’s no place we’d rather be than here, toasting to another successful shoot over a pint of the finest local bitter.

At Aerial Picture Company, we’re not just flying drones but capturing Yorkshire’s soul, one frame at a time. Join us on this journey, and together, let’s make magic in the skies over Yorkshire.
