Aerial photography is the technique of taking photos of the land from an elevated location. In most cases, aerial photographs are taken without the support of a ground based structure. Instead, they are taken by the photographer aboard an aircraft, or triggered automatically, or by remote control from kites, balloons or vehicle mounted poles.

Because aerial photography can give us a view of the “whole forest, not just individual trees” it can give us a beautiful and unique perspective of the whole area that we do not normally see on land. In this article, we are sharing with you some of the great examples of aerial photography that you can use for inspiration in your continued quest to take your photographic art to the higher level. Once you have some material you should consider showcasing it online in your own portfolio – consider using a photography theme for this as there are many available that are really cool.
