Heres my likely final practice today before the contest:



I'll be out later in September dude..you can show me how its done using only one hand! (flying that is)

Good luck at the contest. As long as it's not around Reno time... we'll have to go fire up the V-12!

Breitling promo video for Reno:

#t=0

I am so tired of fast jump cuts with a rock sound track. How awesome would it be to view all the raw footage (with sound!) that went into this?

Indeed. The FP-7's, CP 4106 and 4107, run as a married pair (while technically they can run separately they don't), they used to always travel with the CP 3084 (a GP38 painted in the same livery) with them because, well, they break down a lot...but starting this year they have been rockin it solo. They're only used for Royal Canadian Pacific trips. Which are usually two or three day excursions around the loop from Calgary to Lethbridge to Golden then through the mountains via the Spiral Tunnels. Five star dining on board and the whole nine yards.

If you happen to have fairly deep pockets you can also charter the train for a day trip to Banff...

Beautiful photos for sure .. nothing that jaw droppin' here .. regular Maryland Airport traffic ..

She's gotta be thinking .. Teterboro at 2 in the afternoon on Labor Day Weekend !!






Some folks are callin' it a day at 2pm in the afternoon - being dropped off from work












So a young 19 yr old female flying a little US NAVY plane dropped in nose first from 4' or so and folding a lot of metal from the props back .. being * stored * in the Maryland Air hangar and this gent flew in just to take a look at it for 5 minutes .. as always - I'm confused .. It's a t-34B but the registry calls it a US NAVY D-45 BEECH.













Some folks enjoy the Pilatus - Easton based












And lastly, the garage door was open again ...... Someday I'll get a good shot of an airplane .. again stuff .... was in the way

Had to get recent photos of myself for a conference at which I'll be speaking. Despite heroic efforts by the photographer, this was about as good as he could make me look...

So I'm trying to get the ball rolling on maybe coming down for Alliance after all...
It's all VERY initial stages of maybe making it work at this point, but I've located direct flights and the works, so it's looking like it could be promising.

Jim, do you have something planned at HQ for the Thursday again this year? if so about what time would you be looking to get things underway? Flight options a plenty up in here.

Rodolfo, I'm no expert, so take this with a grain of salt...and I also have no idea what the conference is for, so my opinion may hold even less value...

But personally, the first one is kind of a contradiction in my opinion, the crossed arms say serious, the smile says fun...doesn't really work for me.

The second seems very anti social, which may also not be the type of message you're trying to send.

Just my 0.02. The lighting looks good, it's just in the case of the conferences that some of my family used to speak at, all the images I've ever seen have given the impression that the person was someone you wanted to listen to talk without knowing anything about them. Sort of an...I dunno...inviting feeling?

Hi Steven,

Great news! HQ Thursday will get rolling late morning on Thursday, and end when we get bored, as if. Keep me posted. Zim generally comes in the day before, as doesJay and Larry. Do what you can. Don't know what my shooting schedule is leading up to Thursday, but I typically head to the hangar early Thursday morning with coolers/drinks etc.

Thanks for the reply. I assume that the FP7's have the 567 series engines. At 60+ years old, I guess I wouldn't run too well if I had worked as hard as those engines have.

Rodolfo,

Had I been commissioned for your assignment, I probably would have approached it with an editorial style. The look I would have been aiming for, as Steven alluded to, would have been strong, but warm. Casual, but not too casual, and I would have used key lighting with a little fill bounce to sculpt your face and take advantage of the character that resides there.

All easy characteristics to delineate, not so easy to bring to digits sometimes. Typically these assignments really challenge a photographer, because unless the subject is one of those model types who can assume the pose when needed, it is up the the shooter to both bring those characteristics out in the subject, and have his or her lighting and compositional ducks lined up, simultaneously. Tall order for sure.

Here is a good example. I had 3 minutes with this gentleman. Key image in an annual report. Very high horsepower, didn't want to be in front of a camera that morning. 3 minutes to get to know him, warm him to whatever degree I might, compose, light, shoot and shake his hand on the way out. That's why these types of assignments run 2 to 3 grand for 3 minutes.

Yes jim, that is pretty much a perfect example of what I would expect to see.

Upon further digging, what I've always thought were FP7's are actually FP9's with the 567C power plant...My mistake. Either way, at over 50 years old they've definitely served their sentence :P

We do also VERY occasionally run a 4-6-4 H1b Hudson that first entered service in 1930, if you think the EMD's look like they're well maintained you should see the inside of the Empress...you could eat off the floor in it. I was down in our ogden shops for training and it was sitting inside and I managed to twist enough arms to get to climb into the cab.

The subject liked it, lamented that he was the age he was, but everyone seemed very pleased. Another bullet dodged in a 32 year firefight I think my stomach was in a knot for days in anticipation of the 3 minutes. I've found that anxiety is productive, because it causes you to live out, in a virtual sense, every possible way a shoot can go south. In most cases a shoot will never go that far south in that many ways (in most cases) so you are so over prepared that it's over before you know it. And no, the knots don't lessen over the years with experience, because the folks who are your subjects just keep getting higher up the food chain so the pressure just continues to mount.

Under the heading of, there's always something cooking at HQ, there's a possibility of a B25 mission the evening of HQ Thursday. Subjects would be corporate stuff, Lear 60, TBM 850, Citation XL, MU2. I'll probably just take a couple of shooters with me, pm me if you feel drawn to those subjects.
