Talk to Us






Upshot has grown from its early days providing ground based aerial photography into the UK’s top aerial imaging business which also provides a range of Products, Services and Solutions to international clients across government, military, blue chip, institutional, corporate and private clients.

The Founding Directors brought many years’ experience working at senior level in both the Insurance, Telecoms, Banking, Financial, Consulting and Facilities Management industries together, to provide clients with a long term partner that could provide rapid deployment and ground based solutions for communication, surveillance and inspection purposes without the cost and inconvenience of trying to deliver those facilities in house.

During the last decade, Upshot has grown largely through referral to operating internationally a large fleet of sophisticated aerial photography vehicles, UAV’s and ROV’s as well as providing a range of products including telecoms infrastructure and CCTV units. Upshot has expanded its southern UK base to offices in London and representatives worldwide.
