Jason Hawkes says: “Each time I fly over London I notice the landscape constantly changing, new developments seem to appear overnight.”
Jason Hawkes has covered subjects around the world, but specializes in aerial shots of the London. Once more, he’s been kind enough to share some of his recent photos with us here.
From Jason: “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.”
