Don’t you remember as a kid wishing you could fly? There is something magnificant about seeing birds in flight gliding down for a landing, or a glider flying overhead, tipping their wing to say hello and actually seeing their face!
On a recent aviation photoshoot of the hawkerbeechcraftkingair, nature provided so many incredible backdrops to photograph the airplanes. You develop quite an appreciation for the enginuity and sophicitication of the planes. They glide so effortlessly through the sky, but having been inside the cockpit many times, I know how complex the instrumentation is to allow this plane to function at such extreme levels. It is easy to get lost in the flight and yet, it’s connecting with my subject that allows me to express the beauty of the subject.
Aviation Photography is truly in the eye of the beholder.
