Imaging has been a part of my life since the early 1980s but I've always been "that guy" who stops to look up at passing aircraft.
I spent nearly 30 years working in some form of video production and I still work on the occasional project today. This led to a 15-year freelance career at the network level in which I worked NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NCAA, PGA, LPGA, NASCAR broadcasts for FOX Sports, NBC, ABC, CBS, TNT and ESPN. Along the way, I was blessed to be on the receiving end of eight Emmy Awards for Outstanding Team Technical Remote.
In 2010, after countless airline flights and hotel beds, I decided to apply my creative skills to photography and combined with my existing passion for aviation, Crosswind Images was born. In just a few short years, I've managed to contribute to calendars, books, magazines and I was even on the cover of the 2012 Aviation Week & Space Technology "Photo and Art" edition. I am a member of the International Society For Aviation Photography, and the Arizona Aviation Photographers.
I'm actively seeking aircraft owners and pilots who would like to have their aircraft photographed or who might consider doing a sunrise or sunset portrait session of or with their airplane! I'm also on the lookout for opportunities to do feature stories on just about any home-built, classic or warbird as well.
I value feedback from visitors so if you feel an image is particularly worthwhile, I'd love to hear from you via email, or come find me on Facebook. I prefer to pre-approve all orders from my website. This may slow the delivery process just a little but it will ensure that my customers get the very best quality prints.
I reside in the greater Phoenix area with my wife, Kristen and in our spare time, we are domestic staff for our cats, Jet and Bella.
I shoot with Canon EOS digital cameras and Canon EF lenses and I do all my post processing work in Adobe products.
Crosswind Images also maintains a presence on Facebook, Instagram and I'm on Twitter from time to time as well.
