Hi Adam,

Thanks for the kind words, I'm glad that you like my work. Maybe we'll meet up at YUL sometime.

Cheers,

Of course, there is also Joe Pries and Air Nikon. But the photos I wanted to post have already been posted.

That's a tough question. There are so many excellent photogaphers, with beautiful composition, light, and picture quality, I'm not willing to say one is the "best."

However, if I have to pick a favorite, I'd have to say John Stewart. He's contributed many photos of rare and historic airlines, some of these photos are taken all the way back in the '60's. Many airlines that I grew up with--Mohawk, Allegheny, People Express--when I look them up, often the best (or only) shots are by John Stewart. He also has contributed a large record of first-round Deregulation knockouts.

When I recently went looking for a shot of Best Airlines, a small DC-9-10 operator that flew into my hometown ROC during the 1980's, I was not surprised to see that the single shot of a Best a/c in the whole database was by Stewart! And it was crisp and well-composed, with bright light and accurate color tinting.

BTW AirNikon gets a very honorable mention in this area.

Jim

Im no where near the best on Airliners!

There are way to many good photgraphers on this site and I think its impossible to pick the best one.
