Hello from the sunny south coast - Portsmouth

Hi all,

I’m fairly new to the group, been a bit of a lurker really! I started off with a Mini SE a couple of years ago and then upgraded to a Mini 3 Pro. A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to a Mavic 3 Pro and it is amazing!

I’m enjoying making some videos and editing them. Any photography or filming locations would be very much appreciated.

Hi @Thom - another of the ever growing number of members in the Portsmouth area, I see from your profile. :+1:

Edited the thread title to reflect this - and as a result you may get more interaction from people in your area.


Hey Thomas @Thom Welcome to GADC from a fellow Pompey resident…I’m in North End right next to Alexandra Park!

Hi Andy,

I’m in Hilsea, close to Foxes Forest.

Hey Thom @Thom I was over your way getting some footage with my Air 3 when they were demolishing the old News Centre. Also, at the same time I filmed the disused Hilsea Lido…so now I’m hoping to be able to have some ‘before and after’ footage now that it’s being refurbished.

Hi Andy,

Did you do that for Hughes & Salvidge? I did mean to get some footage of the Lido coming down and do similar, but I didn’t get round to it.


Hey Thom @Thom I only fly as a hobby not commercially. I did, however, get footage of all their demolition machinery in action. I’m hoping to return and capture more footage once construction starts…exactly the same as the Lido.

Eventually, I’m going to compile a video of each project and post them on my YouTube channel…but to be honest, editing is not my forte so it may take me a while!
