This is not an easy shot to get because of the time, logistics and money that go into it but spending mornings flying all over New York City in a helicopter can be a lot of fun. I'm often asked if I shot this from a building and I wish I could say yes because it would have been a lot easier and cheaper but it has to be an aerial shot. Not long after I took this one I told the pilot I wanted to shoot straight down over the Empire State Building so there we are over the building doing aerial doughnuts so he could get the helicopter on a steep enough angle and I could hang outside the open doorway and shoot downwards. I was trying to concentrate on what I was doing and keep the nausea down as much as possible but I was also trying to remember if I'd left any camera gear loose in the cockpit because at that angle I was worried it would fall out and kill some poor tourist below. Fortunately, no gear or vomit left the cockpit on that flight for which I am grateful.

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).

The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.

The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.

If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.
