London from Above, at Night


Jason Hawkes takes absolutely stunning aerial photographs of London from onboard helicopters. He makes the city look like a gorgeous techno jewel that one only used to see in Japanese sci-fi anime.

Shooting aerial photography during the daytime had its own difficulties, you are strapped tightly into a harness leaning out of the helicopter, shouting directions through the headsets to the pilot. If shooting in the day can be difficult, night and the lack of light causes its own set of problems, but overcoming them is half the fun and the results can be stunning. I shoot at night using the very latest digital cameras, mounted on either one or two gyro stablazied mounts, depending on the format of the camera and length of lens I’m having to use.

The teeny photo above doesn’t do these photos justice. Click on the link to see 18 more monitor-pleasing large photos.
