Northlight Images provides a range of architectural photography services throughout the UK – with experience in the specialist fields of heritage and conservation.
We capture images of your conservation and restoration projects, where precise details require a permanent record.
Our extremely detailed, very high resolution images are way beyond the capabilities of traditional large format film based approaches – and are also quicker, more flexible and at a lower cost.
We can provide you with rectified, high resolution images you can import directly into CAD packages for stone identification saving you time, increasing accuracy and improving the visual impact of presentations.
We are able to offer you ultra high resolution, elevated survey photography from up to 8.5 metres. The benefit of using mast and pole photography rather than a drone is that you’ll received the same geometrically accurate, technically excellent shots as those taken at ground level and will avoid the increasing restrictions of flying drones in built up areas.
"You were happy to liaise with the site directly which was very helpful. It’s important we use photographers who are going to represent us professionally and it was very evident this was the case. Great pictures, very efficient and professional service."Clement windows - specialist heritage manufacturer
