About Us

Aerial Capture Specialists

From beginnings in 2017, The Good Drone Co is a collaboration between seasoned professionals of both cinema and industrial works of the drone industry.

We aim to use our technical abilities to provide solutions that were once difficult or impossible to provide in the past. We are dedicated to working with our clients to use new technologies and drones to capture images and data in an effective and efficient way.

Once a process that involved rigging, jibs, cranes, helicopters and booms, our imaging services are faster, more safe and more malleable than traditional capture methods.


Emily Avery

With over 8 years of experience within the drone industry, Emily is our leader in creating an innovative drone and creative solutions company. She handles everything from directing technical operations to piloting our aerial imaging platforms. 

Emily is known for her smile and passion. She's always looking for new ways to tackle projects and is a hands on leader with everything she's involved in. If you say it can't be done, she'll try it for herself. In a good way she's actually quite stubborn... 

While her experience in the industrial space capturing level views, conducting VESI qualified drone powerline inspections and providing 3D mapping is impressive, she's a creative at heart. With a vast resumé in real-estate, advertising and campaign work, she's like the result of Picasso creating a Swiss Army knife.

Emily's passion for industrial and creative capture is matched by her enjoyment of sports and the outdoors. If she's not on the sticks of a drone you can find Emily at the football field as the coach of the premier women's seniors team of the Kew football club.
