About Kiwi

How it all started

Kiwi Aerial Shots is a Dutch drone company with more than seven years of experience. The founder of the company is Kim Hoogervorst. He started making aerial footage before the time you could buy a drone online. Kim Build the drones himself and with his self developed gimbals he was a true pioneer in the aerial footage business.

Today’s work with drones

Just as most of the drone companies, Kiwi Aerial Shots works with the DJI Inspire 2 drone. But to this day Kiwi also works with their self-made Octocopter to fly cameras like the ARRI Alexa and RED. Because of the experience Kiwi gained in the early years, the Kiwi team build a massive amount of technical knowledge that comes of use in every film production.

Kiwi Aerial Shots is a renowned Dutch drone company that delivers great aerial footage every time! read more about the company and the Kiwi team on the about Kiwi page.

Drone video Service

At Kiwi Aerial Shots we now have more than seven years of drone experience and therefore we can offer a wide variety of drone services.

We make 360º VR footage, we developed a unique 1800W LED light we can put underneath our Inspire 2 drone and we offer a possibility to set up a complete video production including storytelling, director, production and post-production including animation.

360º VR drone footage

The latest trend is 360º drone footage. Kiwi Aerial Shots has been working with this technique from the beginning and is therefore experienced in setting up these kinds of 360º drone productions. These kind of images provide a whole new perspective on aerial footage and an interactive possibility that is completely new! At kiwi Aerial Shots we work with the latest equipment to get the best, high-resolution 360º images. Read everything about this on our 360º drone video page.

Next to our drone film services we always work on new innovative projects in our workshop. A unique project we are currently working on is a 1800W LED light which we can mount underneath an Inspire 2 drone. This flying light source has a unique lighting effect and casts moving shadows like you’ve never seen before. Read everything about our drone lighting technique and on our drone LED lighting page.

Besides drone pilots our professional drones are fully licensed as well. We always come with an extra backup drone and our pilots have complete technical knowledge of the equipment they work with.

Drones, cameras en lenses

At Kiwi Aerial Shots we always work with professional equipment in terms of drones, cameras, and lenses. This way we can always offer the best possible aerial image quality to fit the rest of the production.

Drones – DJI Inspire 1, Inspire 2 and Octocopter

At the moment we work with a DJI Inspire 1, the DJI Inspire 2, the Matrice600 and our own Octocopter storm drone. We have a backup drone that we always take with us for every drone shoot. The octocopter is a drone we can fly within the most extreme weather conditions and the best High-end cameras as an Arri Alexa or RED. Read everything about our drones on our Technical drone page.

Cameras en lenses – X5s, X7, ARRI Alexa and RED Raven

To always get the right image quality for every product it’s important to work with professional drone cameras like the X5s, the X7, the ARRI Alexa and the RED Raven camera. Next to these camera’s we also have a wide variety of camera lenses. read everything about our drone camera and lens options on our Technics page or more about our drone options with an ARRI Alexa and RED camera on our Kiwi page here.

Corporate video with drone footage

The last couple of years we’re making more and more company videos with drone footage. We do this for all kinds of companies like yacht builders, transport corporations etc. Next to drone footage, we can also set up the whole production including directors, actors, storytelling, and post-production. To set up the right production it’s good to know what the goal of the company video is, for instance is it a video for external or internal use? Below are some examples of different purposes for company videos.

Product or service video with drones

For such a company video it’s important to film the product or service in the best possible context. A good example of this is the yacht we filmed in for Oceanco in a perfect blue ocean. Check our corporate video portfolio to see some of the yachts we filmed for them with Mōvi and drone shots.


When we are talking about a video production for a TV commercial it’s often about showing the experience a product or service has to offer. Most of the time it’s also necessary to use text and give an explanation. At Kiwi Aerial Shots we have experience with setting up a script for commercials, having the directors roll, setting up the production and have the best editors and animators working on the post-production. You can read more information about our complete video production service you can read on our Production page.

Corporate video

A Corporate video is often used for internal use. The company wants to capture their brand values, their company culture and show their office. Capturing the office can be great using drone footage, depending on the location. Read more about our the corporate drone videos we make using drone footage on our Company video page.

Drone regulations

Drone regulations in the Netherlands are constantly changing. Like in most other countries there are Dutch drone regulations regarding the weight of the drones, the height, and locations you can or can’t fly. Also, there is a difference in drone regulations between private and commercial companies flying a drone. Contact us to get to know more about Dutch drone regulations or have a look at the Dutch CTR map where you can see all the Dutch no-fly zones for drones.

CTR zones – Drone no-fly zones

To know where you can or can’t fly a drone in the Netherlands it’s best to check the CTR map of the Netherlands. The map is indicated by the no-fly zones for drones including the reason why and who to contact for a possible exception. Most of the time the reason is an airport of Helipad from a nearby hospital. The airport could be a big airport like Schiphol but also a local small glider airport. Check the Dutch drone no-fly zone map here.

Drone ROC en ROC-Light

In the regulation of drones, the weight of the drone is really important. This is indicated by a ROC and ROC-Light. The ROC-light drones are drones with a weight of fewer than 4 kilograms. The ROC drones are drones that weigh more than 4 kilograms.
