Combining daring aerial photography with the restricted airspace over Paris provides both breathtaking and unparalleled views.

From sunrise to sunset, Paris is one of the most photographed cities in the world. Shooting with the newest high-resolution medium-format professional cameras while leaning out of helicopters making steep turns with the door off, Milstein captures the highly detailed, iconic, straight-down images that set his work apart.

Milstein’s distinctive style–straight down–leads to fresh insights of the urban design of this great city. In a way that is impossible from street level, you can see the old neighbourhoods of Montmartre and Montparnasse; iconic historical monuments like the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe or the Invalides; and modern Paris like La Défense or the new neighbourhoods around the Bibliothèque Nationale. As a bonus, there is a portfolio of images of the gardens and buildings of Louis XIV’s great palace, Versailles.

Milstein brings his unique and unmatched aerial vistas of Paris to life–every angle, every moment, every season. This is sure to be treasured by tourists and Parisians alike. Jeffrey Milstein’s work has been published in numerous publications, including CNN Money, the Daily Mail, Elle Décor, Esquire, Fortune, Time, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Wired. His work can be seen at LACMA, the Smithsonian Institution, George Eastman House, and the Akron Art Museum. He lives in Woodstock, New York.
