Younger Generation Of Photographers

Mon Jan 21, 2002 9:11 am

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

I think the "Younger Generation" (like me! 16) can shot pictures just like Pro. I had been laughed by many people but I never ashamed of myself because I'm PROUD of my hobby!

Oh man, I feel terrible.  Sad
I just almost barfed..
Damm spaggetti!  Angry

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 20, and I have been going to Runway 16 or 35 at Denver International consistently now. I take pics of planes, but I am yet to get a single photo accepted on here. But I know that I will prevail. Big grin

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.

I'm 14, and in the span of one year, I took over 400 photos. Of course, over 400 are no good and will never make it on here, so I take pics because I like them, not to try and put them online here.

I am 18 and I've been taking pictures/spotting planes when I was about 13 years old. I used to use an old Nikon point and shoot camera and it was fun. Now with some experience, I managed to get an SLR and shooting slide film. I have several pictures on this site and I will hopefully have more later this year and the upcoming years. Another good photographer I know is my friend Stephen Dobbins who is 18 years old. Sometimes him and I will go shooting at DCA, BWI, or IAD.

Hopefully in the future as an airline or corporate pilot, I will take some in-flight cockpit shots and overviews of airports and landing shots.  Smile

22 here and just making the transition to KR64. Shot a couple rolls of it so far, currently there's a roll of Reala sitting in my camera but it's probably the last roll of it I'll use for planes (I have one more unused roll I'll use for something else). I have a roll of Provia to try out but I've pretty much decided to shoot Kodachrome.

gday ppl.
im 15 and have had my first good camera for 1 year now. its a canon eos 3000. great camera and evrything u would need to take every shot possible. my dad is 50 and has ben an amazing photographer since he was young too. he taught me everything i know. I go down to the airport evry day on my bike with my camera in my bag. i go through mud and bush and climb over fences to get to the airport as quickly as possible. when im there i sit back, relax and take only good photos. its a small airport with light planeas and the biggest thing there is a citation 2. but i love taking photos of the little planes in the evening. Its the best thing i do.

I am 21 and have been spotting seriously for about 3 years now. Unfortunaly my camera is not very good, so I have no photo's of a.net quality yet (grainy photo's because the lense is too small). I am saving for a new camera with a better lense.

I go mostly to Schiphol, but I also visit Rotterdam (NL), Woensdrecht (NL) and Dusseldorf frequently.

I'm 24. Worked in aviation since 17. Now getting a bit fed up with aviation as a worker at 24 but still love to take pictures.

Biggest buzz? Selling my photos and seeing them elsewhere.

Well guys, I am just getting started. I do not yet have a single photograph on a.net. I just got an Nikon F5 3 weeks ago, I love it! I still have to get lenses for it.
I am just about 17 years old and have an F5, sound good?  Smile This is my very first personal camera, I thought I might as well go to the good stuff instead of burning money on cheaper less quality equipment.

Your opinions.

Your right Thom@s, I took that with my 50mm. In fact, the first two photos I ever got accepted here were taken with a disposible camera! Of course, that was when the standards were a little less harsh  Smile

Im 19 now and have been photographing since I was 15. Mr. Carlos Borda was the man who taught me all I needed to know about this great hobby during the days I went to Hong Kong Kai Tak to start my new obsession back in 97/98. Since then I have used PHX and LAX as airports to practice and sharpen my skills for when I non rev over the pacific/atlantic on photographing missions. I have never been to motivated to go through all the hassle of scanning up photos, but I think maybe I should start to try and share. Its great to know there are so many people my age out there enjoying this hobby!

Cheers!

Hi everybody,

I am 19 years old and shoot aircraft seriously since I was 16. I started with prints and moved to Fuji Sensia 100 slides about two years ago.
