Airshow Season 2014

  • March 14, 2014

Well last year I said that I was going to give airshow photography a rest for a while so I could follow my true passion of wildlife and landscape photography. This year I was offered a photography gig with a new magazine who I never shot for but have worked with at the Milwaukee shows in the past with Media access. They are Airshow News Magazine, and they are one of the biggest if not the biggest airshow magazine out there to shoot for. So this year I'll be working with them and covering both the Rockford and Chicago airshows, and maybe helping them with Gary and Milwaukee also. I will keep everyone...

Nothing posted for a while thought I would get a shot of a F-16 fighter taking off while at the Janesville Airshow a few years ago.

Eagles Shoot

Had a great photo shoot at the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 13, Lock and Dam 14. There were hundreds of Eagle flying around giving me great photo opportunities. Here is a few from that day.  


First Nature shoot of 2014

  • January 4, 2014

Went to check out Eagles at the McHenry Dam today and found one juvenile eagle flying around but the sun was right into my face and the eagle wanted to stay on the sun side of the river so no good picture of it anyways but I did get some other shots today. Enjoy!!
