You’ve seen them. You wonder how they do it? Is it a drone? Are these guys actually hanging out of helicopters? And also, why on earth didn’t we think of doing this kind of extreme sport for a living? It would seem a lot of time is spent people watching in some of the hottest of hot spots from hot dogging exclusive beaches in the south of Europe to skimming the peaks at the creme de la creme of ski resorts, aerial and large scale photography is everywhere right now. I love the effect. The art tells a story of people at sport, play and rest. A sort of grown up version of Where’s Waldo? You find yourself hoping you could find yourself in the mix…Here are a collection of photographers that take this voyeuristic art form to a whole new level. There’s a place and a price point that should appeal to most. From Massimo Vitali to Gray Malin, take a (bird’s eye) view of some very exciting venues and some very happy holiday-goers to inspire vacation feelings in your own home even on the dullest of days.
