Boston Photos

Fri Jun 07, 2002 8:44 pm

Greetings Everyone,

First of all I would like to thank all of you. I have been enjoying all your pictures for years. All of you are an invaluable asset to aviation and the airline industry. I am truly humbled by the response my photos are receiving.

I'm basically a guy who knows a little about photography who has been bringing his camera and, "cheap Nikkor lens" to work almost every day for 25 plus years. This scanning and digital darkroom stuff was all new to me. Your advice in this forum, screener comments and about $2000 later I think I'm getting the hang of it.

Working for Airport Operations I do have full access to Logan Airport, but there is also a huge responsibility that comes with that. I'm sure I don't have to get into the details. There are some days that I wish someone would chase me off the airport or tell me to go home.

I now have 102 pictures posted, 11 of which are digital from a Cannon G-1. The Midway 737 at the hold line is one of them. I do use Elite Chrome 100 now, but some of my older photos are a mix of K64 and some negative and Ectachrome 100.

Again, Thanks to all. I never expected this kind of response. Thanks Chris & Vasco.

Rudy, what can I say. I am jealous that's all!
Not that you have ramp access, no live and work at an airport which in my opinion is one of the greatest for aviation photography. Some of you guys may disagree but just check out Mark's, Rudy's and James' work. A lot of stunning photographs.

The combination of the ocean, great light conditions, airplanes and skyline is hard to beat. Frankfurt or some other European airports may have the traffic but they certainly don't have the scenery.

Anyway enough of this!

Rudy welcome to the forum and keep those great shots coming. It was good meeting up with you while I was in Boston and watch out for my Boston shots ( Maybe not as good as yours as I am just a SECOND CLASS PHOTOGRAPHER)

p.s. did you get my recent e-mail?

For some reason, your photos seem very subtle, and so interesting! Big grin
I love all the straight-on closeups..  Smile

Don't worry ghost77, I was just experimenting with a digital camera. It belonged to a colleague. I will always be a slide/print person.

About Airport Operations

Sun Jun 09, 2002 2:43 pm


I understand if there's some sensitive details of your job that can't get out and of course you've been at it for so long so you're not "entry level" but what kinds of careers are available in "airport operations"? so many of the aviation-related "entry level" jobs I've seen pay astonishingly little (well, here in the USA anyway - some of you foreign guys get paid better). What's involved in "operations"? I know, besides the guy who has to mow the lawn between the runways or plow the snow!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Do you find that a lot of your co-workers are to some degree enthusiastic about aviation?
