Aerial and Aviation Photography

Equipment & Technical

I really don't think that the specific equipment used in fine art photography is that critical, however it is a tool and must perform well. For those interested I use a Nikon F5 and Leica M6 for most of my 35 mm film work. Most of the images from Coney Island, India, Russia, and China are 35mm. For this work, I use Kodak Royal Gold 100 and Fuji Velvia. 

For digital work, I use a Nikon D2X.

For medium format I use a Mamiya 7, often with the 38mm wide angle lens. This camera's optics provide incredibly sharp images. The camera and lenses are small enough to carry while traveling. In the studio and at times on location I use a Mamiya RZ-67 with a full range of lenses.

For larger format projects, I use a Linhof Aero Technica aerial camera, a Horseman 45FA 4x5s, a Cambo 4x5 Legend, a Cambo 8x10 Legend view camera and a Toyo M 8x10 field camera.

I hand print most of my black and white images. For this work I use an Omega D5 with an Illford Multigrade 500 head, a Durst 138S 5x7 and a Fotar 10x10 Horizontal enlarger for large format negatives.

I use Photo Shop for processing digital scans and am doing increasing amount of digital work. 

Bokland Custom Visuals provides printing services fordigitally mastered negatives and transparencies which are then printed on a LightJet 430 Laser printer. I am finding I can make prints up to 48" x 60" from 35mm negatives while maintaining tremendous clarity and definition.
