"You haven't seen a tree until you've seen its shadow from the sky."

Aerial photography is almost as old as photography itself! The first use of a camera to record the views from above occurred from a hot air balloon in 1858. A 19th century photographer named Felix Nadar (not Ralph) shot a French chateau below him, and realized the value and uniqueness of this art. Nadar went on to produce a series of images of Paris which became a huge commercial success.
