Geoff and Pam have a passion for outstanding photography and have been running a successful photography studio, Pam Hutchinson Photography, for over 25 years. Our clients include large corporates, government organisations and non-profits, as well as small to medium enterprises.

Barwon Drone Photography was established to meet the booming demand from our clients for high quality aerial photography and videos

We have the experience and in house studio capabilities to bring you high quality imagery to suit whatever brief you have for us.


Our drone operator, Geoff, has registered his intention under the sub 2KG class RPAS CASA Notification ID 11204. We have full Public Liability Insurance ($10 million cover) Australia wide.

We conduct a risk assessment and JSA (Job Safety Analysis) for every shoot we attend, offering peace of mind for our clients.

You may require copies of risk assessments and proof of insurance (Certificate of Currency) and these are available to you once you engage our services.


We utilise some of the very latest drone technology. Our daily driver is the DJI Phantom 4 Pro.
We can shoot images up to 20 megapixel, and 4K/60fps video using this nimble little drone.
