Aviation Photography

As a former aircraft owner I always wanted photographs of my Cessna Skylane. Working at Cessna gave me the opportunity to work with some of the world’s best aviation photographers, so I am familiar with the depth of preparation necessary to get a great aviation shot.

Do you own an aircraft and long for the opportunity to have photographs of your personal aircraft for your home or office?

The photographs in the Aviation Gallery are examples of the images I can create for you. They come from assignments, Cessna Flyer Magazine articles, and travels with NetJets. Some of the photographs combine multiple images to create the final photograph using Adobe Photoshop editing.


Assignment preparation includes an interview to understand your objectives, site selection, flight pattern brief to produce the best shot angles, and time of day to create and enhance image quality. After the shoot I will review the images and produce proofs for your final print selection.

Cost depends on travel distance and time spent on location. If you are planning a trip through the Midwest, A photo shoot at my home airport (SN65), Waltanna near Wichita Kansas will minimize your costs.

I recommend an uncontrolled airport with the photo shoot planned at sunrise. Airport traffic is generally light at this time of day versus sunset when more aircraft may be in the pattern.

If you want to discuss specifics, please send me a note in the contact window below. I would like to talk to you.


Projects are defined by the story you want to tell. These assignments can be as long as a few hours or transpire over a day, week, months or a year.

The Wheat Gallery is an excellent example of a long-term one-year project. Planting wheat starts and ends with wheat stubble in a field. Then, plowing, disking, spring tooth (raking), fertilizing and planting, followed by growth and harvest.
