Jason Hawkes likes to photograph the world from above, and he has been doing that since 1991. In college, all he wanted to be was a studio photographer, but all that changed after a flight in a small aircraft. "I realized that, with a little attitude, you see all these amazing patterns - even mundane things look intriguing," said Hawkes.

The British photographer spent 15 weeks using state of the art technology to create these dramatic shots for his new book, New York At Night.

"The images of New York were shot on Nikons latest camera, the D3S, using three gyro stabilizing mounts and flown using twin star helicopters. We flew from heights of just over 500 ft up to 2,500-ft with no doors on, it was very very cold."
