Pic of the Day: RIP Robert Cameron, Aerial Photographer


According to his rather belated New York Times obit, photographer Robert Cameron died almost two weeks ago at the age of 98. He continued working up until the very end: “Three months after he last rode shotgun in a helicopter, pointing his Pentax camera (mounted on a gyroscope to offset the vibrations), Mr. Cameron, the creator and publisher of the popular ‘Above’ series of photography books for the coffee table, died on Nov. 10 at his home in San Francisco.”

More of his fantastic bird’s-eye shots after the jump.
