This is an overview of my published photos and award-winning images.



Aviation Week & Space Technology Photo Contest

My first big opportunity to share my photos with a larger audience was in 2005, when three of my images received an Honorable Mention in Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine's annual photo contest. They were published in the December 2005 Photo Contest Issue. Here are two of the images. My favorite (on left) is a floatplane at sunset at Anchorage's Lake Hood. The other print is a United Airlines 777 departing Tokyo's Narita Airport at sunset. Hmmm...sunsets and clouds can make for good images.


Cover Photo--April 2016 Issue of Dispatch

The cover of the April 2016 Dispatch (the official magazine of the Commemorative Air Force) featured one of my images.  This shot shows the Minnesota Wing's Ryan PT-22 Recruit training aircraft piloted by Janaka Buldoc with a Living History Flight passenger waving to the crowd at Lakeville, MN airport.


2015 Commemorative Air Force Photo Contest

This image received a first place award in the CAF's 2015 Photo Contest, which was judged by Caroline Sheen, the photography and illustrations editor at the Smithsonian's Air & Space magazine.  The image depicts Minnesota Wing pilot John Schmidt taxiing the wing's Stinson L-5 at Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

2007 MOAA Photo Contest

My images received two third place awards in the Military Officers Association of American (MOAA) 2007 Photo Contest. The first photo (on left) in the "On Duty" category depicts two Air Force Maintainers repairing a C-130 propeller in Southwest Asia. The second image (Camaraderie category) shows Idaho Army National Guard troops boarding an Air Force Reserve C-130 in Iraq. Both images were shot in late 2005 and were published in the July 2007 issue of Military Officer magazine.



2006 MOAA Photo Contest

In the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) 2006 photo contest, one of my photos received a first place and another a third place award. The winning image (on left, Camaraderie category) shows two maintenance troops crossing the flight line at sunrise. The third place image (On Duty category) illustrates a crew chief marshalling out an Air Force Reserve C-130. The images were published in the July 2006 issue of Military Officer magazine. I shot both images in Southwest Asia in late 2005.


2006 ROA Photo Contest


This image received third place in the Reserve Officers Association (ROA) 2006 photo contest and was published in the ROA's 2007 calendar. The scene shows an Air Force Reserve C-130 in Southwest Asia (SWA) launching for a mission. I also shot this image during a deployment to SWA in late 2005.
