History Coming back to Life

One of the really cool things that Dad and I were able to photograph down at Dixie Wing was the restoration that was going on with their P-63 Kingcobra. This is by far one of the most unique designs that American Engineers came up with for a fighter plane during WWII. The P-63 was an […]

Change your Perspective

I often get asked how I come up with such interesting shots when it comes to my planes. Well it comes down to two things, symmetry and perspective. Now there are a bunch of other little details like light and background but lets just focus on the first two. The reason symmetry and perspective are […]

Well another Photoshop World has come and gone. They always seem to go faster than the last one but hey that just means that it was one really good time. The folks and I didn’t leave right after PSW, we stayed a couple days longer in Georgia in order to do some work with the […]

A Good Day at Dixie Wing

Precon turned out to be a fun time yet again. It was a little sketchy there for a while with the rain that was coming down but we lucked out and it moved south around us. The bus rolled on down to CAF Dixie Wing for the photo Safari. Every CAF hangar is a little […]

Photoshop World Precon

My favorite part of Photoshop World, photographically, is the day before all the learning begins. The Precon that takes place the Monday before the classes start houses some of the best advice while being able to practice it. Live action shoots are held among a number of different photographers and different fields of interest. Over […]

Some Friday Flyby Fun

I couldn’t really think of much to blog about today so I figured I would just sum up how the year is going so far. It’s flying by! I ain’t complaining it’s been a great year so far and it seems to just keep getting better and better. That’s always a good thing. What better […]

How do you get those great backgrounds

One of the questions that I often get is how I get those clean backgrounds? Well it’s kind of simple in that it’s not so simple. When I go to an airfield I watch how the planes land and takeoff and what the background looks like. I then go to the area where it’s the […]

The Little Planes

If you follow my blog then you know that I tend to work with warbirds whenever I can but I don’t always work with some of the smaller planes. I actually really like working with anything that has character and these biplanes have a lot of that. At one point biplanes were state of the […]

Parking some More Planes in the Shed

Every now and then, usually in the off time, I do a little a blog maintenance. It occurred to me that it had been a while since I updated my gallery pages and with the increasing number of images that I’ve finished lately I thought it would be fun to update some of those. So […]

Using Puddles to create drama

I love finding new and creatives ways to shoot planes, or helicopters in this case. Often times you see the same angles, the same sides the same backgrounds with the aircraft. It’s not really surprising considering most of them basically go on tour and travel to different venues. Well as we all know being different […]
