    I flew with my friend Jared from Ranger Airfield. He is raffling off his Cessna 150 to raise money to refurbish the field, including building a new hangar. This is the 3rd oldest field in Texas, and even Amelia Earhart landed there in 1931.

    Every new shoot you post gets better.

    I really like the two close-ups in this shoot. Are you finding people more comfortable with formation flying that are willing to get closer, or are you using a longer lens for these?

    I know. I entered the Wing of Hope one awhile back, and weeks later they sent my money back. Looked it up and it's indeed not allowed. Crazy.

    super crisp pics. You can see so much detail in the plane and the background.

    I don’t see how Alabama has any say about a raffle being held in another state regardless of the fact you live in AL.

    Then again, listening to your governor talk on the news.... sheesh!

    I know. Our politicians leave a lot to be desired. They want that seat so they're willing to sell out for it. I ain't voting for him though. May not even vote.

    Thank you all for you kind words. I enjoy taking the photos. I know I have a certain style, hopefully if you fly with me, you like my style. Apparently it's not good enough for this guy, who I've known for years. He says they look muddy and he wants my raw files so he can edit them.

    Thank you, the support I get here means a lot! I'm so mad right now I can't even think straight. I'll never claim I'm the best photographer out there, but I mostly do it for fun and try to help people out. The EAA invited me out to Oshkosh because they like my work. General Aviation News just gave me the cover. Nobody has ever asked me to change a photo. I'm probably about half hurt, half ****ed at this point!

    Don't blame you. Maybe he's trying to get them free or something. I'd tell him to someone else.

    I gave them to him for free! I've known him a long time and support his events! Oh well, I'll get over it.

    Thank you.

    Thanks!

    Thank you. In this case, I know he's good at formation and flies a lot, so I let him tuck in close. I almost always shoot with my 70-200 lens, so he was pretty close!
