I am am doing a research paper and I picked Avaition Photography as one of my topics. I wanted to know if there are any good sources of information and it has to be 1000 words. If you have any information that would help me with this let me know.


This is the title I thought up.
How Avaition Photography has been a fun and profitable hobby

I forgot where, but someone, a photographer on this website wrote a big report on aviation photography and it was posted on the main page. But, I forgot.

Airplane photography is what I usually do. It involves going to airports and taking pictures of aircraft on the ground or landing and taking off. Aviation photography is more akin to the work of a professional photographer, and can include such diverse subjects as "How an Aircraft is Serviced", or a "A day in the Life of an Airport Security Guard" for instance.

By my own definition (and someone with a business background can confirm this), profit is what is left after operating expenses, wages, benefits and other items are taken out of revenues. Profit is also what is necessary in the eyes of the I.R.S. (here in the States) to remain in business. Once you are considered to be a hobbyist by the I.R.S., your business tax structure goes away, and you cannot claim the purchase of that nice digitial camera as a business investment.

I bring this up to make you question if you are really writing about the subject of aviation photography as you described it-or are you writing about it as you would like it to be? Unfortunately, these are ideals, and they can be very different from each other. Anyway, that's how I see it after pushing the shutter release button for a few decades.

Aviation photography started the same day that Orville and Wilbur Wright made their historic flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina on December 17th, 1903. Some schmuck with a camera (and maybe a ladder, cooler, and lawn-chair) was there and recorded the event, and photographers have followed aircraft around the world ever since.

Y'know Charles, I have always been amazed that there was a photographer present on that day in 1903. That he managed to take a clear, sharp action shot of a flying aircraft with whatever camera he had is impressive too. Think I read somewhere the Wright brothers hired him to document their efforts that day, just in case it worked. Guess no one can say this is an emerging hobby, as our forebears were there on day one.

Now if only he had lined up that shot at Kittyhawk so you could read the reg number........

I suppose the next day some guy came along with a wide angle lens and decided to shoot a close up of one of the props...and thus artistic aviation photography was born.......

And then a well-armed gent in uniform interposed himself between the photographer and subject wagging his finger on the fourth day....and airport security was born....(and didn't change much in the States for the next 98 years).....

And the day after that someone came along with a camera, lawn chair and ....oops, you already did that one.


And on the sixth day the camera guy took a hop and airport overview photography had its start.....

....what do you call six Model-T Fords on a sand dune in North Carolina in 1903?......."Airport parking".......

....H'mm, a warped sense of humor goes well with warped wings......

I gotta stop, I'm killing me.
