The P-64

EAA Airventure always has a lot to offer and this year was no different. One of the very special planes that was flew was Paul Poberezny’s North American P-64. For those that don’t know Paul Poberezny and his wife Audrey, started EAA many years ago. His old field, hangars and personnel memorabilia including his library […]

Filling the Frame isn’t Everything

The size of the subject is something that I hear a lot about when it comes to aviation because everyone seems to think that the plane has to fill the frame. A lot of times that is hard to do. Even with the 200-400 VR and high speed crop, the way the airshow is setup […]

Testing the Low Light Abilities of the D5

The D5 has some amazing abilities but the one that I’ve spent as much time testing is shooting in the dark. At EAA Airventure they do night performances which are always spectacular. Over the years I have come to desire to the great plane with the firework shot to which I have never gotten the […]

The Snowbirds Stole the Show

The Snowbirds have been a favorite of mine for years. This Canadian Jet Team was been performing for years and each time it is done with such precision that it almost doesn’t seem real since they fly with nine aircraft. The CT-114 Tutor while deceptive simple is an impressive aircraft and even with nine airplanes […]

This Plane Made a Big Splash!

The Martin Mars was without a doubt one of the biggest highlights of EAA Airventure, Oshkosh 2016. I mean that quite literally as the plane is massive! It’s not as big as Howard Hughes’s Hercules seaplane plane, also known as the Spruce Goose, but since that plane only flew once it was never considered operational […]

The Museum Has it All

EAA Airventure has a lot to offer but no trip to Oshkosh is complete without a stop at the EAA Airventure Museum. The museum has some of the rarest aircraft in the world sitting on display for people. Most of the planes in the museum are actual first, either the the first one made or […]

Texas Flying Legends at Oshkosh

Airventure 2016 was a blast! Back home at the office now and loving going through the 30K images I took at Oshkosh. It’s a fun process. EAA Airventure offers a lot of different events to enjoy. Each year is different but each time you leave feeling like you need a vacation because so much goes […]

So Many Planes So Hard To Do Air To Air

The two times that I have come to EAA Airventure, Oshkosh I have been fortunate enough to do an air to air photo mission. You would think with the surplus amount of planes that come to the Airshow that it would be easy to do more but in reality it is very difficult to do. […]

The Afternoon Session

This is something that I see a lot of people struggle. It’s the middle of the afternoon, the light isn’t great, you paid all that money to be out there shooting so you do but you aren’t happy with the results. This is happens a lot. It’s real easy to have happen with planes because […]

Look To The Skies!

I truly find this to be the hardest area to get good shots of at EAA Airventure, Oshkosh. The great thing about this airshow is that they are lots of performances going on at all times. The downside it is not always easy to get good shots. Between finding a good place to stand, having […]
