Being Above

Obsessed with trying to capture the impossible, this shooting style is extremely challenging, yet safe when performed correctly. Separated by a few thousand feet, the difficulty is to synchronize the flight direction with the aircraft flying below. It takes a lot of feel and mental calculation, as there are several seconds in which the airliner is not visible under my craft. The feel of airspeed, prevailing winds and knowledge of the lansdcape below is key to interesting capture.

Presented in an unique ‘look down’ setting, those images – in sizes 40x60in are laid down on a pedestal so that the viewer can also put himself in the unusual attitude and therefore participate with the experience at height.

Feature: Fall in Love, from Above

Postcards from late fall, when the calm, morning air settled over Croton Falls Reservoir and it’s adjacent areas. This ‘magic hour’ is usually relatively short lasting, however with today’s sophisticated forecasts it can be planned in advance.

All images presented below are available in print in various sizes, including highly detailed large format. Open edition.
