Flying with “Dusty”

“Show up and you’ll fly.” This basics of aviation photography came true again for me this last week. At the Texas Flying Legends Museum working on the documentary when my good friend Rosie came up and asked, “available to fly?” The answer was obvious, “heck ya!” The photo mission though was to be one of the most unique ones I’ve had. My subject was “Dusty” from the Disney animation Planes. Our family are HUGE Planes fans so this was simply the coolest thing to do! “Dusty’s” pilot is Rusty (not makin that up) and is a really great guy. So Rusty, Dusty, Bernie (Cherokee / photo platform pilot) and I briefed the brief sunset flight and took off. It was such a hoot to watch ALL the kids go crazy when “Dusty’s” prop turns and then takes to the skies. So many smiles and waves.

Yes, I have a very active imagination and when it comes to telling the visual story, it really helps. Also working with my good friends the Texas Flying Legends Museum who brought history to life before my camera! Shot 11k images yesterday working on a project that was filmed by the Kelby crew. Lots more to come but wanted to share at least one photo to tease to keep checking in. Shot with a D4 (thx and...

Houston, We Do Not have a Problem!

No, this is not a great photo, not even good but it’s one I will always treasure. That’s because behind that TFLM Corsair is Houston Control. Being a kid who remembers where he was when Apollo 11 landed on the moon, having it in the background is darn cool! In TX shooting and having a great time. Home to get more posted....
