My name is Jonathan and I am 43 and live in Ilchester, Somerset. Within this site you will find photographs of military and civilian aircraft which I have shot all over the UK at various events, bases and also from the Salisbury Plain Exercise Area. I have enjoyed the world of aviation for over 30 years which lead me on to my passion of aviation photography, there is no better feeling when you have captured that image you have been after for a long time.
I started photography with a Practica film camera and have progressed to the Nikon DSLR setup I have now, the digital age has made the capture of images a more pleasurable experience especially as you have instant gratification and do not have to wait for those prints to come in the post.
My favorite location is the Salisbury Plain Training Area, not only do get to spend time in the great outdoors sometimes alone which gives you some time to ponder the world or with great friends that I have made along the way. Also the mix of locations and types of helicopters you can photograph always keeps me wanting to go back for more.
Gear that I currently use.
Nikon 50mm F1.8G
Sigma 500mm F4.5 APO EX
Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 - Latest version
