I am a drone pilot and videographer with a passion for the outdoors, adventure and extreme sport. Coupling nearly a decade of both formal and freelance experience as a videographer with my love for electronics and engineering, becoming a drone pilot was a natural next step for me. My knowledge and experience as a videographer make me a better drone pilot. Getting the shot is my focus; the drone is my tool to get it. I’ve been fortunate to work on a range of great projects that have taken me to some really beautiful places. I think aerial imagery lends a powerful and dramatic perspective to any project and I always work hard to capture the right shot.
Kurt has been flying r/c for 26 years and is a multiple Provincial and National Champion. (F3A & LSA). He has been in the industry for years and know what videographers want and due to my vast experience he gets the shot first time. He has worked with all the top Production companies in South Africa and flown more than 200 TVC’s without a single failure. He is licensed for Multirotor as well as fixed wing.
With his years of advanced technical experience and extensive knowledge of lighting design, live sound reinforcement and videography, Martin ventured into the RPAS industry where his passions and skill meet visual creativity. He has captured some exhilarating moments, from wildlife and the natural world to sport, media and entertainment. When he’s not working on a production somewhere on the planet, he enjoys to spend time with his little family at home and chill on the sofa with his dog.
