Night Aerial Photography, by photographer Jason Hawkes, is a project that features amazing nighttime aerial images. Jason, whose daytime aerial images were featured in an earlier FILE project, explains this project:
Shooting aerial photography during the daytime had its own difficulties, you are strapped tightly into a harness leaning out of the helicopter, shouting directions through the headsets to the pilot. Its often pretty windy in the cabin, and with the constant movement of the aircraft around the skies and the vibration caused by the rotor-blades, it's not particularly conducive to an easy workload.
Having said that, the views you can get are truly awe inspiring.
If shooting in the day can be difficult, night and the lack of light causes its own set of problems, but overcoming them is half the fun and the results can be stunning.
