Drone Videography Kent – Edith May Sailing Barge

The Edith May is one of only a handful of Thames Sailing Barges still in working order today. She was built in Essex in 1906, and today is docked at Lower Halstow in Kent.
Her current owners wanted to make a video of the barge’s first sail of the season for their Patreon supporters, as the barge costs a lot of money to maintain. They wanted footage from on board showing the work that goes on on-deck, and some aerial footage from my drones, to create an engaging video.
The weather was perfect on the day we chose, and I was able to get some lovely footage for the video. The aerial views offered a great sense of space, which can be difficult to appreciate from the ground (or water!), and of course showed the sailing barge off in all her beauty.
