What an amazing year it has been for the team at API. Following on from what was a very busy and exciting 2015, 2016 did not disappoint. In total the team completed 112 aerial shoots over 15 counties in Ireland, along with an unforgettable trip to the fabulous Dubai. On January the 6th we kick started 2017 with a construction shoot which was within the R15 airspace making it a busy start communicating with ATC every 15 minutes, enjoyable none the less! As we speak our 2017 showreel is underway, but before you get a glimpse of it here is a snap highlighting some of those great memories from 2016…

2016 Shoots API

Autumn Colours

First post in quite some time…

From sunrise to sunset, this one of kind location keeps on giving. These beautiful Autumn colours are on show at the magnificent Powerscourt Hotel. Our job was to capture the hotel in all it’s beauty, with it’s picturesque back drop, rolling hills and flawless landscaped gardens. If this picture is anything to go by…wait and till you see the video! Keep an eye out for it on Powerscourt Hotel’s website and social media sites.



What seemed like a one off trip last year in Dubai, has now turned into a yearly thing for the team at API. With the help from @epicfilmsdubai we were flown over to that fascinating country once again. This time round the scenery got even better, we were lucky enough to receive approval to operate around the one and only Burj Khalifa. The building is really a sight to behold, the sheer size of the building makes it almost impossible to capture it in one. However the Burj Khalifa wasn’t the main highlight of the shoot, it was to capture footage of two of the worlds best squash players while they battle it out at a specially made squash court situated at the edge of the Dubai Fountains. All in all it made for an extremely enjoyable day and one we will never forget, Dubai really is in a world of it’s own.

Amazing Drone Footage of Ireland’s First Rollercoaster

Check out our recent 4K footage from Tayto Park’s huge wooden rollercoaster. The Cú Chulainn Coaster, which reaches speeds of 100 km/h, features an inversion and a stomach-churning drop of 31 meters, and is the biggest of its kind in Europe. The ride is out of this world, and the drone footage ain’t too bad either…

Possibly Our Best Aerial Footage Around Ireland

Winner Winner.  Aerial Photography Ireland are out and about again. This week we were completely blown away by some of the fantastic footage we recently shot, whilst filming along the West coast of Galway, with Inishboffin and Inishshark. With a combination of the rugged landscape, the clearest turquoise blue waters, the friendliest crew and (surprise surprise) beautiful sunshine, it was a dream shoot!

We can’t WAIT to share some of the amazing footage in the upcoming months, but for now heres a lovely picture of herself against the stunning backdrop of Inishboffin

Happy Flying…
