The writer HG Wells once said: "For me London is the most interesting, the most beautiful, the most amazing city in the world." Sprawling on the banks of the Thames, the capital of England enchants us with its sights - Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower, numerous beautiful parks and avenues. But the real beauty of London can be appreciated from a bird's eye view, when all the "treasures" of the city are visible at a glance.
One of the world's most respected aerial photographers is British Jason Hawkes, whose photographs stun us with their scale and fantastic spectacle. Huge London, shimmering with a million lights, was photographed from a height at night. London, day and night, simply fascinates, you can capture really beautiful pictures on camera, flying in a helicopter, and which you do not even suspect when you are on the ground.
“I take night photographs with state-of-the-art digital cameras stabilized by one or two gyroscopes, depending on the camera format and optics I use,” says Jason Hawkes.
Jason claims that he enjoys aerial photography because it gives him the opportunity to see and show a familiar place from a completely different perspective.
The photographer works not only in London and the UK, but all over the world. Throughout his career, he has spent thousands of hours in flight, hunting the incredible landscapes of Norway, Colombia, Morocco and New York.
