When it comes to the small world of aviation photography, José "Fuji" Ramos is notorious for taking fantastic shots, often times from the backseat of a Navy aggressor jet. Here's what he captures.

Introducing the new Ramos Aviation Photography logo. Designed by my good friend Bryan Snuffer who does not only some great artwork, remember the painting "View to a Kill" featuring VFC-111, but also a lot of design work for logos, patches and such for the US Coast Guard and Army Air Corps.

The design is based on the original I did back in 1998. I'm no designer so I figure 15 years later it was time for an upgrade. Still a part of the design is the lens aperture blades in red and yellow, replicating a Spanish roundel as a tip of the hat to my family heritage. Replacing the Tomcat in the design, the F-5F. This should come as no surprise to anyone, nor should the livery. Patches will be coming in the new year as well as a new website, blog etc as I ramp up operations here.  

Please check out Bryan's work at his webpage and send him some work or just flat out buy some of his products, he's a good man and great artist: http://www.bryansnuffer.com/

Sunrise Harrier at Sun n' Fun 2012
© Jose M.Ramos fuji@ramosavitionphotos.com An AV-8B+ from VMA-542 Tigers greets the dawn at Sun N' Fun 2012. The "Plus" modification to the AV-8B Night Attack Harrier came into being in the early 1990's and added surplus APG-65 Radars from the F/A-18 Legacy Hornet fleet which was upgrading to the APG-73. The addition of a radar to the Harrier significantly increased its capabilities in the air-to-ground and air-to-air arenas. It even serves as...

I'll be part of the staff at this event. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to photograph some extremely unique aircraft & learn from some of best shooters out there. Space is extremely limited.

Not too long ago I had the opportunity to fly with Thom Richard & Precious Metal for a magazine article coming out next year. We had some great weather with some dramatic clouds for out backlit images as we went around our photo circuit. Hope you enjoy it.

Kinda interesting hanging w/ this crowd right now. On the flight suit sleeves there's a smattering of Tomcat 1000+ hrs patches, Topgun patches & USAF Fighter Weapons School Graduate patches. And here I am sporting my Self Loading Baggage patch & not feeling at all the lesser for it. It's all about knowing your place in the hierarchy.
