HOsiHO is home for professional aerial cinematographers
shooting legally stunning aerial images !
Since 2014, we aggregate highly-curated collections of stunning aerial images legally shot,
that we distribute worldwide through HOsiHO.com
We would be proud to represent your best aerial videos, whether taken by drone, helicopter, microlight, airplane or even a balloon, provided they are duly authorised by local regulations!
Our clients want stock footage that show the essence of every location from above!
We always need any aerial image showing World heritage: the most beautiful landscapes, towns, villages, cities and monuments.
Filmed at all seasons, at the most beautiful hours with new and dramatic angles (drone effect for example, or Cineflex).
All major and secondary sites and landmarks, plus all outdoor activities.
News topics are not required unless they have long-term selling potential (e.g. for archive footage).
We are also fond of images representing concepts such as:
- Beauty in Nature
- Pollution and Climate Change
All those conceptual images can be shot anywhere and are highly in demand by our buyers.
