PurePhoto is celebrating the launch of Mike Kelley’s new book by offering our collectors a complimentary, signed copy of LA AIRSPACE: Los Angeles Photographed From Above when they purchase one of his fine art prints.* This first edition, hard cover book includes 120 pages of black and white aerial photos of Los Angeles. All of the images were shot during a time period known as the ‘golden hour,’ in which the California sunset cascades over the city, giving amazing depth, texture, and three-dimensionality not seen at any other time during the day.

"While it is easy to describe as beautiful, Los Angeles has a tendency to be lost in translation when viewed from the ground. Yet as soon as you take to the skies, the jumbled mass of tangled streets, freeways, construction, nature and noise begins to take on a new life. There is an inherent beauty to it all when viewed from above, an ethereal, grand, graphical and at times humorous beauty." - Mike Kelley

Mike Kelley is a Los Angeles based photographer specializing in Architecture, Interiors, Commercial Spaces, as well as Aerial and Aviation Photography. Mike is known for his light-painting method of photography, where he uses both natural and artificial light to artistically capture indoor and outdoor spaces. Every single image is meticulously crafted with expert attention to detail. Mike strives to create fun, laid-back environments when shooting, whether it be a small house or a downtown skyscraper overlooking the ocean. When Mike isn't photographing architecture and interiors, he is always working on exciting new projects -- anything from photographing planes taking off from airports, documenting the architecture of Iceland, or publishing a book of aerial images of Los Angeles.
