About Kurnia Aerial Photography

Founded in 2013 by Michael Kheng, Kurnia Aerial Photography is now an award winning provider of wide range of commercial aerial photography services. Being amongst the first commercial drone operators in the UK, Kurnia have a wealth of experience, and understanding, about drones and how to achieve the right shots.

With stills (up to 20.8 MP) and broadcast-quality video up to 5.2K in ProRes and CinemaDNG RAW. Our work is carried out using  'Drones' so we are able to work in areas that full size helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft cannot fly and consequently offer greater operational flexibility for low level work from 2ft to 400ft.

We hold a valid Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) permission (PfCO), CAA ID 287, to conduct aerial work and have public liability insurance for up to £5 million in place, both legally required to operate Drones within UK airspace.  Our PfCO also permits us to fly at night and we also hold a CAA OSC that permits us to fly closer than normal to objects that are not under our control and to within 75m of an organised assembly of 1,000 people or more that are not under our control.


We capture photographs and video from both the air and ground and work across many sectors. Our client base ranges from private individuals to multi national corporations. Whatever your filming requirements are we are happy to take look and find a solution.


First impressions sell so why not have that unique selling point by showing a potential purchaser a view of your property from the air. Not only do we supply still photographs but also can provide a short video fly around your property (subject to conditions and regulations).

We can provide an interactive 360 panorama so potential buyers can see the exact location of your property.




We offer a wide range of services for the commercial sector.

Not only can we provide photographs and videos to help in the sale or letting of a property but we can also carry out aerial surveys quicker and cheaper than conventional methods..

We also film from the ground as well as the air and can produce bespoke corporate videos to promote your business.



We are pleased to be suppliers to the BBC and other major networks and independent production companies.

We are happy to work alone on location or with a producer/director.

We can output live streams from our drones to enable news services to provide live aerial footage via their Sat trucks.





Ranging from personal to broadcast photography and videography, we have created impact and stunning work for our clients. Here is a selection of some of our work.

One important part of our job is to regularly maintain and test our drones, especially after any firmware update.

We are fortunate to have the use of some open farmland so have a secure, safe environment to test or drones in. It also gives us the opportunity to try different moves and settings.

This image was taken on our last test session. With virtually no wind the conditions were perfect and views fantastic.
