The need for specialization is increasing, it is not enough only to be photographer, Jason Hawkes is one of those profiles that specializes in aerial photography. The London skyline is changing rapidly, driven largely by the celebration this summer of the Olympics, and because one of those most noticeable changes is generated by tall buildings, Jason Hawkes shows us a vision of London like Blade Runner's city.

this video takes as the reference axis The Shard building, designed by Renzo Piano, the building that once completed will have the dubious honor of being the tallest building in Europe. The tour also can identify other iconic elements of the city as the dome of the Cathedral "Saint Paul", the financial district of the City and Sir Norman Foster building popularly known as "The Gherkin", the big wheel, "London Eye" or the activity on the river Thames.
