A great photographer and my good friend, Josh Akbar, has just reached the massive 1,000 photos here on Airliners.net.

Josh is by far one of the most knowledgable and skillful people I know. I also owe much of my aviation photography career to him, as without his patience, kindness, and Toyota Camry, I wouldn't have most of the memories and photos I have today.

I highly recommend his unique collection of photos on this site to all of you - with just the right combination of creativity and simplicity, he pulls off some truly great photos.

Some of my favorites:

Congratulations, Josh, and thanks!

Well done Josh,

In the caption for his 1000th photo Josh mentions the people he has met thru his aviation photography.

I have to say that the very long day we spent photographing planes together at SYD in October was one of the most pleasurable days I have spent since taking up this hobby!

Well done JA looking forward to the next 1000!

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!....well that might have changed!!!

Thanks so much for the very touching note, Brian. It meant a lot to me, and I couldn't ask for a better friend.  Smile

And to Tom, Eric, Chris, Monty, Chris, Malcolm, Justin, Art, Tim, Stefan, Alan and Kaz (and all my NYCA and worldwide spotting friends)....I cannot thank you enough for your kind words. To think that I have the privilege of being surrounded by -- and in many of your cases, having the pleasure of knowing personally -- such wonderful people...it is a great feeling, indeed.

Thanks, guys!

Josh
