I have been fascinated with airplanes and stories of the pilots and crews for as long as I can remember. I started taking
pictures while I was in the Marine Corps in the early 1980's. I was a bulk fuel man and had the opportunity to refuel aircraft
as well as to get rides on a lot of the helicopters in service at the time.
My first experience of being able to take pictures
at an airshow occurred when I was in the Alabama Air National Guard. At the time I was an Avionics Technician on F-4 Phantoms
when the Guard unit I was in had an open house. I did not realize that there were so many restored and flyable World War II aircraft
and vehicles still around, and this started my interest in Airshows.
Once I found out what was available to go see, I was hooked.
With my interest in Military history and love for airplanes, I thoroughly enjoy going to a good airshow.
I like to shoot video as well as still photographs.
I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of good people including many veterans, and performers.
Over the years I have been fortunate to meet and be helped out by many of the Airshow personnel, pilots, and several exceptionally
talented photographers. I do not mind passing that information on, so if you see me and have a question I can help with, please ASK.
