Photography In Aviation Books

Sun Aug 03, 2003 11:09 am

I was going through some books today, and I can swear I saw some pictures by Airliners.net photographers.

I've seen a lot of plane books, and I NEVER see photo credits. I doubt there is only one photographer nabbing ALL these pictures or that it is solely the author.

What's this about? Any of you ever have a problem with books? Why no credits?

I remember seeing a picture somewhere of a the Peter Max CO 777 of a zoom-in of the front of the plane. I remember it becuase I thought it was a Joe Pries pic or of someone that I knew, and I saw it today in a book "Boeing Widebodies".

my goal is to get a picture on the cover of a book someday.

When I do I am going to buy myself a gold Rolex, with an ice'd out bezel  Big thumbs up

By any chance do you remember the author of the book Phil? Was it this shot below? Hope not because I didn't give permission to anyone. ~Los

Yes, the author was something like Michael Haenggi.

No, not that shot. I am POSITIVE I have seen this shot before. I searched all the Peter Max pics on anet, and its none of them. But I KNOW I've seen it.

This shot was a VERY close-up shot of the nose, and the plane was facing the camera. It only showed like the left side of the cockpit though. Weird shot.

Clickhappy,

Actually, one of your photos is on the July issue of "Airliners" magezine. I was looking at the news section, and saw a photo of the new Northwest colors on a 757 and saw your name at the end of the description of the photo.

I  Love BOI

Yes, if you look at the editorial page, you'll find that Royal is a staff photographer for that magazine, along with a few other familiar names...
