Eyes in the sky
Client: Absolute Photo
Camera: Nikon D4s
Rewind to a car journey and I was stuck in traffic. Searching through Twitter I came across the Feed from the Met Police Helicopter - they post amazing pics of London that they snap on the way back from jobs in the sky. A lightbulb popped up above my head: “that could be a cool story”!
So, fast forward a few weeks and there I was, at the police helicopter HQ on the edge of London and I was about to take to the skies. I needed a serious camera for this shoot and it arrived a few days previous in the shape of the Nikon D4s - wow, what a weapon.
Now, I’m not the best with motion - I was nearly sick after a pedalo ride on a beach in Crete once, but I managed to not redecorate the inside of the 8 million pound copter during an hour-long flight that took us over The Emirates and Wembley stadiums, Heathrow, Central London and Canary Wharf.
Hope you enjoy the images and grabs from the feature that was included in the June issue of Absolute Photo.
