Richard Cooke, an action photographer whose portfolio includes innovative air-to-air shots of RAF jets, has launched a weekly video series telling the stories behind some of his most daring shoots. In the first episode, he explains how his first job photographing a Jaguar squadron in the air came to be, what the preparation was like, and what happened when he accidentally tripped the Jaguar's air brake on his first flight.

Up to five episodes currently, the series is a fascinating first-hand account of all the trouble that goes on behind the scenes of some truly incredible images. Take a look at the first episode here, and head to YouTube to subscribe and see the full series.
