What Are Your Fave's Airports For Photography?

Thu Jun 03, 2004 8:46 pm

Which airport is everyone's faveourite in terms of photography spots??? I dont mean variety of traffic or what not, this is purely based on the amount of locations to shoot from, the ease of shooting (decks/areas) and basically how friendly the authorities are towards it!

Manchester has the correct idea about photography. The authorities there are okay about it. The areas available to take pictures from are so varied. its fantastic. Which is why, it is one of the most photographed airports on a.net. Or atleast it seems that way. Its like AMS for volume of photographers. Obviously not like AMS for traffic :P but close for access

Incidentally, today's top picture is really interesting. Nice to have an aerial view of every single spot we went to that Saturday!

As Martin already stated, there's only one airport that is picturesque, friendly, loads of traffic, interesting weather to add that extra dimension to your photo's, many many good spots etcetera.

AMS

Be sure to bring extra compactflash cards or rolls with you.

Kind regards,

Really Justin, anyone would think there isn't much variety there. You forgot the ERJ145's. Both of them.
