Don’t miss our informative Guest on the 27th. July

Phil Burnham pilot & drone operator and DOP is our guest speaker at 7 Victor st - Chatswood

Phil’s career as a drone pilot has been forged through the integration of two of his passions, photography and aviation. He got into photography at a very early age, and has been running Exposed Monkey photography for 6 years. He was flying solo from the age of 16, and holds a Gold Glider Pilot certificate, a Helicopter pilot’s license and a UAV controllers certificate.

His first forays into remotely piloted aircraft comprised of a never ending cycle of flying, crashing and repairing a remote controlled helicopter, he then progressed to building a number of larger multi-rotors which he used on a hobby basis, before starting work in the industry 3 years ago. Phil still builds (and races) small quad-copters, but all his filming is done on DJI and Freefly Systems drones these days.

He has previously worked as a pilot and camera operator at Coptercam and Rotorworks, and is currently Aerial DP for Swarm UAV.

His has worked on a host of TVCs, TV and film productions, including: Home and Away, Sydney New Years fireworks, Channel V, Royal Caribbean, Jacob’s Creek, Junior State of Origin, WSL World Tour, Fox Sports, Fuel TV, Destinations NSW, BMW, Mazda, Subaru, Jeep, Toyota and the Discovery Channel.
