Above is Webb Aviation Aerial Photography owner  / webmaster / chief aerial photographer / head of accounts / head of marketing Jonathan Webb and at the in action below at Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent using the Robinson R44 helicopter of Thurston Helicopters. The camera is the legendary 5000.00 Canon 1DS mkIII and attached to it is the even more legendary 3000 Canon 300mm f2.8L. Note when shooting in this way with the doors removed the photographer is strapped to the aircraft and then each piece of equipment is strapped to the harness separately. For aerial photography in London we must use a twin engined aircraft such as the one below provided by Stapleford Flight Centre in Essex. Jonathan flies almost every week and takes up to 50,000 aerial photographs a year. Jonathan is one of only a handful of aerial photographers in the UK who is equipped and experienced in night aerial photography.   Jonathan's 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 and 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  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.

Jonathan Webb founded Webb Aviation Aerial Photography in March 1991 shortly after completing a Business Studies degree at Manchester Metropolitan University. Since then the business has grown from strength to strength and in May 2008 Jonathan Webb was awarded the distinction of Associate of the Royal Photographic Society for his aerial photography.  Jonathan is also a member of Editorial Photographers UK ( EPUK )  and Freelens.  Jonathan has published a dozen books on aerial photography and today webbaviation.co.uk is one of the most visited aerial photography websites in the UK with more than 5 million visitors a year, that's as many visitors  as Edinburgh Castle !  Aerial photography can be challenging when working half inside and half outside the aircraft. It can involve pulling G in winds over 100mph , significant turbulence and temperatures well below freezing.
