About Up&Up | Professional Drone & Videography Services in Auckland, NZ
Up&Up offers professional, premium drone photography & film services. We are based in Auckland but regularly travel for work.
Hi. I’m Chris Street and I founded Up&Up as I have a passion for both photography and technology. Working in digital advertising for many years I’ve always been exposed to latest and greatest in new technology and have been fascinated by drones - or quadcopters as they were originally known - for a number of years.
After purchasing my first drone I was immediately hooked, and I knew my passion was soon going to become a profession. Whether it’s capturing epic scenery from my honeymoon, memorable photos from friends special events or professional real estate or wedding drone photography, I love producing beautiful, creative images.
Doing the same as everyone else doesn’t interest me. I like to pursue bespoke, memorable work and keep improving along the way.
I am a CAA certified UAV pilot and have Liability Insurance to cover my flights. I choose to fly a DJI Phantom 4 Pro and DJI Mavic Pro to get the best balance between picture quality and portability.
For our ground camera operations I shoot with the amazing Panasonic Lumix GH5, usually on a Crane 2 Gimbal to keep things super steady. I also have audio gear, monitors, lights and a bunch of other toys to bring it all together.
