Peter, I like the composition on the Hustler.


+1 that is a very intriguing plane for me, and your POV shows how little clearance there was between the landing gear and that tank...which looks just massive from this angle.

Got any more Hustler shots?

Edit - dangit - busted at ToP

Got this while watching my kids swimming around in the surf at Assateague Island, MD yesterday. Didn't hear these guys coming (there were two of them) and so I'm doubly busted with a 98% frozen prop. I swear there is a smidgeon of blur in there

A hearty congrats on the new clients Jim - I would expect no less from you, and it leaves me scratching my head about the other guy...

Nice shot of the T-34C. Lot of fun to fly, have just a little over 1200 hours in it (early 80's). That one is out of NAS Oceana, Weapons school. Used as spotter aircraft...still in Training Command colors. Regardless of "frozen" prop....I like it.

For those who play along on Facebook, you may recall I mentioned being contacted by the Thunderbirds about a particular shot I had. Here's the backstory...

I was contacted by the US Air Force Thunderbirds to see if I might have a particular image in my archives from the Aviation Nation airshow at Nellis AFB back in 2007. At first, my only impetus was a voicemail from a Tech Sgt Richmond in the Public Affairs office but it was the forwarded message from another Air Force family that the team had received that put the lump in my throat:

"Dear Thunderbird Team,

I have a special request. My wife was watching a video of one of your performances recently and it brought her to tears. The video was of a 6-ship T-bird missing man formation. When I asked her why she was crying over something we had seen many times during our 2 tours at Nellis, she responded "it reminds me of Grant." On May 17, 2013, while on leave on a farm in PA, my 6 year old son Grant was tragically killed when a farm horse kicked him in the chest and he sustained unsurvivable injuries. The wound is deep and I guess this T-bird video reminded her of our USAF family and the 6 kids we have, with one of them who flew up to heaven just 2 months ago. Do you happen to have any high resolution pictures (the more the better) you could send me of a 6-ship missing man formation (preferably with the departing aircraft still in frame, but separated from the remaining 5-ship)? My plan is to print a poster of this along with my son's picture in his brothers' room (my 8, 6 and 4 yr old boys all shared the same room).

With much appreciation,

XXXXX XXXXX Lt Col, USAF
Chief, USAF Red Team"


Needless to say, I was never more willing in my life to supply an image on request...

This is why I choose to be a photographer.

Jay, that is wonderful, just wonderful, and not all that surprising, given your hard earned standing in such things.

And in other news, it appears that Jay and I are forming the MA2A sub-group of 'People who have got Gene Soucy onto the cover of a magazine'! Coming soon to an FBO near you...

Grabbing a salad at McAlister's and winding down a 15 hour day. Funny, at a time when I've been thinking about how I might scale this operation back a bit, I seem to be adding huge clients at a record pace. Two of the world's largest commercial property managers/developers were added to my client list today. Sheesh! To be twenty five and know what we know today huh?

And Zim, I know "No is a complete sentence", but man, the marketer in me has a hard time uttering it in these situations. They say if you do something for 30 days it becomes a habit, well try 32 years, plus all the years I was in training for this job!

I suppose I can mitigate some taxes if I charge my day rate, and use the Pilatus to get me to and from the shoot.

thanks very much for the background on the planes. I thought they may have been out of the NASA facility by Chincoteague, but I guess they got a bit more of a ride. They had gone north about an hour prior.

Jay, that is wonderful that you were able to supply the appropriate image. After reading the story behind the request, I choked up a little when I saw the image. I guess I must be getting more sentimental as I get older.

Well done, Jay. It must be most rewarding that you were able to go back into your archives and find just the right image for this request
