You seem to have jumped the stage of whether his opinion would be valuable to you. Start by identifying expert witnesses who have recognised standing in this particular field. There is the 'UK Register of Expert Witnesses' at http://www.jspubs.com for example.Emulated wrote:I have 2 aerial photos about 1947 and 1970 which I need to be viewed by an expert in aerial photos to give me a clue to the boundary position. I was given the name of one person but he wanted 4 best quality pics from each CD and would only tell me it costs £140.00 +vat an hour to look and give his written opinion. How long would it take I asked? As long as it takes was the reply. Gee Whiz. Anybody know anyone who could help me?
However rogue 'experts' might still try to blind you with science and attempt to use aerial photographs taken eg from a low flying plane that can therefore give a distorted view.
Ordnance Survey department in Southampton used to have reliable experts but I think there have been changes there.
In a boundary dispute aerial photographs can be useful but are unlikely to resolve issues on their own.

I think I could*, and give you a fair appraisal of what I see but I don't have RICS after my name, which I'm fairly sure would be needed if this ends in court.Emulated wrote:. Anybody know anyone who could help me?
Additionally, anyone viewing the photos should ideally be the same person viewing all the relevant paperwork and visiting the site.
