The business had 2 great years, and this one has started better than those! But I've taken a slight detour, and become what they call the "Photography Champion" at Triggertrap. I've been following the company since they were a kickstarter campaign, and a job opened up in Bristol that I just had to have a go at. Luckily they've given me freedom to keep shooting the shoots I want to hit, but having a "stable" job gives me the freedom to cut out the shoots I had to do just to worry about my bottom line. Best of both worlds I think! Plus laser triggers are really, really cool.


Nice work if you can get it, Rich! I've got a full set of Triggertrap kit coming to me from the Kickstarter campaign. Looking forward to wringing it out.

Airbus unveiled their newest aircraft this morning - a revolutionary GA aircraft.

I think they have one of those in the baggage compartment of the Prince's A330 that I'm shooting

I'm not going to make it over to the JRB show unfortunately. This week has been filled with 4:30am departures, I'm beat and thinking about chilling at HQ this weekend.

Today began at 4, early dawn shoot, Tracon radar facility shoot after that, aerials from then til now. I have done four different assignments since I left home this morning. Productive, but exhausting. What a day to shoot aerials!

It's being put through its paces at the moment! I'm sure you got the Kickstarter update though, there are a few different shell casings kicking around the office, it's going to look very cool. Itching to get my hands on a working prototype!

Got more L glass and thinking about the fabled 1Dx replacement when it finally appears!

I moved to Bristol a couple of years ago now Niall, to be closer to BAE and Airbus offices here. I've been commuting a lot to London, which isn't too bad as my place isn't too far from the station here in Bristol. If you're going to RIAT let me know, I'm definitely down on the Saturday, and considering a Sunday trip too - going to wait to see on the final lineup before I buy a ticket for Sunday though. Everyone loves a bit of L glass, might rent the 500mm mk2 for RIAT this year to see if it's a decent bump over the mk1.

Apple called me today to see if I would be interested in giving in store presentations on my Mac workflow as it relates to the business of photography. Something to consider, you know, "idle hands……" and all that

Video your presentation Jim and then sell it as a training aid via the internet - either CD or straight download. I'd be the first in line to purchase

Thanks for the vote of confidence Jeff, but your copy would be complimentary my friend. Besides, how could I charge a guy who is the guru of post processing?

Today was the 1st flight.

It's an interesting concept - 2 seater electric fan powered aircraft. Fighter style seating layout. Currently limited to 30mins flight time due to battery life. Aiming for 1 hour.

Also, they are planning a 4 seat version that will have the electric fans as well as a conventional engine. Similar to how a Toyota Prius works. This would allow for take off and landings to be with the electric engines and cruise with the conventional engine.

Ultimate goal is a 70-90 seater powered by these hybrid engines with an endurance of around 3 hours - similar to current commuter aircraft but with much lower noise emissions and fuel burn.

How did you like that new colt image Jeff? I thought that would capture your rancher's heart

Hopefully a bit of a comeback starting for me here, been out of pocket a bit. Today I met up with Lady Jo and a couple others at the AOPA fly in. Good times.

We're probably going on the Saturday. (My Brother-in-law from Dublin wants to do RIAT on the Saturday and Flying Legends on the Sunday - I'm up for it if he is!) I have the 500 Mk2 but it's a heavy beast (although I've just bought a monopod and Wimberly-type head to try with it) and prefer the 300 2.8 plus x2 extender.
