Aerial photography is such an exciting way to capture unique images. One of my favorite things to do when visiting a new location is to take a chartered helicopter flight over a landscape to see it from above. I find that when I’m up in the air, I am able to photograph so many incredible abstract shapes & patterns and stunning natural formations that I otherwise would not have been able to see.

Thanks to today’s technology, I am also able to capture aerial photography of a landscape through the use of a drone which at it’s smallest, can fit inside a pocket. Including drones in my photography kit has opened up a whole new world for me to create. The following galleries showcase images taken from planes, helicopters and drones in the Canadian Rockies, Himalayas, Iceland, Hawaii, Oregon, Italy and New York City.
