Toby Pocock

UAV Pilot, Managing Director

Toby Pocock UAV PilotToby has over 20 years commercial experiences in Marketing, Design with a BA Hons Degree from Reading University in Typography & Graphic Communication. He has also worked within Social/Digital Media, Photography & Film sectors. He is a qualified UAV drone Pilot and set up Skyvantage in 2012 when drone filming was a very novel concept.

“I was drawn to aerial filming when I first saw the possibilities of flying camera on drones. The results go well beyond those previously offered with Helicopters and Dolly rails and creatively it opens up many more options and gives the viewer a very different experience to static cameras filming at ground level”. Toby not only flies but is happy to plan/Direct the shoots with the creative brief and finished product very much in mind. “Skyvantage has remained at the top of the drone filming sector because we understand the creative art of film-making and photography. Many drone operators are purely skilled in flying but fail to understand what actually looks good on camera and how to achieve it. Our film creation and photography editing abilities also hopefully put our end product above most of the other drone filming companies in the market place”.
