Creativity Assisted by Drones in Marseille since 2011 !

Our drones and expertise, at your disposal in Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, Cannes, French Riviera and Valence, since more than 13 years.

Even before being an UAV operator, we used to do aerial filming and photography of our beautiful city of Marseille and the surroundings of Provence, from helicopters and planes!

Based since 2011, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, we radiate in Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur region! So there are few places that have escaped our professional drones, video or still cameras!

With Drone-Pictures, you will first meet professionals drone pilots and cameramen dedicated to aerial cinamatography, but you will also work with a motivated team of creative passionate both by their profession and Provence. Because we love and live all the seasons of this territory, as beautiful as vast, as extraordinary as varied, as well known as coveted!

A knowledge of the places and a particular relation to this region which will help to be a major asset during the preparation of a ground or aerial assignement (sites choice, scouting, paperwork) or when it comes the time to decide about how to fly and film, choosing the best angles or the right focal lengths!  

Better than words, images!

Customers and experiences

With 13 years old, our company have won and kept the trust of many companies, audiovisual producers, as well as many French and international television channels (Germany, USA, UK, Japan, Sweden, Danemark).

We often work on TV and feature films, documentaries, corporate films or technical recordings such as 3D modeling of buildings or quarries. 

Versatility isn't an empty word for Drone-Pictures, even if our heart clearly beats on the audiovisual side!

We are also producer of short films as shown here with one of our productions for the CMA-CGM, a world leader in maritime fret, or this aerial and ground video shot for OXY at the Mucem, in Marseilles, and this video on the ITER site in April 2022 which gives an account of the progress of this pharaonic project which holds so much hope for humanity! (Don't miss the two virtual tours in 360° photography made for ITER Organization in Cadarache).

The sea, especially the Mediterranean, is omnipresent on our images, and for some very good reasons: whether it is NBC for the arrival at the port of a gigantic cruise ship (or Costa Crruises& Silversea), whether it is Colas for the follow-up of a building site at the GPMM, or Eolfi, for the offshore recovery a beacon, or Central Ocean for the unloading of a semi-submersible boat at Marseille's bay, or the follow-up of a sailboat with Brigitte Fossey for a TV movie France 3, and the epic pursuit off Fos-sur-mer of the Pelican tanker for Norsepower, our drones like water, salty, brackish or freshwater, as for the CNR or the German televisions - ARD in 2016 / ZDF in 2019 -  for whom we filmed a Rhone river cruise, from Lyon to Arles/Avignon !

In 2022, we were often on the water and on a boat to fly our drones, as for example: this shooting for Quiet Oceans between La Ciotat and Fos-sur-mer, and the arrival of a submarine cable in Marseille and Barcelona, or the production of this clip for a boat rental company in Cassis and this very special mission consisting in photographing the 12 kilometers of the Marseille waterfront. Last but not least, we ended last year shooting for the Fred's Last Resort series in Cassis and Marseille (produced by Betty TV for Channel 4), mainly above the mediterranean sea!

In 2023, we are continuing with our trend of producing turnkey videos, this time with two films produced for TotalEnergies and its subsidiaries, one for FOST and the other for DAJA160, which carried out the construction of the shaded areas on the ITER site. In the spring, we delivered this film produced for Inéo/Equans. In February, we had a great experience with drone services, flying over the Orange Vélodrôme stadium in Marseille, for a VR360 film produced by Novelab for the Orange group.
The sea, again, with a film about a marine and ecological innovation by the Marseille start-up V2O Marinefilmed in Marseille bay.

Added to this are films for Travaux du Midi on the BA115 air base at Orange-Caritat, a film for Groupe La Poste on its platform at Vitrolles, near Marseilles, and for SNCF-Réseau, filmed in Avignon and near Miramas.

Great shots and delivered everything I needed

Muhamed KHATTAB, MK MEDIA

Sami and Jerome were a pleasure to work with, they were very accomodating with the tough schedule and last minute booking of the shoot. The footage they shot was incredible, and both have a great creative eye. If we ever need a similar service, they will be the first people we call!

Joe O'SULLIVAN, ILLUMINATE AGENCY

Great service, great people and even greater images!

Lydia MUTSCHMANN, DOCLIGHTS GMBH

Really happy with the end result, Sami was very professional throughout. We weren't sure if the weather would hold out, but risked it and luckily it didn't rain for us.

Lucy EDMONDS, EVENTOPEDIA MEDIA LTD

We appreciated the proactive attitude towards mechanical and different permit preparations Drone Pictures had. Also the changing operating conditions and schedules during the campaign were handled professionally. The adaption to required flight profile for emission measurements was quickly learnt by pilots and operations were successful.

Matti IRJALA, AEROMON

Sami and his team were excellent. We wanted to capture footage of a large ship at sea. We didn't make this easy for Sami and things were never a problem. Great shots, much appreciated.
