We live in a world that never fails to amaze us with its beauty. Its landscapes and scenery will always be a sight to behold – no matter what perspective you look at it. Even if it’s high up in the air. Meet Yann Arturs-Bertrand, French photographer and founder of Altitude Agency, the world’s first press agency specializing in aerial photography.

Bertrand has a collection of photos from all around the world, shot in bird’s eye view. The result is something that will take your breath away.

The collection includes aerial shots of cities, deserts, glaciers, coastlines, people, and animal formations. It’s a series of photos that even people who are afraid of heights, will appreciate. Bertrand hopes that this will inspire us to get involved in earth conservation efforts.
