PixAir has been operating since 2012. We are based in Durban, South Africa but operate internationally. We fly and film with a dedicated team of highly competent individuals who love what they do. We believe that flying with a dedicated pilot and cameraman results in maximum precision when shooting. It’s more than just about us, but it’s about you and your story and helping you to tell it articulately.

Having built our unit from scratch, our equipment can be fully customised to handle a myriad of camera’s according to your budget. In addition our in-depth technical knowledge ensures that we are able to troubleshoot efficiently on remote locations. Our base unit includes state-of-the-art high tech features including a guided GPS system, fully stabilized 360 pan, tilt and roll camera mounts, wireless video feeds. Whether you require professional photographic stills, standard HD video or high-end cinema productions, we offer it all.

 

Hayes Cunningham (EyeGuy)

Cameraman

Hayes has always had an enquiring mind to find what makes people tick. He was born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and moved to South Africa at an early age. After studying both music and graphic design he has worked with many top agencies in London and South Africa.

After directing many video and photoshoots, he decided to pick up the camera and start shooting himself in 2006. He currently co-owns a successful advertising agency and design studio and has an insatiable appetite for building brands.

His clients have included Coca-Cola, Rio Tinto, Unilever, Sainsbury’s, Walt Disney and one occasion, had to turn down a luncheon with Nelson Mandela to make a deadline for his foundation. (Yes, deadlines are that important to him!). His extreme perfectionist nature allows him to focus on the details. To him it’s more than just filming a sequence or technical expertise, it’s about telling a story, provoking an emotion and creating an unforgettable experience.

Sebastian Meredith (FlyGuy)

Pilot

Sebastian grew up taking things apart and putting them back together. He has always had a technical mind and as the pilot the workings of our equipment comes naturally to him. His experience in the air-force has also added to his vast knowledge of flight and how UAV’s operate. In the field far away from any workshops or spares centers his expertise is vital to have on any shoot. Sebastian also studied Graphic Design and as a pilot he is able to understand each shot creatively and quickly understand what is required on complex shots. He is also able to add creativity to his technical abilities which is rare in this industry. As a result Hayes and Sebastian make a very powerful team when it comes to aerial video and photography.
