Photography Forum | I'm not going to submit this one...
And despite the fact that they lap the circuit every minute and a half for two hours while planes are landing at about the same frequency - week in, week out - I've waited years for that shot to line up! And I've had emails from three other cycling photographers saying they've never managed to get one yet!
what that man says
a.net and the rest have ruined aviation photography by imposing rigid standards on the hobby. Everything needs to comply to their rules to get published. It's meant that a lot of pictures with stories in them don't see the light of day, like this one.
Those who know me on a personal basis know I'm very much into the old school where a picture should tell a story. In fact it's not even old school. However that's my personal take and taste; I like to see images where there is something going on and not just a boring slab-side image of yet another boring 777 at a boring factory in a boring town called Seattle. Which is all certain sites seem to want to show.
people get down on Sam Chui for the money he spends on his hobby as he's from a wealthy family. However
1. he does brilliant, story-telling pictures like the LAX departures
2. If you could, wouldn't you be doing just the same?
I think he's utterly brilliant for the stories his pictures tell.
Aircraft photography seems to have evolved it's own peculiar set of rules, and as Whitehatter mentions they are somewhat rigid. Nice to see something different.
ps its one of my fav pic sites and one ive supported from the start
