Up in the Air is a culmination of 6 years hanging out of helicopters, photographing locations from California to Australia's Shark Bay and Utah to St Tropez. The work ranges from idyllic beach scenes in Gran Canaria to the abstract landscape of Utah's salt lakes, and shows his progression in style from documentary travel photography to abstract art.
In 2015 Tommy was shortlisted for International Landscape Photographer of the Year. He has exhibited work at the Affordable Art Fair and the Other Art Fair, and his aerial photographs have been featured in GQ, The Times, Conde Nast Traveller and the Wall Street International.
London based photographer Tommy Clarke travels the world taking aerial photographs. Growing up on the south coast of England with many childhood holidays at the beach, he developed a deep interest of the interaction between water and land and how people connect with that location. But it wasn't until he was living in Sydney that he embarked on his first aerial shoot over Bondi Beach, capturing the colourful surfboards strewn across the beach.
