Story
Tagline
Photographer, aviation enthusiast and private pilot as well as a husband and father of three.
Introduction
I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska during the 1960’s and fondly recall watching Starfighters, Phantoms and Super Sabres thunder over my back yard. This fascination with flight has never waned. I fulfilled a personal goal when I received my private pilot license in 1985. I experienced the thrill and satisfaction of accumulating flight time in the Piper Tomahawk, Warrior II and Archer II as well as simulated air combat hours with Atlanta’s Sky Warriors in a Beech T-34A Mentor. 

My interest in aviation has evolved into a passion for aviation photography. I have been photographing aircraft, along with the people who fly and maintain them, for more than 25 years and have compiled a large archive of unique and interesting photos. While most of my work for hire tends to be color action photography, I also love creating black & white fine-art images.

Today I am a professional photographer, specializing in aviation photography, but also shooting sports, event and fine-art images and a regular contributor to the magazine World Airshow News. In addition to print and electronic media sales, I am available for custom photo sessions.

Thanks again for visiting my G+ page. If you would like to see more of my photography, please visit my site at www.Aviationbuff.com.

Great angle!
I photographed this plane in 1995 in Sweden (if it's the same ol' Crow). Oh, sweet analouge times! :-)

Yeah, it is a beautiful aircraft. Deep blue color and a roaring engine.
