My question is pretty simple, do you only shoot aircrafts, or you aslo like other situations like landscapes or portraits?
I of course like to shoot airliners, but i also like landsacpe especially at sunset, also moving things, especially water (I.E: waterfalls or sea) and I also sometime like to do some portraits.
I don't know if this post really belongs here in the Aviation photography, but I just feel a bit curious to know what all the photographers here like to shoot.

Funny you should ask. I never was much into photography until I started shooting airplanes last year. But lately, I have found myself spending LESS time shooting airplanes and MORE time shooting landscape / nature stuff. I'm not sure why this is. Yea, I love the outdoors, but I think it's also because I find nature photography to more relaxing. Standing at the end of a runway all day stressed out that I missed 'that perfect shot' isn't much fun...

We have something in common, before i started shooting airplanes I had not much interest for landscapes photography but now it's totally different. I like to shoot a lot of things, like portraits and landscapes but i also very like aircrafts.

Well i am crazy about airplanes since i was a kid. But started with photography just a short time ago. Of course i love taking pictures of airliners but not only. At my visit zu San Diego last month i took a lot of pictures at the Aerospace Museum, the Car Museum with all those oldtimers not to forget to mention all those outdoor pictures of San Diego and many other places. Back home there are plenty of possibilities of making wonderful outdoor pictures. I am lucky because my home is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Austria. Lot´s of mountains and lakes right close to me.
It is a lot of fun experimenting with the camera gear.
Much success with aviaton photography and whatever else to all of you.

I usually shot portraits and landscapes (portraits in black and white, developed in my own lab), otherwise I'm an aviation enthusiast and I also love aviation photography. But I have much much more photos with portraits, people and landscapes than aviation shots. That's the reason, why I have so few shots here on A.N. (...and not the time to scan them ).

I spent most of the 80s after college, stinging for a number of newspapers, as well as freelancing for the wires off and on, while living in London from 84-86. I have been shooting stock since the late 80s, and at the tail end of the 80s I started to turn my lenses, to one of my passions....commercial aviation. Very slowly at first, gradually building up a nice portfolio of aviation work, of which I have only a small selection on A.Net. Most of my work now is in the area of stock assiginment photography.
When I think about my time living in London, I never took the time to visit LHR/LGW, for photographic purposes. Suffice it to say, I have been kicking myself for not doing that, for many years now!

I've been shooting pics since I was about twelve years old. I used to use 110 and 126 cameras, then graduated to a K-1000 and so on.
I love to travel with my family (mostly to wildlife refuges and preserves, etc.) I burn many, many, many rolls of film on each trip. I like to shoot wildlife(obviously) - mainly waterfowl and other birds, landscape, architecture, nature, portraits ...
I've been shooting aircraft for about 12 years - quite a bit more in the last 3 years, though.
I have even turned my 5 year old daughter into a shutterbug, and she's pretty good! She even likes to shoot aircraft from time to time.

NUDES??? You lucky jerk...well, hopefully they are women : )
For me, it's Aviation and that's it. Although some portraits. One thing that is nice about av. photography, is that the planes dont bitch about how they look. That sucks bigtime with people. "My hair is screwed up" "I look fat" planes just dont give a damn...

I shoot anything & everything - aircraft is a fairly recent addition due to relocating to an area with a range of local(ish) airfields. I like to vary my subject matter to avoid getting "stale", and find that techniques learned in one area often transfer to another.
