Have you noticed?

When I first started aviation photography at the beginning of last year, I thought that everybody was 30-120 years old, and that I was the youngest out there by far.

I was wrong!

Not only do we have Young photographers, in My opinion we have very talented young photographers, and I think these guys will be the Chris Sheldon or Andy Hunt or Thom........you get the picture...

Lets look,

Yeah You're right about it. I thought it would be adults when I first came here but when I saw kids' pictures on here I thought it was cool that kids and teenagers are doing this too like Jonathin and Mark and some other ones too. Me on the other hand I kinda like it too when 17 year olds are doing this.

Yeah that's how it's like here too. I usually see kids doing other stuff(basketball, bike riding, bad stuff). They also ask me why I like to do this and why I do this. It's nice to hear older people say it's nice to do stuff like this.

I'm 16 and about an hour trip away from YYC depending on traffic and weather. I don't go out to YYC alot but when I get the chance I do. I'm usually out with my friends playing hockey, football, baseball, mountain biking, snowboarding, golfing, and all the other "bad stuff" a teen of my age should be....lol. BUT whenever the oppertunity to goto the airport and spot, I'm there in an instant.

I'm 19 and counting... it's great to still be considered 'young' and in my teens, while at the same time being of legal-drinking age  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Even when I was 15, I knew I had to shoot Kodachrome 64... what can I say, it's in the blood.

Almost forgot about my buddy Richard Austen... he'll soon grace us with his Kodachrome 64 slide-scans and funny comments. All the shots seen by him on the site right now are from his, ahem... "print" days... he has successfully been converted to "die-hard Kodachrome 64 shooter" status... it's quite rare to have 2 buddies in their teens shooting the good-stuff, with the good equipment  Smile/happy/getting dizzy The younger the better I say!  Wink/being sarcastic

IM enjoying my days, been off the shooting and uploading cuz of school exams and bad weather.
AS soon as things beef up I will continue.

These young Generation X guys sure pack a punch.
I never thought there would be so many, I always thought it was 75% adults and 25% 20 under area..

Hi All,

Yeah, it is great to see more and more young people taking pics of airplanes. I started shooting Prints when I was 10 or 11 when I would go out to the airport once in awhile. Now, I am 18 and have been shooting Kodachrome 64 since March 2000 and am now shooting shitloads of the stuff compared to when I first started. I remember shooting Prints out at the good old Avis Lot here in Vancouver, and I met Rob there and he told me to give K64 a shot, and I did, and there has been no looking back.

It is amazing to see all the changes that have happened. I just wish I had been shooting K64 in the days of Canadian DC-10s etc.

Aviation Photography is one hell of a hobby...best part about it is that there is always something new to photograph and you get to enjoy being outside in the nice sunny weather. Also, you get to make many new friends from around the world in this hobby.

Anyway, the younger the better. It's nice to be out there with people your age too passing the time just chillin'. Only downside I can think of with this hobby is that there never seems to be any prime chicks taking pics.

Best Regards,

Richard

I am 18 in 6 weeks (at last!) which will mean I am an adult and I will feel somewhat more of a 'grown-up'!

Yes, it's nice to see that I am not alone in my crazy hobby.

I'm almost 18 and I got interested in avation photography sometime around Febuary last year. All I had then was a 50mm lens. All my shots on a.net are with either the 50mm or a 75-150mm zoom I bought for $60 US later on. I recently traded in that lens for a fairly new 80-200mm Vivitar which I haven't used much.
