Doolittle Reunion – Jake’s Take

One of the great pleasures for Sharon & I is being able to work with our sons now they’ve moved out on their own. Jake is a great shooter and I just love shooting with him so it was a great thrill having him with us in Dayton for the Reunion. Not only is he a great shooter, he’s real good at the business side as well. I have lost count how much he has got into print already this year. His latest, from the Doolittle Reunion is out and you can see a sample on the web AirShowStuff Magazine. You click on View Issue Online and get to page 50, you’ll start seeing his images, he has a bunch there starting with two doubletrucks! Great job bud…just leave something for the old...

“I Didn’t Appreciate Them Before”

By the third day of our K&M Adv in SD, we’d chased clouds a bunch. The activity was amazing with the moisture in the air and the heat coming off the landscape. The formations I’ve already posted demonstrate just how dynamic the skies had been. It’s when we stopped for this formation that one of the adventurers came up to me and said, “I didn’t appreciate them before!” He went on to say he had always seen clouds but he had never really seen them as subjects, as sculptures floating around to be photographed.And when there is this much activity in the skies, fleeting! We were driving down the road when Chris who was riding shotgun pointed up and smiled. Driving, I couldn’t see what he was seeing but knew to find a place to pullover. Everyone was driving with a camera in their lap since getting out “Chinese Fire Drill” fashion happened when on adventure. I got to see this great cloud, saw it’s dynamics and knew I...

Doolittle Reunion – Plane & Pilot

I was incredibly fortunate to participate in the 70th Reunion of the Doolittle Raiders last month in Dayton, OH. Jake & I shot a boat load of images and written a number of pieces on the reunion. My first one is out in Plane & Pilot and you can see the web version here Doolittle Reunion. But I would encourage to pick up a hardcopy if you’d like to see what the D4 can do. All these images were taken with the D4 which includes the doubletruck. The results are stunning as far as I’m concerned but I invite you to see for yourself. The photo above was taken from the nose of “Maid in the Shade,” my ride to the Reunion. What you see are 18 B-25s lined up before us, those that landed before we did and are waiting to taxi over to the static display area. The leaned back as far as I could in the greenhouse and made the shot with the 18AF. The D4...
