Practice makes a blog post

How do we get better? Well it comes from a lot of time planning, some researching and of course a lot of practice. Sure a touch of luck never hurts anyone but it can’t be relied upon. That’s why it is called luck. Last year I got hired to do a lot of product shots […]

Beechcraft’s A-36 Bonanza

This post has proven to be quite a challenge as every week it gets harder to decide which plane to talk about. Some planes have such a long, varied history that it makes it almost daunting to find a place to start. This week Dad kind of prompted the topic with his post last Friday […]
