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 .

Aerial Photography in March 1991 shortly after completing a

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.
