I often find myself getting lost scrolling through Arch Daily galleries and looking at architecture photography from a bird’s eye view.
I think aerial photography is so fascinating because it has the power to transport us to faraway places around the world.
Aerial perspectives engulf us into a location as if we’re right above it.
Architecture from above is especially interesting because we get a new outlook on a location to see the beauty of the bigger picture.
Best Views in Los Angeles
A bigger story can be told from above and magical aerial video brings new life to any digital setting.
Some of the nicest neighborhoods in southern California have been photographed by Visual Media LA.
Drone photography and aerial photography have taken over the real estate market in places like downtown LA and clients are loving it.
Not only do they get a new perspective on a location, but they get to see the intricate details of the building they’re looking to invest in.
Photographers are also benefiting from aerial photography. Many photographers find themselves needing an electronic storage device and memory cards to preserve information.
Incredible Aerial Photo of New York City
Some of the most impressive aerial shots come from “the city that never sleeps.”
The architecture in NYC ranges in style from gothic to modern, industrial, art deco, plus everything in between.
Lower Manhattan is one of the most popular hubs of NYC, and this photo gives you a peek at how large the city is along the lake shore.
If you want to get lost in the city and feel like a grain of salt, visit one of the largest cities in the world; The Big Apple.
Skyline View of Chicago
Chi-Town may be a lighter, friendlier version of NY, but the city is still home to 2.7+ million people.
Chicago is known for its marvelous skyline, rooftop bars, museums, deep dish foods, plus all the nightlife you can think of.
The best part of this shot is the vivid architecture surrounding miles of the Chicago River.
The skyscrapers in New York tower over you for what feels like days. The ones in Chicago are bold, yet subtle.
The beauty of Chicago is that you can get away from the tall buildings where you don’t feel so claustrophobic like you would in NY.
The Adriatic Sea & Dalmatian Coast of Croatia
The mesmerizing coast of Croatia offers the Dalmatian islands; a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The coast of Croatia also offers some of the clearest waters and most impressive dwellings in the world.
Croatian-style buildings are a mix of Mediterranean, Romanesque, Renaissance, and Baroque.
The country’s coastline is famous for its red roofs and their buildings are typically made of stone to withstand the high heat and weathers.
Birmingham in England
If you were to google “English architecture”, you’d notice that many of the styles in England are Victorian, medieval, and gothic. Now, if you’re not a fan of any of those styles, you may never want to visit England.
This edgy shot of Birmingham shows just how modern, industrial, and innovative the larger cities can be.
If you never got a glimpse of how different Birmingham is from the rest of England, you may never really realize how fascinating it is.
Aerial Shot of Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The Dubai skyline is perfect for aerial photography shots, just like New York.
Dubai is known for its contemporary buildings, luxury shopping, advancement in technology, man-made islands, among many other things.
This aerial view of Dubai shows how the modern architecture surrounds the Burj Khalifa, as it dominates the city’s skyline.
Because of its luxurious destination and unmatched architecture, the Dubai marina is one of the most expensive places to visit and live in the world.
Barcelona City from Above
You don’t even have to know what city it is to recognize Barcelona from above.
Barcelona features some of the world’s most historic landmarks. From Sagrada Familia to Park Güell, Torre Agbar, Cathedral of Barcelona, Casa Mila (La Pedrera), Casa Batllo, among many others.
And soccer, or football, is very important in Spain, so we can’t forget the Camp Nou Stadium where Barcelona FC plays.
Barcelona is a historic city that features a mix of Gothic, Romanesque, and Contemporary architectural styles. Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi, encouraged the 20th century movement of contemporary, or Modernisme, architecture in Barcelona.
The city has fused its gothic styles with Gaudi’s modern engineering for some of the most historic architectural sights in the world today.
