This Guy Shoots 100MP Aerial Photos While Hanging Out of a Helicopter

Jin-Woo Prensena is a Los Angeles-based fine art photographer who shoots gorgeous aerial photos from a top-down perspective. Instead of using a drone, as is popular these days, Prensena hangs out of helicopters while wielding a Phase One XF 100MP medium format camera for 100-megapixel photos.

Prensena first got into the aerial photography niche three years ago, partnering with a friend of his, helicopter pilot Aaron Fitzgerald of Airborne Images.

While Fitzgerald pilots the chopper at upwards of 7,500 feet, Prensena hangs out of the open door with a harness on his back and shoots photos with his camera pointed straight down.

Here’s a video showing Prensena shooting from the outside of an airborne helicopter:
