One of my favorite places to take photographs is on an airplane. There is not much to do while in flight and the results are always thrilling and unique. It also is nice to have these memories to look back on.To get the best shots, its important to follow a few rules. I ensure that I sit in the window seat and generally try to sit close to the wing. This allows me to get the airplane in the shot if I desire.This photograph was taken on a thirty minute... continue reading

Who has never dreamed of extraordinary abilities to control inanimate matter, to overcome gravity, to prove that the laws of nature can be tamed. Oh yes, I will show you in a few easy steps how to do it ... no, no, no ... I do not mean closing your eyes and dreams, instead let's get ready for a photo walk.We will need magical equipment; a tripod, a cable time trigger (in the absence of an intervalometer, a friendly soul) and an object that we liven up (e.g. a book). Of course,... continue reading
Nice that an airport varies so much with each visit. There seems to be different weather and new airlines each time.One wheel landing from prop plane Coming in low Military helicopter Local Airline A colourful new airline Double Decker Snow on the hills continue reading
Last summer, an airshow took place in my town. So I decided to try this new photographic sector (for me). Few months ago I bought a Sigma 70-300 apo lens. It is a relative cheap lens which entered in my budget but I'm very satisfied with it and at the airshow it worked fine too. I've four images of this event on DT, all with editorial license because sponsors or other banners are on the airplanes. Not much to say about the technique. No tripod, because the exposures were very fast to stop the movement.... continue reading
Capoeira is a Brazilian mixture of martial arts, acrobatics, dancing, singing, playing music on self made instruments and last but not least - real fun.During a public performance in Ravensburg/South-Germany I sneakedto the stage and made these photos with my 50mm (!) lens:It seems as if gravity is not valid for these athletes. It was a feast for the eyes towatch them!All photos are editorial. continue reading
Over Easter I upgraded my equipment to a better camera and lense.Travelling from the UK to Germany I had time to experiment - as well as shoot new photographs.Sometimes random ideas are best - as this aircraft wing, coming back after an enjoyable 2 weeks in Germany, I was sitting in the aircraft seeing the empty seats behind me and the view out of the window gave me an idea.So, finishing my sandwich I got up - took my camera, shot some photographs and took a seat again to enjoy my coffee... continue reading
Recently I was lucky enough to get a helicopter ride for free (something that is not at all common here in Switzerland, maybe in the US it's easier), so here are a few pieces of advice in case you get invited to one (or decide to pay for it).- helicopters are rather small, so you may not have the leisure of being able to swap lenses. Stick to one type of shot, or make a tradeoff in quality by using a superzoom lens- ask the pilot what the route will be, so that you know on which side of the... continue reading
I love eagles. I am very fortunate to live only a one hour drive from a place where the eagles gather in late fall and early winter to feast on spawning salmon. Harrison Mills, British Columbia is home to literally hundreds of Bald Eagles at this time of year. It is quite a sight to see as many as 60 eagles perched in the same tree! Today I took time off work to go out there and enjoy their beauty; I was treated to an extra special sight...not only lots of Bald Eagles, but also a Golden Eagle.... continue reading
