«Never was so much owed by so many to so few» These words of Churchill summarise the pride of a whole nation towards the pilots of the RAF. That feeling of admiration not only has remained intact until nowadays, but survives in its culture, revives through its air festivals and […]
Selling photographs of airplanes is not usually a priority in the career of a spotter, defined as an aviation photographer who exclusively dedicated to his hobby. It is something that happens occationally and it is a huge lever, more in a profesional way, rather than speaking in economical terms. One […]
If I think in an army photographer, the intrepid Robert Capa always comes to my mind, dodging bullets in Omaha beaches, chasing his highest priority which cost him his life: “If your pictures aren´t good enough, you aren´t close enough”. Really Capa was not a military photographer, he was a […]
It’s been a while since I follow Jorge Guardia’s photography, in fact, I felt tempted to write this article in several occasions. However I always wondered if his photos were a mere spark of talent or just begginer’s luck.
This short reel for aerial cinematographer Roger Tonry is a compilation of footage shot from Clay Lacy’s Astrovision equipped Lear Jet, Wolfe Air’s Vectorvision jet, and even a modified B-25 bomber from the Planes of Fame. The acquisition formats are equally varied. They range from 35mm film, Red Epic to […]
What is happening with sharpness in the UK!!! It is extraordinary. We have seen it with Mark Jayne in the Mach Loop and now Nigel Paine surprises us with the warbirds. It is almost impossible to write something that can match these photos, any words left just sound boring. There […]
We are in 2015, odd year, year of “MAKS”, the most important air festival in Russia besides a multimillionaire business. As I have a weakness for Russian planes, I have been following for years, on flickr, whom I think is one of the best Russian spotter: Vladislav “Hokum” Perminov. His […]
Everyone has dreamed with a getaway to Amsterdam to have a glorious journey of spotting, some others prefer Heathrow, the stronger spotters choose Axalp or The Mach Loop and the exotic ones choose Saint Marteen. But these getaways are overshadowed by the pilgrimage performed by four of our spotters around […]
↑ Tecnam P96G | EC-DP4 | Canon EOS 5D Mark II 28mm f7.1 30s ISO100 Medicion Parcial. Daniel Guerra (c) Demasiado calor para dormir. Nos escapamos al campo de vuelo, ya de madrugada, con la idea de fotografiar la via lactea con el avión como protagonista, pero claro, aunque no […]
Esta mañana casi nos comen los mosquitos. Habia miles y con bastante mala leche. Asi nos han recibido a las 7 de la mañana en la pista de Trillo, donde Rafael Ariza tenia programados un par de vuelos y nosotros queriamos aprovechar la oportunidad de sacar algunas instantaneas a contraluz, […]
Cuando veo la foto de mi aeropuerto habitual pero hecha desde “otro” sitio, me parece totalmente nueva, inédita, y eso que a lo mejor el spotter de turno simplemente le apetecía hacerla desde unos cientos de metros mas allá, desde el monticulo vecino. El aeropuerto es el mismo y el […]
Almost all of us have started “plane spotting” with a stereotyped vision of aviation. For better or worse, we all started by taking the same type of photographs based on the rules established by specialized websites. Every spotter dream is to share his or her own photographs in these websites […]
(also in French) Late at night the Airports are like diamonds. They show themselves brighter and shining, hiding their miseries under an almost futuristic disturbing atmosphere, full of shiny lights able to multiplicate the colours, highlight contrast and get amazing reflections which are impossible during the day. Briefly, airports become […]

If wars consisted of photographic battles, the Brazilian Air Force would have the best army in the world and the responsible would be no other than Johnson Barros. The photographs of Johnson Barros for FAB are not only testimonials, they are masterpieces; the product of a very personalized style with […]
Estoy convencido de que algunos aviones son dueños de su destino. Surcan los cielos hasta que un buen día deciden que ha llegado el momento de descansar. Son conscientes del paso del tiempo, de cómo sus compañeros han sido abandonados en aeropuertos, donde poco a poco están siendo canibalizados, destrozados, […]
Empezamos el 2015 con producto nacional, el A400M ensamblado en Sevilla de la mano de Richard Sánchez, spotter Malagueño y sin embargo amigo. Esta foto está tomada en Gibraltar, LXGB, con la maestria que caracteriza a Richard, jugandosela a 1/125!!. Los datos de la fotografia son:

En este link os dejo un articulo (en ingles) muy interesante sobre los vuelos a baja cota. Merece la pena aunque solo sea por ver las fotos.
Maybe the name Mark Jayne doesn´t sound familiar to you but if one mentions MJAviation, Mach Loop will immediately cross your mind.
