About the photographer

My passion for all things airplane has been a lifelong condition, leading me to a degree in Aeronautical Engineering and a lengthy aerospace career. Surprisingly, I did not point a camera at an airplane until my last year in college (1982) and have not stopped since. I live and work in Northern California where I try to attend at least four or five local airshows each season. An aerospace career has provided me many chances to photograph subjects ranging from Space Shuttles and giant Antonov transports to helicopters at the Hiller Aviation Museum.  Though I prefer to photograph military aircraft, I have been diversifying my topics as my style continues to develop.

Upgrading my Nikon cameras and lenses has helped me improve the quality of my images, resulting in articles and photographs appearing in General Aviation News, Airport Journals, Pacific Flyer, InFlight USA, and Smithsonian Air & Space.  In 2010 I became one of the official photographers for the prestigious Living Legends of Aviation Awards gala held in Beverly Hills.  I use Think Tank  and Peak Design products exclusively while using and transporting my equipment.
