I’ve been an aviation enthusiast since my first ride on an airliner as a young child. I started sharing pictures online back in the late 1990s in the early days of the web. In 2002 I discovered that there is a market for aviation-related pictures so I began to expand my experience and equipment even more. I’ve met many like-minded people through this hobby and have made lots of friends and acquaintances over the years. As a result I’ve learned a great deal about airplanes, flying, and the history of aviation. I love flying and sharing my passion with aviation enthusiasts.
As a photographer, I don’t do weddings. My subjects are aircraft and the people who build, maintain, and fly them as well as the view from above. I’ve learned a LOT about photography through this hobby and have been able to capture a wide range of images from the interesting to the routine to the stunning that document aircraft operations at their best.
Most of my aviation pictures are online at airliners.net, jetphotos.net, and Flickr. These high quality digital images are available for commercial, media, and personal use. See the Aviation Photography page for more information. A partial list of clients I have produced images for is on the left.
Flightline Aviation Media is more than just great images. I enjoy sharing my knowledge through the Planespotting Guide. I created the original version in 2003 and have received countless emails from aviation enthusiasts around the world. You can learn more about how to identify many of the planes that you’ll see at a typical airport along with some helpful resources and places I’ve found where you can get a great view.
I created this version of the website in 2011 and in 2020 embarked on a complete redesign of these pages which will allow future expansion and new content. While the Planespotting Guide will help you identify the different types of commercial airliners, the Aircraft Spotlight section will highlight the history, specs, and photos of specific aircraft types that I’ve seen over the past two decades. All of the photos shown or linked throughout the site are mine unless otherwise noted, and the technical drawings are from Norebbo Design Studio.
