Legendary photographer and photojournalist Robert Capa reportedly said: "If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough!" But proximity doesn't always guarantee great imagery. Sometimes the opposite is true, as aerial photographer and Canon Ambassador Massimo Sestini proves.
Massimo started out as a conventional news photographer in the 1990s but over the years has specialised in aerial photography, shooting from moving helicopters and military aircraft, hundreds of metres up in the air.
His images depict oceans, landscapes and cityscapes from a perspective very few people otherwise get to see. He has captured the well-documented beauty of Tuscany afresh for the region's tourist board, and photographed the Italian Air Force aerobatic team, the Frecce Tricolori, above breathtaking mountain landscapes and over cities at night.
