Now being uploaded, the highest resolution civilian aerial photographs of Birmingham ever taken, and that's no Bull !
Lots of aerial photographers have shot the Bullring, I decided to go one better and shoot the bull. The above is a 100% crop from one of my new 21 megapixel Canon 1DS mkII with gyro stabilized and image stabilized ultra long lens. Shot from thousands of feet in the air while moving at 100 mph. Click here to see the whole image. NB these are all very compressed to JPEG 3, the original is even better.
(2009 images also available and are even more detailed )
I fly regularly to Birmingham and
have special clearance to fly within the Birmingham Air
traffic control zone so if you would like a specially
commissioned image taken to exactly your requirements then
email me or can also take click here
for a guide to specially commissioned bespoke aerial
photography prices. With commissioned work I can take
close up images to your specific directions often focusing
on just a single building. I am now on the treadmill of
digital photography with regularly updated DSLR cameras so
commissioned work will always be on the latest and
greatest camera. Currently I seem to be buying a Digital
DSLR camera body every year or two. Most photographs for
2005 were done on the Canon 20D which I have had specially
set up by Canons technical people to optimize image
resolution for aerial photography. New images and
commission work for 2006 & 2007 were done on a
Canon 5D (those with aa or ba reference numbers) and 2008
to 2010 were on the 21 Megapixel Canon 1DS mkIII. More
important than the camera are the lenses and I have the
very best lenses money can buy. There is more info on my
equipment page ( click
here ) . If shooting a close up / long lens shot its
quite amazing what will show up. Here are some full sized
samplesto show the detail (from the newer images ).
There are also two full sized samples on the St Patricks Day Parade gallery above. If your computer struggles with the large images, here is a zoom in section of one of the very long lens images;
I would also like to take the opertunity to give a big thank you to the Birmingham air traffic controlers who were very very very helpfull in the making of these images ! :o)

I've been working at Aerial photographers Webb Aviation for some years now and have quite extensive stock aerial photographs of other towns & cities in the UK - just go to the main aerial photograph gallery to browse through my work, county by county and town by town. I am currently shooting around 10,000 aerial photos a year so the collection is growning rapidly. I have quite a lot of images I want to add to this Birmingham gallery but they are very time consuming to prepare and turn into web pages so it may take a while, indeed I seem to be shooting at a greater rate than I can add stuff to the web.
Unfortunately I am plagued with hundreds of bad emails every day so when writing to me please put "aerial photographs" in the subject line of your email so I can see your a real live genuine human customer and not some dubious autoemail offering some strange "treatment" or other!
