A British company called is now marketing a kit for taking aerial photos without an aircraft.

It's essentially a Canon G6 digital camera that mounts on the end of a collapsible aluminum mast stabilized by a tripod and guy ropes. The mast telescopes to a height of 53 feet, and the camera can be tilted and rotated through 360 degrees. It works tethered to a laptop which is manned at ground level.

The whole kit can be transported in a car, and it can be unpacked and assembled in six minutes, according to the company.

The web site has many pictures of the apparatus itself as well as a large number of aerial photos taken with it. We were a bit surprised at how many of the aerial shots look like they were taken from a much higher elevation than 53 feet.
