Breakaway Point Fly-in. A lot of round motors and noise!

Some very cool footage of Darryl Greenamyer setting the prop driven record in Conquest 1, which now sits at Udvar Hazy. Rare Bear then broke it years later at 528 and change.

I've been a little slow to start posting more photos since I've been busy shooting.

But here are two from a Pacific theater mock dogfight last year.

Wildcat attacking a Val.





In addition, for those who haven't seen it yet, here is one of my favorite aircraft interior photos, the nose of a B-17. http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1269994/

And while I'm at it, some awesome aerial cinematography shot by a colleague of mine.

The first one is of a Texan over Catalina island...



And the second one is a Stearman over the mountains in Oxnard and Ventura...

Nice Jake! The T-6 cinematography is wonderful. Can you give us some technical info on that? Platform, equipment, etc.?

Another FMAO assignment today. Took me over two hours to get downtown, the three hours of outside shooting. Not enough snow to get the feel my client and I were looking for, so it was most likely a preparatory run for when we really get some snow.

I wasn't on set for that one unfortunately, so I don't know all the details.

He did post this though, "We shot the aerials from an Aérospatiale A-Star helicopter, fitted with a Wolfe Air Gyron gyro-stabilized camera mount, containing an Arri Alexa, with an Angenieux Optimo 24-290mm lens. The images were recorded in ArriRaw format to an on-board S-two recorder."

FMAO is finding the frozen hot water line under the house, lying on the ground for 20 minutes getting it unfrozen, then rewrapping without gloves...with an 11° windchill temperature.

(Remember, I'm a warm weather guy!)

We have a dozen takers on El Centro already. The five selected will be notified.

Thanks!


I am concerned about this.

There are small aviation photography groups that have been shooting at El Centro for years and lost slots so ISAP could be accommodated. Because he told me, I know what Larry's long-range plans are for places like El Centro and it does not bode well for non-ISAP groups. If ISAP is the premier and preeminent aviation photography group they claim to be, why don't they have the horsepower to arrange their own photography opportunities at El Centro? These existing smaller groups have worked very hard over the year to forge strong relationships with the fine folks at El Centro and should not be negatively impacted by ISAP's desire to provide its members access? Why isn't ISAP/Larry more sensitive and respectful to the smaller groups? And let's not blame this on the PAO's at El Centro. If ISAP/Larry knew their request would result in these other groups losing slots, then ISAP/Larry should have withdrawn out of respect to the smaller groups.

Did anyone or other non-ISAP groups loss access, slots or were otherwise restricted due to ISAP's attendance to Sun-N-Fun this year? I hope not.

Dear Jeff,

The Blue Angels offered the opportunity to ISAP. My guess would be that they didn't say, "we're bumping other photographers for you". I see your point, but unfortunately it is a fact that in most rare shooting opportunities, there are a limited number of slots. We, as photographers probably rarely think, or are even cognizant of, the person who didn't get the slot, the client, or the assignment that we landed.

Yes, ISAP will have a substantial presence at SNF, and we will have some very special shooting opportunities. Once again, because of the relationships we have built, those opportunities most likely won't go to other photographers. Some might see this as a reason to join and contribute time and talent to the organization.

Dear Jim:

I am familiar with coordinating access at El Centro. There are two general ways it is achieve; through the PAO's office and through an individual squadron. For example, I recently shot at El Centro in coordination with a Harrier squadron from the east coast. While they certainly coordinated with the PAO's office, all access and chaperoning was provided by the squadron. They determined how many folks they could accommodate - not the PAO. When the PAO's office is responsible for a photocall such as the February visit and they provide all the chaperoning and security, then the PAO's office determines the number of photographers they can accommodate.

I offer that background to suggest that if ISAP/Larry have forged a nice relationship with the Blues (something I think is wonderful for ISAP), then the Blues could have easily hosted the ISAP shooters on nearly any day they wanted without impacting other groups.

The fact is that slots have been reduced for this photocall and the only thing that I am aware is different (this year's visit compared to last year) is ISAP's participation. I'm happy for ISAP/Larry to explore and develop relationships that benefit its members beyond the annual symposium. That being said, I also think respect for existing non-ISAP groups is appropriate and would demonstrate ISAP's class and global support for aviation photography at the grass roots level.

Had Larry not told me of his long-range plans for ISAP and photocalls like El Centro, maybe I wouldn't be concerned. I hope I'm wrong about this and my concern is misplaced.

In the interest of fairness, I looked into this and the email chain surrounding it. Larry was offered this, and the SNF opportunity while he was with The Blues at ICAS. The emails, and Larry's personal account, indicate to me that the additional slots were added because of the request from The Blues, and not taken away from any other groups. We expect several of the team members to attend the symposium. I can only imagine that the relationships we forge will bring about more and more of these opportunities for ISAP members, that's our job as leadership. Personally, most of the board can have these opportunities any time we want them, our motivation is to provide them when we can for people who don't have that level of access.

Thanks for the additional information Jim. I guess this is just a case of ISAP gets added to the photocall, other groups lose slots, and one thing has nothing to do with another.

Regarding the boards work to provide more opportunities for its members, I think that's great. However, if it takes on an approach that this will happens at all costs and that other groups lose their opportunities, I have an problem with that. And that is precisely what Larry was talking to me about.

I know Larry pretty well, he is dedicated to ISAP, but the reason he is leads back to his heart for people who are young in our profession, hungry for knowledge and opportunity. He is the last person who would edge someone out just because he could.

Truthfully, I don't always share his enthusiasm for cultivating people who would love to step right in and go head to head with me for an assignment. His vision is one of training, instilling professionalism, and bringing people up through the photographic ranks. You know me, I have a kind heart, but I'm a realist. You train someone, tell them what/who/how, and you have just created another person who has the capability of diluting your client base. Altruism aside, that's a dumb move, especially when even the creme de la creme in the aviation photography market are earning a fraction of a living. Because of the relationships we've built here, none of the above applies within the the MA2A walls, outside of those boundaries, intelligent competitive practices ensue.

I know that these days we are supposed to be "fair and equal", I listened to the state of the union address, and the nausea still lingers. Would I ever intentionally fill a spot that has already been spoken for because I could? I think everyone knows the answer to that. Would I knowingly accept an opportunity, or assignment, that was being offered because my relationships gave me the inside track? Most certainly, every time! There's this movement afoot that wants to give a trophy to everyone for showing up, dumb down excellence and achievement because it diminishes someone else. I strongly believe in professional courtesy and ethics, but am equally zealous about individual motivation and aspiration. The current movement seeks to destroy the latter. As I said earlier in this conversation, every job any of us earn, is a job someone else wanted, and for a myriad of reason, we got it, they didn't. Does one use nefarious means to achieve our goal? Hopefully not! Should we use very talent, relationship, hard won trick of the trade to snatch it from any and all that seek the same opportunity? Absolutely! The other effect this should have, that is completely lost on the equality/fairness crowd, is the fact that the outcome should kindle the desire to build a better mouse trap within the person who came in second so as to minimize the chances of that happening in the future.

So, to alleviate any confusion, ISAP didn't knowingly swoop in and take spots from anyone. We were offered an opportunity and we happily accepted for our members. Anything different would be like being offered an assignment and asking the client if there was anyone else who wanted it, before we accepted it.
