Happy 4th of July!!! Today we celebrate what brave men did many years ago to forge this great nation that we live in today. While you’re out celebrating, eating bbq, boating on the lake or any other fun summer activities, stop and give thanks for a moment.

Every now and then those great mornings come along that you never want to end. We had one of those mornings while shooting statics in Minot at the Dakota Territory Museum with the Monocoupe 110 Special and this Waco QCF-2. This particular Waco is just an…

If you ever need a way to help hide a really bad background while adding drama to your aviation images then getting down lower and shooting up can do just that. Whether static or taxing, finding a ditch to stand in or a by just kneeling down you can give…

When you are out and about you never know where that next great image will be and that’s why it is important to have your camera with you. If you saw my post yesterday then you know I had my camera with me while fishing. I have spent a lot of time on the…

I love Spring weather in the Rockies. Bozeman has always been a great place for landscape photography since we usually get some great clouds moving through. Yesterday was one of those days where I really wasn’t sure if anything was going to happen since…

There are a lot of little things that go into each photography and sometimes it’s hard to remember all of them when you’re trying to actually shoot. Well here’s a quick tip that can make a difference. When working with aircraft in flight you don’t always…

Dad’s covered this really well and it has sorta become one of his catch phrases when it comes to Aviation but it quite literally is the truth. The two of us and our good friend Warren were talking on the ramp outside of the maintenance hangar at Minot…

This is a question I’ve been asked a lot about because there are a lot of different opinions on the matter. Some say photo contests are great and others not so. Like everything else in photography it does come down to your own preference. For me I…

I’ve started to really enjoy branching out in my photography into areas I never thought I would go. One of those areas is outdoor sports, like fly fishing. We’re starting to get back into the season where the rivers aren’t quite so high or muddy from the…

There have been many iconic planes that have contributed to the history of aviation but one of the early contributors that can still be seen flying today is the Ford Trimotor. This all aluminum, 8-17 passenger plane with a crew of two, helped to usher in…

Over the last week I have been very busy getting images finished for a client and they are really starting to pile up. I’ve already done 1700 images and there’s still more to do but thankfully with the help of Adobe Camera Raw there are some time saving…

Introduction

Jake has spent his whole life in photography without knowing how much it was influencing him. From the time he was a squirt, being carried around in his parent’s arms, to college where he discovered his desire for exploring the world and sharing it with everyone else; he was taught, trained, and studied under other photographers. As a striving youngster trying to make his way in both the wildlife realm and aviation photography, he continues to find new stories and new people to share them with. His on going passion pushes him to astride for greater things as his journey continues forward.
