Welcome to one of the worlds largest online collections of oblique aerial photographs of the UK.
The image library contains thousands of aerial photographs of England Scotland and Wales , UK including some stunning aerial photographs of London. I am uploading new views all the time. Even in the recession I am shooting vast numbers of images with 50,000 in 2013 and another busy year ahead of us this year with my feet being on the ground very little of the time! Despite the recession 2013 was also very busy with new books being published and many new photographs and I have lots planned for 2014 and have just uploaded a whole new set of London aerial views. Webb Aviation is run by Jonathan C.K.Webb BA(Hons)DipM ARPS
Although based in the UK I also
work abroad, particularly in Germany. All the aerial
photographs in the picture library are free to view as
full page images and
available to purchase as prints or high resolution
digital files. I am currently shooting a huge
number of aerial photographs every year so there
are many more photographs in stock than online so it
is always worth emailing a special request. With 2 million
visitors per year my gallery is
one of the biggest and most popular
galleries in the world for free to view online
oblique aerial photographs of the UK.

An Englishman abroad
My German night aerial photographs have been in a recent series of articles in the Bild newspaper entitled is " Nachtflug über Leipzig / Köln / Halle " - Night flight over Leipzig / Cologne / Halle. The articles include a short resume under the title " Dieser Engländer machte die Fotos"! I have now published many of the images in 3 new German books: Cologne, Leipzig and Düsseldorf from above.

May 2008, The Royal Photographic Society have awarded me the distinction of Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. This is a great honor and is a little unusual in that it is based purely on my aerial photographic work and also unusual that I have gained the distinction of Associate without first having gained the distinction of Licentiate.
Technological revolution: I always use the latest and
best cameras In 2008 I bought
the Canon 1DS Mk III, Kenlabs KS-8 Gyro stabilizer
coupled with some pretty special lenses. With them I
can easily read many car numbers from 1500 feet
with the long lens photographs and can photograph in
complete darkness with my ultra fast lenses. From 2013 I
have been making further improvements with the new Canon
5dIII with even more detail and from Summer 2015 we will
be using the new 50MP Canon 5DS .

As a specialist in professional aerial photography I can produce a very high resolution image. Click here to see an example of my l aerial photography and here to see another full resolution sample but this time taken at night. I usually fly from Stapleford Aerodrome in Essex, providing specialist aerial photography in London and the South East, Wellesbourne aerodrome covering the midlands and Manchester, covering northern England and Edinburgh covering Scotland. I also have at least one aircraft in Wales. All Webb Aviation gallery images are taken by me , Jonathan C.K.Webb BA(Hons)DipM ARPS I am a specialist professional aerial photographer and undertake aerial photography surveys of a variety of subjects including; farms, plant , factories , farmland, schools, businesses, homes, archaeological sites, conservation projects building projects and land for development, providing traditional negative prints or digital images. Images can also be digitally manipulated to show proposed buildings or to tidy up unsightly parts of a property.
There have been articles about Webb Aviation Aerial Photography Picture Library in the Professional Photographer magazine , Bild Zeitung, Local life magazine and the Staffordshire Country Magazine as well as various newspaper and radio interviews. Our images can also be seen in numerous publications worldwide including books, magazines, post cards, advertising, film and TV .
Webb Aviation aerial photographers
is run by Jonathan CK Webb, who has been in
the UK aerial photography business since 1991.
While much of our work is commissioned oblique and
near vertical aerial photography surveys for
a wide range of blue chip U.K. commercial and
public sector clients we also run the gallery where
members of the public can browse for an aerial
photo of their house or street. I hope you will
enjoy looking through our image library as much as
I have enjoyed taking the photographs. I have been
pleasantly surprised at just how popular this has
been and we have a huge number of visitors ( up to
2 milion a year! ) from throughout the world,
especially ex pats looking up their old home towns
and students looking to see what real life is like
in the UK . My aerial gallery is a real picture of
British life, not just the chocolate box tourist
scenes. I show life as it really is from beautiful
York to the industrial North West of England with
its factories and terraced streets. I take our
aerial photographs flying at altitudes of 800 to
3000 feet ( in the United Kingdom it is not
allowed to fly below 500 feet) Our aerial views
are used for publishing, industrial site
management, property sales, construction progress
recording, boundary disputes, schematic maps* and
planning applications as well as just a
fascinating aerial picture to hang on the wall. As
well as the UK I also take aerial photographs in
Germany and have recently added a comprehensive
selection new aerial photos of German cities. I am
often flying over London and am currently adding a
lot of images to my London
To see the full selection of my UK aerial photographs visit my online gallery where you will find a vast number of aerial pictures including recent new photos of Manchester , Birmingham, Sheffield, Coventry, Leeds, Leicester, London, Oxford , Maidstone, Liverpool , Edinburgh Glasgow , Swansea , Cardiff , Sheffield, The Lake District , football stadiums , castles aerial archaeology and many more towns in the U.K. For the full selection you need to go to gallery and then select the county you are interested in , then from the county page select the appropriate town link. .
Please note that
due to the level of bad emails I delete unopened all emails
that do not say " aerial photographs " in the subject line
(well actually its just the word "aerial" that's needed as
then the email is put in a separate aerial inbox where I can
see it straight away! ) . Sorry, but unwanted email is now
at crisis level with over 100 bad emails to every genuine
Please note I am an
"etailer" and do not have a physical showroom or visitor
centre for my photographs.
