Welcome to one of the worlds largest on-line collections of oblique aerial photographs of the UK.

All the aerial photographs in the picture library are free to view  and available to licence as high resolution digital files with usage rights. I am currently shooting a huge  number of  aerial photographs every year so there are many more photographs in stock than on-line so it is always worth emailing a special request. With over 5 million visitors per year,  my gallery  is one of the biggest and  most popular galleries  in the world for free to view on-line oblique aerial photographs of the UK. All the aerial photographs in the gallery are taken  by me,  Jonathan C.K.Webb BA(Hons)DipM ARPS

My night aerial photographs are in the German
                  Bild newspaper

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.

My aerial photographs have featured in most major newspapers including the Telegraph, The Independent, The Guardian, The Sun, The Scotsman, The Daily Mail, The Liverpool Echo. My images have also been published by the Royal Photographic Society, The Royal Geographic Society, the Royal  Society for Arts , the BBC, and ITV . There have been articles about  Webb Aviation Aerial Photography Picture Library  in the Professional Photographer magazine , The Royal Photographic Society Heritage Magazine, Bild Zeitung, Local life magazine and the Staffordshire Country Magazine as well as various newspaper and radio interviews. My images can also be seen in numerous publications worldwide including books, magazines, post cards, advertising, film and TV .

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 made further improvements with the new Canon 5dIII with even more detail and from Summer 2015 I  have been using the amazing 50MP Canon 5DS .

Webb Aviation aerial photographers is run by Jonathan CK Webb, who  has been in the UK aerial photography business since 1991. While much of my work is commissioned oblique and near vertical  aerial photography surveys for a wide range of blue chip U.K. commercial and public sector clients I 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 5 million 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 1000 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.
