J-A,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss, please accept my most sincere condolences.

What a senseless and stupid act, made even more so by reports of locals walking through and picking through the wreckage, and the potential that the flight recorders are being picked through somewhere in Russia.

Take strength from the love and support from family and friends. We are here for you.

Gero

Thanks everybody will relay the messages to my sister.
It's a strange world we live in lets hope that there is some clarity at the end, and that all the details of this disaster will eventually surface and the ones responsible get punished.

F18 Hornet i will keep posting because we must go on

Glenn, I think it's safe to say that you've secured a spot among professional aviation photographers through your work over the last year. Looking back to when we met at Vegas, I can't help but feel like an older brother and just be really, really proud of you.

Attaboy.



Thanks brother! I think about Vegas often and Warner and I were just reminiscing about it the other day at lunch. Hope to see you soon.

Dear Glenn,

Rodolfo is spot on. I have watched you transition from a guy who loved photography, and shot pretty nice stuff for a hobbyist, to the photographer you are today. I don't think I'm stepping on any toes in saying, you are not only at the top of "your" game, you have diligently worked your way to the top of "The" game. One of the things that really has been a joy to watch, is how you set quiet goals for yourself and then worked your plan. People whine because they don't get access, worse yet, because they have big lenses and don't get access. You didn't know anyone, not a single influential contact, when we first met, all you had was a burning desire to do air to air photography. Through hard, talented work, you now have entrees most can only dream about. I can't think of anyone I'd rather be outshot by............. Congratulations, well deserved Buddy!


Thanks JW. Means a lot coming from somebody I really admire and strive to be close to as good a shooter and person.

At least half the credit must go to the pilots who put it there and keep it there!

that last one is awesome Glenn, can't help but think it would have been better without Whelan's(?) plane for that shot though.

Don't feel bad buddy how bad the grief may be, life still goes on.
I'm glad my sister wasn't on that plane maybe selfish to say, but life is hard and we have to go on.
My sisters daughter arrives tomorrow at Schiphol from a trip to South Africa we had to repatriate them early from there holiday..

Damn Glenn, that is a beautiful shot! The Blues are my favorite demo team and you grabbed some killer shots. Looking at the images you and Jay turn out are the reason I strive to get better. Good Job!

I am v-e-r-y delinquent in posting these days but spent some time catching up in the thread. J A - words cannot express the grief and disappointment in humanity you must feel.

Glenn - just outstanding work! Perseverance pays off - you have proven that with skill and the 'want to' you can do whatever you want to.

I have not had anything aviation related to shoot in quite some time. I hope a quick test shot of the wife will do for now. I promise to get off my butt and show at least 1/4 the hard work all the rest of these guys are putting in!

Here's a quick try - I'm not brilliant at it (there is a slight concave curve on the wing leading edge that shouldn't be there, and the clouds aren't quite right) it didn't take long but just for starters:
