My article on

My Lufthansa 747-8 D-ABYF as it pulls up to Gate 7, Terminal 1 at JFK. First flight of 8 747s around-the-world!

Hi folks!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I contributed an article to and it’s been published!

How to Photograph Airplanes is a great photo site I’ve been reading for several years now and I especially like the outdoor wildlife and travel articles. The lens reviews are equally fantastic and I like the insights into the design features on the higher-end lenses.

I decided to write an article on airplane photography which is something I obviously take fairly seriously but enjoy a lot. For me, the ideal airplane photograph is one which looks cool and visceral (or serene or any intense emotion) but that also has a lot of technical quality. I like big prints and lots of resolution which can provide a lot of fine texture where wing panels and runways and smoke and mist is involved. It goes without saying that I try to be very tough on myself with focus and sharpness and post-production as well. I don’t always get there but I always try. I hope you enjoy the article!

And stay tuned for an update on my 747 around-the-world attempt! Flight #1 is in the books! Flight #2 is coming up soon…
