A note to artists

I am often asked by fellow members of this site, whether or not a photograph of mine can be used either for use as reference or for manipulation as part of another artwork.

The answer to this question is yes, feel free to use any of my photographs for such purposes. I do ask however that if the finished piece is ever uploaded online, that you give me the courtesy of being credited and provide a link to the finished piece.

Avro Tutor Claw Clutch
The Shuttleworth Collection 2018.

This is a view of the claw clutch that is found on the propeller of the Shuttleworth Collection's Avro Tutor. It is used when the aeroplane is connected to a Hucks Starter.

Supermarine Spitfire LF.Vc Rotol Blades/Spinner
This is Supermarine Spitfire LF.Vc "AR501" operated by the Shuttleworth Collection and based at Old Warden. She has recently completed a thirteen year period of deep maintenance and rebuild. During this time under rebuild, the de Havilland three blade constant speed propeller that had been previously been fitted to the machine on which she had flown for many years, was donated to Sheringham Aviation who were rebuilding Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Ia "AR213" back to stock condition. Not only did this allow a very rare Spitfire to fly in her original condition, but also paved the way for Shuttleworth to bring their own Spitfire up to Mk.V stock condition with the fitting of a set of Rotal blades.

For those wondering about "AR213", she is still active and flies with the donated de Havilland propeller. Of course she is now under new ownership, that of Commanche Fighters LLC and is based at Imperial War Museum Duxford. Some of you may have seen her very recently in the movie Dunkirk.

I'm trying to gauge my own perceptions against those of others. So for those who have been watching my work for a while, how would you rate the images I have been uploading recently compared to images caught before I jumped to Nikon back in January.

I'm greatly impressed by your amazing gallery! Your aviation photos are some of the very best I've seen on dA. It was hard to pick only a few favorites because all of them are great. Thank you for sharing your works!

Thank you very much indeed for the very kind words, I am very pleased that you liked what you saw from my gallery. It's been a fun ten year journey learning to shoot aviation, so am always glad to hear that others enjoy looking at them as much as I did shooting them. :)

Hi, it’s the spitfire/hurricane guy :D 

I was wondering, I was thinking about getting a new canon SLR as mine’s quite old now but i’m a bit unsure on what to get. Been out of the market for a while. Can you give me any suggestions? :)

It's rather hard to advise without some kind of knowledge of the kind of budget you are working to or what your expectations are. For example, are we talking brand new, or are you hoping to save some money by buying used etc.

Ah man I have always wanted to go to an air show! Lucky! How was it?

The show on Sunday was excellent, we were treated to some excellent flying in great weather. It was far from my first airshow though. I've been attending airshows since the early 1990s and it is a hobby for me along with capturing aircraft on camera. The amount of airshows I've visited over the years could be counted in the hundreds.
