The Gherkin by Jeffrey Milstein

Last month, New Yorker and high-flying fine art photographer Jeffrey Milstein rented out a private helicopter to capture London in a jaw-dropping series of aerial photographs.

In just 60 minutes, Jeffrey shot a load of amazing images of city landmarks – and get this – he took them all with the heli door wide open. The incredible series includes flyovers over the Gherkin, the London Eye, Covent Garden Market, HM Treasury, St Paul's Cathedral, the British Museum, Trafalgar Square and even Buckingham Palace.

The project didn't come without its fair share of turbulent bumps, though. Time restraints, good old British weather, dwindling light, height restrictions and air traffic control were just a few of the obstacles Milstein had to overcome: He told Time Out: 'To get the shot of the Gherkin we needed to get above the allowable height in that area. They gave us a few minutes and I was able to nail it.'

After looking at a few of the snaps for yourself, we're pretty certain you'll agree with us that Jeffrey nailed the lot. Here are a few of his epic images.
