Do you have the location this picture taken?

A perspective I haven't seen before, always looking up at them. Too bad the grain tanks were empty.

Jim Richardson

Andrew, it was near Goodland, Kansas (southeast of Goodland, I think.) Didn't have a GPS unit at the time it was taken. Hope this helps.

James Jones

If you're shooting toward the back, how did you see what you were shooting without unbuckling?

It is gratifying to know that even the best are using 172's. I've tried my hand at working with a flight school 172 to get air to ground pictures and it isn't easy. Your work shows the meaning of "chance favors the prepared mind" very well.

Are you familiar with Albrecht Brugger? Truly amazing aerial photographer (shot film with some custom made Zeiss gear). Zeiss has a PDF on him: http://www.zeiss.ro/C12567A8003B8B6F/EmbedTitelIntern/Inno6_04_09e_PDF/$File/inno6e_04_09.pdf

Jim Richardson

James,
Well, there are two things here. To be more precise, I'm looking somewhat backwards, more like about about 45 degrees back from straight out to the side (where the strut is.) Then, yes, when I get in the air I loosen my belt enough that I can turn in the seat some. If we run into turbulence I cinch back down.
Didn't know Abrecht Brugger until you mentioned him. I see he was shooting at least some of his stuff out of a Cub which gives you a kind of nice view to the front, and that makes lining up a lot of stuff a lot easier. Also he was shooting with longer lenses (I see he had a 300mm Zeiss lens on medium format) which makes positing the aircraft somewhat less critical. He has obviously done a LOT of aerial photography.
My personal hero for aerial photography is another Swiss photographer, Georg Gerster, who has compiled a truly stunning body of work. Long before Yann Arthus-Bertand burst upon the scene Gerster was one of those photographers who made me jealous. I had the honor of working with him when I was an assignment editor and photographer on the Day in the Life of America book. He was a gentleman and a consummate professional. A photographer worth paying attention to.

Outstanding photograph! I also enjoyed your description of the process.

My dad, William A, Garnett (perhaps you've heard of him), did both the piloting and photography to increase his ability to be in the right place at the right time. Dad never used a motor drive as he felt you would end up with two shots just each side of optimal.

His 1955 Cessna 170-B was the perfect platform. I've inherited the bird and have been shooting some aerials myself recently. It takes a lot of practice. I certainly appreciate your work.
