Format: Paperback
Lloyd has clearly travelled well and taken some lovely photographs in his time. But this book is a showcase of his photos, rather than a tutorial on aerial photography technique. It's a big book, with glossy, heavy paper, filled with his photographs. He spends the vast majority of the book giving details on beautiful scenery, and his discussions with helicopter pilots. He talks about his son a lot. He even has a photo of him posing next to a helicopter, with no apparent instructive value. He doesn't show any of the equipment (there are numerous mentions of gyro stabilizers for example, but you're given no idea what one looks like, how it's used, or what it costs), no specifics on film (he says find film you like and stick with it), and overall there is just very little useful detail. This is a work for his portfolio. It's nice to look at, but worthless to learn from.

Although this book was published in 1990, it is an excellent book on professional practices and photography prior to the digital age. If you are a professional photographer with an interest in aerial photography, it belongs in your library. Get some more recent books to brosden your knowledge but buy this one before it becomes unavailable. You will like it.

This book has no value on aerial technique. I have read it and find it of no value to me whatsoever.

The author Harvey Lloyd presents the world of aerial photography in an easy to read and highly informative way. His illustrations demonstrate the art which he calls "three-dimensional chess" in a most brilliant way. Chapters on the art of photography illuminate how to make beautiful and lasting images. His words about aerial photography are poetic and filled with practical advice. Obviously, the writer is in love with aerial photography and is proud to share this love. I recommend this book to anyone who would love to fly and photograph the wonders of the earth.
