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…
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.
It’s been a very busy February for the team at API, last week alone we carried out 4 aerial shoots in 4 days. These consisted of a marathon at night, a jetpack man…..yes they actually exist, a waterfall and to top it off a very well know government building…Leinster House. Attached below are some snaps…

2015 was a very successful and memorable year for API with some unforgettable trips. The team at API would like to thank everyone for all their support over the past year and wish you all the best for 2016. Attached below is our new showreel for 2016 recapping on some of the best moments, we hope you all enjoy, Happy New Year!
Delighted with the coverage and press we got for our little promo video we shot for the lovely guys at Blarney Castle. As part of our regular monthly series of work with the landmark attraction, we put together a little teaser of whats on offer down in Cork.
The purpose of the video would be to showcase not just the castle itself but the wonderful acres of gardens and nature that surround the famous landmark. As seen in the video, at the top of the castle lies the Stone of Eloquence, better known as the Blarney Stone. Tourists visiting Blarney Castle can hang upside-down over a sheer drop to kiss the stone, which is said to give the gift of eloquence. Needless to say we’ve kissed the stone numerous times!!!
Extensive gardens surround the castle. There are paths touring the grounds with signs pointing out the various attractions such as several natural rock formations which have been given fanciful names, such as Druid’s Circle, Witch’s Cave and the Wishing Steps. The grounds also include a Poison Garden which hosts a number of poisonous plants, including wolfsbane, mandrake, ricin, opium and cannabis!
Since posting the video last week, its clock up over 250,000 views on social media with the likes of Tourism Ireland sharing it on their page.

Ever wanted a Drone wedding photograph? September 11th, 2015API
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…

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
