I just wanted to let you know that my husband was blown away by the gift. Our little boys woke him up first thing yesterday and handed him the wrapped frame. The expression on his face seeing it was priceless. We had a look at some of the other images on your website together. Will definitely be purchasing some more. Thank you again for this excellent product and service.

"Dave is an exceptional professional from start to finish. His outstanding communication and organisation in the lead up to our wedding enabled us to relax and enjoy the day! The drone footage that he captured is breathtakingly beautiful and will be incorporated perfectly into our both our wedding stills and short film. Dave liaised with Jack Rabbit Vineyard and provided all stake holders with permits indicating his flight path and locations for take off and landing with plenty of time to spare. He was exceptionally discreet and we would not have known he was there on the day apart from the gorgeous footage supplied in a very timely manner. We cannot thank Kestrel Media enough"!

“We had a promotional video made for our cottages by Kestrel Media and were extremely happy with the results. Their commitment to detail, the impressive array of drone technology and knowledge of astrophotography really made our video pop! They worked tirelessly to get the job done. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to make an aerial video”.

Leigh @beargully, Bear Gully Coastal Cottages, Jan 2019



“We were initially so impressed by Kestrel Media's Wilson's Promontory video that we decided to use them to shoot our new Promotional Videos for our cottages.

“Holly and I were fortunate enough to win a wedding video drone package from Kestrel Media. For those unsure as to wether to budget in video for your special day, take it from us.... Please do it!! These guys went above and beyond to capture the essence and magic of our day. They got something that pictures along can’t obtain. From scenic panorama drone vistas, all the way down to close up personal expressions that always seem to draw a tear from your eye, David gave us a perfectly captured moment that we’ll share for the rest of our lives".

Scott & Holly Bastian, Oct 2017


“I hired Kestrel Media to produce a promotional video for a winery for sale in Bendigo. Dave went above and beyond what was expected, producing a detailed, informative and visually beautiful video which presented our property in its best possible light. I can highly recommend Kestrel”.
