You might try contacting some of the DFW shooters who post pictures here, or do a Google search for places to shoot from.

The shot you referenced was taken from the control tower. You need to know someone who can get you up there, have a press pass, or both. Or maybe get a job as an ATC  Smile

For me that is the thousand dollar question. For my home airport, I haven't been able to figure that out yet.
