Kiwi Aerial Shots





Kiwi Aerial Shots, a Dutch drone company that was founded over eight years ago by Kim Hoogervorst and Willem de Groot, therefore Kiwi! The foundation of it all was the fascination and technical challenge to build stabilized flying cameras in a time that drones didn’t exist. Because of these early insights, we are now a true specialist and market leader when it comes to professionals aerials as we still work from our passion for beautiful images and awesome technics.

In the last decade, Kiwi grew slowly and to be honest, we would like to keep it this way. We love to work from a small professional team that cooperates smoothly in every decision and challenge. Professional pilots, technical custom rig builders and true wizards of the post-production. We only work with the best so we can always go for maximum results!

Globally active

Fully certified drone company

ROC-Light and RPA-L certified pilots

The Dutch drone regulations are constantly changing and not always as clear as one would want them to be. At Kiwi we are always up to date about the latest Dutch drone laws and we know exactly what’s possible or where to get the needed permissions. Both our drones and pilots are fully certified and because we work with our own RPA-L certified drone pilots we have access to parts of the airspace that are forbidden for others. Next to all the needed certificates and licenses, both our company as well our own people are fully insured. This affirms a peace of mind on every film location.

We love big productions

Cruising through Amsterdam and Rotterdam with our own custom build 22K RED MONSTRO rig for 310 degrees footage.


We are constantly working on a custom project in our workshop in Amsterdam. Let us know if you have a unique groundbreaking project in mind that will push the limits!

Helicopter Cineflex shoots

Next to the drone shots we also love to set up helicopter productions. For these, we mostly use the Cineflex Elite system with the RED Dragon setup.

Years of experience

With all the experience we have, we are known with communicating with the DoP or director and share our thoughts with them to get best possible shots.
