Since the first time I flew in the backseat of an aircraft I have been struggling with reflection. Later I learned that almost everybody who photographs from behind a windows fight the same ghost that always appears when you have the perfect formation set and you are ready to capture the action.
Combat Aircraft Monthly, January 2019. I provided the cover photo and multiple images in the actual magazine feature about the involvement of the California ANG’s 144th FW in exercise Clear Sky 2018 in Ukraine.
Air Forces Monthly, April 2017 issue. Overview feature of the aviation support at the U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground.
Spectaculair Low Level pictures of Dutch F-35’s over Death Valley National Park. Also included are a few shots taken of the same Dutch F-35’s at their home base, Edwards Air Force Base, California.
Flying with the Mile High Militia, the 140th WG of the Colorado ANG. This photo flight had it all, great flying by the pilots, great photo opportunities( including weapon releases, a first for me!) and of course the amazing landscape of Colorado. Its not going to get any better than this!
In the summer of 2016 the 194th EFS ‘Griffins’ of the California ANG deployed F-15 Eagles to Romania for joined training with the local MiG-21 LanceR’s. On behalf of Combat Aircraft Monthly I was offered backseat rides to grab aerial images of the Eagles and LanceRs. It was the first time I worked with the Griffins. Fortunately more opportunities came after this memorable visit to the squadron in Romania.
