RAF Photographer of the Year

Thought this was worth sharing.

I know there are some aircraft enthusiasts on here.

This guy has better access than almost anybody, but the images are (IMHO) superb

Re: RAF Photographer of the Year

Yes I agree saw this earlier fantastic pics would love to know what camera and lens he used.

My only concern was if he's taking pictures who is flying the jet fighter

Re: RAF Photographer of the Year

Have to agree with you both, they are stunning images and I would love that job. I like engines and top of the list are Merlins followed by jets. The Typhoon shots are fantastic.

Re: RAF Photographer of the Year

My favourite is the opening shots of the Spitfire starting up!!

They do have good access and I remember from my days in the military, they were able to join us on some of our training missions that delivered stunning photos.

They are well trained and have good equipment as well as providing a vital documentary service.

It's probably on auto pilot
