Aviation Photography


Aviation photography has been around since the late 1800’s.  It first started with balloons and then either on the ground or in the air it took flight.  People make a living off of “aviation art.”  It’s one of my favorite areas of the art world.  I love everything from sculptures to photography.  Photography is by far my favorite though.  An airplane doesn’t have to move, primp, or smile to be beautiful.  It simply just is.  

I have been in love with photography since I my grandmother gave me a Polaroid camera.  I now have a Nikon D3000.  It’s not some big fancy photography camera, but its the closest I could get to one without breaking the bank.  Camera’s are expensive! Well, not like airplanes…but they are up there once you start buying filters, lenses, and fancy flashes.

Here are some of my photos over the past year.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

This photo is the view through a prop tool I was using to remove a hydraulic prop off of a Beechcraft Bonanza.  THAT was a lot of fun…not.

I am a sucker for anything that lands on water.  This was sitting outside of a hangar in the Florida Keys.  It was hard to load airplane parts on a trailer and in the truck when all I wanted to do was go for a ride in this beauty!

I love Florida sunsets.  This is the “rear view” of my 172 at the Sanford airport.

This was taken at Sun N Fun last year.  My sunburnt wasn’t so much fun…

Our 172 and 182 are in the Orlando Christian Flying Club.  This was taken at a wash n’ wax a while back.

This was taken at a fly-in at Cedar Knoll in Geneva, FL.  They have a seaplane base that you can land on the St. Johns River.  Lots of fun at Gator Drink! 🙂

If you can tell me what this is, you’re getting extra brownie points!  This was taken at Sun N Fun this year.

This is my “God is shining through” photo.  There were storms everywhere but this was just beautiful.  The picture doesn’t give it justice.

Another beautiful sunset in Sanford, FL.

This was taken up in Ludington, MI.  A rare bird among GA planes.

 

 

Hope you enjoyed them!
