Gotham 7,500 Feet Up

“Imagine leaning out of an open door of a helicopter 7,500 feet over New York City on a very dark and chilly night…”

If you think your instagram pics of the Big Apple as you land at La Guardia or JFK are amazing then consider yourself schooled. Vincent Laforet ventured out on a dark, windy, and cold night, high above the city that never sleeps to capture some of the most beautiful images of NYC I’ve ever seen. From the challenges of photographing at night in a shaky helicopter to dealing with the anxiety of being suspended by harnesses 7,500 feet up, Laforet has taken aerial photography to another level. I could go on and on about the beauty found within these images, but it’s best to check them out for yourself on as large a monitor as possible.
