Aerial stock photography and video :
quick overview of HOsiHO
Who are our contributors?
The artists who make their contents available on HOsiHO are all recognized experts for the quality of their work, both technically and artistically. Distributed all over the world, they feed our collection throughout the year and can take pictures on demand if you don't find photos or videos that meet your needs.
If necessary, you can be put directly in touch with one of the members of the HOsiHO Drone Network (for France only), free of charge.
Finally, each author undertakes to strictly respect the laws of the countries in which the images were shot, and more particularly concerning the image rights of people or recognizable private property. For example, for France, it is necessary to justify appropriate training, to use approved drones and to be able to present a flight permit in the event of a check.
You can find out more about our aerial filmmakers by reading the interviews in which they present their work, their philosophy, their equipment and the assignments they are able to carry out.

Aerial stills and footage for feature films and commercials
The quality of our photos and videos is perfectly adapted to the needs of the motion picture professionals. It is therefore entirely possible for you to integrate shots of faraway countries into the editing process while controlling your production costs, to use timelapses that would take too much time to produce, or photos for the backgrounds of your shots.
If you have specific needs in the production of your film, you can call upon one of our contributors who will have the required equipment and qualifications to carry out the aerial or drone shootings under your supervision.
The same goes for the professionals of the advertising industry who are sometimes challenged by limited budgets or technical means.
Aerial photos and videos for journalists and documentary filmmakers
By using aerial photographs and drone footage, you will be able to perfectly illustrate your statements with high quality images. These types of photos and videos are particularly effective when it is necessary to have an overview of a situation, which is unfortunately often the case after an accident or a flood.
On this scope, documentary filmmakers will be able to provide a better understanding of the evolution of our world by comparing the same shot between two periods, and your reports and documentaries will be even more captivating.
