  • We have a very challenging brief to shoot(stills) of new and exciting typically unseen views of the major commercial cities of the world – What we are looking for are vies gained from access from rooftops or terraces that throw a whole new persective on a skyline of a city. We want to shoot skylines that are not typical picture postcard scenes. Yet the view has to offer wide views over a city and challenge the viewer for a moment and to not be obvois – so no empire state buildings or harbour views … A challenge? You bet!

    The main cities that we require this view are:

    Hong Kong
    New York

    We will be interested in the rarest view, ideally a new building or apartment rooftop – something as yet not over exploited. We want to give our photographer the chance to shoot something superb and cinematic. Im open to offers if there is a city you think offers this then drop me a line with some examples – jpegs or a link to your site would be great. Shooting within the next 2- 4 weeks

    What you have mentioned are some of the best & largest cities in the world. Unfortunately India does not featue anywhere in the list. However just in case you do wish to shoot, I an attaching a few pics of Jodhpur City in India as viewd from Mehrangarh Fort
    Kishore Sinh Parmar, Royal Locations

    I attach 4 images shot from rooftops. One is quickly identifiable as NYC, but even then to a non-native it may take a few seconds.
