About us

Who are we?

Drone Bulgaria - photography and video is the film crew of the company Book Boutique Ltd. We are a team of certified pilots of drones with permits for flights within the European Union. We have a fleet of drones and equipment for ground photographing and videotaping. Our portfolio includes dozens of projects - aerial videos of hotels, sites, tourist sites and buildings and promotional video spots, behind-the-scene videos, corporate videos and videos of events - conferences, corporate parties, exhibitions, presentations, photo shoots, product photography and more.
We combine modern technology with our striving for perfection and the result is excellent - satisfied clients and products that we are proud of.
But drones are our greatest passion - through their lenses we fly and see the world from above. This prompted us to realize of our most favorite project - video series "Bulgaria from Above", which which for several months made over half a million views online and made us a recognizable brand in the market of air video productions.

As in the real aviation safety comes first with the drones too. Although in the apparatus there is actually no man the inappropriate or risky use of drones could lead to accidents in the air or on the ground. We - Drone Bulgaria - photography and video - uncompromisingly comply with this and before every flight we make multiple checks to be absolutely sure of the safe performance before continuing with the flight.
We always strive to deliver the best possible commitment, but in the name of safety we and our customers are obliged to comply with:

 -  Weather conditions: we do not fly in rain and snowfall or wind over 6-7 meters per second

 -   Communication conditions: we do not fly with limited connection or overloaded frequencies


Indoor missions or in perimeter with multiple people are run with extreme care and pre-planning.

Project stages:

1. Before shooting:
- Clarification of the project and the type shooting - photo, video, aerial or combined;
- Clarification of the assignment: shooting only or photo / video post-production
- Clarification of the concept and / or script and shooting board, if any
- For larger projects it is better to do preliminary inspection of the location in order to select the most appropriate time for shooting, equipment, aircraft type, type of camera, etc., as well as to inspect for obstacles related to flight security
- Get permits or approvals for flights if necessary
2. Capture
3. Postproduction
