Will Noble25 Aerial Images Of London To Make You Fall Utterly In Love With This City All Over
At Londonist, we're always excited to get an email from Jason Hawkes, because it means we're about to see some extraordinary photos of our city.
While we tend to go around snapping things at ground level on a camera phone, Hawkes prefers to take his photos from an AS355 helicopter.
From heights of 750-feet to 2,450-feet.
While hanging out of the door.
We're grateful he's got the guts to, as well — otherwise we wouldn't have remarkable aerial photos like these.
Hawkes has selected some of his favourite aerial views from his latest London session — taken between spring and autumn 2021.
As always, they're a heady concoction of instantly-recognisable iconic landmarks, and one or two shots that'll have you squinting then cocking your head to one side, before going "Ah, THAT'S where that is!"
The (in)famous Sky Pool at Embassy Gardens also gets the Jason Hawkes treatment for the first time.
Accompanying Hawkes shots is this video footage taken from his flights over London during 2021 — complete with stirring soundtrack.
You can see more of Hawkes' work — including aerial shots of New York, Morocco and Hong Kong — on his website.
