The Man behind the lens...
Ofir Ben Tov bought his first camera at the age of 14. This sparked a curiosity about how he could combine his love of numbers, ratios and other mathematical principles with photography.
Ofir took his first photographic flight At eighteen years old. What he saw changed his ilfe. The Holy Land of Israel, stripped of politics and strife, as an amazing canvas from the sky. Through photography, he could see mathematical principles reflected in nature as an "insight from above".

Following Ofir’s post in the Israeli Defense Forces as a major in a unit that specialized in aerial photography, Ofir continued to explore the field of geomatics: he established AIB. his first geomatics company in Israel; and achieved a Masters degree with Excellence in Geo-information from Tel Aviv University.
In 2014, Ofir co-founded GSL, a provider of geospatial solutions in India (www.gslgeo.com). To date, Ofir has a vast wealth of experience in the 3D mapping, geoinformation and remote sensing fields. It has led him to executing projects at a highly complex level in Israel, the US, Africa and India. His passion for aerial photographic art burns as strong as ever, and he hopes to spend many more years combining mathematical ideas, emotion and beauty using nature as his canvas.
Along with his love for aerial photographic art and geoinformation, Ofir is a deep researcher into and practitioner of hatha yoga.
