Air-to-Air photography is for many photographers the ultimate
way to photograph aircraft in their natural environment, the sky. Making
the big step to Air-to-Air photography can be very difficult. Opportunities
to fly for pictures are very sparse, and mostly done by only a handful
of experience photographers who keep the opportunities for themselves.
The Air-to-Air Academy is a non-profit organisation with the goal of
sharing our experience in the field of airborne photography with other
photographers from around the world. Not only on the ground, but also
in the air we'll share our photoflight opportunities with motivated photographers.
The concept was invented by the Aviation PhotoCrew in 2009, when many
of their friends kept on sending emails on how they could join them on
their many photoflight missions. Our prefered photoship, the Shorts Skyvan,
can take up to 11 photographers on board, so it is an ideal aircraft to
take guest photographers in the air for their first Air-to-Air photoshoot.
