|What is Aviation Portraits all abount?
Aviation Portraits is online
I want to illustrate my way of taking photos
of airplanes on this website. I have started taking
photos at airports at the age of 12 in 1989...with
an old pocket camera my mom had given to me. Of
course the planes were very small on the photos, but
I was happy (; However, things changed and so did my
ambitions. After some analog cameras I finally
bought a Canon DSLR (a 300D) in 2004. A 20D followed
and since 2009 I use a Canon 50D.
With the improving hardware, I also developed quite
distinct criteria for any photos to be included in
Only photos, that show an airplane in perfect
sunlight and without anything blocking the view,
will be included. In other words: If there's no sun
or somehting is obstructing part of the plane, I
won't take a photo, no matter how interesting the
plane may be.
To keep the collection interesting and clear, I only
include one photo of a given airline and aircraft
type (not making any difference between a 737-300
and a 737-900 for example). Also the registrations
are of no interest to me.
This results in a rather small collection of photos,
but these photos are of high quality and show a big
variety of airlines and colours.
Of course all photos shown on this website are taken by
myself and may not be used in any way without my
consent. Please contact me, if You want to use one of my
photos or feel like saying something (:
All my photos (aviation and lots of non aviation) can
also be found on my flickr photostream:
