What we do – Aerial Photography and Video Services

High Eye Aerial Imaging Inc specializes in low altitude, high definition aerial imaging services, including aerial photography and aerial videography. We operate Three state of the art Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems: A Octo Copter VTOL system for inspection and volume reports, A DJI Inspire for HD video and photography, and a fixed wing Quest UAV for long endurance and larger surveying projects.

High Eye Aerial Imaging offers a cost effective alternative to manned aircraft for a variety of applications in the fields of engineering, construction, aggregates and mining, environmental planning and monitoring, agriculture, forestry, and inspection.

Our company is equipped to provide a variety of imaging options including 2D and 3D Ortho mosaics, DEM & DSM (Digital Elevation & Surface Models), aerial surveying, geographically referenced mapping, aerial photogrammetry, aerial topographical mapping, low angle obliques, and HD aerial photos and video from any angle. We are happy to work with your technicians to provide images that are compatible with your GIS and CAD systems.

High Eye’s working height ranges from head height to approximately 400 feet above ground, providing a perspective that is unattainable with conventional manned aircraft. In addition, we can capture the image you are looking for and provide either unedited photo or video footage, or completed video productions.


We are located in Wasaga Beach Ontario, on the south shore of Georgian Bay.

Our primary operation area is Southern Ontario, however our equipment is versatile and easily transported, which allows us to go where ever you want us to go!


Whenever you want! Providing the weather is acceptable for safe operations.

We are fully Certified Operators recognized by Transport Canada.

The only stipulation is if the flight zone is within 3 nautical miles of an aerodrome, we must provide a NOTAM 48 hours prior to operations.


With two state of the art, remote controlled aerial platforms that are loaded with leading edge technology, including GPS positioning, Auto pilot, Nav system, Brushless gimbal, and HD RGB and NDVI Cameras. Our systems capabilities allow us to set the exact position and altitude you want images to be captured from, with the ability to return to that same location and flight during our next visit.

The UAV pilot controls the flight of the UAV and monitors the pre-programed flight path to ensure that the Auto Pilot information is correct. Flight information (airspeed, altitude, compass heading, power consumption, etc.) is transmitted directly to a computer screen monitored by the Co-pilot.

The video camera functions are also controlled by the payload operator. The operator can view what the camera is capturing through a direct streaming video link to a separate monitor, or through first person video goggles.

The best part – you can be the director! You can view the same image as the camera operator (using the video googles or the monitor), maintaining a safe distance from the UAV. You can then direct the camera operator to capture the exact image or area of interest you want.
