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.

Awesome Aerial Shots of Dublin


A shot from yesterday morning as the Royal Princess cruised into Dublin port. Aerial Photography Ireland were there to capture the enormity and beauty of its arrival over the weekend. Hailed as the Most Popular Cruise ship around, the Royal Princess is the world’s 10th Largest Passenger Ship so far, and holds an impressive 3,600 passengers. Swimming pools, outdoor cinemas and plenty of entertainment to keep you entertained out at sea.

Here’s a shot of the massive ship with the skyline of Dublin city in the background. Filmed in 4k, with our ever trusty s900 evo and Lumix GH4 team.

We are just as excited for the next few arrivals in the upcoming weeks.

Lovely Wicklow from our Drones!

Ok, so we’ve been pretty busy at API, so we’ve a backlog of shots and footage that we’ve yet to release on the blog. Here’s a shot from an aerial shoot back earlier in the year in Glendalough, Wicklow.

The weather was dramatically better back in early January than the recent stint we’ve been having the past few weeks. Lets hope brighter skies are on the way for this supposed “hottest ever summer” we’ve been promised. Ahem Ahem!!
