Anyone who has landed at London City Airport knows it is a treat.
Landing at a small airport in the heart of London is efficient, fast, but it provides a rare bonus, as passengers enjoy great views of London when the aircraft makes its approach.
I had never realised before, but the approach route in the air mirrors the DLR rail service I usually take after landing. In the following images, I retrace the steps as the cityscape folds and unfolds.
I am a Munich based photographer, specializing in music and portrait photography.
Since the mid 90’s I spend a big part of my life on tour, with orchestras performing all over the world.
As a founding member of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, sharing the stage with others allows me to get close, and my images offer unusual perspectives, in performance or backstage.
I aspire to share intimate moments and bring you closer to artists as they journey towards their performances.

Beautiful pics geoff!!
It is one of the best approaches to land. Especially if you get to fly past the Shard, it feels so close, almost like you’d be able to touch the building. Great photos,
