What is necessary to be an Airliners.Net photographer. I see many of you just traveling around in many airlines and taking pictures. Is this a job possibility here or what would someone need to do to be an Ailiners.net photographer?

How do they get permission to ride in the cockpits though? I see many in cabin shots. Well I was just curious. Dont flame me for not posting in the right forum by the way im fairly new here and just getting used to the system.

I've just uploaded my first couple of pics, which were denied........but it's all part of the learning. I'm no professional, I just have a real passion for aviation!
I think it's all you need to start with, the passion. Jump out there with your camera, the crew let you know if your pics are up to standard or not and what you can do to improve.......great way to start aviation photography!
As GLAGAZ said, this should probably be in the Photography Forum, you'd get better answers there...

There is no requirement to be an a.net photographer other than having access to a decent camera and posessing good photo-processing skills. You don't have to "sign up" to become a photographer; you just take some shots, edit them to the a.net standard, and upload them to the site through the upload page! If the a.net screeners deem them to be of a.net quality, they will then be added to the database. It's that easy!
"About the only way to look at it, just a pity you are not POTUS KFLLCFII, seems as if we would all be better off."

Cockpit shots: You have to be a lucky man. If you have a pilot friend that's not a problem anymore to take pictures inside the cockpit. Sometimes the captain ask me not to upload the pictures, but personally I take photos for my own collection not for a.net. Of course I have some pictures online, but most of the photographers here, take those pictures just for their albums, collections etc. And A.net is a very good opportunity to share it

I am currently a student at the local flying school, so I'm out at the airport almost every day, and my camera always comes with me. There usually isn't too much interesting, but I've had a few opportunities to go inside some very nice aircraft. I'm not one of the spotters who goes out to the airport specifically to take pictures, but I definitely enjoy taking them when I can.
