NYC and Las Vegas at night, photographed from above by Jason Hawkes

I always love the transformation of cities between day and night. Aerial photographer, Jason Hawkes photographs NYC and Las Vegas from above to create lively, bright and exciting urban images.

The images of New York were shot on Nikons latest camera, the D3S, using three gyro stabilizing mounts and flown using twin star helicopters. (Eurocopter AS355). We flew from heights of just over 500 ft up to 2,500-ft with no doors on, it was very very cold. The images of Las Vegas were shot for a separate project, using a range of helicopters from a Robinson 44 to Eurocopter AS355.
